An Introduction to the Physics of Rapid Detection Tests

April 20, 2021

Rapid detection tests based on lateral flow assay (LFA), also called immunochromatographic tests, can be thought of as quite advanced, yet very robust, microlaboratories. (Part 1 of 2)

Modeling Droplet Flow in an Open Space with COMSOL Multiphysics®

November 23, 2020

If you are jogging six feet apart from someone else, should you both be wearing masks? Simulation was used to analyze the motion of particles between two runners in an open space to find answers.

It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…Gravity-Defying Spiders!

October 27, 2020

Spider ballooning, in which spiders float for miles, was originally observed by Charles Darwin in 1832. Since then, researchers from University of Bristol used simulation to study this effect.

The Growing Use of Simulation in Pharmaceutical Development

September 17, 2020

Did you know that the development cycle of a drug can take years and cost millions of dollars? Simulation is 1 way to make pharmaceutical development processes faster and more cost effective.

Optimizing an NIV Mask Design with Multiphysics Simulation

August 13, 2020

NIV masks offer a form of noninvasive monitoring and ventilation for COVID-19 patients, which lessens the need for ventilators and other mechanical respirators.

Computing the HRTF of a Scanned Geometry of a Human Head

July 14, 2020

Designing cochlear implants, hearing aids, headphones, and other audio devices requires precise measurements of the head-related transfer function (HRTF). Simulation and geometry import can help.

Modeling the Spread of COVID-19 with COMSOL Multiphysics®

April 7, 2020

From susceptible to exposed and infected to recovered: See how numerical modeling can help us understand the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it spreads.

Modeling a Pacemaker Electrode in COMSOL Multiphysics®

March 19, 2020

What happens when the heart doesn’t pump the way it should? Pacemakers maintain the heart rate by monitoring natural electrical signals. Pacemaker electrodes are a key part of these devices.
