Paper Mechanics and the Benefits of Modeling Paperboard Formation
Get a quick introduction to paper mechanics before guest blogger Eric Linvill discusses modeling a L&W bending resistance test piece for cost-benefit analyses in paperboard production.
Keynote Video: Optimizing Cable Systems via Simulation
The length of cable for a mode of transportation depends on the amount of passengers, so a car uses ~5 km of cable and a cruise ship uses ~5000 km. Learn more about cable system design here.
Keynote Video: EPFL Uses Simulation to Design a Hyperloop Pod
The EPFLoop team used multiphysics simulation to design the aeroshell, pressure vessel, and braking system of their hyperloop pod for the SpaceX 2018 competition. Get an inside look here.
Keynote Video: Enhancing STEM Education with Simulation
Ivana Milanovic uses simulation to teach undergraduate students in her science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, as she explains in her COMSOL Conference 2018 presentation.
Evaluating a Fire-Resistant Overpack for Nuclear Waste
Confinement system overpacks are used to safely store radioactive waste. Sogin uses heat transfer modeling to design safe and reliable overpacks that are resistant to fire.
Keynote Video: Simulating the Drying of Cellular Foods
How about them (dried) apples? Empa uses multiscale modeling to analyze the dehydration of soft cellular food products, such as dried fruit, and scale their processes for mass production.
Keynote Video: Improving Synchrotron Light Sources with Applications
For synchrotron light sources, brighter is better: RadiaSoft LLC creates and deploys wave optics simulation applications to design improved vacuum chambers for a synchrotron upgrade project.
Keynote Video: Designing Lightning Protection Systems with Simulation
Can lightning strike the same place twice? Either way, it is challenging to model. When designing lightning protection systems, NTS Lightning Technologies turned to multiphysics simulation.
