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.

Using Transfer-Matrix Computation to Analyze Wax Guard Acoustics

January 28, 2020

The wax guard is an important part of a hearing aid, as it can improve the functionality and overall lifespan. We feature an acoustics model of a wax guard based on an actual industry example.

Developing a Silicon MEMS Chip for On-Demand DNA Synthesis

January 21, 2020

The development of genome editing tools like CRISPR-Cas9 has increased the demand for DNA synthesis technology. Researchers are creating a DNA synthesis platform to broaden horizons in the field.

Heat Transfer in Biological Tissue with Thermal Damage Analysis

November 21, 2019

Hepatic tumor ablation using radiofrequency heating, microwave coagulation therapy, and other cancer treatments can be studied by modeling the electromagnetic heating of biological tissues.
