Simulating Wind Load on a Sports Car’s Side Door and Mirror

May 27, 2021

Vroom vroom: In this blog post, we use large eddy simulation (LES) and structural analysis to analyze wind loads and airflow on the door and side mirror of a sports car driving at high speeds.

What Is the Difference Between Plane Stress and Plane Strain?

May 20, 2021

We go over the formulations and constitutive models that you can use to study plane stress, plane strain, and generalized plane strain in your solid mechanics problems.

Why Do Tennis Rackets Tumble? The Dzhanibekov Effect Explained…

September 1, 2020

If you toss a cellphone, tennis racket, wingnut, cereal box, or any object with 3 axes of rotation in the air, it will demonstrate this interesting and unusual effect…

How Do Bicycle Pedals Stay On?

August 27, 2020

Ever wonder why the left pedal of a bike has left-handed threads and the right pedal has right-handed threads, yet the pedals stay on when riding?

What Is the Best Way to Analyze Fuel Tank Vibration?

August 4, 2020

In a traditional approach for modeling a fuel tank, the fluid mass is dispersed through the tank’s wetted surface. A multiphysics method specifically models the acoustic pressure in the fluid.

How to Model a Chain Drive in COMSOL Multiphysics®

April 9, 2020

You’ve already learned how to use built-in geometry parts to model roller chain sprocket assemblies. Now, learn how to use the geometry as an input to automatically generate a chain drive model.

Building Roller Chain Geometries in the Multibody Dynamics Module

February 13, 2020

You can easily set up a geometry model of a roller chain, sprocket, or roller chain sprocket assembly using the built-in parametric geometry parts in the COMSOL Multiphysics Part Library.

How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®

February 6, 2020

How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.
