Modeling and Simulation of Multiphase Flow in COMSOL®: Part 1
Multiphase flow can be modeled on scales ranging from fractions of microns to tens of meters. Get an overview of the dispersed and separated multiphase flow models for different types of flow.
What Is Gauge Fixing? A Theoretical Introduction
Investigate the consequences of Helmholtz’s theorem when applied to Maxwell’s equations, and when using scalar and vector potentials to represent physical fields.
Strategies to Counter Small Automatic Time Steps
When solving a model, you may encounter a varying time step and discretization order, or NLfail or Tfail could be greater than 0. Use these strategies to improve the efficiency of the simulation.
Thermal Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Heat Transfer in Porous Media
Heat transfer in porous media can occur under thermal equilibrium, such as a rock consisting of different minerals or trapped fluids, or nonequilibrium, like a thermal energy storage (TES) unit.
Modeling Darcian and Non-Darcian Flow in Porous Media
Get an introduction to the theory behind modeling flow in porous media, including the Kozeny–Carman, Forchheimer, Ergun, Burke–Plummer, and Navier–Stokes equations.
How to Predict the Fatigue Life of Welds
After an introduction to the welding process and weld geometries, we compare the nominal stress method, notch stress method, and hot spot stress methods for predicting the fatigue life of welds.
How to Perform Lens Simulations Using the Wave Optics Module
Lens simulations in wave optics can be difficult to perform, as they usually require a lot of mesh elements. Learn how to sidestep this issue using the functionality of the Wave Optics Module.
Making Structures Stronger by Removing Material
To make a structure stronger, sometimes you have to take material away instead of adding more. We go over concepts like fillets, load paths, and displacement control to demonstrate this concept.
