It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s…Gravity-Defying Spiders!
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.
Exploring the Ambiguity of Hardness Numbers with COMSOL®
To help customers easily obtain stress-strain curves from indentation test data, this guest blogger turned to simulation applications and COMSOL Compiler™ — and created a brand new product.
Implementing a Damage Evolution Law for a Hyperelastic Material
By implementing a physically motivated damage evolution law for a hyperelastic material, you can incorporate material softening, creep, and stabilization of hysteresis curves during cycling.
Estimating Hyperelastic Material Parameters via a Lap Joint Shear Test
For rubber, polymers, and biological tissue, the relationship between stress and strain is nonlinear, even at small loads. The lap joint shear test can be used to determine material properties.
A Simulation App for Helical Spring Design and Analysis
Helical springs are found everywhere from medical devices to consumer and industrial products. Despite being commonplace for centuries, the design of a helical spring can be complex.
Teaching Transport Phenomena to Engineering Students with Apps
Dr. Amol Deshpande from BITS Pilani, Goa Campus is moving beyond traditional classroom lectures by building simulation apps that students use to visualize heat transfer and fluid flow concepts.
Optimizing an NIV Mask Design with Multiphysics Simulation
NIV masks offer a form of noninvasive monitoring and ventilation for COVID-19 patients, which lessens the need for ventilators and other mechanical respirators.
Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis
Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.
