How to Model the Spread of Pollution in a Room

Phil Kinnane | July 10, 2012

During the last few months, we have been offering “lunch time tutorials” for users and others interested in multiphysics modeling. In these webinar-run tutorials, we choose an application and spend a bit of time looking at it, and how to model it in detail. We’ve already reported about an example that models a gate valve and now we are ready to offer an example related to pollution, namely that of a particle plume that spreads throughout a room.

We’ve been running these “Lunch Time Web Tutorials” over the past couple of months, featuring 45 minutes of solving a particular problem following a comprehensive step-by-step format. Each webisode involves a different type of engineering problem, one of which focused on the modeling of a gate valve in a pipe branch. We are now making this available as a set of two videos for those who missed the live tutorial.

One project that has been really exciting to work with is a resource CD for our users and prospects. Called the Chemical Showcase, we will soon be offering this to engineers and scientists who are interested in modeling, and want to apply this to chemical engineering, battery, fuel cell, reactor and electrochemical applications. One of the fun things about producing the Showcase was recording this nifty chemical engineering video…

I noticed a lot of activity when I posted the question concerning “FEM vs FVM” in a previous blog post, so I started looking into it a bit. A lot of people went to the COMSOL Discussion Forum thread on the matter, from the blog, which got me thinking that this must be a hot topic out there. Not Much Debate How disappointed I was when I typed ‘FEM vs FVM’ into Google and saw that there wasn’t much to […]

The release of Version 4.2a was an exciting event for us at COMSOL. I had the opportunity to see a preview of new products and the big one for me was the Particle Tracing Module. Many of our customers and colleagues in the simulation industry had been requesting this for quite some time. I must admit that I thought it was just because they wanted a different type of postprocessing feature; another way of looking at streamlines.

The manager of our Palo Alto Office, John Dunec, has been running some lunch tutorials that show the building of models. His latest one, which was presented last Tuesday, showed how flow in a building can be modeled.

Many devices live with a dry, technical name that either basically says what the device does, or is an acronym of that dry, technical name. Very few get a nickname that sticks to become the industry standard.

The Particle Tracing Module webinar was a huge success. Over 1,250 people signed up for it and saw our lead developer, Dan Smith, demonstrate the product and explain the science behind it. He received a lot of questions during the webinar, and our support engineers are currently helping him answer them.

Alla har vi väl velat bli osynliga vid ett eller annat tillfälle. Som Dagens Nyheter och Ny Teknik nyligen rapporterade om har vi på COMSOL dragit vårt strå till stacken. Forskare använder COMSOL Multiphysics för att simulera och designa avancerade metamaterial. Redan idag finns det högeffektiva antenner och i framtiden går det kanske att skapa akustiska mantlar, båtskrov med lägre vattenmotstånd eller osynlighetsmantlar. Det lär nog dröja ett tag innan en hel människa försvinner in i mörkret bakom en osynlighetsmantel […]
