How to Import an ECAD Geometry for Printed Circuit Board Design
We demonstrate how to import an ECAD geometry into COMSOL Multiphysics® for the design of a printed circuit board. The example features an actual PCB geometry from a company in the industry.
Studying Stress in Threaded Pipe Fitting Designs from CAD Assemblies
Threaded pipes are durable, reliable, and resistant to damage from heat and stress. You can combine a CAD assembly of a threaded pipe with a COMSOL Multiphysics® analysis to study its design.
Analyzing the Mechanical Performance of a Tricycle Frame Design
Tricycles have 3 wheels and countless uses due to their extra support and load capacity. Design a tricycle that meets safety requirements by analyzing its mechanical performance.
Designing a Sensor Package for a High-G Accelerometer via Simulation
To design a piezoresistive sensor package for a high-G accelerometer, researchers turned to multiphysics analysis. They then verified the simulation results with experimental data.
Building COMSOL Multiphysics® Models with Excel® and Visual Basic®
Say you want to base your model on data kept in the Excel® spreadsheet software. Using LiveLink™ for Excel®, you can interface between the spreadsheet and the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
How to Analyze Beam Sections Using the Beam Section Calculator
Simulation applications can be used as utility tools to compute the properties and parameters of a component or device. In this example, the application analyzes beam section geometries.
How to Analyze Your SOLIDWORKS® Designs with an App
For many years, it’s been possible to analyze synchronized CAD geometries in COMSOL Multiphysics® via the LiveLink™ interfacing products. But did you know that you can also incorporate this functionality into an easy-to-use simulation app? With an app, you can dynamically modify your geometry in a CAD program such as SOLIDWORKS® and use this information to analyze new product designs. Today, we will demonstrate how to do so, using the new Bike Frame Analyzer app as an example.
Studying the Migration of Mineral Oil Hydrocarbons in Food Packaging
Food packaging is often composed of recycled materials, like newspapers or plastic, which may contain residual mineral oil inks. Traces of these potentially hazardous substances leftover from the recycled materials can migrate from the packaging to the stored food. To account for this, one research team developed a numerical model to analyze the migration patterns of mineral oil hydrocarbons for various packaging situations. Compared to experimental studies, their approach offers a more efficient and cost-effective way of optimizing food safety.
