Happy Birthday, Joseph Fourier

March 21, 2021

From heat conduction and the Fourier series to the greenhouse effect and Fourier transform, Joseph Fourier’s research has many implications in the modern world.

Combining Adaptive Mesh Refinement with Data Filtering

March 19, 2021

In a follow-up to our previous blog post on data filtering, we demonstrate how to implement adaptive mesh refinement and a Helmholtz filter for a thermal model with a nonuniform heat load.

Using Data Filtering to Improve Model Performance

March 17, 2021

Want to include experimental data in your model as a load or boundary condition, but the data varies over space or time and is noisy? Try implementing data filtering, such as a Helmholtz filter.

How to Model a Hall Effect Sensor with COMSOL Multiphysics®

March 11, 2021

Basic working principle of a Hall effect sensor: A nearby magnetic field deflects the path of current through a semiconductive sensor, which causes a measurable change in potential.

Top 3 Reasons to Attend a COMSOL Day in 2021

Gain inspiration from the simulation community, learn skills to improve your modeling, and choose from industry-focused events — all from the comfort of your own workstation, free of charge.

Which Radiation Interface Should I Use for My Heat Transfer Model?

March 4, 2021

Compared to the mechanisms of heat transfer by conduction and convection, heat transfer by radiation has unique characteristics. How should you account for radiation in your heat transfer models?

A Quiet Revolution: Analyzing Electric Motor Noise via Simulation

March 2, 2021

The sound we hear from electric-powered machines is a multiphysics phenomenon: A motor’s electromagnetic activity sends vibrations through both the machine and the surrounding air.

Editing and Repairing Imported Meshes in COMSOL Multiphysics®
