5 Fun Facts to Celebrate Fibonacci Day
Fun fact: The Fibonacci sequence can be found in flowers, pine cones, tree branches, and shells.
Predicting the Effects of Induction Heating with Simulation
What is induction heating? What are the benefits of it? Can it be simulated with COMSOL Multiphysics? Keep reading to find out…
Möbius Strips: Where Math Meets Art
The Möbius strip was simultaneously and independently discovered by two German mathematicians in the 1850s. Today, this one-sided object is found in tools, art, nature, and more.
Modeling the Permeability of Composite Reinforcement Materials
Here, we go over how to model the permeability constant of an idealized composite reinforcement material.
Forming New Ideas with Generative Design in COMSOL®
Pencils were invented in the 16th century and erasers in the 18th century. However, it wasn’t until the 19th century that erasers were attached to pencils in the typical design we know today.
Optimizing Solar Cell Designs with a Simulation App
The SolCelSim app, designed by an MSc student at the University of Zilina, enables researchers to simulate solar cell designs, even if they are unfamiliar with simulation software.
Extracting DNA: From Pumpkins to Mammoths
Here, we go over how to recover DNA from a pumpkin using a simple experiment, as well as how scientists made a recent breakthrough in DNA extraction research.
Why Do Road and Mountain Bikes Have Different Spoke Patterns?
Why do some bicycle rims come with warnings? Why do some bicyclists prefer rim brakes? To find answers, we model the forces in a bicycle rim for different brake types and spoke lacing patterns.
