Modeling Free Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics® with Moving Mesh
You can model free liquid surfaces that do not undergo topology changes using moving mesh functionality in the COMSOL® software. Here’s a thorough guide on how to do so.
Two Methods for Modeling Free Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics®
We take you through 2 methods for modeling free surfaces in the COMSOL® software: the level set and phase field methods. Learn how to use each method and their benefits.
Improving IFE Target Fabrication with a Droplet Microfluidics Method
A common joke is that fusion energy is 30 years away, and always will be. Researchers are using simulation to tackle the challenges involved with of inertial fusion energy target production.
Analyzing a New Droplet-Forming Fluidic Junction with Simulation
A novel oscillatory microfluidic junction design, called a “batwing”, is improving the field of droplet microfluidics by consistently producing uniform and complex double-emulsion droplets.
Understand Phenomena in the Viscous Catenary Problem via Simulation
The viscous catenary problem is theoretically and experimentally significant in many industries due to the complex phenomena it entails. Simulation can help us understand this problem.
Designing Inkjet Printheads for Precise Material Deposition
The design of an inkjet printhead nozzle is important in order for the device to have precise material deposition, whether it is used in a 2D or 3D printer.
Designing Effective Transdermal Drug Delivery Patches with Simulation
Transdermal drug delivery (TDD) patches continuously deliver drugs into the body for a certain amount of time. However, the skin is designed to keep out foreign substances, like drugs. To create a TDD patch that successfully bypasses this barrier, simulation can be used to study drug release and absorption into the skin. To analyze this process, Veryst Engineering created a TDD patch model with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and compared the results to experimental data.
Evaluating an Insulin Micropump Design for Treating Diabetes
In any form of treatment, it is always desirable to minimize the level of discomfort that the treatment process causes patients, while ensuring overall safety and effectiveness. For diabetes patients, insulin injections remain an important form of treatment, but the process itself can be painful. With the help of multiphysics simulation, a team of researchers from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology sought to develop a MEMS-based micropump that could administer insulin injections in a safe and painless way.
