Heat Transfer in Biological Tissue with Thermal Damage Analysis
Hepatic tumor ablation using radiofrequency heating, microwave coagulation therapy, and other cancer treatments can be studied by modeling the electromagnetic heating of biological tissues.
Analyzing the Acoustics of a Head and Torso Simulator
Acoustics engineers designing hearing aids, cellphones, and headphones can perform standardized measurements faster and cheaper with simulation, as shown in this example.
Understanding the Drug Reaction Kinetics of Nerve Guides via Modeling
Ever had a pinched nerve? Nerve guides repair this type of damaged nerve cell tissue. To design safe and reliable nerve guides, we can use simulation to understand their drug reaction kinetics.
Analyzing an Arterial Self-Expanding Stent with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Interested in bioengineering? Read this overview of a self-expanding arterial stent modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics® with an implemented shape memory alloy material.
Keynote Video: Designing Improved Heart Pumps with Simulation
Abbott Laboratories designed “the most complex machine ever implanted into a human being” — an LVAD for heart failure patients — using multiphysics modeling. The result? Saved lives.
Studying Presbyopia with an Optomechanical Model of the Human Eye
You have to see this multiphysics simulation research: To help combat the effects of presbyopia in aging eyes, Kejako built a 3D optomechanical model of a full human eye.
Seeing Through Solids: Discovery and Applications of Photoacoustics
The field of photoacoustics started with Alexander Graham Bell and some sunlight. Now, photoacoustic imaging is used for nearly anything involving generating images of opaque material samples.
Optimizing ISFET Designs with Multiphysics Simulation
Ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) measure pH levels for soil analysis, the production of dairy products, and more. Multiphysics simulation can help us optimize these devices.
