Analyzing Topology Optimization of a Photoacoustic Spectroscopy Cell
Signals generated via photoacoustic spectroscopy are often weak and difficult to detect. Acoustic cells can be used to amplify the signal, but they need to be designed with sensitivity in mind.
Comparing Optimization Methods for a Heat Sink Design for 3D Printing
When designing a heat sink, is it better to use parametric or topology optimization? When manufacturing said design, does 3D printing produce the best result, or a conventional method?
Performing Topology Optimization with the Density Method
The density method simplifies the process of topology optimization. Get an overview of how to use a special density feature for topology optimization in the COMSOL® software.
How to Analyze a Glacier via Gradient-Based Optimization
This post highlights a gradient-based optimization method that geophysical engineers can use to analyze, for instance, the movement and sensitivity of a glacier.
Optimizing Thermal Processes in Carbon Manufacturing with Simulation
A guest blogger from SGL Carbon GmbH demonstrates how his organization uses heat transfer simulation to optimize thermal processes in carbon manufacturing.
How to Perform Multimaterial Optimization in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Does a tuning fork sound better when made out of aluminum instead of copper or steel? In COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can perform an optimization study for multiple materials to find out.
Topology Optimization of a Magnetic Circuit for Loudspeakers
By optimizing the topology of loudspeaker components, such as magnetic circuits, we can develop speaker designs that are portable, lightweight, and high quality.
Advancing Additive Manufacturing with Sequential Simulations
In some ways, additive manufacturing is like sewing or weaving. We talk to a professor of additive manufacturing about how sequential simulations can be used to analyze and optimize the process.
