How to Predict the Fatigue Life of Welds
After an introduction to the welding process and weld geometries, we compare the nominal stress method, notch stress method, and hot spot stress methods for predicting the fatigue life of welds.
Making Structures Stronger by Removing Material
To make a structure stronger, sometimes you have to take material away instead of adding more. We go over concepts like fillets, load paths, and displacement control to demonstrate this concept.
Optimizing Composite Wheel Rim Designs with COMSOL Multiphysics®
Composite wheel rims are stronger and lighter than their conventional steel and aluminum counterparts. Plus, they offer better acceleration, braking, and cornering on the road.
How to Perform a Sensitivity Analysis in COMSOL Multiphysics®
How do the parameters of your design affect its performance? Understanding this relationship is a valuable part of the design process. By performing a sensitivity analysis, you can do just that.
How to Use the Load Plots in Structural Analyses
You can use the load plots available in the COMSOL® software to get the best possible visualization of the loads acting on your structural mechanics models in various situations.
Evaluating Stress and Thermal Expansion in a Portal Crane
As extreme heat waves increase in frequency, it is important to consider thermal expansion when designing bridges. With COMSOL Multiphysics®, you can.
Optimizing Lubricated Systems with Numerical Simulation
Experts at SIMTEC designed a lubricated mechanical contact using numerical modeling and built an application for optimizing the use of lubrication in rolling and sliding bearings.
Predicting the Unpredictable: Simulating Earthquake Mechanics
In case of an earthquake, people regularly practice hiding under their desks. Another way to prepare? Using response spectrum analysis to determine the structural stability of a building subject to this type of seismic event.
