How to Refine and Adapt Imported Meshes

August 15, 2019

2 features for getting the most out of your imported meshes: 1. The Refine operation quickly reduces element size. 2. The Adapt operation modifies the element size via an expression.

How to Produce 3D Far-Field Plots from 2D Axisymmetric RF Models

August 8, 2019

When modeling certain resonant structures, you can get the best of both worlds: 2D axisymmetry offers efficient computations while 3D far-field plots are available for postprocessing results.

Engineering the Flow of Light Using Photonic Crystals

July 25, 2019

Did you know that the discovery of photonic crystals in 1980 came about because of an attempt to reduce the losses in semiconductor lasers in a specific frequency range?

Recursion and Recursively Defined Geometry Objects

July 17, 2019

Broadband antennas and metamaterials are 2 fields of engineering in which recursively defined geometry objects are a useful modeling capability. Writing methods makes this task easier.

How to Automatically Remove Small Details in Your Model Geometry

July 12, 2019

Have you ever wished for an automatic way to remove small details in your model geometry that are causing an unnecessarily fine mesh or a poor mesh quality? Enter the Remove Details operation.

Best Practices for Meshing Domains with Different Size Settings

July 9, 2019

Tip 1: Choose the order of your meshing sequence operations. Tip 2: Use a single operation to mesh multiple domains. Keep reading to learn how to ensure the high-quality meshing of model domains.

How to Automate Meshing in Frequency Bands for Acoustic Simulations

June 26, 2019

There is a large frequency range involved in acoustics phenomena, which means that modeling acoustics problems requires meshing a large wavelength range. COMSOL® offers an efficient way to do so.

Analyzing Vibrations in Rotating Machinery Due to Bearing Misalignment

June 25, 2019

You can use structural analysis to compare the angular velocity, axial displacement, and bearing reaction moment on the shaft for rotating machinery with aligned and misaligned bearings.
