Modeling the Spread of COVID-19 with COMSOL Multiphysics®
From susceptible to exposed and infected to recovered: See how numerical modeling can help us understand the dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it spreads.
Using Transfer-Matrix Computation to Analyze Wax Guard Acoustics
The wax guard is an important part of a hearing aid, as it can improve the functionality and overall lifespan. We feature an acoustics model of a wax guard based on an actual industry example.
Developing a Silicon MEMS Chip for On-Demand DNA Synthesis
The development of genome editing tools like CRISPR-Cas9 has increased the demand for DNA synthesis technology. Researchers are creating a DNA synthesis platform to broaden horizons in the field.
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.
