Whether it’s a competition entered by a group of students or the pressure of staying competitive in today’s cutthroat marketplace, multiphysics simulation speeds up the workflow for engineers everywhere.
Very few ideas or products come to fruition through the work of one single person. Collaboration is key when designing products that will change our future in unforeseeable ways. In this year’s issue of COMSOL News we find that everyone from students to professionals are working together.
Both with each other and their customers to uncover the next development in their design work. Ingraining a strong sense of teamwork in young engineers will enable them to outperform their peers once they arrive in the workforce. Beyond academia it is imperative to have both the technical skills to do your job, and as well as the communication skills to work well with others.
This issue informs readers about the teamwork involved in a variety of multiphysics projects from electromagnetic flowmeters at ABB, and radiant heating and cooling at Viega, to simulation applications that help us pave the road towards democratization. Our cover story features students at EPFL who teamed up on this multidisciplinary project to study the fluid, electrical, mechanical, and materials science phenomena required to design and build their hyperloop pod.
We are excited to present to you all of the COMSOL users who shared their expertise and insights throughout the following pages.
This resource will cover:
- RADIANT HEATING & COOLING
- SIMULATION APPLICATIONS
- DIGITAL TWINS
- HYPERLOOP POD DESIGN
- OPTICAL ANTENNA DESIGN
