The Science Behind Cooking Caramel
Whether you’re adding it to brownies, crème brûlée, or an ice cream sundae, cooking caramel is a precarious task: One wrong move and it could burn and taste bitter or recrystallize and harden.
The Growing Use of Simulation in Pharmaceutical Development
Did you know that the development cycle of a drug can take years and cost millions of dollars? Simulation is 1 way to make pharmaceutical development processes faster and more cost effective.
Exploring the 4 Basic Modes of Electrophoresis
Zone electrophoresis, moving-boundary electrophoresis, isotachophoresis, and isoelectric focusing. In most cases, the physics of new electrophoretic methods can be related back to these 4 modes.
6 Ways Engineers Are Using Simulation to Help the Environment
Energy-efficient buildings and appliances. Safe nuclear waste storage. Well-preserved freshwater lakes. These are just a few examples of how simulation is being used to help the environment.
Material Characterization by Means of Simulation
Carbon-based materials, such as synthetic specialty graphites, are found in many industries, including solar, semiconductor, car manufacturing, ceramics, and metallurgy.
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.
How to Simulate Control Systems Using the PID Controller Add-In
A PID controller can be used in a variety of industries. This blog post demonstrates how a PID controller add-in can be easily incorporated in two simulation examples.
Optimizing PID Controller Performance with COMSOL Multiphysics®
PID controllers involve three components that must work together simultaneously, and it can be challenging to get each of them just right. That’s where process control simulation comes in.
