Welcome to our monthly roundup of the best links on the internet about engineering, physics, and computer modeling! This month’s edition is full of interesting videos, articles, and resources to keep you up to date with the world of computer-assisted engineering and discrete elements methods.
Simulating the Real World
- Simulating 2D materials, like graphene, allows us to engineer desirable new properties into their structure, according to research from Penn State and Oak Ridge National Laboratory
- This is a fun thought exercise with tons of physics considerations: What if we built a fire pole from the earth to the moon?
- Continuous production is a growing trend in the pharmaceutical world, but controlling continuous reactions comes with its own set of challenges that require complex models to solve
- Manufacturers are now using plasma treatment to solve challenges of surface bonding and adhesion in plastics fabrication at the molecular level
- Dust off your physics knowledge and remember why “inertia” comes from the Latin word, Iners, meaning slow or sluggish
News from Coupi
- Our intern, Tristan, shared what he learned and the projects he has worked on for us this semester on our blog! Check out what he’s been up to.
