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
- Why is it so hard to predict the weather? You can thank the chaotic, three-dimensional gas that thinks it’s a fluid – aka the atmosphere.
- Computer models combined with new weather stations installed on and around the world’s highest glacier could clue scientists in on important global climate trends.
- Carefully designed chutes are vital to efficiently transfer mining material. Some companies have started using DEM simulation and other computer models to design the best.
- Computer modeling is helping scientists develop a vaccination distribution plan that could lower the number of infected people three to seven times.
- You probably know about gases, liquids, solids, and plasma. Now, what about the other states of matter?
