Welcome to our monthly roundup of the best links on the internet about engineering, physics, and computer modeling! This month is full of interesting videos, articles, and resources to keep you up to date with the world of computer assisted engineering and discrete element method.


Simulating the Real World


Practical Applications

  • Sea ice is massive at both poles of the planet. Millions of tons of ice are constantly on the move, and sea ice dynamics has become an important subject for simulation for both commercial and scientific reasons.
  • You’ve probably never thought about the soil mechanics on the moon and Mars. But it’s critically important to rovers and exploration. NASA has publicly released its research on the matter.


Physics Lesson

  • Physics lesson! Take a deep dive into friction, its various types, and our understanding of it since the time of the Greeks.


News from Coupi

  • Learn about our work on Siku, a model to simulate sea ice fractures in the Arctic for researchers at the Coastal Marine Institute and Bureau and Ocean Energy Management.
