Continuum Blue has been featured in a number of articles from COMSOL News, to Style Magazine. These features have described some of the things we’re doing to push the boundaries in the perception of scientist in the public eye, to assessing subsea cables for the oil & gas industry.
Scientist = Sexy2 (Style Magazine)
The mention of scientists normally conjures up images of geeky fashion disasters & social inept misfits. Style magazine did an article to debunk this myth & showed that we scientists can be funky, interesting & sexy! Obviously, they chose our founder, Dr Mark Yeoman & Continuum Blue to highlight this in their feature!
Analysis of Subsea Umbilicals & Cables (COMSOL News 2012)
A full 3D simulation of subsea umbilicals & cables under bending & axial loads is a difficult problem to simulate, this is made worse, when considering multiple layers of counter rotating armour assemblies which are used to reinforce these subsea structures. See how Continuum Blue helped JDR Cables (www.jdrcables.com), to develop a bespoke 3D cable generation code to help them analyse these structures under bend & axial load conditions for fatigue & cycles to failure analysis. See how we achieved this by reading the article below (click on image to be taken to article).

Mixed Polymers Forms Unique One-Piece Medical Implant (COMSOL News 2010)
When it comes to medical implants, implantable polymers are making large leaps & bounds to change this landscape, where they are encroaching on some of the more traditional implantable materials. When it comes to quality control, reducing the number of manual manufacturing steps can significantly reduce the possibility of contamination! Here, we help a company produce a novel graduated polymer implant using two distinctly different polymers in a single manufacture step. See how we achieved this by reading the article below (click on image to be taken to article).
