“Problems in nature are multiphysics in character”
Problems in nature are multiphysical in character, whereas most engineered solutions today are not. In order to engineer solutions to these multiphysics problems, coupled numerical tools are required. COMSOL™ multiphysics provides such a numerical tool to solve these difficult coupled problems. From the chemical reactions which drive cellular structures and our limbs, to fluid-structures within the heart, Continuum Blue uses multiphysics numerical methods to model these interactions. From first principles such as chemical reactions, to transport phenomena & solid mechanics. These physics’ can be easily coupled and their combined effects understood using COMSOL™. Continuum Blue is an expert in multiphysics modelling, where the coupling of various physical fields can be difficult. We help clients implement & simplify the coupled multiphysics behaviour.
Advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
At Continuum Blue we focus on advanced FEA, such as nonlinear analysis due to either multiphysical interactions, geometric, material or contact analysis.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Computational fluid dynamic (CFD), is the study of fluids using mathematical models to describe the fluids flow around bodies, and/or the flow of solutions or particles within a fluid, due to pressure and velocity gradients and drag forces. Most CFD problems involve the Navier–Stokes equations, which defines single-phase fluid flow, and simplification of these equations.
Nasal Drug Delivery: In this CFD study we look at drug delivery and deposition of a distribution of drug carrier particle sizes in a human nasal cavity. The aim of the study was to find where particular sized particles (drug carriers) would be deposited in the human nasal cavity when using a particular nasal applicator nozzle design and pressure. The outcome of the study was to find the optimal nozzle geometric properties and pressures for specific therapeutic agents to target various regions of the nasal cavity to promote drug yield across the blood-brain barrier.
