Biodegradable polymers are becoming increasingly attractive for consumer product applications such as electronic devices and disposable packaging. Modeling these materials during impact is challenging due to the complexity of the physical event and the scarcity of appropriate material models for biodegradable polymers.
Shear thickening and jamming in dense particulate suspensions can lead to undesirable processing inefficiencies and failure modes across a variety of product applications, including inkjet printer nozzles, medical autoinjectors, and porous filtration systems. In this case study, Veryst simulated the flow of a dense suspension through a syringe needle to evaluate the conditions that lead to shear jamming.
The consultants at Veryst provide failure and root cause analyses using core engineering disciplines to evaluate different failure scenarios. Engineering specialties we apply to failure analyses include: mechanical engineering, materials science (metallurgy, ceramics, polymer science, composites
Veryst offers a comprehensive approach to solving problems in microfluidic device development. We employ an array of modeling tools, such as scaling arguments, analytical formulas, computational simulations, and laboratory testing to inform the design and integration of common components.
Accurate simulation of many products now requires a multiphysics approach. Veryst Engineering specializes in multiphysics problems involving solids, fluids, heat transfer, mass transfer, acoustics, and electromagnetics. Our modeling and analysis expertise includes fluid-structure interaction, thermal-structure interaction, structural-acoustic vibrations, conjugate heat transfer, Joule heating, and microwave heating.
NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Tech Briefs, a design engineering publication focused on reporting significant new technologies, has published an article by Veryst engineers Allyson Hartzell and Andrew Spann titled “Solving the Interconnect Challenge: How to Bring Flexibility to Wearable Design.”
