Active Mixing in a Microwell by Repetitive Pipetting
A simple way of mixing small volumes (microliters or milliliters) of reagents is by repeatedly dispensing and withdrawing solution from a microwell or tube. In this case study, we used a two-phase multiphysics simulation with coupled fluid flow and mass transfer to analyze the efficacy of this active mixing process.
Battery Pack Impact Simulation
From smartphones and cameras to wireless headphones and battery packs, portable electronics proliferate. Consumers expect excellent resilience to device drops, increasing pressure on manufacturers to test thoroughly and optimize their designs. Veryst utilized its unique expertise in accurately modeling complex materials, conducting high strain rate testing, and simulating impact events to simulate the drop impact of an external battery pack.
Bioabsorbable Coronary Stent Design
Bioabsorbable materials, such as polylactic acid (PLA), are finding increasing applications in medical devices. These polymers exhibit a nonlinear anisotropic viscoplastic response when deformed, which requires a sophisticated material model for accurate finite element predictions.
Bottle Impact Failure and Material Modeling
Impact modeling of polymers is important given their use in consumer products as both structures and impact protection. Accurate FE models of impact events require high rate testing, advanced modeling, and a thorough understanding of polymer failure.
