This edition of Multiphysics Simulation, an IEEE Spectrum insert, explores some of the innovative products currently being designed by leading high-tech organizations from around the globe. Within its pages you'll find user stories from a wide array of application areas, including electronics engineering, radiation therapy research, and biomedical device design, just to name a few.
You can read, for example, about how researchers at Ford Motor Company are using simulation software to extend battery life and deliver proper charge control in Li-ion batteries used in hybrid cars. Or how engineers at Sharp Corporation are using the multiphysics approach to design and optimize everything from LCD displays to microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices, to energy storage systems, and many applications in between.
