Thank you and Completed Simulation

I wanted to thank all of the backers for their contributions! We made it over the 25% funding level, and we are going strong to become completely funded. has agreed to extend the fu...

Making Progress On Test Geometries

Even as we are conducting the fund drive, we are still moving forward with testing of different geometries. This is particularly important to find out what set of solver will work best for a given ...

Finite element analysis is a pretty mature computational method. The theory has been understood since around the 1940s, but it really came into its own when computing became cheap and easy. Since t...

Finer Points of Simulation

As the front page explains, the production of hyperpolarized gas is a complicated system. What has been described in a lot of detail yet is the different equations that are at work in the simulatio...

When Simulations Don't Converge

Solving simulations by finite element analysis is, by nature, an approximation. We are attempting to solve a series of differential equations on a complex geometry. In our particular case, the equ...

What I'll Be Doing With Lab Notes

So... I'm sure that all of you will be interested in the progress of the hyperpolarized xenon gas simulations as time progresses. The progress on the simulations will not really take off until we'r...
