The company's Fluoroplastic heat-shrinkable tubing is available in a range of expansion ratios and materials, including TexFluor FEP, PTFE, PFA and ETFE. Sizes range from 0.010 to 2.5 inches in diameter. Compounds of filled barium sulfate, bismuth trioxide and other additives are available to enable x-ray viewing of medical devise.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
