Zeitliche Entwicklung der Elektronendichteverteilung in einer linear ausgedehnten Plasmaquelle

Graf, M., Räuchle, E., Hunyar, C., Unger, R., Kaiser, M., Emmerich, R., Urban, H., Alberts, L., Elsner, P.
Fraunhofer-Institut für Chemische Technologie, Pfinztal, Germany

In this article the time variable development of electron density in low pressure microwave discharges is examined. Exemplarily the linear extended plasmaline® is simulated in an axially symmetric two-dimensional application mode. The multiphysics environment of FEMLAB allows a self consistent solution of Maxwell’s equations together with a simple model for generation and loss of electron ...

Flow behaviour of phosphorus-deoxidised copper in plane-strain hot extrusion

2 Department of Production Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden

Flow behaviour of phosphorus-deoxidised copper in plane-strain hot extrusion with an insertion in the die has been studied through a finite-element model consisting of fluid dynamics and heat transfer approaches. The billet material is considered as rigid-visco-plastic and rate-sensitive. A dynamic viscosity, which is strain-rate and temperature dependent, has been integrated into the model. ...

Boundary Conditions Identification for Thermostatic Cauchy Problem by Minimizing an Energy-like Function

T.N. Baranger
LDMS, UMR CNRS-INSA 5006, ISTIL - Université Claude Bernard, Lyon

An energy-like error function is introduced in the context of the ill-posed problem of boundary data recovering, which is commopnly known as a Cauchy problem. Here the problem is converted into an optimization problem. Numerical simulations highlight the efficiency and robustness of the proposed method.

Simulation and Analysis of Foods Fluid Dynamic Behaviour during Filling Processes

E. Bottani, R. Rizzo, and G. Vignali
Università degli Studi di Parma

This research presents a model describing the behavior of fluids during a septic filling processes. Numerical simulations were performed to investigate the laminar flow and rheological behavior of shear thinning and Newtonian fluids in 3-dimensional steady state and time-dependent configurations. The mass and momentum balance equations were solved with the finite element method using ...

Numerical Study of Microfluidic Fuel Cell Performance

[1]School of Engineering, UBC Okanagan, Kelowna, BC Canada, Canada

Using COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5, a numerical model has been developed to determine the effect of the channel geometry and electrode configuration on cell performance based on polarization curves. The Butler-Volmer equation was implemented to determine the reaction rates at the electrodes. The Conductive Media DC module is used to model the electric fields within the fuel cell.

Finite Element Analysis of an Enzymatic Biofuel Cell: The Orientations of a chip inside a blood artery

C. Wang[1], Y. Parikh[1], Y. Song[1], and J. Yang[1]
[1]Mechanical & Materials Science Engineering, Florida International University, Miami, Florida, USA

Output performance of an implantable enzymatic biofuel cell (EBFC) with three- dimensional highly dense micro-electrode arrays has been simulated with a finite element analysis approach. The purpose of this research is to optimize the orientation of this EBFC chip inside a blood artery such that the mass transport of glucose around all the micro-electrodes can be improved and hence output ...

Linear Convection and Conduction in Cylinders of Water Exposed to Periodic Thermal Stimuli

R.E. Tosh[1], and H.H. Chen-Mayer[1]
[1]National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA

Primary reference standards for determining absorbed dose to water in radiotherapy beams used at cancer clinics and hospitals ultimately must make reference to the temperature change in water produced by ionizing radiation. The most direct experimental technique for this purpose is water calorimetry. Since the dose distributions delivered by such beams are nonuniform, temperature signals ...

Simulation of Electromagnetic Stirrers and Brakes Applied in the Metallurgical Field

C. Mapelli
Politecnico di Milano

The control of the flux within continuous casting systems used in the metallurgical field can be obtained through the application of electromagnetic. The model here has been solved through a linear time-harmonic solver. The results of the electromagnetic model have then been applied to the fluid-mechanics model through volume Lorentz forces.

[2] Universität Ulm, Ulm

Two designs for thin layer flow cells were set up at University of Ulm, Germany, in order to identify parameters describing the kinetics of methanol-oxydation – reactions, to be utilized in fuel cells. Computer models for two designs were constructed using COMSOL Multiphysics. Results from the numerical simulations were used to evaluate the different flow cell designs. The aim to ...

Thermo-fluid-dynamic evaluation of a microsystem to analyse radioactive solutions

G. Janssens-Maenhout
Joint Research Centre Ispra
Ispra, Italy

It has become common place to use micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of solutions. However, such microchips have not yet been applied to the analysis of radioactive solutions, for the purpose of nuclear safeguards, in the nuclear reprocessing industry. Implementing MEMS in this area results in a reduced volume of the sample to be analysed. This has many ...
