Non-conventional hydrocarbon resources become more and more challenging object for energy producing companies throughout the world. Being already known and long-explored method, the electromagnetically (EM) assisted recovery constitutes a promising idea of technology for deposits of such a kind. COMSOL has been used recently for modeling the thermal multiphase flow through porous media in the ...

The TS (Turin Shroud) [1,2] is a fine linen fabric showing a not yet explainable  double body image of a scourged and crucified man stabbed on the side. Many hypotheses have been formulated without success  and perhaps the most reliable is one correlated to the Corona Discharge  that supposes the presence of an intense electric field, amplified by the presence of ionization induced by ...

Introduction: The sectoral plan that defines the procedure and criteria of site selection for deep geological repositories for all categories of waste (high-level and low- and intermediate-level waste) in Switzerland started in 2008 and will last for about ten years. ENSI (Swiss Nuclear Safety Inspectorate) is in charge of reviewing the proposals and safety assessments for geological repositories ...

During the past decade reverse engineering has become a common and acceptable practice utilized by many aftermarket suppliers, and even original equipment manufacturers (OEM). This presentation focuses on the applications of multiphysics software such as COMSOL and Simpleware® in reinventing the design details and manufacturing processes of an existing part in the absence of the original design ...
Computation of Capacitance, Inductance, and Potential Distribution of Integrated-Circuit Interconnects for Unshielded Four Conductors with Three Levels Systems

In this paper an attempt has been made to design and analyze integrated circuit interconnects for unshielded four conductors with three levels system using Finite Element Method (FEM). The computational and simulation work has been carried out with help of COMSOL Multiphysics software. We illustrate that FEM is as accurate and effective for modeling multilayered multiconductor transmission lines ...

Although the cardiac arrest in pregnancy is a rare event it can have significant impact in terms of age of mother, mortality of unborn children and consequently long-term effect. One of the commonly used procedures in resuscitation is defibrillation. With recent advances in understanding pathophysiologies in pregnant women it became more obvious that previous studies should be extended to ...

The radiation dose produced by an x-ray CT scanner to the patient is conventionally referenced to measurements performed by an ionization chamber in a phantom. On a fundamental level, the radiation absorbed dose, J/kg, can be determined directly by the temperature rise in the absorbing material. We model the temperature response in a high density polyethylene (HDPE) phantom. Use of COMSOL ...

This study presents a oil-gas two-phase linear flow EMH model using COMSOL Multiphysics simulator. Special attention is focused on reservoirs with characteristics for which steam injection is not attractive or feasible such as low permeability, thin-zone, and extra-heavy oil reservoirs. Comparisons showed that cumulative oil production obtained by EM heating is better than what is achieved by a ...

A 2D isothermal axisymmetric model of an anode-supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) has been developed. Also a parametric analysis to find the effect of important parameters on the cell performance has been done. This simulation has been carried out at 1 atm and 1073 K. The PEN materials are traditional ones: Ni-YSZ/YSZ/LSM-YSZ as anode, electrolyte and cathode respectively.The developed model ...

In this model a three-dimensional heat transfer analysis was performed by using COMSOL Multiphysics\' Heat Transfer Module. The model is about the heating of a set of vials (Figure 1) in a current of hot air in the laminar regime. We used time dependent studies to predict the thermal behavior of the glass and to estimate the temperatures in the various points of the bottles at various times. ...
