Hexagonal Grating

A plane wave is incident on a reflecting hexagonal grating. The grating cell consists of a protruding semisphere. The scattering coefficients for the different diffraction orders are calculated for a few different wavelengths.

Corner Cube Retroreflector

A corner cube retroreflector can be used to reflect rays so that their reinitialized trajectories are parallel to their initial trajectories, regardless of the angle of incidence. This tutorial model shows how to simulate the reflection of a bundle of rays at a cube corner retroreflector using the Geometrical Optics interface.

Mixing of Water in a Flat Bottom Mixer - new

This tutorial example simulates the flow in a flat bottom mixer containing, agitated by a pitched four blade impeller, where the fluid is water, and flow is assumed to be turbulent. The flow in the mixer is modeled using the k-ε turbulence model, and a time-dependent simulation corresponding to 30 revolutions of the impeller is performed in order to reach the operating conditions of the ...

Nonisothermal HI Reactor

In the case of a perfectly mixed nonisothermal system, you have to set up both the time-dependent material and energy balances. There are no spatial concentration gradients because the system is perfectly mixed, so the Reaction Engineering interface can create a model without evaluating the material-transport properties.

Thermal Bridges In Building Construction - 2D Square Column

This example studies heat transfer in a square column. Cold and hot temperature conditions are applied to the boundaries. Due to the symmetry of the problem, the geometry is simplified to half of the square. The temperature field is compared with the analytic data. This example corresponds to the case 1 described in the European standard EN ISO 10211:2007 for thermal bridges in building ...

Mixed Diffuse-Specular Radiation Benchmark

This model shows how to use the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface to simulate mixed diffuse-specular reflection between surfaces in an enclosure. This model is separated in two parts. The first part compares the heat fluxes computed by the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface with the exact solution for two identical infinitely long parallel grey plates under mixed diffuse-specular ...

Neutralization of Chlorine in a Scrubber

This example studies the kinetics of the neutralization of chlorine gas in water solution. The model assumes that the fluid volume is perfectly mixed and constant. This means that the chlorine has dissolved to an almost saturated state (1·10-2 mol/m3) and that the hydroxide has also mixed well throughout, as would be the case for a very small amount of fluid in a scrubber. The study allows ...

Thermal Microactuator Simplified - new

This example model consists of a two-hot-arm thermal actuator made of polysilicon. The actuator is activated through thermal expansion. The temperature increase required to deform the two hot arms, and thus displace the actuator, is obtained through Joule heating (resistive heating). The greater expansion of the hot arms, compared to the cold arm, causes a bending of the actuator. The material ...

Argon Boltzmann Analysis

The electron energy distribution function (EEDF) plays an important role in the overall behavior of discharges. Analytic forms of the EEDF exist such as Maxwellian or Druyvesteyn, but in some cases they fail to fit the discharge physics. This tutorial model investigates the effects of various parameters on the electron energy distribution function and rate coefficients for an argon discharge. ...

Isolator Thickness Effect

The use of Aluminum (Al) isolator is a commonly employed mitigation strategy for galvanic corrosion between magnesium alloy (Mg) and mild steel (MS). The present model demonstrates the effect of Al isolator thickness on galvanic corrosion severity using a parametric study. The electrode kinetics is implemented here using the experimental polarization data available in literature.
