动脉瘤破裂是引起蛛网膜下腔出血的一种主要原因。结合 COMSOL Multiphysics® 灵活的几何建模特性以及强大的流体仿真求解能力，本文分别对两组不同大小关系的 MCA 动脉瘤理论模型进行了仿真建模分析。通过模拟分析，获得了动脉瘤球囊体长度和宽度与动脉瘤基底宽度不同比例条件下的动脉瘤速度、压力、壁面切应力（WSS）等参数的变化规律，分析了几何形态与动力学参数之间的关系。模拟结果显示：1、宽颈动脉瘤，瘤体内部旋流强度较之窄颈动脉瘤更强，中心区流速更低，更有利于形成血栓而且顶点处压力更大，更易破裂。2、增大动脉瘤宽度与基底直径的比值，顶点处 WSS 呈非线性增长，但最大值低于 WSS 安全范围的下限值，破裂危险性依然很高；3、动脉瘤宽度与基底直径不同比例下的最大的 WSS 均是主要集中在动脉瘤与载瘤血管结合处（第一剪应力集中区），对血管壁生物组织力学特性影响严重；WSS ...

We use COMSOL Multiphysics to model a gas bubble expansion in a viscous liquid initially at rest, a very common system for lightweight foamed materials from metal production and polymer processing. Modelling and simulation of foam processing during the production step involves many complexities, mainly due to the coupled momentum, mass and energy transport mechanisms, presence of more phases in ...

Most conventional wastewater treatment processes are quite energy-intensive. Global wastewater production is increasing due to growth in population, industrialization, and urbanization, creating an urgent need for energy-efficient wastewater treatment technologies. Moreover, waste streams (industrial and domestic) have drawn renewed interest as resources for water, energy, and product recovery. ...

The influences of curvature effects and swirl intensities for Non-Newtonian viscous fluid flow in a curved tube have been numerically investigated by using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The twisted tape, which are located directly in front of the curved part, are used as swirl flow generators. The tape is twisted until it reaches an angle of 90 degrees and turns right. Swirling flow, getting into the ...

Introduction Among the advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) for removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from air, photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) is considered a very promising technology [1,2]. PCO can achieve mineralization of harmful VOCs to CO2 and H2O using only UV light . A main challenge is to find appropriate kinetic models and parameters that accurately describe the rate of ...

Flows of electrically conducting liquids in external magnetic fields are present in several applications. In this kind of flow, the inhomogeneous magnetic field creates a breaking force on the conducting fluid. As a result, a stagnant zone is formed in the zone affected by the localized field so that the fluid flows around it. Wakes in magnetohydrodynamic flows present interesting challenges ...

Thin glass sheets have nowadays a lot of commercial applications. An optimal functionality of the production of such glass sheets depends on the flow control of the molten glass. The uniform distribution of the molten glass to sheets of exact thickness and width depends on the geometry of the production device. The geometry must be based on fluid dynamics to control the process. A ...

Viscous fingering (VF) instability has been extensively studied over past several decades in the context of various industrial, environmental and chemical processes. We try to model miscible VF at pushed or pulled interfaces using COMSOL Multiphysics®. We study the effect of the positive and negative log-mobility ratio on the fingering instability. Numerical simulation has been performed in 2D ...

An increased share of renewable energies is regarded as an integral part of a strategy towards a sustainable future. With regard to the heat supply sector this may be achieved using solar thermal collectors or heat pump systems with borehole heat exchangers. During the last years solar thermal and geothermal systems have generally been installed separately. Now, several proposals are discussed ...

During the hydraulic fracturing process, there can be possible re-activation of closed/sealed faults and natural fractures in the formation, which may lead to changes in the boundary conditions of the reservoir. While study models of shale gas formations have utilized the concept of a closed reservoir in order to optimize the production of gas in the well-bore, this assumption cannot be adopted ...
