Numerical Simulation for Landfill Stabilization Process considering Degradation of Organic Chemical Compounds in Waste

Hiroyuki ISHIMORI[1]
[1]Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

This presentation describes the numerical simulation model where gas/liquid two-phase porous media flow equations are coupled to multicomponent gas-phase transport and water-phase transport equations in COMSOL Multiphysics. This is done in order to predict the landfill stabilization process considering degradation of organic chemical compounds in waste.

Development of New Blade Profile for Vertical Axis Wind Turbine


[1]Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

Vertical axis wind turbine has low rotation performance compared with that of horizontal axis wind turbine. This study proposes a new blade shape for vertical axis wind turbine effective for wide range of wind speed. Results obtained from a numerical COMSOL simulation and wind tunnel experiments show the proposed new blade profile has higher performance as compared with conventional blade ...

Improvement of the Reflective Characteristic of the Microwave Ion Source Chamber with COMSOL®

[1]Hirohiko MURATA

Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan[1]

We, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. have been developing a microwave ion source since 2011. The design of the chamber is important to generate plasma efficiently. The plasma chamber was designed with the COMSOL Multiphysics RF module, and reported the results at this conference last year. In order to improve the reflective characteristic further, we redesigned the plasma chamber with the RF ...

Temperature Measurements of a Single Gold Nanoparticle under Laser Illumination

Kenji SETOURA et al.[1]

[1]The University of Tokushima, Tokushima, Tokushima, Japan

Temperature measurement of nanoparticles (NPs) under heating is an important technique in order to achieve potential applications such as photothermal cancer therapy and nanofabrication. We implemented the method to estimate the local temperature of a laser-heated gold NP on glass substrate in various surrounding media by applying the light scattering spectroscopy. We discuss experimental ...

Interaction between Light Wave and Asymmetric Metal/Insulator/Metal (MM) Structure Coupled with Subwavelength Holes at Optical Fiber Apex

Yasushi OSHIKANE[1]

[1]Osaka University, Suita, Osaka, Japan

Electromagnetic simulation of light wave interaction at around a tip of single mode optical fiber, which is formed of circular truncated cone shape, has been studied numerically by COMSOL Multiphysics and the RF Module (and Wave Optics Module). The fiber tip has specific nanostructure of asymmetric metal/insulator/metal (MIM) layers coupled with subwavelength holes. Behavior of surface plasmon ...

Design of Capacitive Vibratory Energy Harvester Calculating Change in Capacitance in Fringe Electric Field and Structural Analysis of Spring

Tomokazu TAKASAKI[1]

[1]Kansai University, Suita, Osaka, Japan

The sensing without batteries can be realized by harvesting the unused energy in environment. The capacitive harvester can generate, since the capacitance between electrodes is changed by vibration. There are two methods of producing change in capacitance: 1) change in overlapped area between electrodes, 2) change in gap between electrodes. In this study, we calculated the change in capacitance ...

Modeling of Directional Dependence in Nanowire Flow Sensor - new

A. Piyadasa[1,3], P. Gao[1,2,3]
[1]Department of Physics, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA
[2]Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA
[3]Institute of Materials Sciences, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA

3D finite element analysis model has been constructed for testing the directional dependence in a novel form of nanowire array gas flow sensor. Single nanowire (p-type single crystal Silicon) model is developed using fluid structure interaction and piezoresistivity components in the MEMS Module for COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Change in resistivity tensor due to induced stress in the nanowire ...

Generating Simulated Data for Spot Heating/IR Camera Analysis of Coal Slag Surfaces - new

M. Silva[1], T. Ring[1]
[1]Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA

For combustion simulations, the wall temperature and heat transfer is an important piece of information. Coal combustion systems typically have walls that are initially a cast ceramic, but, with time, slag is deposited on the surface and coal and soot are incorporated into the slag. It is this slag coated ceramic that determines the rate at which heat is transferred from the wall combustion ...

Analysis of Heat Transfer in a Complex Three Dimensional Structure Fabricated by Additive Manufacturing - new

C. Settle[1], K. Hoshino[1]
[1]Biomedical Engineering Department, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA

The goal of this study was to create a three dimensionally designed biomedical device with multiple functionalities and analyze its simulated heat transfer. The device would be fabricated through additive manufacturing; specifically electron beam melting (EBM). EBM has a feature size constraint of 1 mm (acceptable for this design) and is only capable of manufacturing titanium alloys [2]; a ...
