This computational implementation presents a new strategy of coupling two 3D models to satisfy the requirements of the comprehensive model of a unitary Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cell, including its internal geometries and constitutive materials, as well as distinct physical and chemical processes. Those different simultaneous processes required computational effort and the solution was the ...

As the importance of nanoparticles is growing more and more, controlling and understanding the properties of nanoparticles became a focus of research. In this field Meyer at al.  are researching the GMR effect in granular gels to develop magnetoresistive sensors. The GMR in granular gels is simulated to investigate the physical processes in those systems. As soon as the models coincide with ...

The approach of this project is Modeling a Coriolis Mass Flow-meter (CMF) bases on a Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) device. The "Coriolis mass flow-meter sensor" is modeled using COMSOL Multiphisics® simulation, the Acoustic-Shell Interaction physics interface and coupled by FSI physics interface to drive and simulate the sensor. The modeling and simulation are provided into two different ...

The motion of DNA in crowded environments is a common theme in physics and biology. Examples include gel electrophoresis and the self-interaction of DNA within cells and viral capsids. Here we study the interaction of multiple DNA molecules within a nanopore by tethering the DNA to a bead held in a laser optical trap to produce a "molecular tug-of-war". We measure this tether force as a function ...

Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (RQN) is a radio frequency (RF) spectroscopic technique that is used to detect quadrupole nuclei such as Nitrogen-14. NQR was found to be a good candidate for detecting narcotics, explosives and medicines . However, due to its low sensitivity the use of NQR is still limited. One way to increase the sensitivity is to improve the RF coil by means of a better RF ...

The concept of cranial Primary Respiratory Mechanism (MRP) is used by osteopathic practitioners to explain the perceptual characteristics arising from the clinical palpation approach of the human skull. The theoretical apparatus and the same MRP existence is always element of controversy among the scientific community. The results arising from this study highlight the intrinsic capability of ...

Earth heat exchangers are drawing increasing attention and popularity due to their efficiency, sustainability and universality. In addition, DBHE can offer higher temperatures and more return on investment than conventional system. DBHE is also an alternative to geothermal power generation or to direct use applications in an extreme engineered (or enhanced) geothermal systems (EGS). However, the ...

The rotary kiln process is a commonly practiced method in the industry for producing sponge iron using coal. In the industry, there have been recent reports of premature failures of certain air tubes in a rotary kiln. Most of those cases have concentrated on those air tubes which run into the kiln around the middle portion of the kiln. This research work aims at identifying the probable cause of ...

The Levant has been repeatedly devastated by numerous earthquakes since prehistorical times. In order to understand the role of the dynamics of the water bodies in triggering the deformations in the Levant basin, a new theoretical thermo-mechanical model is constructed and extended by including a fluid flow component, in COMSOL Multiphysics simulation environment. The latter is modeled on a ...

This paper introduces an efficient model to describe energy dissipation in acoustic. When the propagation domain has hard wall boundary conditions only viscous and thermal losses happen and are completely described by the so-called Full Linearized Navier-Stokes model (FLNS) which is implemented in thermoacoutics interface using the COMSOL Acoustics Module. This model defined by a set of ...
