带螺旋翅片的绕管负压换热器

王坤祥 [1],
[1] 中国科学院理化技术研究所,北京,中国

引言:超流氦低温系统的正常运行离不开负压换热器,在此选用绕管式的负压换热器。其工况为4.45K~2K之间,低压侧绝对压力3000Pa左右。软件中用到的模块有Livelink for Solidworks、Livelink for Excel、“非等温湍流 k-ε”接口。 结果:求解结果定性上正确,问题在于为了让换热器达到理想换热效果,需要更多匝数的绕管,对计算机要求很大,在该模型中只保留了10匝。

Determination of NFC-Antenna Operating Distance by COMSOL Multiphysics® Simulation of Planar Transformer Modeling

A. K. Palit [1],
[1] ZF-Lemförder Electronic GmbH, Espelkamp, Germany

Although the Near Field Communication (NFC) concept has been developed for the short distance communication between the NFC-reader antenna and transponder/Tag, yet the requirements of different Automotive OEMs vary drastically. For instance, for the keyless entry into the car based on capacitive type sensor in door handle project which consists of a rectangular NFC-reader antenna of size 80mm x ...

Meshing Challenges in Simulating the Induced Currents in Vacuum Phototriode

S. Zahid [1], P. R. Hobson [1],
[1] Brunel University London, London, United Kingdom

Vacuum phototriodes (VPT) have been used as photodetectors for many years in particle physics experiments. For example, they were used in the OPAL experiment at LEP and are currently used in the endcap Electromagnetic Calorimeter of the CMS experiment, at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Existing VPTs are fast, low-gain devices that are able to operate in strong magnetic fields at angles up to ...

The advent of wireless power transfer (WPT) technology has offered a gradually evolving research field with a multitude of triggering applications, like electric vehicles, bio-medical implants and wireless charging media for consumer electronics. However, since the initial establishment of its principal characteristics, instructive WPT efficiencies have been implemented only for rather small ...

Some Benchmark Simulations for Flash Flood Modeling

E. Holzbecher [1], A. Hadidi [1],
[1] German University of Technology in Oman, Muscat, Oman

Flash floods are sudden and mostly destructive rushes of water down narrow gullies or over sloping surfaces. They are mostly caused by heavy rainfall in the upstream watershed. They may also appear as result of catastrophic events as dam or levee breaks, or mudslides or debris flow. The occurrence of flash floods is determined by many factors, like intensity, location and distribution of the ...

Inverse Analysis of Soil Parameters Based on Deformation of a Bank Protection Structure

Y. Xing [1], R. Hu [2], Q. Liu [1],
[1] Geoscience Centre, University of Goettingen, Goettingen, Germany
[2] School of Earth Science and Engineering, Hohai University, Nanjing, China

Deformation prediction is an important part of the structure stability analysis. However, the deformation of bank protection structure which is affected by many factors, such as structural stiffness, earth pressure and hydrostatic pressure. It contains a complex mechanical process, which is a grey, fuzzy, stochastic and nonlinear engineering problem[1]. Neural network method as one of nonlinear ...

Modeling of Electro-Thermal Microbolometer for Thermal Imaging

A. Nowicki [1], A. Bennecer [1],
[1] Mechanical Engineering, University of Northampton & Gdańsk University of Technology, Gdańsk, Poland
[2] Engineering, University of Northampton, Northampton, United Kingdom

A Microbolometer is a specific type of uncooled infrared radiation detector used in thermal cameras, which converts the incoming energy into a proportionate electrical signal, which is then amplified, processed and displayed, typically on the thermal camera’s LCD viewer. The main principle of operation of a microbolometer is a thermally sensitive layer which is exposed to incident ...

COMSOL Modeling of a Submarine Geothermal Chimney

New geothermal energy sources hold promise for the future. Deep submarine geothermal energy related to hydrothermal vents is emerging in many places along the oceanic spreading centers. Shallow submarine geothermal systems are found near to continental platforms. We present the initial development of mathematical models to simulate the energy transport in submarine systems. A model for the ...

[1]Dipartimento di Ingegneria Energetica, Nucleare e del Controllo Ambientale, Università di Bologna, Bologna, Italy

The results of two thermal response tests recently performed on two vertical borehole heat exchangers (BHEs) are presented. The BHEs have the same cross section and a depth of 100 m and 120 m respectively. The evaluation of the thermal properties of the ground and grout are performed by a finite-element simulation method, developed through the software package COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4.
