[3]University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA

A COMSOL Multiphysics® model of our apparatus has been created in order to simulate the pressurizations of our nanoparticles by Deuterium. Using reference measurements during a cooling process, we calibrated the model so that its thermal aspects reflect the ones of our experimental set up. To reproduce the pressurizations, the following variables are parameters : the location of the heat ...

Numerical Modeling of a Microtubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

[1]West Pomeranian University of Technology, Faculty of Chemical Technology and Engineering, Szczecin, Poland

Micro-tubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (mSOFC) are attracting more and more interest as new generation of energy conversion devices. Although commercial applications still suffer from high costs, there is a need for further improvement of the cell performance, durability and start-up. To resolve those challenges, knowledge of the distributions of species concentration, temperature and current ...

Uterine contractions during pregnancy are currently poorly understood – experts disagree on the mechanisms by which contractions propagate through the organ and the structural layout of the uterine muscle fibers. We have developed a multi-scale model of the uterus, at the cellular, tissue, and organ levels. By comparing simulated abdomen-level magnetic field readings from our model to clinical ...

Comparison of Different Passive Oil-Water Mixing Schemes in a Flow Loop - new

A. Chaudhuri[1]
[1]Materials Synthesis & Integrated Devices, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, USA

Oil and water are immiscible fluids and they tend to separate very easily when introduced into a flow stream from two different sources in a flow loop. This model studies the development of mixture volume fraction in an oil-water-flow loop with 3 different passive mixing schemes: (i) blind-T, (ii) check valve, and (iii) static mixer. Each device produces different levels of mixture homogeneity ...

Two Step Study of Flow in an Industrial Pulp Screen, Solved with the COMSOL Multiphysics® Mixer Module - new

R. Wetind[1]
[1]Wetind Technology AB, Alnö, Sweden

An industrial pulp screen is investigated. The dilute pulp is pumped through a screen barrier. In order to avoid the fiber network to plug, it is necessary to 1) fluidize the shear thinning pulp 2) expose the barrier with plug releasing pressure pulses. This work involves a 2-step study. Step 1: The full screen flow is simulated using Mixer Module Frozen Rotor k-. Essential pressure field ...

Modelling of the Dynamical Fluorescent Micro-Thermal Imaging Experiment on the Heat Diffusion in the La5Ca9Cu24O41 Spin Ladder Compound - new

[1]Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands
[2]Department of Physics, University of Cologne, Köln, Germany

The dynamical fluorescent micro-thermal imaging (FMI) experiment has been used to investigate the phonon-magnon interaction in the 1D Heisenberg antiferromagnet La5Ca9Cu24O41. This material shows highly anisotropic heat conductivity due to the efficient magnetic heat transport along the spin ladders in the compound carried by magnetic excitations (magnons). To extract information on the phonon ...

Mathematical Model of Vacuum Foam Drying - new

[2]Department of Meat Science and Food Physics, Institute of Food Science and Biotechnology, Hohenheim University, Stuttgart, Germany

The mathematical model is closely related to the development of a novel drying method for high viscous and sticky materials. The foamed state facilitates diffusive moisture transport and therefore accelerating the drying process. Moreover the dried porous material can be easily converted into the powder. The mathematical modelling aimed at evaluating the complex drying process as basic ...

Modeling and Simulation of High Sensitivity CMOS Pressure Sensor Using Free Boundary Circular Diaphragm Embedded on Ring Channel Shaped MOSFET

S. Joy[1], T. Tom[1]
[1]Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi, Kerala, India

Sensors have diverse applications ranging from medical field to space explorations. They convert physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, humidity etc: - into an electrical output. The discovery of piezoresistivity property of silicon and germanium led to miniaturization of pressure sensors. Improvement in the sensitivity is the major factor to be considered while designing pressure ...
