[1]PSG College of Technology Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

Cholesterol is an essential lipid for human body. The desired total plasma cholesterol for an individual is less than 5.2 mM (200 mg/dL) and it poses a potential health threat when the level is greater than 6.2 mM (240 mg/dL) [1]. Excessive plasma cholesterol causes poor cardiovascular conditions. The experimental fabrication of nano structured biosensor with advanced materials is more expensive ...

M. J. Hancock [1], N. Elabbasi [1],
[1] Veryst Engineering, LLC., Needham, MA, USA

Organ-on-a-chip microdevices combine microfluidics, MEMS, and biotechnology techniques to mimic the multicellular architectures, tissue-tissue interfaces, physicochemical microenvironments, and vascular perfusion of the body.[1] Such devices are being developed to provide better levels of tissue and organ functionality compared with conventional cell culture systems, and have great potential to ...

Marine Vibrator Bubble Source Simulation and Testing

A. K. Morozov [1],
[1] Teledyne Marine Systems, North Falmouth, MA, USA

Marine Vibrators are a coherent type of sound source, which can be quieter and less harmful for marine habitants than traditional air-gun technology. Such source gives clearer, more precise and higher resolution imaging of the bottom properties due to the coherent signal and streamer array processing. Teledyne Marine Systems is developing a coherent seismic marine sound source technology ...

Electromagnetic Modeling of Induction Tool Responses in Layered Earth Formations

N. Shakya [1], L. Sun [1],
[1] Youngstown State University, Youngstown, OH, USA

Introduction: This study presents the 3D electromagnetic model in layered media using induction logging tool. This algorithm utilizes electromagnetic wave frequency domain (EWFD) interface of Maxwell equations. Electromagnetic methods are popular tools for the measurement of resistivity (or conductivity) of the Earth formation. The purpose of our study is to show the effect of conductivity and ...

[2] Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, USA

Insulator-based dielectrophoresis (iDEP) employs arrays of electrically insulator posts in a microfluidic device to create dielectrophoretic forces that affect particle movement (Figure 1). The trapping performance of iDEP devices involves a careful balance between electrokinetics (EK) and dielectrophoresis (DEP), where EK is the superposition of electroosmosis (EO) and electrophoresis (EP). The ...

Solution of Poroelastic Equations with Different Base Variables Using Equation-based Modeling

M. H. Akanda [1], Y. Cao [1], A. J. Meir [1],
[1] Department of Mathematics & Statistics, Auburn University, Auburn, AL, USA

Poroelasticity equations describe the interaction between fluid flow and solids deformation within a porous medium. Modeling of poroelasticity is coupling between elastic deformation of porous materials and Darcy’s law. Poroelasticity has numerous real world applications such as in reservoir engineering, bio-engineering, environmental engineering etc. We have used quasi-static poroelastic ...

Predicting the Transformation of a Liquid Food Product within a Tubular Heat Exchanger

A. Plana-Fattori [1], E. Auger [1], C. Doursat [1], D. Flick [1]
[1] AgroParisTech, Paris, France

Continuous heat treatment is employed in food industry as a key step in the production of selected products, like dairy desserts. The evolution of an aqueous suspension of starch granules along an existing heat exchanger is here studied by 3D modeling of fluid flow, heat transfer and transformation. 3D modeling puts in evidence the role played by the curved tubes (bends) situated between ...

COMSOL Simulation of Flash Lamp Annealed Multilayers for Solid State Electrolyte Fabrication

C. Cherkouk [1], T. Nestler [1], M. Zschornak [1], T. Leisegang [1], D. C. Meyer [1],
[1] Institute of Experimental Physics, Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, Freiberg, Germany

All-solid-state batteries are among the next generation battery concepts that are currently being envisaged among both the international research community and industrial electronic vehicle producers. In addition to a long lifetime of more than several thousand cycles and intrinsic safety, applying solid electrolytes offers a high energy density due to larger electrochemical windows. Aluminum is ...

New Thermo-Mechanical Fluid Flow Modeling of Multiscale Deformations in the Levant Basin

[1] The Dr. Moses Strauss Department of Marine Geosciences, Leon H.Charney School of marine sciences. Haifa University, Mt. Carmel, Haifa, Israel
[2] Institute of Earth Sciences, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel

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 ...

Unraveling the CO2 Diffusion Pathway in C3 Plants

[1] Wageningen University and Research Centre, Wageningen, The Netherlands
[2] Katholieke Universiteit Leuven,Leuven, Belgium

Photosynthesis can be defined as the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy. In green plants, this applies to the conversion of CO2 into organic compounds. The energy stored in these compounds can later be used to supply energy to run physical and chemical processes in plant cells. Since photosynthesis allows crops to maintain themselves and to grow , it is of great importance for ...
