Implantable biosensors have the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry by allowing patients and their health care providers to continuously monitor blood pH levels, pCO2, proteins, metabolites, and a wide variety of other biomolecules. These devices need to operate completely wirelessly to be used for long term monitoring. Metal coils are attractive candidates for wireless power ...

There are only two types of naturally-occurring earthquakes anywhere on the Earth: 1) those associated with the dynamics of plate tectonics and 2) those associated with the dynamics of the hydrologic cycle. The first type is characteristic of an INTERplate setting (like the San Andreas Fault). The second (“hydroseismicity”) is characteristic of an INTRAplate setting (like the Virginia ...

Fuel bundles in the CANDU (CANada Deuterium Uranium) reactor are designed for heating a pressurized coolant (heavy water) to generate electricity. The designs for the fuel bundles differ based on the number of heating elements. The flow of heavy water over the elements and inside the shell is highly turbulent. In this paper, COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to simulate the heavy water flow ...

Microcalorimetry for standardizing activities of radionuclide samples entails measurements of input power heat flow from the sample cell, with the radioactive sample compared to the reference cell under balanced conditions. The measurement is susceptible to noise due to drift and 1/f effects; thus, a better result might be expected with periodic insertion of the source into the sample chamber and ...

Circuit board failures are often ignored because they could be impreceptible. This simulation examines how internal layers around a soldered pin via subject to temperature changes during the soldering process are affected, show the forces involved and determine breaking points. A 2D thermo-mechanical model of a soldered pin is achieved in two simulation steps. First, a connecting pin already ...

One of the methods to recover oil from medium and low viscosity in complex reservoirs uses air injection leading to oil combustion. In this case the oxygen in the air burns the heavier components of the oil, generating a heat wave leading to vaporization of lighter components. The combustion mechanisms are different for light oils, where evaporation is dominant, whereas for medium non-volatile ...
Analysis of the Characteristics of the Terahertz Communication Device by using the COMSOL RF Module and its Complement
Tokyo Metropolitan University, Hachioji, Tokyo, Japan
We present simulated examples of analyzing characteristics of terahertz communication devices by using the COMSOL RF module. Especially, we propose a coupled analysis method, which has a mutually complementary relationship between the numerical analysis in the COMSOL and an additional theoretical analysis. In this work, applying this analysis for characterizing of radiation, transmittance and ...

A Dutch firm manufactures a mounting system to fasten roof workmen to the roof of a flat roof building to prevent them from falling down from the roof. The system is mounted to the flat roof afterwards, i.e. after the completion of the thermal insulated roof. Because of the mechanical strength and stiffness properties of the system, it is manufactured using (stainless) steel. The steel, ...

As it is known nano-sized emitters (such as atoms, quantum dots and point defects in diamonds) interaction with nano-environment leads to drastic changes of their decay rate and therefore lifetime (Purcell effect). To calculate the influence in general one needs to solve equations of quantum electrodynamics. However in weak interaction limit these emitters can be considered as point electric ...
