Numerical Evaluation of Long-Term Performance of Borehole Heat Exchanger Fields

A. Priarone[1], S. Lazzari[1], and E. Zanchini[1]

The long-term performance of double U-tube Borehole Heat Exchangers (BHEs) is studied numerically by considering three different time-dependent heat fluxes exchanged between each BHE and the ground. Since the temperature distribution along the vertical direction has a negligible influence on long-term BHE performance, the problem is studied by means of a 2D conduction model, where the energy ...

Chemical Reactions in a Microfluidic T-Sensor: Numerical Comparison of 2D and 3D Models

In recent years lab-on-microchip technology has become a powerful tool for micro-scale analysis of biochemical processes. In the studied system the overall process consists of transport, convection, diffusion, reaction and adsorption processes. Two compounds A and B, contained in a carrier fluid (buffer), are introduced into a reaction channel via a Y-shaped double-inlet. As the streams flow ...

High Coupling Factor Piezoelectric Materials for Bending Actuators: Analytical and Finite Elements Modeling Results

[1]FEMTO-ST Institute, University of Franche-Comte, Besançon, France

New giant piezoelectric factor materials such as PMN-PT and PZN-PT were researched during the last decade and are actually becoming commercially available. As they seem very attractive for actuator designs, we studied their potential in replacing PZT ceramics. In a first comparative approach, we tested a series of classic rectangular composite bimorph structures of different combinations of ...

Computation of the Longitudinal Dispersion Coefficient in an Adsorbing Porous Medium Using Homogenization

The method to derive upscaled expressions for the dispersion coefficients for reactive flow in a porous medium uses a periodic unit cell (PUC), which consists for instance of a spherical grain in a cube, but nothing prohibits defining more complex PUC's. Homogenization leads to a coupled system of equations where the flow is described by Stokes equation and the concentration fluctuation is ...

Current Density Simulations in the Electrodeposition from Ionic Liquids: Effects of the Conductivity

I. Perissi[1], C. Borri[1], S. Caporali[1], and A. Lavacchi[1]
[1]Department of Chemistry, University of Firenze, Sesto Fiorentino, FI, Italy

The overall goal of this work is the use of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the modeling of the current density distributions for the electrodeposition of aluminum coatings from ionic liquids. The local current distribution is strongly dependant on the conductivity and on the geometry of the galvanic cell and can only be computed by the numerical solution of the partial differential equations ...

Growth and Remodelling of Intracranial Saccular Aneurysms

We present a mechanical model a growing spherical shell suitable for predicting the evolution of a Saccular Cerebral Artery Aneurysms (SCAA). It relies basically on the Kröner-Lee decomposition, used to describe the interplay between the current and the relaxed configuration of body elements. Rupture or stabilization of a SCAA are the end effect of a number of biological mechanisms, still poorly ...

Handling Tessellated Free Shape Objects with a Morphing Mesh Procedure in COMSOL Multiphysics®

P. Franciosa[1] and S. Gerbino[2]
[1]Faculty of Engineering, University of Naples Federico II, Napoli, Italy
[2]Faculty of Engineering, University of Molise, Campobasso, Italy

Tessellated models are more and more used in several engineering fields. The need to use such models to quickly perform computer simulations related to coupled physical phenomena, implies the use of dedicated software, allowing to solve, into an integrated environment, multiphysics problems. In the present work, COMSOL Multiphysics® has been used and its ability to handle tessellated models ...

Second Order Drift Forces on "Offshore" Wave Energy Converters

L. Martinelli[1], A. Lamberti[1], and P. Ruol[2]

[1]DISTART Idraulica, Università di Bologna, Bologna, Italy
[2]IMAGE, Università di Padova, Padova, Italy

Objective of this contribution is to present a procedure for evaluating second order drift forces on floating bodies, often the most important loading component for mooring design, in case of high waves propagating in relatively shallow water depths. The non linearity associated to this condition, which is typical of installations involving wave energy converters, makes this problem particularly ...
