Design and Simulation of SAW Device using MEMS Technology

P.R. Basha, B. Mishra, and A. Zachariah
School of Electronics Engineering, VIT University, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India

The realization of miniature SAW device is compatible on CMOS device for mobile and wireless communication system has become very important in recent years. Acoustic wave propagation along the surface of a piezoelectric material provides a means of implementing a variety of signal processing devices at frequency ranging from several MHz to a few GHz. In this work, a Miniature SAW device is ...

Two Dimensional Model of a Catalytic Plate Reactor for Methane Steam Reforming Using Different Kinetic Mechanisms

Coupling of an endothermic reaction and an exothermic reaction using catalytic plate reactor (CPR) is a well known concept for industrial processes such as steam reforming, dehydrogenation and hydrocarbon cracking. In the CPR, the exothermic reaction (e.g., combustion of methane) can provide the necessary heat to drive the endothermic reaction (e.g., steam reforming of methane). The present work ...

Modeling of Swelling in Whey Protein Based Gel Systems

M.H. Oztop, and K.L. McCarthy
University of California, Davis, CA, USA

In this study, Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) gels of different thickness were soaked in solutions of pH 7.0 and mass uptake was recorded. A finite element model based on diffusion and deformed mesh application modes in COMSOL Multiphysics was developed. Deformed mesh application mode provided the opportunity to incorporate the moving boundaries. The moving boundaries were solved by introducing ...

[3]Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA

Bacteria within a biofilm typically exhibit higher resistance to antibiotic therapy due to mass transport resistance of the biofilm matrix and/or reduced metabolic activity of cells living within the biofilm interior. The objective of this research was to develop a high-throughput experimental and modeling approach to investigate the effects of colony spacing and concentration on the ...

Design of Novel Lithographic Strategies Through Application of Electromagnetic and Multiphysics Simulations

J.P. Singer, J. Lee, S. Ni, M.A. Gibson, S.E. Kooi, and E.L. Thomas
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA

Large area patterning techniques such as interference lithography or self-assembly provide 3D nanoscale structures, but lack arbitrary control over what regions are patterned. 3D direct write (DW) lithographic techniques such as multiphoton lithography (MPL) possess the capability to fabricate nearly arbitrary patterns; however, due to the serial nature of DW, fabrication is slow relative to ...

Fluid Dynamics of Blood Flow During Reperfusion and Post-conditioning

T. Merrill, and A. La Barck
Rowan University, Glassboro, NJ, USA

Reperfusion injury is caused by the rapid restoration of blood flow to oxygen-starved tissue. The model will simulate pulsatile blood flow. A separate 2-dimensional axisymmetric straight tube model will be constructed to simulate the pulsating angioplasty balloon within the flow path. Outlet flow profiles from the straight tube model will then be used as the inlet condition for the ...

Design Optimization of Slotted Waveguide Antenna Stiffened Structures (SWASS)

T. Ha, and R.A. Canfield
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA, US

Design optimization of slotted waveguide antenna stiffened structures (SWASS) is described. SWASS is a multidisciplinary blending of RF slotted waveguide technology and stiffened composite structures technology. Structural analysis and radio frequency (RF) analysis are integrated. A hat-type stiffened panel is modeled to meet the structure and RF requirements. We are motivated by the potential of ...

Using COMSOL with the Adjoint Method for Inverse Problems

A. Emery
University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA

The standard way of estimating parameters in solving inverse problems is based upon least squares fitting which minimizes the sum of the residuals. Another way of minimizing is based upon the adjoint approach in which the sum of the residuals is augmented by the constraint that the solution satisfies the appropriate algebraic or differential equations. This method involves solving the adjoint ...

Two Dimension Model of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Using COMSOL

K. Song, and H. Knickle
University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI, USA

As a promising candidate for future electricity providing, solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) exhibit high efficiency, quiet operation and near zero emissions. In this work, two 2-dimension models of SOFC are constructed in COMSOL. Model 1 includes porous anode and cathode simulations with a thin electrolyte. The fuel cell is operated isothermally under fixed output voltages of 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8. The ...

Heat Transfer in Beer Bottles As Explained By COMSOL Models

W.M. Clark, R.C. Shevlin, and T.S. Soffen
Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, USA

In this poster we present experiments and calculations that investigate these claims and demonstrate how COMSOL Multiphysics can be used in an undergraduate student project to illustrate engineering fundamentals. We measured the temperature of water in glass, aluminum, and plastic bottles as a function of time upon cooling in a refrigerator, cooling in ice water, heating in air, and heating ...
