Using COMSOL for Smart Determination of Material Properties Using Inverse Modeling Techniques

J. van Schijndel, S. Uittenbosch, and T. Thomassen
Eindhoven University of Technology
Eindhoven, Netherlands

The paper presents the development of a method that determines building material and surface properties using relative simple and low-budget experiments, The method comprehends an optimal design of an experimental set up for smart determination of heat and moisture properties using both normal and inverse modeling techniques. It is concluded that the suggested methodology of the inverse ...

The Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) technology has been proven to tolerate rate larger than 50 MHz/cm² without noticeable aging and to provide the sub-millimeter resolution on working chambers up to 45x45 cm² [1]. A new GEM tracker is under development for the upgrade of the SBS spectrometer in Hall A at Jefferson Lab. The chambers of the tracker have been designed in a modular way: each chamber ...

The Giant Magneto Resistance (GMR) effect is a quantum mechanical effect which can be observed in systems consisting of thin alternating ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic layers. Simulation using COMSOL allows the evaluation of the magneto-resistance ratio and the electrical resistances of realistic CPP-GMR devices and opens the possibility to study new device materials and designs.

Accelerating R&D with COMSOL: A Personal Account

Erik Birgersson[1]

[1]Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore, Singapore

This presentation gives an account of how COMSOL Multiphysics® software has helped to accelerate research and development. It has been used to simulate energy systems such as fuel cells, biomedical systems such as hydrogels and human skin, and monolithic catalytic converters. Each of these systems requires a mathematical model that can accurately represent the relevant physics, and which can be ...

Benchmark of COMSOL vs. ROXIE Codes for the Calculation of a Particle Accelerator Quadrupole

I. Rodriguez, and J. L. Munoz
ESS Bilbao
Bilbao, Spain

The field quality requirements of most particle accelerator magnets are very tight and, therefore, very precise simulations are needed to accurately calculate these devices. CERN\'s ROXIE code is widely used as a reference software to calculate normal conducting and superconducting magnets for particle accelerator applications. ROXIE uses the full vector potential coupled to the BEM-FEM method ...

Multiphysics Simulations in Complex 3D Geometry of the High Flux Isotope Reactor Fuel Elements using COMSOL

J. Freels, and P. Jain
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Oak Ridge, TN

A current research and development project is ongoing to convert the operating High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) from highly-enriched uranium (HEU U3-O8) fuel to low-enriched uranium (LEU U-Mo) fuel. Because LEU HFIR-specific testing and experiments will be limited, we are relying on COMSOL to provide the needed multiphysics simulation capability to validate ...

Using Advanced FEMLAB Features for SHA-FEM Coupling

Kildishev, A., Chettiar, U.
School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University

Spatial Optical Analysis (SHA) of electromagnetic fields is a useful tool in analytical and numerical analysis of complex electromagnetic sources. A mathematical background for setting the Dirichlet boundary condition in the Finite Element Method (FEM) is shown.

FEMLAB modules for bioengineering education

Butler, P.J.1, Ferko, M.C.2
1 Department of Bioengineering, Penn State University
2 Stryker Orthopedics Corporation

As biologists uncover the structural and functional complexity of living organisms, it is increasingly clear that mathematical models are needed to synthesize experimental data and predict biological responses to external stimuli. Bioengineers are well-suited to develop such models and to add mechanics, fluid flow and other physical cues to the understanding of biological structure and ...

Virtual Prototyping

B. Engquist
University of Texas, Austin

During the past 50 years, Computational Science has developed as its own branch of mathematics. This development was mainly initiated by the progress of modern computers. Todays modeling of physical phenomena must not only account for the computational time but also the time engineers spend on setting up the computation. This in turn has introduced new fields, such as human interaction, to ...
