Improve the Productivity and Safety of a Perforated Well with an App

Bridget Cunningham November 14, 2016

When designing a perforated well to recover oil and gas, choosing the right number of perforations with the appropriate properties is key. Too many holes and you run the risk of equipment failure or injury; too few and you decrease productivity levels. One way to achieve this balance and improve the safety and productivity of the recovery operation is to model fluid flow near the wells. Let’s see how the Application Builder makes this process even more efficient.

In a previous blog post, we discussed the physiological basis of generating action potential in the excitable cells of living organisms. We spoke about the simple Fitzhugh-Nagumo model, which emulates the process of depolarization and repolarization in a cell’s membrane potential. Today, we analyze a more advanced model for simulating action potential, the Hodgkin-Huxley model. We also go over how to use a computational app to streamline this type of analysis.

Aside from the winding type, concentrated or distributed, the logic behind the design of electrical machines is relatively similar, as it’s based on their phasor diagrams. Using an induction motor benchmark model with a concentrated winding, we’ll show you how to create selections in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to streamline the analysis of your winding design. We’ll then demonstrate how to further advance your simulation studies by automating these processes with the Application Builder.

In 1961, R. Fitzhugh (Ref. 1) and J. Nagumo proposed a model for emulating the current signal observed in a living organism’s excitable cells. This became known as the FitzHugh-Nagumo (FN) model of mathematical neuroscience and is a simpler version of the Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) model (Ref. 2), which demonstrates the spiking currents in neurons. In today’s blog post, we’ll examine the dynamics of the FN model by building an interactive app in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

Polarizing beam splitters are optical devices used to split a single light beam into two beams of varying linear polarizations. These devices are useful for splitting high-intensity light beams like lasers as, unlike absorptive polarizers, they do not absorb or dissipate the energy of the rejected polarization state. See why creating a numerical modeling app offers a more efficient approach to analyzing and optimizing the design of these devices.

Have you ever wanted to integrate your COMSOL® software apps with external data files? These files can contain material properties, geometric dimensions, or other model inputs, and such data can derive from internal company standards or be provided by a vendor. Built-in methods in the Application Builder simplify reading from these files and displaying options read. To show this procedure, we will build an app that populates a combo box with material properties from a comma-separated values (CSV) file.

Today, guest blogger Matteo Lualdi of resolvent ApS, a COMSOL Certified Consultant, discusses the benefits of creating a simulation app to analyze a solid oxide fuel cell stack. For many businesses, numerical modeling and simulation are valuable tools at various stages of the design workflow, from product development to optimization. Apps further extend the reach of these tools, hiding complex multiphysics models beneath easy-to-use interfaces. Here’s a look at one such example: a solid oxide fuel cell stack app.

The flash method, first described by W.J. Parker et. al in 1961, is a widely used technique for measuring the thermal conductivity of materials. Our Flash Method demo app, highlighted here, performs a numerical simulation of this experiment, offering a simplified approach to modifying parameters that can impact its overall accuracy. Today, we’ll take a closer look at this easy-to-use app, as well as the theory behind it.

We rely on power transformers for everyday tasks, but these devices also create a loud buzzing or humming noise. This sound comes from vibrations in different parts of the transformer and is impossible to eliminate completely. To reduce the noise, a team of engineers at ABB Corporate Research Center simulated the acoustic, electromagnetic, and mechanical behavior in their transformer systems with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
