In this paper, we introduce a kinetic equation coupled with the Navier-Stokes equations in COMSOL Multiphysics in order to simulate internal structural changes of a flowing complex fluid. Two physical applications are considered, the starting of blood flow in a stenosis and a simulation of a laboratory rheometric set-up. Results show good agreement with the experiments' well known ...

In this paper, we investigate the compressional wave generation in droplets and use different techniques to correlate the compressional wave generation to the shape of the droplets. Results show a good correlation between eigenmodes predicted by the theory and those experimentally observed.

Our work is to improve the surface texturing process by laser irradiation. In this study, thermal modelling of the laser-matter interaction for a single laser impact case is presented. A 1D modelling was carried out. The purpose was to determine the dimension of the liquid layer and the ablated matter volume. The model accounts for the evolution of material thermodynamic properties, the ...

In this paper we use the COMSOL Heat Transfer Module to simulate the radiative and conductive heat transfer in an experimental oven fitted with electrical infrared emitters. In particular, we study paint curing temperature and compare our results to experimental data.

This paper summarizes the numerical contribution to a project for the detection of bioparticles present in a small volume of a liquid sample. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is used to enhance their transport toward the surface of a detector. The mathematical model is composed of the electrokinetics equation for the DEP force-field calculation, and the advection-diffusion equation for the particle ...

This paper presents the modeling of high pressure discharge lamps, which are complex molecular systems, using COMSOL Multiphysics. The model accounts for the momentum, mass and energy conservation equations.
Boundary Conditions Identification for Thermostatic Cauchy Problem by Minimizing an Energy-like Function
LDMS, UMR CNRS-INSA 5006, ISTIL - Université Claude Bernard, Lyon
An energy-like error function is introduced in the context of the ill-posed problem of boundary data recovering, which is commopnly known as a Cauchy problem. Here the problem is converted into an optimization problem. Numerical simulations highlight the efficiency and robustness of the proposed method.

In this paper, different approaches for modeling heat transfer in materials are examined: Heat anisotropy in styreneacrylonitrile copolymer provided by the nanodispersion and the orientation of single wall carbon nanotubes Heat protection of aluminum plate using nonwoven material made with high performance fibers Fire protection using intumescent paint on steel plate. It is shown that ...
