Modeling of a Jecklin Disk for Stereophonic Recordings

G. McRobbie[1]
[1]University of the West of Scotland, Paisley, Renfrewshire, UK

The Jecklin Disk is a sound absorbing disk placed between two omnidirectional microphones. It is used to recreate some of the frequency-response, time and amplitude variations human listeners’ experience, but in such a way that the recordings also produce a useable stereo image through loudspeakers. This paper presents a finite element model able to simulate the effects on sound propagation ...

Poroelastic Models of Stress Diffusion and Fault Re-Activation in Underground Injection

Stress and failure in the earth have long been observed to couple to hydrogeology. Poroelastic models, introduced by soil scientists, can account for strong two-way coupling between porous crustal rock formations and their pore fluids. Current efforts to provide new energy resources (water injection in EGS, enhanced oil recovery) and to reduce pollution (CO2 sequestration, deepwell disposal) ...

Heat sinks for cryogenic applications using helium gas as the coolant are not readily available. They require to be designed specifically for the intended application. A finite element model was developed to study the feasibility and optimize the design. The FEM computing package COMSOL Multiphysics allowed to couple fluid flow and heat transfer as needed. An experiment was designed to validate ...

Load Cell Design Using COMSOL Multiphysics

A. Marchidan[1], T. Sullivan[1], J. Palladino[1]
[1]Trinity College, Hartford, CT, USA

COMSOL Multiphysics was used to design a binocular load cell. A three-dimensional linear solid model of the load cell spring element was studied to quantify the high-strain regions under loading conditions. The load cell was fabricated from 6061 aluminum, and general purpose Constantin alloy strain gages were installed at the four high-strain regions of the spring element. The four gages were ...

Modeling Microwave Waveguide Components: The Tuned Stub

R.W. Pryor[1]
[1]Pryor Knowledge Systems, Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA

The waveguide device modeled here specifically demonstrates the exploration of a small, but very important, subset of components of the family of microwave hardware devices designed to facilitate the optimized transfer of power from the generating source to the consuming load. Each of those components is called, in electronics terminology, a Tuned Stub. A stub is a length of transmission line ...

Numerical Study of Droplet Formation inside a Microfluidic Flow-Focusing Device

Y. Li[1], M. Jain[1], K. Nandakumar[1]
[1]Cain Department of Chemical Engineering, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

The micro-nanometer sized droplets have tremendous applications in bio-diagnostics, polymerization processes etc. In this work, we numerically investigate the droplet formation process of silicone oil in aqueous solution in a MFF device. A conservative level-set method is adopted to numerically model the droplet formation process numerically. The mono-dispersed and poly-dispersed droplet breaking ...

Parametric Study of Heavy Oil Recovery by Electromagnetic Heating on a Horizontal Well

M. Liu[1], G. Zhao[1]
[1]University of Regina, Regina, SK, Canada

This study presents a oil-gas two-phase linear flow EMH model using COMSOL Multiphysics simulator. Special attention is focused on reservoirs with characteristics for which steam injection is not attractive or feasible such as low permeability, thin-zone, and extra-heavy oil reservoirs. Comparisons showed that cumulative oil production obtained by EM heating is better than what is achieved by a ...

COMSOL Thermal Model for a Heated Neural Micro-Probe

M. Christian[1], S. Firebaugh[1], A. Smith[1]
[1]United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, USA

This project utilizes the heat transfer module of the COMSOL Multiphysics environment to model the effects that an ohmic heating probe will have on neural tissue. The model quantifies the thermal impact of active components embedded on a neural micro probe by solving the Penne’s bioheat equation with an external MATLAB function to determine the heat generation along the length of the probe. ...

Heat-Sink Solution through Artificial Nanodielectrics for LED Lighting Application

N. Badi[1], R. Mekala[2]

[2]Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA

Thermally conducting but electrically insulating materials are needed for heat-sink LED lighting applications. We report on a cost effective and innovative method based on creating core-shell nanoparticles in polymer with aluminum (Al) nanoparticles as the high thermal conductivity core and ultrathin aluminum oxide (Al?O?) as a capping shell. The solid oxide shell around the Al core prevents ...

Numerical Study and Simulation in COMSOL Multiphysics of the Dilution Process during Dust Sampling in Dry Machining

B. Wenga-Ntcheping[1], A. Djebara[1], R. Kamguem[1], J. Kouam[1], V. Songmene[1]
[1]University of Quebec-École de Technologie Supérieure, Montreal, Canada

Dilution’s issue during dry machining have raised the interest’s environmental researchers and engineers. In fact, the sampling of dust emitted during dry machining was a serious problem for air quality evaluation at the workplace. Furthermore, the best sampling of fine and ultrafine particles produced during material cutting, passed through the dilution of high particle concentration ...
