Simulating Hodgkin-Huxley-like Excitation using Comsol Multiphysics

J. Martinek[1,2], Stickler[2] , Reichel[1], and Rattay[2]
[1]Department of Biomedical Engineering and Environmental Management, University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien, Vienna, Austria
[2]Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing, Vienna University of Technology, Austria

Most simulations concerning electrical activation of human muscles are based on the modeling approach of Hodgkin and Huxley. Calculating the response of a muscle or nerve fiber membrane to an applied electrical field, needs to consider the “macroscopic”, extracellular potential ... En Savoir Plus

Modeling of snRNP Motion in the Nucleoplasm

[2]Institute of Experimental Medicine, Prague, Czech Republic
[3]Institute of Molecular Genetics, Prague, Czech Republic

Small nuclear ribonucleoprotein particles (snRNPs) are essential supramolecular complexes involved in pre-mRNA splicing, the process of post-transcriptional RNA modifications. The particles undergo complex assembly steps inside the cell nucleus in a highly dynamic compartment called the ... En Savoir Plus

Optimal PDE Control Using COMSOL Multiphysics

[3]Excellence Cluster The Future Ocean, Algorithmic Optimal Control - Oceanic CO2-Uptake/SPP 1253

An optimal control problem (OCP) is studied to a PDE of elliptic type as well as state constraints. The resulting optimality system contains two PDEs, one algebraic equation and the so called complementary slackness conditions, i.e. dual products between function spaces. At this point, ...

Coupled Electromagnetics-Multiphase Porous Media Model for Microwave Combination Heating

V. Rakesh, and A. Datta
Dept. of Biological and Environmental Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA

Although microwave heating has been studied in great detail, microwave combination heating has not. This work investigated this in a novel microwave combination system that heats the sample through a combination of microwaves and hot air. The study used a coupled electromagnetics ...

[2]Department of Biomedical Engineering, Louisiana Tech University, Ruston, LA, USA
[3]Department of Neurosurgery, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, LA, USA

Cerebral vasospasm is a complication of subarachnoid hemorrhage and other neurosurgical emergencies that reduce blood flow to the brain. Part of the approach to management of vasospasm is to improve flow through the stenotic areas by reducing by decreasing blood viscosity and enhancing ... En Savoir Plus

Simulating Microbubble Flows Using COMSOL Multiphysics

X. Chen[1], and S. Ghadiali[1,2]

[1]Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA
[2]Bio Engineering program, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA

Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a severe lung disease caused by a variety of direct and indirect insults. The main treatment for ARDS is mechanical ventilation. The ventilation of fluid filled lungs involves the propagation of microbubbles over a layer of epithelial cells. ... En Savoir Plus

Modeling of Respiratory Lung Motion as a Contact Problem of Elasticity Theory

R. Werner, J. Ehrhardt, and H. Handels
University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany

Breathing motion is a major problem in radiotherapy of lung tumors. The development of techniques to adequately account for respiratory motion requires detailed knowledge about breathing dynamics. Thus, computer aided modeling of respiratory motion gains in importance. In this paper we ... En Savoir Plus
