This study examines the effect of air flow between the building integrated PV-panel and the wall. To formulate the heat exchange process for the air flowing between the PV panel and the wall, time-dependent, heat transfer partial differential equations (PDEs) are solved with COMSOL Multiphysics®. It is shown that in summer, the maximum temperature of a PV panel is observed on an east facing ...

The particle tracking model provided a deeper understanding to the experimental results. The model showed good agreement with experimental data for rotation, transport and attachment. In the attachment model, protrusions create low velocity, low shear regions increasing attachment while holes pull cells toward the surface and increase residence time on the surface increasing attachment rate.

Wine quality is strongly dependent on the operation parameters of the production process. In batch or fed batch reactors, the rotating velocity should be carefully controlled to avoid cellular stress and ensure adequate mixing of the mixture. Moreover, precise control of substrates concentration evolution and cellular growth, as well as efficient heat transfer, allows the production of high ...

Introduction Droplet-based microfluidics is a large source of research for scientists of new biotechnologies, aerosols or other 2D-Microfluidics devices. Here, we will focus on an industrial application of a 3D microfluidic device : the PH2DG, Pneumo-HydroDynamic Droplet Generator. The aim of the process is to produce mono-disperse, regular pattern of droplets, with a minimum size. To use it in ...

Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) is used for the manufacture of Multi-Quantum Well Light Emitting Diodes (MQW LEDs). The process uses a carrier gas flow containing a dilute mixture of metal organic precursors, Tri-Methyl Gallium (TMG) and Tri-Methyl Indium (TMI), to epitaxially deposit GaN and InGaN on a heated wafer of diameter ranging from 2" to 8". The gas mixture flows into a ...

A new electrochemical polishing facility will be built at CERN to process copper radiofrequency structures and this in the framework of the Future Circular Collider study. This polishing installation will be designed and assembled so that the necessary working conditions to achieve the ultimate limits of this technique are ensured. The main working variables like potential, current density, bath ...
On The Purification Of Waste Waters Using Multi-Bore Filters: Simulation Of A Long-Term Filtration Stage
Dipartimento di Matematica U. Dini, Universita' di Firenze, Italy
We present the progress of the simulation activity we are carrying out within the PURIFAST LIFE+ project. We first present the model we formulated to describe the macroscopic effects of the filtration process taking place in a multi-bore filter, focusing on the fouling phenomenon. In membrane-based filters the fouling phenomenon is the major reason of a decreasing filtration efficiency. ...

Metal foams are interesting materials with many potential applications in engineering. Foamed metals or alloys include gas voids in the material structure with the real possibility to modify ad hoc their physical properties. Following our previous efforts aimed to simulate and study the foaming process of a metal, we propose in this work a model which considers heat and mass transfer ...

The Atmosphere Revitalization Recovery and Environmental Monitoring (ARREM) project was initiated in September of 2011 as part of the Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) program. Under the ARREM project, testing of sub-scale and full-scale systems has been combined with multiphysics computer simulations for evaluation and optimization of subsystem approaches. In particular, this paper describes ...

This assignment deals with the modeling of a pressure controlled current-limiting valve. For this purpose the CAE-Software COMSOL Multiphysics® is used. Current-limiting valves are used as a measure of safety in many hydraulic applications. They are deployed in cases of a high decrease in pressure due to a burst pipe or leaks. The chief aim of this project is to find a beneficial modeling ...
