Laser assisted brazing with Al-Si fillers in V-shaped groove configuration is a perspective method for joining of aluminum alloys to titanium. The present work introduces multiscale model that allows estimating diffusion process at titanium/melted zone interface in function of thermal history of welded plates. 3D model of heat transfer with moving laser source and fixed geometry is linked to 2D ...

Puffing of biomaterials involves mass, momentum and energy transport along with large volumetric expansion of the material. Development of physics-based models that can describe heat and moisture transport, rapid evaporation and large deformations can help understand the puffing process. In this context, a fundamentals based study of salt-assisted puffing of rice is described. A multiphase model ...

Many industrial, especially heterogeneously catalysed, processes are characterised by a strong interaction between the reaction kinetics and transport phenomena. Because experiments in laboratory scale can be very time- and cost-intensive, Temkin andKul’kova developed a new reactor design for the direct testing of industrial catalysts. Based on this concept of linearly alternating catalyst and ...

Transformations in polymers, such as polymerisation, melting/crystallization, and phase separation/remixing, are associated with changes in both rheological and thermal properties. To permit simultaneous calorimetric and rheometric measurements, the RheoDSC was developed. The RheoDSC combines two commercial instruments, a TA Instruments Q2000 DSC and a TA Instruments AR-G2 dynamic rheometer. A ...

An analysis to quantify the flow inside the narrow channels of an ISS (International Space Station) CDRA (Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly) adsorbent bed is presented. The CDRA contains two pelletized adsorbent beds to remove CO2 respired by the crew. Heaters and associated fins inside the adsorbent beds form many small parallel channels which are rectangular in cross section. The channels are ...

The subject of the study is a bespoke rainscreen system designed for the Grand Theatre of Rabat, Morocco (Figure 1). The project presents a complex façade geometry and consists of a 1800-seat theater, an open-air amphitheater with a capacity of 7000 people, a rehearsal space and a restaurant. The rainscreen system consists of fiberglass individually cast reinforced concrete (GRC) panels ...

This study deals with a numerical investigation of the melting process of a PCM in a rectangular enclosure differentially heated. COMSOL Multiphysics is used in order to numerically solve Navier-Stokes and energy equations in the considered system. Adopting an enthalpy formulation, one single equation is used to solve transient conduction and convection heat transfer in both the solid and liquid ...

The optimized design of a waveguide applicator has been proposed for superficial microwave hyperthermia using COMSOL Multiphysics 3.5a. In microwave hyperthermia cancer treatment body tissue is exposed to high temperatures using external and internal heating devices. Non-Invasive or external hyperthermia is used to treat tumors that are in or just below the skin (superficial). Non-invasive ...

Internal combustion engine components have been a main research interest over many decades. The structural mechanics and dynamics of the piston rings has been a large focus of work in order to gain a greater understanding of the how the piston ring dynamics affect the piston ring. Piston rings are often coated to reduce the level of wear on the ring as they will suffer substantial levels of ...
