Previous studies proposed using bipolar radiofrequency ablation across two catheters placed on opposing surfaces of the ventricular wall to create transmural lesions. 2D and 3D models were built and solved with COMSOL Multiphysics software. With these models, it was possible to study the temperature distribution and lesion geometry (Figure), to compare the potential of two ways of applying ...

Heat management is crucial for the satisfactory operation of HT-PEM (High temperature polymer-electrolyte-membrane) fuel cells. Current work investigates the use of heat pipes in a HT PEMFC stack consisting of 24 cells, each with an active area of 300 cm^2. Heat pipes are known to be thermal superconductors operating on the principles of high convective heat transfer and phase transition. ...

[1]GEPEA, UMR 6144, CNRS, ONIRIS, Université de Nantes, Nantes, France

In this study, COMSOL®4.2a is used to model a microwave heating process in a TE10 rectangular waveguide. The sample consists of a small cylindrical Ca-alginate gel (D = 8 mm, H = 10 mm) inoculated with bacteria Escherichia Coli K12. The sample is placed along the microwave propagation direction into the waveguide. Maxwell’s equations and heat transfer are coupled to a microbial inactivation ...

Modeling Fluid-Induced Porous Scaffold Deformation

[1]Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA

Utilization of bioreactors to regenerate tissues outside the body has been intensely investigated in functional tissue engineering. Various studies have been performed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to understand fluid flow within bioreactors while assuming porous scaffold as a rigid structure. However, the physical and mechanical properties of most tissue engineering scaffolds suggest ...

Computation of Capacitance, Inductance, and Potential Distribution of Integrated-Circuit Interconnects for Unshielded Four Conductors with Three Levels Systems

In this paper an attempt has been made to design and analyze integrated circuit interconnects for unshielded four conductors with three levels system using Finite Element Method (FEM). The computational and simulation work has been carried out with help of COMSOL Multiphysics software. We illustrate that FEM is as accurate and effective for modeling multilayered multiconductor transmission ...

Electrokinetic transport of fluids has been investigated both experimentally and numerically due to its various applications in microfluidic devices [1-5]. These devices offer the advantage of transporting fluids or particles to specific locations without the aid of mechanical components. The device by Green et al consists of a symmetric arrangement of CPE subjected to an AC potential [6-8]. The ...

Study of Resonant Coupling using various Magnetic and Negative Refractive Index Materials

[1]School of Electronics Engineering, VIT University, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India

Non contact charging of electronic equipment from mobiles to electric vehicle has created immense interest among researchers. There are various groups working on both radiative and non-radiative energy transfer. The idea based on strongly coupled magnetic resonances is of interest because of the increased distance of energy transfer. This technology based on resonant magnetic coupling with the ...

COMSOL in electrochemical applications

Shuo-Jen Lee [1]
[1]College of Engineering, Yuan Ze University, Taoyuan, Taiwan

Microstructures such as holes, grooves, microchannels, and surface texture are essential geometric profiles for micro-components. Burs can cause interference, affect the positioning of processing, and influence the quality and surface appearance of the structure. Electrochemical machining (ECM) is a method of manufacturing that removes metal by electrochemical process instead of conventional ...

The elbow joint in dogs constitutes a complex interaction of three bones, the humerus, radius and ulna. Medial coronoid disease (MCD) is a common cause of lameness in dogs, i.e. fracturing of the most prominent portion of the ulnar joint surface driven in flexion and in pivot against both the humerus and the radius. The cause remains unknown, but prior studies suggest joint incongruency as an ...

Optimization of Mechanical Properties of Superconducting Cavities for Project X LINAC

I. Gonin[1], M. Awida[1], T. Khabiboulline[1], V. Yakovlev[1]
[1]Fermilab, Batavia, IL, USA

Project X is a proposed proton accelerator complex at Fermilab. The CW LINAC is based on five types of resonators operating at three frequencies: half-wave, spoke, and elliptical. The low beam current for the CW operation of Project X requires cavities to operate at a high loaded Q and, thus, narrow bandwidth. Therefore, it requires optimal mechanical design of the cavities to minimize the ...
