Carbon Steel pipes are used as feeder pipes in Pressurized Heavy Water Nuclear Reactors for carrying the coolant from the inlet headers to the coolant channel and again from outlet of the coolant channel to the outlet headers and are part of the Primary Heat Transport (PHT) System of Reactor. It has been observed that these feeders suffer from Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) at the bends and ...

A novel mechanism for the carbothermal reduction of Ilmenite is proposed and validated with the help of a comprehensive mathematical model. A time-dependent isothermal pellet-grain model is used to simulate the kinetic behaviour of a spherical pellet of ilmenite (FeTiO 3) in CO/CO2 atmosphere. The proposed mechanism involves diffusion of CO gas through the ores of the ...

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the microwave coagulation therapy (MCT) that can be used mainly for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. In this treatment invasive technique are used in which thin microwave coaxial antenna is inserted into the tumor and the microwave energy heats up the tumor to produce the coagulated region including the cancer cells. We have to heat the cancer ...

A fundamental understanding of the transport phenomena in microfluidic channels is critical for systematic design and precise control of such miniaturized devices towards the integration and automation of Lab-on- a-chip devices. Electroosmotic flow is widely used to transport and mix fluids in microfluidic systems. Electroosmotic transport in convergent divergent micronozzle is significant in ...

The roof of a well known shopping place in Amsterdam collapsed during a storm with heavy rain showers in 2002. One of the main problems was the malfunction of the draining system. Another problem was that driving rain water apparently washed over edges that where designed to hold the water. This short paper presents the progress of using COMSOL to simulate the height of the water near the edges ...

Ion implantation in insulating materials leads to local variations in mechanical and optical properties that can be exploited for the fabrication of micro-structures. In particular, ion irradiation of diamond causes the formation of buried amorphised layers, with correspondent mass density and refractive index variations that depend on the level of “damage” of the crystal structure. ...

In biomedical applications the detection of the magnetic field emitted by the human heart or the detection of the quantity of iron in human blood is fundamental in detecting certain diseases. An easy way to study these kinds of parameters is to measure the magnetic susceptibility with high sensitivity. To this end, an AC susceptometer based on the selfinduction technique has been designed. ...

Variable density problems are suitable test-cases for multi-physics codes, as the interaction between flow and transport processes is a characteristic of the observed phenomena. This contribution focuses on density-driven flow benchmarks in porous media. Here FEMLAB® results are shown for the Henry model concerning stationary saltwater intrusion, and the Elder heat convection experiment in a ...

The usage of geothermal heat by the means of railway infrastructure is a relatively new method to tap renewable energy sources. A research project at the Department of Railway Engineering, Transport Economics and Ropeways at Vienna University of Technology in cooperation with the Department of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Enginering and the Atlas Copco MAI Ltd. deals with the development of ...

Stereotactic frames are used during surgical interventions in order to localise and, with high accuracy and precision, help the surgeon to reach a target in the brain. By using an image modality, e.g. MRI or CT, the target can be localised and its coordinates determined prior to the surgery. Previous phenomenological and experimental studies of the Leksell® Coordinate Frame during 3T MRI ...
