The rotary kiln process is a commonly practiced method in the industry for producing sponge iron using coal. In the industry, there have been recent reports of premature failures of certain air tubes in a rotary kiln. Most of those cases have concentrated on those air tubes which run into the kiln around the middle portion of the kiln. This research work aims at identifying the probable cause of ...

The Levant has been repeatedly devastated by numerous earthquakes since prehistorical times. In order to understand the role of the dynamics of the water bodies in triggering the deformations in the Levant basin, a new theoretical thermo-mechanical model is constructed and extended by including a fluid flow component, in COMSOL Multiphysics simulation environment. The latter is modeled on a ...

This paper introduces an efficient model to describe energy dissipation in acoustic. When the propagation domain has hard wall boundary conditions only viscous and thermal losses happen and are completely described by the so-called Full Linearized Navier-Stokes model (FLNS) which is implemented in thermoacoutics interface using the COMSOL Acoustics Module. This model defined by a set of ...

Electric, magnetic and electromagnetic (em) methods are widely used to monitor active volcanoes. A review of such applications is presented in Johnston (cit). Em signals were recorded in correspondence of numerous volcanic eruptions, for example in the case of the Mt. Unzen in Giapppone, of Merapi in Indonesia, Etna in Italy and during rapid deformation in Long Valley in California. ...

A comprehensive three dimensional finite element thermal model has been developed using COMSOL Multiphysics® software to understand the thermo-physical behaviour of the uppermost regolith layer of the moon. The model can simulate variable layers, layer thickness and dimensions and can account for complex geometry, different size, irregular meshing, parametric based variation in physics and ...

Methane detection and quantification is of great importance due to its natural abundance, potential to cause explosions and known greenhouse effect. Leak detection and concentration monitoring at source is highly challenging as CH4 is odorless and colorless. This can be performed mounting sensor network over a potential diffusion area. It requires optimal positioning of those sensor nodes to ...

The understanding of pH-sensitive hydrogel swelling response in different buffer environmental condition is essential for its use in different practical applications. This necessitates its simulation in steady state and transient conditions. This paper mainly deals with the details of the numerical simulation performed by developing coupled formulation of chemo-electro-mechanical behavior of ...

微纳米马达是一种能将周围环境的能量转化为自身自主运动的新型智能仿生材料，其在药物的运输与释放，低维材料的合成以及软物质研究中有着重要的应用。基于自电泳的双金属棒马达是研究时间最长的一类马达，它有着与自然界中类似的自组装和群体行为的特性。但是其运动机理复杂且涉及到多个物理场的紧密耦合，这就为其进一步的研究和应用带来了一定的困难。 COMSOL Multiphysics® 可以方便地进行多物理场的模拟。图(1)展示了双金属棒的自电泳机理， 由于棒两端的化学反应造成了带电离子浓度的分布不均匀，进而产生自生电场驱动马达运动。其中传质过程、流体流动以及电场形成相互影响，环环相扣。基于以上物理过程，我们对 COMSOL 中稀物质传递，静电和蠕动流接口进行了有效的耦合，从而实现了马达周围离子场，电场和流场的模拟(图2)，在此基础之上，我们研究了马达的运动速度(图3) ...

Finite Element analysis is used to model 2-D and 3-D paraelectric-dielectric composites (BaTiO3 spherical fillers randomly distributed in constant dielectric matrix). The effective dielectric response and tunability are studied under different filler sizes and different volume fractions. The results are consistent with previous theoretical and experimental results: with the increasing of filler ...
