Two-dimensional Analysis of Triple Coupled Physics of Structural Mechanics, Diffusion and Heat Transfer in a Gas Pipe

P. Lee-Sullivan[1], and M. Haghighi-Yazdi[1]
[1]Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

In this study, a 2-D model has been built using COMSOL Multiphysics® to analyze a triple coupled physics problem involving simultaneous gas diffusion, heat transfer, and structural mechanics in a pipe due to the flow of high-pressure carbon dioxide. The problem geometry and boundary conditions were based on the analysis by Rambert et al. who have published the most advanced modeling work in ...

Multiphysics Modelling of Food Dehydration during RF Exposure

R. Renshaw[1]
[1]e2v Ltd., Essex, United Kingdom

There is a requirement for an RF (Radiofrequency) industrial dryer that will be capable of dehydrating foodstuff to the correct level after the product has been fried. RF drying should actively target moisture, due to waters high dielectric properties. An industrial dryer can be optimized using modeling to obtain the correct moisture removal rates in the RF drying process. Measurement of the ...

The Use of COMSOL in Teaching Heat and Moisture Transport Modeling in Building Constructions

[1]Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

This paper presents the use of the multiphysics package COMSOL for teaching heat and moisture transport modeling in the research area of building physics. It includes a description on how COMSOL works and six exercises with 2D, 3D, steady state and transient models. It is concluded that COMSOL is a very useful tool for this kind of engineering education. Especially, the abstraction level of ...

The development of powerful negative ion sources requires precise and versatile simulation tools to predict the emittance of the extracted ion beams and the heat load on the electrodes. A first tool is a determination of the plasma beam interface which is accomplished by a set of macro based in the COMSOL Multiphysics environment. Notwithstanding the strong nonlinearities involved, a proper ...

Control of Systems Modeled by COMSOL Multiphysics® as Distributed Parameter Systems

G. Hulkó[1], C. Belavý[1], P. Bucek[1], K. Ondrejkovic[1], and P. Zajícek[1]

[1]Institute of Automation, Measurement and Applied Informatics of Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, Slovak Republic

In systems and control theory dynamical systems described by partial differential equations are known as distributed parameter systems. So for modeling and dynamical analysis of distributed parameter systems wide possibilities are offered by COMSOL Multiphysics® based on numerical solution of sets of partial differential equations by finite element method. Paper presents actual possibilities ...

Design and Simulation of MEMS-based Sensor for Artificial Hand

[1]PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

An artificial hand is the one that replaces the hand lost through trauma, disease, or congenital conditions. The proposed design is to simulate a sensor, used in prosthetic hand so as to measure the pressure required to hold the object, using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The physical parameters such as size, shape and mass of the object were optimized so as to hold an object. The weight of the object ...

Optimization of 3D Layered Metal-Dielectric Stacks (MDS) for Near-Field Fluorescence Imaging

[2]Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), Vienna, Austria

Nano-structures consisting of layered metal-dielectric stacks (MDSs) can be designed to have evanescent transmission and reflection coefficients that oscillate as a function of transverse wavevector and frequency. However, these structures always suffer from the material losses and surface roughness that are detrimental to image reconstruction. As such, we propose an optimized planar anisotropic ...

Particle Focusing Optimization and Stress Analysis of a Magnetic Horn

[2]Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland

A neutrino oscillation experiment aims to the observation of the transformation of a neutrino of a given flavour into a neutrino of a different flavour. A beam of neutrinos is produced through the decay of charged pions which in turn are produced in the collision of high energy accelerated protons impinging on a thick target. A series of magnetic horns is used to focus charged particles produced ...

Modeling Plant Morphodynamics in Predefined COMSOL Multiphysics® Interface

[2]Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Jouy-en-Josas, France

We used a predefined COMSOL Multiphysics® interface to imitate biological growth and shape change (morphodynamics). We found a set of parameters that supply observed morphodynamics for an Arabidopsis embryo during its transition from globular to heart stage.

[1]Organic Electronics, ITN, Linköping University, Norrköping, Sweden

Modeling of an ion bipolar junction transistor (IBJT) is performed using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Our model describes the IBJT which was developed and characterized [1]. The IBJT under consideration consists of an anion-selective collector and emitter, a cation-selective base and a neutral junction. The physical model is based on Poisson and Nernst-Planck (PNP) equations. A two ...
