现在 COMSOL Multiphysics® 中对时域问题的处理大多数通过离散时间来处理，比如微波炉中加热一杯水，杯壁由两半不同介电常数的玻璃组成，杯子在托盘带动下旋转，对杯子中的水进行受热分析。传统的解法是将要分析的过程离散为一定步长的时间点，每算完一个时间点将杯子旋转一定的角度，然后在求解器中设置此次计算结果作为下一个时间点的初值。如果时间步长足够短，便可以模拟水的受热情况。这种做法的不足之处是需要调用 MATLAB 联合求解，计算时间较长。而且还有一个问题是在不同的时间点，由于场分布不同，杯子的位置不同，COMSOL 中剖分的网格应该是不同的，不同的网格节点值如何映射是 COMSOL 中没有解决的问题。我们如果能够把杯子位置的改变转化为对应节点上物质属性参数的变化，将杯子的旋转等效为杯子不动，而杯壁的介电常数随时间周期变化 ...

Ocean is the cornerstone in Earth’s system because the surface of the Earth is covered by ocean about 71%. Ocean also holds approximate 97% of the Earth’s water. Ocean is always moving and continuous. This study is focusing on the ocean movement in Southern Ocean which is located in the southernmost of the Earth. It can be called as Antarctica Ocean because it consists of the waters extending ...

Solder connections are one of the most essential parts of the PCBs. Despite many well-known scientific works that have been done about overlap solder interconnection properties, such as fracture, fatigue and reliability studies, little attention have been given to the investigation of the connection between effects of electrical properties and laboratory soldering shortages such as effects of ...

Modern aluminum casement windows consist of an inner and outer profile made of aluminum, which are separated by an insulating bar made of polyamide (see Figure 1). Due to the low heat conductivity of the plastic material the thermal interaction between the living space and the surrounding is reduced significantly, but thermal expansion of the different materials could cause elastic or even ...

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHEs) are commonly used in the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries for heat transfer, crystallization, and other continuous processes. One of the factor posing difficulties to heat transfer is viscosity. Highly viscous fluids tend to generate deep laminar flow, a condition with very poor heat transfer rates and high pressure losses involving a ...

At Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), COMSOL Multiphysics® software has become a preferred software for certain multiphysics applications in nuclear engineering. This presentation will highlight some of the ongoing activities in the following areas: (1) Highly enriched uranium (HEU) to low enriched uranium (LEU) conversion of the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), (2) New and improved safety ...
引言：超流氦低温系统的正常运行离不开负压换热器，在此选用绕管式的负压换热器。其工况为4.45K~2K之间，低压侧绝对压力3000Pa左右。软件中用到的模块有Livelink for Solidworks、Livelink for Excel、“非等温湍流 k-ε”接口。 结果：求解结果定性上正确，问题在于为了让换热器达到理想换热效果，需要更多匝数的绕管，对计算机要求很大，在该模型中只保留了10匝。

It is possible to control the motion of magnetic beads using a combination of hydrodynamic and electromagnetic forces. In this work, we investigate the possibility to manipulate the motion of beads with different magnetic moments in a special microfluidic structure so as to separate them. We also experimentally prove that this structure is a suitable device to separate beads and show that the ...
