Within the field of hot metal bulk forming the demand arises for fully three-dimensionally tailored properties at the microstructural level, nevertheless, reaching a predefined geometry with such tailored properties puts high requirements on the control mechanisms utilized in the process chain for combined heating, metal forming, and cooling processes. A simulation based rapid control ...

[1]Electronics and Communication Engineering, Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

In this work, a MEMS based condenser microphone [1,2] using Polyimide as the diaphragm has been designed. The microphone structure has a backplate placed on top of the diaphragm. The backplate and the diaphragm are made up of polyimide. The two polyimide plates are separated by air gap which is achieved by using Aluminium as a sacrificial layer in between, which is etched away to create the air ...

Solving the Paraxial Wave Equation using COMSOL

P. Mikulski, K. Mcilhany, and R. Malek-Madani
United States Naval Academy
Annapolis, MD

Here we present and discuss numerical solutions to the paraxial wave equation using COMSOL (2D, PDE, General Form, time-dependent analysis). Ultimately, the goal is to extend this treatment of free-space beam propagation to the case of propagation through a medium that is non-uniform and subject to non-linear effects where the beam itself is modifying the properties of the medium in which it is ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® Models Combined with Experiments to Teach PID Controller Tuning

W. Clark[1]
[1]Chemical Engineering Department, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, USA

A laboratory exercise to learn PID controller tuning can be time consuming and taxing on the equipment. A purely equation-based, virtual controller tuning exercise might not seem relevant to real world processes. We have combined a physical process with a COMSOL Multiphysics model to teach the practical aspects of PID controller tuning. Students ran simulated experiments with COMSOL to test ...

Reliable Full-Wave EM Simulation of a Single-Layer SIW Interconnect with Transitions to Microstrip Lines - new

[1]ITESO - Universidad Jesuita de Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico

We present a procedure to obtain reliable EM responses for a SIW interconnect with microstrip line transitions. The procedure focuses on two COMSOL® configuration settings: meshing size and simulation bounding box. Once both are properly configured, the implemented structure is tested by perturbing the simulation bounding box to ensure it has no effect on the EM responses.

Optimization of Micro-Structured Waveguides in Lithium Niobate (Z-Cut) - new

[1] Aston University, Birmingham, UK

We present an optimization procedure to improve the propagation properties of the depressed-cladding, buried micro-structured waveguides formed in a z-cut lithium niobate (LN) crystal by high repetition rate femtosecond (fs) laser writing. It is shown that the propagation wavelength for which the confinement losses of ordinary (O) and extraordinary ordinary (E) polarizations are below 1 dB/cm ...

We use COMSOL Multiphysics to solve time-dependent optimal control problems for partial differential equations whose optimality conditions can be formulated as a PDE. For a class of linear-quadratic model problems we summarize known analytic results on existence of solutions and first order optimality conditions that exhibit the typical feature of time-dependent control problems, namely the fact ...

The magnetic field gradient produced by an electromagnet gripper head depends on its design. Stochastic Methods offer certain robustness to the design optimization process. In this paper, Improved Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization (IDPSO) searching technique is applied to the shape and magnetic field gradient optimization of an electromagnet head. The magnetic field and forces are ...

COMSOL Multiphysics Models for Teaching Chemical Engineering Fundamentals: Absorption Column Models and Illustration of the Two-Film Theory of Mass Transfer

W. Clark
Chemical Engineering Department, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, USA

COMSOL® models have been developed for teaching gas absorption fundamentals. Model results are compared to environmentally significant experimental results for removing CO2 and SO2 from air using water as solvent. For concentrated gas mixtures, the models are shown to be equivalent to but easier to use than the traditional graphical integration method and to a solution method developed with ...
