Studying the Sensitivity of the Wrinkling Process to Mesh Imperfections Using COMSOL Multiphysics® and LiveLink™ for MATLAB®

S. K. Saha[1], M. L. Culpepper[1]
[1]Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA

Wrinkles are formed on a thin film as a result of buckling-based instabilities. This can be used as an inexpensive fabrication technique for generating micro and nano scale periodic patterns. Finite element techniques are used for the predictive design of complex wrinkling patterns. As wrinkles are formed via a bifurcation process, the accuracy of these models is dependent on the initial ...

Structural Mechanics for Real Geometry of Basalt Woven Composites

J. Salacova[1]
[1]Technical university of Liberec, Department of Material Engineering, Liberec, Czech Republic

Woven composites with basalt reinforcement plain 1x1 are examined to define structural mechanics. Woven composites were created by the prepreg technology, 8 layers of plain-weave basalt fabrics were saturated by the precursor, polysiloxane matrix Lukosil®, and joint pressed during temperatures of 200°C and 600°C. The yarns consist of 8000 fibres assembled without twisting. Voids complete entire ...

Fracture on Circuit Board Internal Layers Due to Thermal Stress on Soldered Pins

F. Figueroa[1], P. Aguirre[1]
[1]Sensor Technik Wiedemann GmbH, Kaufbeuren, Germany

Circuit board failures are often ignored because they could be impreceptible. This simulation examines how internal layers around a soldered pin via subject to temperature changes during the soldering process are affected, show the forces involved and determine breaking points. A 2D thermo-mechanical model of a soldered pin is achieved in two simulation steps. First, a connecting pin already ...

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 ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® Software for Simulation of Surface Response to Excitation Method for Manufacturing Process Performance Monitoring - new

H. Fekrmandi[1], N. Miniello[1], R. Kiflemariam[1], I. Nur Tansel[1]
[1]Mechanical & Materials Engineering Department, Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA

In this study, COMSOL Multiphysics® software was used to simulate the surface response to excitation method (SuRE). An aluminum beam with a piezoelectric element bonded is modeled using the COMSOL Acoustics Module. A frequency domain sweep study was performed to simulate the sweep sign generation. The frequency spectrum of the structure is monitored through a frequency range of (20kHz-400kHz). A ...

Prediction of Magnetic Fields, Eddy Currents, and Loads in a Tokamak During a Disruption for Alcator C-Mod's Advanced Outer Divertor - new

[1]Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Plasma Science and Fusion Center, Cambridge, MA, USA
[2]York Plasma Institute, University of York, Heslington, York, UK

COMSOL Multiphysics® has been used to predict the magnetic fields, eddy current, lorenz forces and stresses during a disruption for the new Advanced Outer Divertor for the Alcator C-Mod tokamak. A tokamak is used to study magnetic confinement of plasma for fusion, and a disruption occurs when the plasma decays, rapidly losing all of its current. COMSOL has been used to recreate the fields ...

Thermal-Electrical Study of an Ultra-fast Disconnect Switch with a Piezoelectric Actuator - new

L. Graber[1], C. Widener[1], S. Smith[1], M. Steurer[1]
[1]Center for Advanced Power Systems (CAPS), Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL, USA

A research team at FSU CAPS is developing a novel fast disconnect switch based on a piezoelectric actuator for use in next-gen electric power distribution systems. COMSOL Multiphysics® software was used to optimize geometry and material selection of the disconnect switch. Current conduction, mechanical stress, and electrostatic simulations were performed to confirm that design requirements of ...

Support-Q Optimisation of a Trapped Mode Beam Resonator - new

T. H. Hanley[1], H. T. D. Grigg[1], B. J. Gallacher[1]
[1]Newcastle University, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK

Introducing a disorder into a finite periodic oscillatory system induces the presence of a 'trapped mode': a mode in which the displacement field is localised to the region of the disorder. A main inhibitor to MEMS resonators achieving a high quality (Q) factor is energy radiation through the support to the substrate. The trapped modes present a way to tune this to a minimal value. An initial ...

On the Geometric Nonlinearity Effects of Polymeric Plates on Structural Performance - new

K. Vakkund[1], R. C. Thiagarajan[1]
[1]ATOA Scientific Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

Polymer sheets are widely used for glazing and roofing structural applications. The primary design requirements of these polymeric sheets are to resist uniformly distributed wind loading. Conventional building materials such as steel and glass plates are relative stiffer compared to polymeric sheets. The deflection of high stiff plates is about an order lower than polymeric plates. Polymeric ...

The Simulation of Motion of a Slider upon a Stator Due to Frictional Force Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

H. B. Nemade[1]
[1]Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Guwahati, Assam, India

The Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) linear motor was studied which is developed utilizing the friction principle for driving. The principle says that, when a slider is placed on the Rayleigh waves generated on a stator, the slider moves in reverse direction of the wave due to friction between the stator and the slider. A LiNbO3 piezoelectric substrate is used as a stator where comb structured Al ...
