Split-Recombine Mixer Benchmark

This example models a split and recombine mixer channel in which a tracer fluid is introduced and mixed by multi-lamination. Diffusion is removed from the model using an extremely low diffusion coefficient so that any numerical diffusion can be studied in the lamination interfaces. The results compare well with Glatzel et al (Ref 1.) in both the lamination patterns and total pressure drop ...

Thermal Bridges in Building Construction—3D Structure Between Two Floors

This model studies the heat conduction in a building structure separating two floors from the external environment. Four materials with distinct thermal conductivities k compose the structure. The exterior and interior boundaries are facing environments respectively at 0°C and 20°C. The lowest temperatures on internal surfaces and the heat fluxes through each surface is compared with published ...

A Transport Problem

A transport problem, modeling stationary transport in one direction, with a discontinuous solution is solved to illustrate the effect of streamline diffusion. A pure stationary transport problems contains a convective term only. This means that oscillations and instabilities from the numerical method are some factors that need to be addressed. Streamline diffusion stabilizes oscillations ...

Vibrations in a Milk Container

This example illustrates a multiphysics application that involves a fluid-structure interaction. It simulates a filled milk container on a conveyor belt, which starts moving. The methodology presented here defines two problems, one for the container walls and one for the fluid. The two problems are subsequently merged into one problem using a special interface condition that imposes ...

Deformation of a Feeder Clamp

This example analyzes the deformation of a feeder clamp under stress. The clamp secures a feeder that carries high-frequency electromagnetic fields, and it’s important that it remains as straight as possible. Forces on the clamp include both those from the feeder as well as those on the sleeve arising from the clamping screw. In this analysis, the feeder clamp is attached to a wall using ...

Heating of a Flow in a Heat Exchanger Unit Cell

In this example, we study the transport by convection and conduction. Such a system may be found in a heat exchanger or in heating of endothermic reactors. The fluid flow enters the unit cell from below and the fluid is heated as it passes the heated cylinder. Since the problem is symmetric, we only need to treat half of the unit cell. We vary the flow rate, using the parametric solver, in ...

Wrapped Thick Cylinder under Pressure and Thermal Loading

This model is compared to a NAFEMS benchmark for composite material modeling, No R0031/2. The geometry is a long, thick, and hollow cylinder consisting of two layers, where an internal pressure is applied. The inner layer is made from an isotropic material, while the outer layer is made from an orthotropic material. This material's properties are equal in the radial and axial directions, yet ...

Cascaded Rectangular Cavity Filter

A cascaded cavity filter provides much better bandpass filter performance compared to a single cavity. Out-of-band rejection improves dramatically using a cascaded design. This model uses three rectangular cavity filters coupled via slots. The calculated S-parameters show excellent out-of-band rejection.

Eigenmodes in a Muffler

In this model, compute the propagating modes in the chamber of an automotive muffler. The geometry is a cross-section of the chamber in the Absorptive Muffler example. The model’s purpose is to study the shape of the propagating modes and to find their cut-off frequencies. As discussed in the documentation for the Absorptive Muffler, some of the modes significantly affect the damping of the ...

The Black-Scholes Equation

The Black-Scholes equation, computes the value u of a European stock option. Black-Scholes derived an analytical expression for the solution to this problem. However, the formula works only for certain cases; for instance, you cannot employ it when sigma and r are functions of x and t. Here, sigma denotes the volatility, r the continuous compounding rate of interest, and x the underlying asset ...
