Theoretical and experimental studies on the rotation of rigid inclusions under simple shear flow have typically considered infinite width shear zones and perfect attachment of inclusion to the matrix. According to these models, during progressive simple shear a coherent object would continuously rotate synthetically, which is not the case in many natural ductile shear zones. In this work we ...

Les décharges luminescentes à pression atmosphérique sont étudiées expérimentalement en laboratoire pour la valorisation des alcanes et notamment la production d'hydrogène à partir du méthane. La modélisation des dispositifs usuels est complexe compte tenu de l'aspect non stationnaire des décharges. Afin d'évaluer le poids des paramètres de réglage d'un réacteur nous avons ...

Electron interferometry using the Aharonov-Bohm (AB) effect finds many applications in industrial areas such as future nanocomputer technologies, physical random number generators, electron phase microscopy and holography, to name just a few. The presence of a confined magnetic field surrounded by the interferometer arms, as originally proposed by Aharonov and Bohm is however a source of ...

Calibrating electric instruments of the Huygens probe and modelling the dielectric properties of the atmosphere and of the surface of titan
Centre d'Etude des Environnements Terrestre et Planétaires (CETP), Saint Maur des Fossès, France
In 14 January, 2005, the Huygens Probe has descent through the atmosphere of Titan and has survived to touchdown, collecting data in the atmosphere and on the surface of the largest moon of Saturn. One of the instruments, the Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI), includes the Permittivity, Waves, and Altimetry (PWA) analyser, which is a subsystem for studying the electric activity of ...

The fatigue is the most important criterion for the securities parts (brake system for example). The increasing use of shaped cast aluminium in the security automotive parts has focused interest on the fatigue of theses alloys. The specific foundry software use empirical laws that do not fit with the reality, above all concerning the aluminium alloys. We proposed a new physical parsimonious ...

Biological cells are complex structures which are internally and externally regulated by mechanical forces and chemical signals. To better understand these complex interrelationships, bioengineers have developed numerous mathematical predictive models which characterize discrete biological functions of idealized cells. However, it is increasingly apparent that cell structure and function are ...

The axon in one of the most important components in nervous impulse transmission. It is very important to understand how the electric potential changes along the axon, using the telegraph equation. In the following simulation with FEMLAB we show the transmission and diffusion along the axon in 3D when a squared voltage is applied. The simulation is used for educational purposes in ...

The standard Galerkin method employing standard finite elements is not a robust approach for transport problmes exhibiting multiscale behaviour . The elements enriched with bubble functions improve the stability of the solution dramatically. It is shown that basically all of stable methods are derived from particular class of subgrid scale models . To prevent it, multiscale finite ...

This note is devoted to a domain decomposition method solving the Helmholtz equation in the frequency domain. We need to perform this global computation as a sequence of local computations, each computation being performed on a single subdomain, without any knowledge of the geometry and meshing of the other subdomains. This is useful when the global geometry is too big to be stored in a single ...
