Finite element models for the solution of underwater acoustics problems

Mario Zampolli
NATO Undersea Research Centre
La Spezia, Italy

Acoustic waves are used in SONAR systems for the detection and classification of objects which may be swimming in the water column, proud on the seafloor, or buried below the sediment. In some applications, such as low frequency detection and classification of structurally complex objects immersed in a fluid, signal processing techniques must be aided by a-priori model based knowledge of the ...

Computational Cardiology with COMSOL Multiphysics

Simonetta Filippi
Universit√° Campus Biomedico
Rome, Italy

Mathematical models of heart activity represent today a very important research area both in Theoretical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. COMSOL Multiphysics is applied to solve the non linear equations describing the propagation of electric signals in cardiac tissue eventually with mechanical or thermal coupling. These physiological phenomena, are described by the Fitzhugh-Nagumo equations ...

Numerical simulation of separation flows with FEMLAB 3.1

Carlo Gualtieri
University of Napoli Federico II
Naples, Italy

Flow separation is a common and interesting phenomenon in fluid mechanics with significant effects in practical applications. Thus, it has been the focus of intensive study for many years. The objective of this presentation is to investigate laminar separation flows over a backward-facing step and over a rectangular trench using COMSOL. --------------------------------- Carlo Gualtieri ...

Developing direct methanol fuel cells using FEMLAB as a modeling tool

Gianluca Bollito
Centro Ricerche FIAT
Orbassano, Italy

Fuel cell converts chemical energy directly to electrical energy through oxidation-reduction reactions. It consists of an electrolyte between two electrodes, the anode and the cathode. The engineering and materials challenges that must be overcome to produce fuel cells small enough for micro-applications (telephones, PDAs, etc.) are enormous, and will require innovative ...

From PDE Toolbox to COMSOL Multiphysics 3.2: Past, Present and Future of Teaching and Research in Thermo-fluids

Enrico Nobile
Università di Trieste
Trieste, Italy

This presentation introduces the history of thermo-fluidics research and teaching and of COMSOL Multiphysics; from its beginnings as the PDE Toolbox until now. --------------------------------- Keynote speaker's biography: Enrico Nobile is Full Professor of thermodynamics and heat transfer at DINMA, University of Trieste. Prof. Nobile is author or co-author of more than 70 publications in ...

Modeling Light-induced Thermal Effects in Ocular Media by Finite Element Method

Francesca Rossi
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche Firenze
Florence, Italy

COMSOL Multiphysics has been used as a supporting tool to our experimental research. Temperature rise inside biological samples was evaluated, giving us the possibility to study the heat damage induced in the tissue, the mechanism of photothermal processes, and to optimize surgical procedures. --------------------------------- Francesca Rossi was one of the keynote speakers at the COMSOL ...

Numerical study of unsteady flow and heat transfer in corrugated geometries

Sara Rainieri
University of Parma
Parma, Italy

Surface corrugation is a widely used convective heat transfer enhancement passive technique. In this presentation we will perform a numerical study of unsteady flow and heat transfer in corrugated geometries. --------------------------------- Sara Rainieri was one of the keynote speakers at the COMSOL User's Conference, fall 2005 in Milano

High frequency loudspeakers vibro-acoustic modeling

Mattia Cobianchi
C.I.A.R.E. s.p.a.
Senigallia, Italy

In this presentation the modeling of a PET dome for a high frequency compression driver using the structural mechanics application mode coupled to the acoustic application mode in Femlab 3.1 allows the computation of the acoustic pressure field in the air surrounding the device. Optimization of the model to reduce computation time involves the choice of both the radius of the 2D axial ...
