A membrane distillation process equipped with mesh-type material spacers has been modeled as a two-dimensional conjugate problem in which a simultaneous numerical solution of the momentum and energy of the feed and cold solutions have been carried out. The results shows that the center suspended spacer produces the highest average shear stress, and gives the highest spacer efficiency at all ...

Continuous forming and propagation of large planar deformations on a thin solid elastic film can create propulsion when the film is immersed in a fluid. In this work, we present a numerical analysis of the effect of traveling plane-wave deformations on an elastic-film actuator within a fluid medium inside a channel. In particular, we analyzed a micropump that consists of a wave actuator. ...

Atherosclerosis affects the arterial blood vessels causing stenosis in the arteries because of which the artery hardens resulting in loss of elasticity in the affected region. In this paper, we present an approach to model the pulsating flow of blood through such an atherosclerosis affected region of the artery using the finite element method. We further discuss the statistical model used to ...

In a Solar Hot Water System, the hot water from the solar collector enters at the top of the storage tank. A relevant question concerning the storage is what will the outlet temperature be. In the present work we present a way to model Solar Hot Water Systems.
High-intensity discharge (HID) lamps are highly-efficient light sources with many applications. Depending on the dimensions of the electrode, lamp current, and waveforms, the plasma may attach to the cathode in a diffuse mode, that covers the electrode tip surface, or a localized mode where heating and current transfer occur in a local region of the electrode surface. The localized mode is ...

This presentation is concerned with the modelling of deformable non-Newtonian Flow using COMSOL Multiphysics. This general modelling approach has more concrete applications such as paper coating in a metering size press, meniscus location by PIDS to mention a few.

The pilot Molte lead-bismuth target circuit (TC-1) in the University of Nevada was designed for beam power of 1 MW accelerator driven system (ADS). Circulation of the liquid alloy is driven by an annular linear induction pump. A numerical study of the pump efficiency has been conducted to determine which operational parameters are responsible for this low efficiency and to give insight ...
