In this work we present the modelling of catalytic radiant heaters. The presentation outlines the mathematical model as well as a Laboratory setup of a catalytic radiant heater.
In this presentation we outline our recent work on Magnetic Liquids, and the great number of application areas these are used. Ferrofluids are nanometer sized magnetic particles, covered by a surfactant, suspended in a carrier medium compatible with the surfactant material. Ferrofluids are applicable to a great and ever increasing number of application areas, such as: • Liquid Seals and ...

In this presentation we introduce the concept of Electrochemical Engineering through simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics. Our special case studies are: • a Parallel Plate Electrochemical Reactor, • a Rotating Ring Disk System, • a 3D Lithium Ion Battery, • a Portable Power System, • a Corroding Surface. These examples are all industrial ones, which shows the power of using ...

Oak Ridge National Laboratory
This presentation concerns our numerical and experimental research on the High Flux Isotope Reactor HFIR, located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In this presentation we give a Brief Pictorial Introduction to the HFIR, som physical properties of Supercritical Hydrogen, and Simulations of both natural and forced convection problems using COMSOL Multiphysics. This presentation also ...

We discuss the use of 3D grain continuum modeling to study grain boundary migration driven by differences in strain energy density. COMSOL Multiphysics is used to compute stresses and strain energy densities in polycrystalline structures caused by temperature changes. We treat each grain as a single crystal, with the anisotropic elastic properties of single crystal Cu appropriately rotated to ...
In this work, we present the principles of 3D scanning. 3D scanning is the process of taking an object in the real world and through finding the relative phase in camera coordinates and projector coordinates, produces a 3D model.
COMSOL, Palo Alto
In this presentation we present where COMSOL Multiphysics and its modules will be in the year 2007. The presentation considers the upcoming features, not only from a developers point of view, but also through examples from different branches of applied physics and mathematics. In addition, we present some important milestones during the past 10 years for COMSOL ...

Department of Chemical Engineering, Princeton University
We study the effect of two-dimensional composite catalyst geometry and spatiotemporal laser heating on the dynamics of CO oxidation on a Pt (110) surface. The project involves a combination of modeling, computation and experimentation. We show (through both FEMLAB and specially designed experiments) that local laser heating actuation appropriately designed in space and time can be critical in ...
Advanced Computational & Engineering Services
In this presentation we give a thorough introduction to advanced engineering using COMSOL Multiphysics. We introduce you to many disciplines of engineering and physics as well as multidisciplinary, multiscaled multiphysics.

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 ...
