For museums and the like, the indoor climatic conditions should preserve the exhibited works of art and ensure comfort conditions for people visiting or working inside them. The present paper concerns a primary study of the Hall of the Two Hundred of the Old Palace in Florence. General 3D modeling principles were used, which can be applied to many situations where there is interaction ...

The control of the flux within continuous casting systems used in the metallurgical field can be obtained through the application of electromagnetic. The model here has been solved through a linear time-harmonic solver. The results of the electromagnetic model have then been applied to the fluid-mechanics model through volume Lorentz forces.

The main object of this paper is the determination of the impulse response, in the low frequency range, for calculating the reverberation time and the energetic parameters in this space. An absorbing material is modelled by using the propagation of sound waves in an equivalent fluid. The results of this Finite Element model are compared with experimental measurements of impulse responses ...

Heat and mass transfer can be analyzed for conditions that may limit shelf-life. With this target, the purpose of the present work is the development of a general model which is applicable to a large variety of packaging configurations, food products and environmental conditions. To this end, COMSOL Multiphysics is exploited in a full 3D geometry.

A numerical analysis of the conjugate optical-thermal fields in an amorphous silicon thin film deposited on a glass substrate and irradiated by a moving Gaussian laser source is carried out. The combined optical and thermal models are solved by means of COMSOL Multiphysics. Results are given for continuous and pulsed moving Gaussian heat sources and they are presented as temperature ...

The aim of the present work is the formulation of a theoretical model describing the transport phenomena involved in a food drying process by a convective oven. The proposed model represents a general and predictive tool capable of describing the real oven’s behavior over a wide range of process and fluid-dynamic conditions. The resulting system of non-linear unsteady-state partial ...

Microcantilevers made of crystal silicon are probably the most diffused type of MEMS because of their simple fabrication and their vast applications. In this presentation we treat the mechanical behaviour of silicon mirocantilevers, and also give an overview of the many application areas that these apply to.

The present work exploits modelling of a heat exchanger single channel during the pasteurization of milk. A 2D computation has been performed with COMSOL Multiphysics showing the potential application to optimized geometries and for a variety of products of known biochemical evolution.
