This paper deals with the Cage System, developed by Roctool, which heats and transforms composite materials. The simulation shows the importance of the inductor design and position relative to the mold.

In this work, we present the modeling of V-shaped silicon micro-cantilevers. The sensitivity of different V-shaped silicon cantilevers is estimated, as a function of the geometrical dimensions of the cantilever.

The hyporheic zone is defined as an area where water and matter exchange through the sand, gravel, sediments and other permeable soils under and beside streams. Its impact on the hydro-system function is determined by the proportion of subsurface biogeochemical reactions and the fluxes of water exchanging with the hyporheic zone and flowing through the porous sediments. The objective of our ...

Gliding discharges at atmospheric pressure were investigated in the GREMI laboratory for different applications such as syngas production from methane steam reforming. In our case, the kinetics could be described by using a simplified second order model in which the rate reaction coefficient is obtained from a linearization of parameters. Calculated and experimental data are presented ...

In this paper, an investigation of heat and mass transfer in fabrics used in the manufacture of comfortable sportswear is presented. It is based on a model which is described by partial differential equations representing the mass balance of free and adsorbed water and vapour and the heat balance in the fabric. The model involves several unknown physical and transfer parameters. Two ...

In this paper, we present a mathematical model for simulating the mass transfer, during the osmotic dehydration of mango cubes. The mass balance equation for the transport of each constituent is established separately for intracellular and extracellular volumes but accounts for the mass exchange across the cell membrane and the shrinkage of whole tissue.

In this paper, we model the thermal decomposition of an energetic materiel inside a vessel located in the furnace of a thermal gravimetric apparatus. As a case study, we treat the case with ammonium perchlorate single particles.
Implementation of a Multi-Axial Pseudoelastic Model to Predict the Dynamic Behavior of Shape Memory Alloys

Shape Memory Alloys are good candidates for being used as passive dampers, strain sensors, stiffness or shape drivers. In order to develop the use of these alloys in structural vibration control, we present in this paper how to implement a phenomenological model based on the Rl model in COMSOL Multiphysics. We use this implementation to simulate internal loops in order to characterize the ...

This paper presents thermo-mechanical and electromagnetic computational results in the time-harmonic and transient domains. This includes the stress analysis induced by the magnetic field and resulting pressure, the Joule heating with skin effects and the corresponding deformation.

The aim of this work is to study tissue morphogenesis as a consequence of the constitutive cells dynamics. Tissue morphogenesis is modelled as a cellular system coupled with a global chemical control. p> Two concrete examples are presented, the secondary growth of conifer trees and the epithelial invagination.
