This paper reports the optimization results of the new generation of honeycomb spherical photovoltaic cells (SPVC) with respect to the series electrical resistance. The electrical potential (voltage) distribution is found by numerically integrating the mathematical model of the DC current distribution within the SPVC. --------------------------------- Keynote speaker's ...

A two dimensional model of a three-coil Active Magnetic Bearing (AMB) is considered where effects associated with stator and shaft lengths are omitted. The performed analysis plays an important role in the design procedures of AMB and helps in the verification of the construction assumptions.

The paper presents an implementation in COMSOL Multiphysics of Holzapfel's material model for the viscoelastic stress response of carbon-black filled rubber at large strains. The simulation uses the Structural Mechanics Module finite strain formulation based on the material configuration with the right Cauchy-Green tensor as a strain measure. The time independent response of the rubber is ...

The paper presents results of energy radiation from a point source, which is situated in a metal case with a quadrangular opening. The opening is shielded with a transparent metal grid to prevent the leakage of electromagnetic field. The cases with and without the grid are simulated.

The viscous, two-dimensional, incompressible and laminar time dependent heat transfer flow through a ferromagnetic fluid is considered in this paper. Flow takes place in channel between two porous walls under the influence of the magnetic dipole located beyond the channel. Results are obtained using standard computational fluid dynamics code in COMSOL with modifications to account for ...

The rod-plane gap is extensively used for studies on the breakdown characteristics of gases. In this study, influence of a dielectric barrier on the electric field and potential distributions in a vertically arranged rod-plane gap was numerically analysed by using the finite element method. Maximum field in the gap was examined for different gap distances, size and material of the ...

A qualitative flow analysis by numerical simulation of a fermentation process in a sorghum factory is presented. The simulations were done with the Numerical modeling software, COMSOL Multiphysics. Several flow arrangements were considered in the study and as a result, optimized flow configurations were evolved.

Two mathematical models of the electrokinetic flow are presented where the electroosmotic flow is induced by the interaction of a surface electric charge with a perpendicularly imposed electric field. In order to solve such problems, an anisotropic mesh of rectangular finite elements is developed. Stationary distributions of the model variables are computed for various sets of model ...

In this paper, we present a modern non-destructive method, using COMSOL Multiphysics, for the evaluation of the stress and strain states in metallic structures. This method can be successfully applied in civil engineering, installations or in structures where the determination of stress state can ot be realized by conventional method.
