This paper presents preliminary estimations of CO2 overpressure into the reservoir and CO2 leakage through the caprock and the overburden. A simple, two-phase flow model in porous media based on Darcy’s law was used, in order to explore easily long time periods. The models produced by COMSOL Multiphysics allow sensitivity studies and preliminary evaluations of the relations between CO2 leakage ...

In this work we want to explore some techniques, microfluidic and electrospray-ionization based, suitable for dynamic microarrays\' fabrication. The fabrication techniques are based on manipulation and self-assembly of selective coated micro and nanobeads. The simulation will include electro-osmotic flow, species transport, and electrostatics.
ComsolGrid – A Framework For Performing Large-Scale Parameter Studies Using COMSOL Multiphysics and Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC)

BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) is an open-source framework for solving large-scale and complex computational problems by means of public resource computing (PRC). In contrast to massive parallel computing, PRC applications are distributed onto a large number of heterogeneous client computers connected by the Internet where each computer is assigned an individual task ...

We present here our work on deconvolution of a magnetic probe to mesure electromagnetic emissions in near-field zone. To achieve this work,we have chosen a rectangular waveguide (WR90) as a radiating structure.Theoritical near-field is simulated using a FEM software (COMSOL) and also obtained by using a program based on transverse operator method (TOM), that lead to a very good field ...

Porous membranes with pore sizes in the micrometer scale are required in many micro systems dedicated to biological and chemical applications. If their thickness is in the same dimension like the pore diameter they are called microsieves. On the one hand, a thin membrane guarantees a small flow resistance but on the other hand the mechanical strength is reduced. We developed a process which ...

In this study we evaluate transport, retention and subsistence of Escherichia coli (E. coli), a common fecal indicator bacteria, in a model (2x1m) of a constructed wetland. Transport occurs in the unsaturated and saturated zone. Inactivation is accounted for as a kinetic first-order process. Retention is assumed to be dominated by solid-air-water interface straining and is modeled with a kinetic ...

We aim to develop an in vitro culture system to mimic the human bone marrow stem cell niche in an artificial perfusion bioreactor environment to culture human adult stem cells. State of the art human bone marrow stem cell research shows that even smallest changes in the physical, thermo dynamical or biochemical environment induce a differentiation of human bone marrow stem cells into other cell ...

Feasibility studies in the field of membrane processes are generally first carried out with bench-scale membrane filtration cells. These small laboratory cells also allow evaluating the influence of operational parameters and the membrane performances. Smart design of the cell geometry may improve the flow distribution and consequently the membrane filtration performances by increasing shear ...

Surface coating can fullfil their function satisfactorily over an extended period of time only if there is a good bond between the concrete substrate and the coating. The most numerous cases of blistering affect the airtight covers of the concrete subjected to negative pressures of humidity from the support. The general objective of this study is the understanding of the blistering phenomenon. ...
