The pH-sensitive hydrogels are responsive to the pH of surrounding solution, which often resemble to biomaterials. Recently, pH-sensitive hydrogels are widely used in various devices as sensing media. We present the simulation of swelling characteristic of 3D-arbitarary-geometry, pH-sensitive hydrogel in steady state conditions. Three nonlinear partial-differential equations that are ...

Soil’s electromagnetic properties adversely affect the performance of electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensors and if conditions are severe enough, render them useless. A simple circuit model is often used to express the electromagnetic induction response of a target analytically. This analytic model produces a response function that contains unique characteristics based on the target’s ...

The current drive to go beyond the state of the art in novel near field scanning microwave microscope (NSMM) metrology at the micro scale, to make them capable of traceable measurements on functional materials, has led to the development of a finite element model of the probe of a resonant near field scanning microwave microscope (RNSMM). The model has been validated against an analytical ...

Introduction: Solver section of FEA plays a very important role; it takes the input from the preprocessor and solves millions of equations using numerical methods. Capability of any analysis tools can be measured based on the solver. Understanding the nature and operation of various structural solid mechanics solvers is the interest of the present study. Results: Contact pressure is ...

The development and analysis of interconnects in inhomogeneous structures such as very large scale integration chips, printed circuit boards, and multichip modules are essential for next-generation electronic products. In this paper, we illustrate fast and sufficiently accurate computation of capacitance matrices of multilayered and multiconductor interconnects applying the finite element ...

The Levitron offers an interesting demonstration of natural magnetic levitation using permanent magnets. It is composed by a small magnetized top and a circular magnetized base with a hole on its center. The top is placed in an area where magnetic field configuration and gyroscopic torques allow the existence of a locus of stable equilibrium. In this paper, we intend to dimension and realize a ...

Linear wave propagation through inhomogeneous structures of size R?? (Fig.1) is a computationally challenging problem, in particular when using finite element methods, due to the steep increase of the number of degrees of freedom as a function of R/?. Fortunately, when the geometry of the problem possesses symmetries, one may choose an appropriate basis in which the stiffness matrix of the ...

Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR) play a prominent role in contributing power for the Nuclear Energy Programme in India. In 540MWe type PHWR reactors, there are horizontally placed Liquid Injection Shutdown System (LISS) tubes for injecting poison into the moderator to clamp down the nuclear power under trip conditions. The Horizontally placed LISS pipes are placed perpendicular to the ...

Although resuscitation during pregnancy is relatively uncommon and rarely causes death, they have a particularly large impact in terms of the mortality of the unborn child and long-term effects on families and society as whole. In this paper, we present a new 3D finite element model of a pregnant female torso which accounts for presence of amniotic liquid and calculate current density ...
