The electric field plays a very important role in the electrospinning process, which needs to be seriously considered in the electrospinning configuration developing. High voltage involved in electrospinning process leads to difficulty in measuring the electric field. Numerical simulation is used to design the electric field, and experiments are carried out to validate the spinneret and ...

A two-dimensional atrial tissue model has been constructed in COMSOL Multiphysics® software to study the propagation of action potential and electrograms. The model presents the atrial electrograms recorded with a mapping catheter. A 2D atrial tissue model is simulated using the Courtemanche et al. cell model equations. PDE in coefficient form was used in COMSOL Multiphysics® to reproduce the ...

Induction motors, as any other industrial products, have to comply with various requirements on noise levels. Therefore, it is essential to use an appropriate prediction tool to verify and optimize the design of an induction motor with respect to the acoustic performances. The paper will focus on the prediction of the magnetic noise generated and radiated by a specific motor. The challenge is ...

The aim of this work is to present a model capable to describe the behaviour of a thermal flow sensor under every physical aspect. A generic thermal flow sensor relates the flow properties with a variation in the temperature profile inside the device itself. Thus, it is locally heated up with a resistive element biased with an external current, surrounded by one or more temperature sensing ...

Rotor blades for wind turbines are made of GFRP material. They have to be designed to withstand wind and weather over their approximately 20 years of lifetime. The ability to monitor the mechanical stress is crucial in order to reduce maintenance costs and to maximize operational availability. This paper presents the combination of SPICE® and COMSOL Multiphysics®, in order to reduce ...

Today, low noise is a mandatory feature for power transformers to comply with customer specifications and environmental regulations. Therefore, it is crucial to develop sound prediction tools with sufficient accuracy to avoid overkill margins in design and costly modifications after transformer completion. The paper will focus on core noise which is a typical multiphysics phenomenon involving ...

A specific issue in transformer modeling using the finite element method is the consideration of electric sheets or other laminated core materials which are used to reduce eddy currents. It would be impractical to explicitly model a large number of sheets as this would lead to a large number of elements and hence to unacceptable computational costs. Homogenization procedures overcome this ...

This paper presents numerical simulation of plate wave modes in thin stainless steel plates using a racetrack spiral coil electromagnetic acoustic transducer (EMAT), which works under the principle of acousto-elastic effect, called Lorentz force mechanism. EMATs are useful for non-contact ultrasonic nondestructive testing (NDT) of metallic materials for detecting defects and measuring thickness. ...

The goal of our work was to calculate a patient-specific brain conductivity map for predicting the extent to which direct stimulation therapy can strategically propagate through pathological white matter. Our laboratory developed isotropic and anisotropic human brain finite element method (FEM) models derived from SPGR magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), ...
