De Laval nozzles are used in supersonic aerodynamical tubes and engines. They are also employed for the production of cold gas jets to be used in chemical reactions studies. Recently, cold gas jets have been proposed of In-Gas Laser ionization Spectroscopy (IGLIS) The nozzle has a converging and a diverging part with a throat between them. High gas pressure and temperature, and low velocity are ...

This paper proposes a framework for an efficient integration between geometric modeling program and analysis tool for a coming automated aerodynamic design optimization mission. This demand can be addressed by using both in-house codes and commercial software which have the good ability of live-link and efficient integration. In this study, the mathematical modeling of a turbomachinery airfoil ...

Numerical homogenization is based on the use of finite elements for the description of average properties of materials with heterogeneous microstructure and composites. The Representative Volume Element (RVE) of a masonry is solved with COMSOL Multiphysics®. It consists of linearly elastic bricks and elastoplastic mortar joints. A parametric analysis is applied for increasing loading. Results ...

Single coil actuators are representing one important component of ABB’s medium voltage reclosers. Their performance is strongly influenced by the considered material properties as well as by the electronic control units’ properties that will power the actuator. Therefore, this paper focuses on electromagnetic actuators modeling and simulation in COMSOL Multiphysics®.

Singlet oxygen (1O2) is the major cytotoxic agent that kills cells during photodynamic therapy (PDT). Based on a previously-developed model, the distance-dependent reacted 1O2 can be numerically calculated using finite-element method. We improved the model to include microscopic kinetic equations of oxygen diffusion from uniformly distributed blood vessels to the adjacent tissue. The blood vessel ...

SOI (Silicon on Insulator) technology utilizes silicon components on SiO2 layer. Propagating electric field distribution in a SOI waveguide is called mode of the waveguide. Photonic gratings are formed by etching grooves on the top of a waveguide. Gratings can operate in two directions. They can guide incident beam into a waveguide or a waveguide mode out of the structure. We study the grating ...

Electromagnetic actuators are representing one important component of ABB's medium voltage reclosers [1, 2]. Their performance is strongly influenced by the considered material properties as well as by the electronic control units that will power the actuator. Depending on the studied phenomena, different modeling, simulation and optimization methodologies are being used for medium voltage ...

Today, new processors provide increasing number of cores at rather constant clocking frequency. In sequential optimization algorithms, the forward model simulation is typically accelerated by multiple cores (shared-memory parallelization, SMP), which provides only limited speed-up and hardware efficiency. However, the Comsol Multiphysics® license includes parametric design capability allowing ...

Morphogenesis is a tightly regulated process that has been studied for decades. Previously we developed data-based mechanistic models for a range of developmental processes with a view to integrate the available knowledge and to better understand the underlying regulatory logic. In our previous papers on simulating organogenesis in COMSOL Multiphysics® we discussed methods to efficiently solve ...
