We apply COMSOL Multiphysics for reproducing our experimental observations of fluid flow and transport processes in geological media. Our experimental GeoEPT-method allows the 4D monitoring of transport processes in geological material on laboratory scale. Explicitly we import “realistic structures” from geologic samples scanned by means of computer tomography (CT) as stl-files into COMSOL ...

Studies by Nishaat (2009) showed that Terzaghi\'s bearing capacity model didn\'t adequately predict the bearing capacity failure in Philippi Dune sands. Nishaat carried out her investigation using a physical model that was built in a geotechnical laboratory. The failure surfaces she observed in the sands did not resemble those predicted by Terzaghi and Meyerhof\'s models. However the use of a ...

Campi Flegrei caldera is a good example of the most explosive volcanism on the Earth, a potential source of global catastrophes. It has the advantage that the most interesting structural details and main volcanic features appear located at shallower depth, making it a natural candidate for a deep drilling project aimed to understand the volcanic structure. The CFDDP project, aims to understand ...

Otoacoustic emission (OAE) tests provide an objective examination of the cochlear function. However, the validity of OAE tests is affected negatively by calibration errors. This report sheds light on the evanescent waves arising at the interface between the OAE probe and the ear canal, and analyses the impact of minor eartip modifications on the acoustic length estimation of ear canals, using ...

An Archimedean Spiral antenna is the common frequency independent antenna which have very large bandwidth. Archimedean Spiral antenna are circularly polarized and typically have radiation patterns with peaks perpendicular to the plane of the spiral. Micro-machining techniques improves the bandwidth characteristics and the radiation efficiency of the antenna. Simulations and results with COMSOL ...

Rapid mixing is of essential importance in many microfluidic applications such as chemical reactions, drug delivery, sequencing or synthesis of nucleic acids, protein crystallization, etc. However, it is difficult to mix fluids in microchannels since flows in these channels are generally laminar and molecular diffusion is usually insufficient to mix fluids. Using a combination of turns and ...

This paper showed that: * SAG-MOCVD is a powerful tool to fabricate OEICs and is also effective to extract true surface kinetics during MOCVD. * GaAs-MOCVD process was examined by SAG analysis where it was seen that below 600ºC, surface kinetics shows non-linear behavior. * Surface reaction rate constant of adsorbed species was constant against offset angle, while adsorption equilibrium ...

A novel technique for semiconductor manufacturing is introduced: Silicon-On-Nothing. This process consists of an initial cylindrical trench which has a shape evolution under certain conditions: high temperature (1100 °C), low pressure (10 Torr) and a non-oxidizing atmosphere such as hydrogen. These conditions enable a, mainly, surface diffusion phenomenon whose final result is an empty space ...
