Modeling of Coupled Fluid Flow and Shear-induced Solidification Kinetics in Rheocasting of Aluminium Alloys

G. Maizza, and G. Lorenzatto
Politecnico di Torino
Dipartimento di Scienza dei Materiali ed Ingegneria Chimica
Torino, Italy

The model proposed by Schneider et al., for polymers is herein adapted in order to assess its suitability in elucidating the thixotropic behavior of aluminum alloys. The COMSOL Multiphysics program is employed to solve the inherent coupled mathematical problem, consisting in the kinetic ordinary differential equations and the momentum and energy transport partial differential equations. The ...

Sequential Simulation in COMSOL using Differential Equations to Perform Digital Switching

L. Lam, and R. Darling
University of Washington
Seattle, WA

Many physical systems contain sequential modes of operation. The sequence is one-way and switching between modes is dependent upon specific internal parameters of the system itself. While COMSOL provides the flexibility to perform time-domain simulation and time-based modifications of boundary conditions, simulating sequential systems based upon internal physical variables in COMSOL can be a ...

Multi-Domain Analysis of Silicon Structures for MEMS Based-Sensors

N. Bhalla[1], S. Li[2], and D. Chung[1]
[1]Chung Yuan Christian University, Chungli,Taiwan
[2]National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan

Investigation in this paper aims at performing Mechanical Stress Strain analysis, Thermal, Piezoresistive and Piezoeletric analysis of Silicon Structures using COMSOL. The simulation results have been cross checked by mathematical calculation.

Surface Aeration System Modeling using COMSOL

G. Selembo, P. Selembo, J. Stanton, and G. Paulsen
University of North Carolina
Charlotte, NC

Surface aeration systems are used in the wastewater treatment industry for the transfer of oxygen in the activated sludge process. These systems are capital intensive and also require a significant amount of energy to operate. Scale-up and design of these systems is largely empirical, and due to the size of these systems, modifications for experimental testing can be economically prohibitive. ...

Modeling of the Heat Transfer Between a CO2 Sequestration Well and the Surrounding Geological Formation

[1]Mechanical Engineering, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada
[2]Process Engineering and Applied Science, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada

In a carbon sequestration system CO2 would be pumped down a well and into a reservoir at supercritical temperatures and pressures. An important consideration is the long term stability of the reservoir. The goal of these simulations is to thermally model the injection well and investigate the temperature gradient developed in the cap rock. Ultimately, results from this study will lead to an ...

FSI for Coolant Flow in Research-type Nuclear Reactors

F. Curtis[1], K. Ekici[1], and J. Freels[2]
[1]University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN
[2]Oak Ridge National Lab, Oak Ridge, TN

The High Flux Isotope Reactor, located at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is scheduled to undergo a conversion of the fuel used and this proposed change requires an extensive analysis of the flow through the reactor core. The core consists of approximately 500 very thin and long fuel plates through which the coolant (water) flows at a very high rate. Therefore, the design and the flow ...

Behavioural Change on EM Exposure and its Modelling

Dabok, Udaipur
Rajasthan, India

This paper presents the ill-effects of EM exposure through experiment, simulation and modelling using COMSOL Multiphysics. Biological Effects of microwave radiations on living creatures are studied supported with the practical results.

Conjugate Heat Transfer for Wireless Power Amplifier

M. Williamson, S. Khan, and J. Kuntz
Kansas State University
Salina, Kansas

Wireless power transfer is an emerging technology with many potential applications. This technology may be of particular value when remotely controlled in extreme physical conditions. This study explores the ability of the COMSOL software to predict the performance of thermal management systems coupled with a commercially available wireless power amplifier. This study has undertaken the task ...

Efficient Generation of Surface Plasmon Polaritons with Asymmetric Nano-structures

J. Chen
Peking University

This paper covers the following: * All-Optical Light Modulation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) is achieved using asymmetric single nanoslits. A high on/off switching ratio of >20 dB and phase variation of >? were observed with the device lateral dimension of only about 2 ?m. * Efficient unidirectional excitation of SPP as well as beam splitting are achieved using the ...

Optical Manipulation of Microscopic Objects

R. Ozawa
Yokohama University

In recent years, optical manipulation using optical radiation pressure has been widely studied. In this study, the radiation pressure exerted on various kinds of microscopic objects with different laser beams was evaluated by COMSOL Multiphysics software. By changing beam shapes, microscopic objects can be trapped and rotated. This paper is in Japanese.
