COMSOL Grab Bag: How to Use a Versatile CFD Code to Model Interesting Problems from Cryogenic Storage to Biofuel Production

Emily Nelson
Senior Research Engineer,
NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH, USA

Emily Nelson received her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. She is a senior research engineer at NASA Glenn Research Center and specializes in the formulation and solution of problems in microgravity science, multiphase flow, porous media, risk analysis, and gravitational biology. This leads her to fundamental and applied approaches on a range of issues ...

Quasi-static Analysis on the Effect of Metal Penetrating Depth into the Substrate in Microstriplines

S. Musa, and M. Sadiku
Prairie View A&M University Networking Academy (PVNA), Prairie View, TX, USA

The effect of metallization thickness on planar transmission lines plays an essential role in microwave integrated circuits and thin film technology, especially in the propagation characterization and the electric field distribution in the structures. The objective of this paper is to consider the planar transmission lines with finite thickness not penetrating and penetrating into isotropic ...

Temperature Excursions at the Pulp-Dentin Junction during the Curing of Light-Activated Dental Restorations

[3]Department of Dental Clinical Sciences, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada

Heat produced during the curing of light-activated dental restorations could damage the dental pulp. Given the prevalence of composite restorations and the importance of avoiding injury to the pulp, efforts should be made to minimize the temperature increase that occurs at the pulp-dentin junction during light-curing. In this investigation we develop and evaluate a COMSOL Multiphysics FEM tooth ...

Modelling of Selected Electromechanical Phenomena in the DC Machine

M. Antczak, P. Idziak, and W. Lyskawiski
Poznań University of Technology, Poland

The paper presents the results of the experiment consisting in determination of the influence of the magnetic field on deformations of the stator and the rotor of the DC motor. The numerical model of the motor for the frameless DC machine of the G series has been elaborated. Real material properties and the phenomenon of the magnetic circuit saturation have been taken into consideration. The ...

3D FEM-analysis of a Micromachined Wind Sensor Based on a Self-heated Thermistor Array

[1]Institute for Integrated Sensor Systems, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Wiener Neustadt, Austria
[2]Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria

We present COMSOL-based analyses and design optimizations of a micromachined wind sensor. The sensor relies on eight germanium thermistors embedded in a thin silicon nitride membrane, where two orthogonally arranged ensembles, each consisting of four thermistors, are connected to form a double Wheatstone-bridge. In operation, each bridge is supplied by a constant current and the self-heating of ...

Numerical Experiments for Thermally-induced Bending of Nematic Elastomers with Hybrid Alignment

L. Teresi[1], and A. DeSimone[2]
[1]LaMS - Modeling & Simulation Lab, University Roma Tre, Roma, Italy
[2]SISSA - International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy

We deal with Liquid Crystal Elastomers (LCEs) having hybrid alignment (HNEs), that is, fabricated with a given non-homogeneous nematic orientation. For such a materials, permanent distortions induced by deswelling can be compensated by those resulting from cooling below the transition temperature, thus yielding the possibility of producing temperature-driven actuators. Here, we simulate the ...

Smoothing the Path to Simulation-Led Device Design

B. Pryor, and R. Pryor
Pryor Knowledge Systems
Bloomfield Hills, MI

Using modeling software such as COMSOL Multiphysics during the design phase, an approach called “simulation-led design”, allows ideas to be both inspired and validated by the use of simulations. Then, using simulations after the product is designed can shorten the prototype-testing portion of the development process and reduce its cost. This paper provides specifics on the nature of the ...

Designing Magnetic Coils from the Inside Out

C. Crawford, and D. Wagner
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY

Traditionally the design cycle for magnetic fields involves guessing at a reasonable conductor and magnetic material configuration, using finite element analysis (FEA) software to calculate the resulting field, modifying the configuration, and iterating to produce the desired results. We take the opposite approach of specifying the required magnetic field, imposing it as a boundary condition on ...

A High-Efficiency Micro-Channel Regenerative Heat Exchanger for Fluid Processing

O. Yildirim, and Z. Guo
Intellectual Ventures Laboratories
Bellevue, WA

Regenerative heat exchangers (RHX) find widespread applications in liquid food or pharmaceutical processing as well as in reaction engineering. Whereas \"large\" RHX systems have been in use for a long time, their smaller micro-channel counterparts are a more recent area of interest. Here, we describe the design and development of a novel micro-channel counter-current regenerative heat ...
