Argon plasma behavior in gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is directly linked to the weld quality. Indeed, the arc is the heat source which drives the weld shape. Solution of an induction-diffusion equation under axial symmetry conditions has been developped using thermal conduction and convection module of FEMLAB 3.1©. We predict current distribution in electric arc, induced magnetic field ...

We use GPS measurements and Finite Element analysis to investigate strain accumulation in the interaction between active fronts of the Southern Alps and Dinarides at the northern edge of the Adriatic micro-plate. We develop a three dimensional model of the area taking into account the regional topography, approximating the crust as an elasto-plastic medium and reproducing as close as possible the ...

The emergence of electromagnetic metamaterials has given rise to a variety of fascinating applications, including the perfect lens and the optical cloaking device. For a long time the study of the properties of metamaterials was limited to normal incidence only. However, it is extremely important to know the behavior of metamaterials especially in the area of imaging. In this paper, we use COMSOL ...

A discharge of hydraulic oil is assumed from an hydroelectric power station. The oil is let out through the outlet from the turbines and is spread into the river. The flow of water, or more correctly, the solution of water and oil, is calculated by Navier-Stoke equation for incompressible fluids. The concentration of oil is calculated by a mass-balance equation. It is assumed that oil is absorbed ...

High intensity discharge lamps can experience flickering and even destruction, when operated at high frequency alternating current. The cause of these problems has been identified as acoustic resonances inside the lamp’s are tube. Here, a finite element approach for the calculation of the acoustic response function is described. The developed model does not include the plasma dynamics.

The method to derive upscaled expressions for the dispersion coefficients for reactive flow in a porous medium uses a periodic unit cell (PUC), which consists for instance of a spherical grain in a cube, but nothing prohibits defining more complex PUC's. Homogenization leads to a coupled system of equations where the flow is described by Stokes equation and the concentration fluctuation is ...

This presentation is concerned with the modelling of deformable non-Newtonian Flow using COMSOL Multiphysics. This general modelling approach has more concrete applications such as paper coating in a metering size press, meniscus location by PIDS to mention a few.

Advances in visualization and discretization of pore structures by means of Computed Tomography, and rapidly increasing computational capabilities, allow numerical modeling of pore-scale fluid flow based on the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations rather than using a macroscopic approach based on Darcy’s law. To test the capabilities of the COMSOL Multiphysics modeling platform, we ...
Inlay Fixed Partial Denture Framework 3-D Structural Integrity Validation Using COMSOL Multiphysics®
Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation, University of Vaasa, Vaasa, Finland
Manual manufacturing of inlay fixed partial denture frameworks by metal casting can take hours of dental practitioners work time. This paper introduces 3-D simulations of premanufactured inlay fixed partial denture framework assembled from laser cut sheet metal parts. The study gives a good estimation of how well the frameworks can withstand strong human occlusion forces and masticatory cycle. ...
