We study the gravity-driven film flow of a Newtonian liquid down an inclined plane. Many applications such as heat- and mass exchangers and evaporators or film coaters require undulated or rippled bottom topographies. In these cases, the interplay of gravity, surface tension and inertia leads to a response of the interface which furthermore strongly depends on the shape of the bottom topography. ...

The model for study of thermal mechanical behavior of multilayer thin films was developed. The stress-strain analysis was carried out in combination with thermal effects. The 2D thinfilm model has been solved by FEMLAB 3.1i. The middle layer was thermally loaded with Ohmic heating and other layer’s thicknesses were varied in time. All material data like elastic coefficients, thermal ...

Self-reheating tins are composed of two parts; one of them contains a ready-to-eat preserved product, the other one, the components of an exothermic process which, once started, brings the edible product to the temperature at which it is usually eaten. Some existing data on the temperatures in the heating and heated parts during the process have been used to validate the results obtained by ...

High cost and complexity of technological equipment for manufacturing in aeronautical engineering, necessity of fast reequipment for creation of new modifications of flight vehicles make the use of software for modeling prior to design activities very topical. Manufacturing of a polymeric composite spar of the helicopter main rotor blade is an example of technology, where it is necessary to ...

The subject of our study belongs to the large area of studies about the analyze and the prediction of indoor air quality. One of the actual weaknesses for the appreciations of air indoor quality is the lack off knowledge about the interactions between the pollutants and the materials (emission off VOC, adsorption). Knowing the behavior of construction materials we can figure out the possibility ...

Infrared photonic detectors operating in the mid infrared region find applications in pollution monitoring, high-speed infrared imaging systems and free space telecommunications. There is a need for new uncooled high performance detector systems and antimonide-based (Sb-based) semiconductor quantum structures could be an alternative of the well-established technologies. The main objective of ...
Gyros AB is developing biomedical laboratories in CD-discs, Gyrolab®. In a lot of applications mixers are needed and for some special applications liquid volumes of a few microlitres are to be handled. The mixing of a few microlitres liquids was studied numerically with FEMLAB and experimentally with colored and uncolored water. Thanks to this combination, the main mixing process was ...

The fatigue is the most important criterion for the securities parts (brake system for example). The increasing use of shaped cast aluminium in the security automotive parts has focused interest on the fatigue of theses alloys. The specific foundry software use empirical laws that do not fit with the reality, above all concerning the aluminium alloys. We proposed a new physical parsimonious ...

The analysis of the mechanical properties of bi-continuous structures has been problematic due to the complex geometry that describes these materials. In this study a method which identifies and quantifies the geometrical elements within the structure will be presented. A sample is in-situ compressed and its deformation is compared with the results of a FEMLAB finite element model. Initially, ...
