Parameter Estimation for Nonideal Reactor Models

Real reactors can be modeled as combinations of ideal reactors. In this example the so-called "Dead zone model" is utilized. Two ideal CSTRs with interchange are set up to model the real reactor. One CSTR represents the highly agitated region and the other the less agitated region. For ... Read More

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Low-Pass Filter

One way to design a filter is to use the element values of well-known filter prototypes, such as maximally flat or equal-ripple low-pass filters. It is easier to fabricate a distributed element filter on a microwave substrate than a lumped element filter, since it is cumbersome to find ... Read More

HAMSTAD Benchmark 2: Moisture Transport in a homogeneous wall

This case shows how to simulate moisture transport in a homogeneous wall under isothermal conditions. With this assumption, an analytical solution can be calculated. The homogeneous layer is initialized in moisture balance. At the beginning of the simulation, the relative humidity of ... Read More

Pressure Reciprocity Calibration Coupler with Detailed Moist Air Material Properties

When high-fidelity measurement microphones are calibrated, a pressure reciprocity calibration method is used. During calibration, two microphones are connected at each end of a closed cylindrical cavity. For the calibration procedure, it is important to understand the acoustic field ... Read More

Thin Layer Chronoamperometry

The common electroanalytical method of exhaustive amperometric detection in a microscopic thin layer is modelled as a 1D-symmetric diffusion problem. The simulated result agrees with the analytical Cottrell equation at short times, and deviates as expected at long times when the ... Read More

Quasi-2D Turbomolecular Pump

The Monte Carlo simulation of flow in a turbomolecular pump can be greatly simplified if the mean radius of the blades is much greater than the spacing between them. Under these conditions, the rotating blades of the pump can be approximated as an infinite row of blades having only ... Read More

Uniform Layer Waveguide

Whenever dimensions in waveguides become small compared to the viscous and thermal boundary layers it is necessary to model acoustics using thermoacoustics. In the present model the thermoacoustic wave field in a shallow uniform waveguide is modeled and compared to an analytical solution. Read More

Instability of a Space Arc Frame

This model illustrates the instability of a space arc frame under concentrated vertical loading. The Beam interface is utilized. Two different approaches are used: A full incremental nonlinear analysis, where a small lateral load is applied to break the symmetry of the structure A ... Read More

Linear Magnetic Gear

In this model, a linear magnetic gear system with a gear ratio of 11:4 is modeled. The liner magnetic gear is assumed to be infinitely long with the modular structure that is repeating on either side. Only a single modular section is modeled by using the customized linear periodic ... Read More

Cathodic Protection with Anode Deformation

This tutorial models the cathodic protection of an oil rig structure during a time period of 15 years. As a result of the consumption of the sacrificial anodes, the protective capabilities system are reduced over time. The anode shape change in the model is defined by using the Level ... Read More
