Frequency Selective Surface, Periodic Complementary Split Ring Resonator

Frequency selective surfaces (FSS) are periodic structures with a bandpass or a bandstop frequency response. This model shows that only signals around the center frequency can pass through the periodic complimentary split ring resonator layer.

Solar Panel in Periodic Flow

The coupling of fluid flow and structural mechanics is a challenging problem for several reasons. The fluid flow problem usually requires a specific kind of mesh that is not appropriate for structural mechanics. Additionally, one may want to include geometric features in the structural model that are not significant for the fluid flow model. This model computes the structural stresses and ...

Inkjet Nozzle - Level Set Method

Although initially invented to be used in printers, inkjets have been adopted for other application areas, such as within the life sciences and microelectronics. Simulations can be useful to improve the understanding of the fluid flow and to predict the optimal design of an inkjet for a specific application. The purpose of this application is to adapt the shape and operation of an inkjet nozzle ...

Capillary Filling - Phase Field Method

This example studies a narrow vertical cylinder placed on top of a reservoir filled with water. Because of wall adhesion and surface tension at the air/water interface, water rises through the channel. Surface tension and wall adhesive forces are often used to transport fluid through microchannels in MEMS devices or to measure, transport and position small amounts of fluid using micropipettes. ...

RF Coil

RF coils are important in numerous applications ranging from wireless technology to MRI scanning equipment. This introductory tutorial model demonstrates how to find the fundamental resonance frequency of an RF coil as well as how to perform a frequency sweep to extract the coil's Q-factor.

Capacitive Pressure Sensor

A capacitive pressure sensor is simulated. This model shows how to simulate the response of the pressure sensor to an applied pressure, and also how to analyze the effects of packing induced stresses on the sensor performance.

Sonic Crystal

Phononic and sonic crystals have generated rising scientific interest for very diverse technological applications. These crystals are made of periodic distributions of scatterers embedded in a matrix. Under certain conditions, acoustic band gaps can form. These are spectral bands where propagation of waves is forbidden. This model first analyzes as sonic crystal and determines its band ...

Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Network of Blood Vessels

This model refers to a portion of the vascular system of a young child - the upper part of the aorta artery. The blood vessels are embedded in a biological tissue (the cardiac muscle) and, during the flow of blood, pressure is applied to the internal surfaces producing deformation of the vessel walls. The complete analysis consists of two distinct but coupled procedures: a fluid-dynamics ...

Multi-Turn Coil Above an Asymmetric Conductor Plate

This model solves the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) problem 7, “Asymmetrical Conductor with a Hole”—a benchmark problem concerning the calculation of eddy currents and magnetic fields produced when an aluminum conductor is placed asymmetrically above a multi-turn coil carrying a sinusoidally varying current. The simulation results at specified positions in space are compared ...

Loaded Spring - Using Global Equations to Satisfy Constraints

Global equations are a way of adding an additional equation to a model. A global equation can be used to describe a load, constraint, material property, or anything else in the model that has a uniquely definable solution. In this example, a structural mechanics model of a spring is augmented by a global equation which solves for the load to achieve a desired spring displacement.
