Galvanic Corrosion of a Magnesium Alloy in Contact with Steel

Magnesium alloys are attractive alternatives as lightweight materials in various fields of engineering. Magnesium is however relatively non-noble and may suffer considerable galvanic corrosion when being used in conjunction with other metals, for instance when mounting an Mg alloy component using steel fasteners. This model example simulates a galvanic corrosion couple consisting of a magnesium ...

Thermal Performances of Windows

During the design of a building, environmental issues have gained considerable influence in the entire project. One of the first concerns is to improve thermal performances. In this process, simulation software are key tools to model thermal losses and performances in the building. The international standard ISO 10077-2:2012 deals with thermal performance of windows, doors and shutters. It ...

Inflation of a Spherical Rubber Balloon - Membrane Version

The purpose of this model is to illustrate how the Membrane interface can be used to model thin hyperelastic structures. The example is identical to the Model Library model 'Inflation of a spherical rubber balloon', except that the Membrane interface is used instead of the Solid Mechanics interface.

Lemaitre-Chaboche Viscoplastic Model

Most metals and alloys undergo viscoplastic deformation at high temperatures. In case of cyclic loading, a constitutive law with both isotropic and kinematic hardening is necessary to describe effects such as ratcheting, cyclic softening/hardening, and stress relaxation. The Lemaitre-Chaboche viscoplastic model combines isotropic hardening with nonlinear kinematic hardening to model these ...

Time-to-Frequency Fast Fourier Transform of a Coaxial Low-Pass Filter

A very wide band coaxial low-pass filter is designed using a 2D axisymmetric model. To address the wide band frequency response with a fine frequency resolution, the model is built with a transient physics interface first. Then, S-parameters are calculated using a time-to-frequency Fourier transform. To achieve a low-pass frequency response, an air-filled coaxial cable is tuned with five ...

Gecko Foot

In nature, geckos use dry adhesion forces to climb walls. They have inspired researchers to develop synthetic gecko foot hairs to be used in, for example, robot applications. This model contains the nano/micro hierarchy of a synthetic gecko foot hair, where cantilever beams both in nano and micro scales describe the seta and spatula parts of one spatula stalk attached to a gecko foot. The ...

Stress Relaxation of a Viscoelastic Tube

This model studies the temperature effects on the viscoelastic stress relaxation in a long thick-walled cylinder. In particular, decay of the stresses under the influence of the temperature field during a period of two hours is studied. A four-term generalized Maxwell model represents the material.

Antenna Decoupling Using An Electromagnetic Band Gap Meta-Material

An Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure can be used to increase the isolation between antennas close to each other. The decoupling effect is not only a function of frequency but also polarization and coupling-plane configuration. When designing an EBG structure, one needs to make sure to not apply an incorrect frequency and polarization, since this would increase the coupling between ...

Energy Conservation with Thermoviscous Acoustics

This small tutorial model studies energy conservation in a small conceptual test setup. The model has an inlet and outlet and a Helmholtz resonator with a very narrow neck. The acoustics in the narrow neck are modeled with Thermoviscous Acoustic for a detailed analysis of the thermal and viscous losses. In order to study and verify energy conservation, the model compares the total dissipated ...

Differential Gear Mechanism

This model simulates the mechanism of a differential gear used in cars and other wheeled vehicles. A differential allows the outer drive wheel to rotate faster than the inner drive wheel during a turn. This is necessary when a vehicle turns in order to allow the wheel that is traveling along the outside of the turning curve to roll faster and to cover greater distance than the wheel on the ...
