[1]IDEAS Research Institute/School of Engineering, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, United Kingdom.
[2]School of Engineering, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, United Kingdom.

One of the most important criteria for evaluating chemical enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes that use polymers is its rheological behaviour which in turn account for other physical effects of adsorption and resistance factors during polymer-rock interactions. However, complete ... Read More

Modeling and Simulation of Membrane Contactor Employed to Strip CO2 from Rich Solvents via COMSOL Multiphysics® new

N. Ghasem[1], M. Al-Marzouqi[1], N. A. Rahim[1]
[1]United Arab Emirates University, Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates

A mathematical model is developed for the stripping of CO2 from rich solvent. The rich solvent (aqueous NaOH) is used in CO2 absorption from natural gas through gas-liquid hollow fiber membrane contactor. The polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) hollow fiber membrane was fabricated via ... Read More

3D Multiphysics Modeling of Bulk High-Temperature Superconductors for Use as Trapped Field Magnets new

M. Ainslie[1], J. Zou[1], D. Hu[1], D. Cardwell[1]
[1]Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

The authors are currently investigating the use of bulk high temperature superconductors as trapped field magnets (TFMs) in order to increase the electrical and magnetic loading of an axial gap, trapped flux-type superconducting electric machine. In electric machines, the use of ... Read More

Modeling the ELENA Electron Cooler with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software new

G. Tranquille[1]
[1]CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

ELENA is a small cooler decelerator ring at CERN which will be built to increase substantially the number of usable antiprotons delivered to experiments for studies with antihydrogen and antiprotonic nuclei. COMSOL Multiphysics® software has been used to completely model the ELENA ... Read More

Modeling an Adsorption Process in a Shell-and-Tube-Heat-Exchanger-Type Adsorber new

G. Salazar Duarte[1], B. Schürer[1], C. Voss[1], D. Bathen[2]
[1]Linde AG, Munich, Germany
[2]Universität Duisburg-Essen, Duisburg, Germany

Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) and Temperature Swing Adsorption (TSA) are commonly used for separation/purification of gas mixtures in industrial processes. The cycle time of industrial TSA processes usually ranges from several hours to days. The reason for this long cycle time is the ... Read More

An Automatic Modeling Approach for Optimized Positioning of an Electrostimulative Implant in the Human Femoral Head new

[1]Department of Orthopaedics, University of Rostock, Rostock, Germany
[2]Institute of General Electrical Engineering, University of Rostock, Rostock, Germany

Introduction Electromagnetic stimulation is a common therapy to support bone healing in cases of avascular necrosis or pseudarthrosis. An electrostimulative screw implant (Asnis III s-series screw in Figure 1) is used to stimulate bone regeneration in the treatment of femoral head ... Read More

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Material Structure Grading in the Direction Normal to the Electrode/Electrolyte Interface Using COMSOL Multiphysics® new

M. Andersson[1], B. Sundén[1]
[1]Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

Fuel cells (FCs) are promising as an energy producing device, which at this stage of development will require extensive analysis and benefit from numerical modeling at different time- and length scales. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to describe an intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel ... Read More

Optimization of Architectured Structures in Building for Harness, Storage, and Release of Energy new

C. Thoumyre[1], P. Lhuissier[1], L. Salvo[1], G. Bienvenu[2], M. Kermarrec[2]
[1]University Grenoble Alpes, SIMaP, Grenoble, France
[2]Hevatech, Ville-la-Grand, France

The problem of storage, and release of thermal energy is an important challenge in various industrial fields. Several systems for thermal energy storage exist like phase change materials (PCM) and thermochemical storage [1]. The first system usually addresses short term storage (day ... Read More

Pore-Level Influence of Contact Angle on Fluid Displacements in Porous Media new

H. Ali Akhlaghi Amiri[1]
[1]University of Stavanger, Stavanger, Norway

Wettability affects two-phase displacements in porous media by determining the microscopic distribution of fluids in pore spaces. The impact of wettability on transport properties at macro-scales has been widely addressed in literature; however a deeper understanding of wettability ... Read More

Acoustic-Structure Interaction Simulation of a Differential Phase Sensor new

J. H. Lee[1]
[1]Department of Mechanical Engineering, American University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE

The idea of application as a hearing device based on a parasitoid fly, Ormia ochracea has been studied extensively recently. This paper addresses another possible application as an underwater directional sensor. In order to study the feasibility of the application, it is necessary to ... Read More
