C. Mallwitz [1], L. Fromme [1], B. Sielhorst [2],
[1] University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics, Bielefeld, Germany
[2] Westfalia-Automotive GmbH, Rheda-Wiedenbrück, Germany

Most technical systems become smart over time, therefore those systems will have improved safety and comfort functions. An example is a new development by Westfalia-Automotive. A new generation of smart tow bars, equipped with a sensor system, including distance sensors, is able to ... Read More

The Simulation of Flow and Reduction of NO in a Heterogeneous Reactor.

O. Śliczniuk [1], B. Olejnik [1],
[1] Wrocław University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Chemical Engineering, Wrocław, Poland

Nitrogen oxides are one of the more dangerous ingredients contaminating the atmosphere. They are considered to be almost ten times more harmful than carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide several times. A whole range of photochemical reactions involving nitrogen oxides are responsible for ... Read More

Effect of Pretreatments on Throwing Power of Sacrificial Metallic Coatings

J. S. Lee [1],
[1] Naval Research Laboratory, Stennis Space Center, MS, USA

Sacrificial metallic coatings (e.g. Mg-Rich Primer [MgRP]) have been evaluated for protection of aircraft aluminum alloy AA2024-T351 in marine immersion and atmospheric conditions. MgRP is designed to create a galvanic couple between the Al substratum and the Mg pigment in the primer. ... Read More

Thermo-mechanical Modeling of Pu-238 Production Target at HFIR

C.J. Hurt [1], J.D. Freels [2],
[1] University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA
[2] Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, USA

The production model in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software makes use of the most up-to-date PIE data, material property inputs, and modeling methodology. The fully coupled thermo-mechanical equations are solved over the entire domain, significantly increasing the degrees of freedom ... Read More

Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® Software for Physics Laboratory Exercises

H. van Halewijn [1],
[1] Fontys Hogeschool, Applied Physics, Eindhoven, Netherlands

COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to simulate thermal flow experiments at out University for Applied Physics. Students have to measure thermal flow problems and verify the measurements with detailed simulations. The desired accuracy is 5% or less. The presentation will cover 3 laboratory ... Read More

Numerical Investigation of Power Deposition and Transport Phenomena in Helicon Plasma Sources

M. Magarotto [1], F. J. Bosi [1], P. de Carlo [1], M. Manente [1], F. Trezzolani [1], D. Pavarin [1], P. Alotto [2], D. Melazzi [1],
[1] CISAS "G.Colombo", University of Padova, Padova, Italy
[2] Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Padova, Padova, Italy

Standard approaches to reproduce the coupling of wave propagation and plasma transport inside a helicon plasma source rely on electromagnetic simulations coupled to either kinetic or particle-in-cell strategies to reproduce the plasma response. If the plasma density reach values higher ... Read More
