Simulation of Adsorption Mechanisms of Methane and Carbon Dioxide in Shale Matrix

J. G. Moreira [1], A. L. Manriquez [1],
[1] Texas A&M University - Kingsville, Kingsville, TX, USA

The aim of this research is to contribute with the development of Carbon Capture and Storage techniques by studying carbon dioxide (CO2) adsorption mechanisms in shale reservoirs. Gas desorption is considered a major gas production mechanism and has a relevant role in shale gas ... Read More

Design and Simulation of a MEMS-Based Ultrasonic Transducer for Viscosity Sensing Applications

Rahul Goyal [1], Divya Mohan Yadav [1],
[1] Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Technologies based on micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) present advantages for rheological applications as they enable the fabrication of smaller sensors with faster response times. In this work we propose fabrication parameters and simulation of a MEMS viscometer. This research ... Read More

Acoustic Modeling of a “Minute Repeater”

S. Charron [1],
[1] Intermezzi ingénierie acoustique, Paris, France

The project was ordered by a Swiss watchmaker. The aim was to modelize and optimize the acoustic of a minute repeater on one of the high range item made by the watchmaker. Therefore we based our work on a simplified geometry made by Creo. The mesh model includes the gongs, the bottom ... Read More

Advanced Loudspeaker Calculator – an Example of COMSOL® Apps Utilization

F. Malbos [1], M.K. Bogdanski [2], M. Strauss [2],
[1] Harman France, VPDT, Paris, France
[2] Harman International, VPDT, Straubing,Germany

Developing a new loudspeaker design requires not only knowledge and experience in the field, but also an access to verified and efficient tools. HARMAN’s Virtual Product Development (VPD) team has developed a Comsol Application to serve at the early stages of the design process. The app, ... Read More

Geologic Carbon Storage: Implications of Two-Phase Flow on Injection-Induced Stress on Faults

S. Prasun [1], S. Kim [2], S. A. Hosseini [3],
[1] Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA
[2] Department of Civil Engineering University of Nebraska - Lincoln, Omaha, NE, USA
[3] Bureau of Economic Geology, University of Texas - Austin, Austin, TX, USA

Geologic carbon storage that involves injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) into a subsurface sequestration site provides the vital approach for reducing CO2 emissions into atmosphere and thus addressing climate change issue. One challenge associated with CO2 geologic storage is that pore ... Read More

Study of Bending Losses in Optical Fibers using COMSOL Multiphysics®

Ashitosh Velamuri [1], Krupal Patel [2], Ishan Sharma [2], Shakti Gupta [2], Pradeep Kumar Krishnamurthy [1],
[1] Center for Lasers and Photonics, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India
[2] Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India

In FTTH, optical fibers are frequently bent at the corners of the walls causing the propagating light in the fiber to radiate away which results in transmission losses and limits reach of the fiber network. A large number of studies have been reported in the literature to compute bend ... Read More

Magnetic Control of Deformation of a Ferrofluid Droplet in Simple Shear Flow

C. Wang [1], M. R. Hassan [1],
[1] Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO, USA

This study investigates the effect of uniform magnetic field on the deformation of a ferrofluid droplet in a two dimensional (2D) simple shear flow by means of numerical simulation. The magnetic field is applied in a perpendicular direction to the flow direction. A numerical scheme ... Read More
