[1] Fraunhofer Institution for Additive Production Technologies IAPT, Hamburg, Germany

Parametric and topology optimization approaches are widely used techniques for performance improvement of components in terms of various objectives. Especially topology optimization often leads to complex geometries that are difficult or impossible to produce by conventional ... Read More

Free Surface Deformation of the Weld Pool in Orbital Narrow Gap GTA Welding

S. Morville [1], V. Bruyère [2], P. Namy [2],
[1] Technical Center FRAMATOME, Le Creusot, France
[2] SIMTEC, Grenoble, France

Arc current welding is a widespread process in heavy industry for the assembly of metallic components. In order to ensure the good quality of assemblies welds, it is appropriate to master the welding process but also to have a deep understanding of interactions with the weld pool and ... Read More

Transient Simulation of the Removal Process in Plasma Electrolytic Polishing of Stainless Steel

I. Danilov [1], M. Hackert-Oschätzchen [1], I. Schaarschmidt [1], M. Zinecker [1], A. Schubert [1],
[1] Professorship Micromanufacturing Technology, Chemnitz University of Technology, Chemnitz, Germany

Plasma electrolytic polishing (PeP) is an electrochemical method for surface treatment. In detail PeP is a special case of anodic dissolution [1] that unlike electrochemical polishing requires higher voltage and uses environment friendly aqueous solutions of salts. When the process ... Read More

Comprehensive Numerical Modeling of Filamentary RRAM Device

D. Niraula [1], V. Karpov [1],
[1] University of Toledo, Toledo, OH, USA

Resistive random-access memory (RRAM) is a non-volatile memory that operates via resistive switching between the insulating (OFF) and conducting (ON) states, representing the logical ‘0’ and ‘1’ binary states, in response to external bias. Attributes such as high memory density, fast ... Read More

Simulation of CVD Process in a Reactor

A. Kulkarni [1], F. Mumme [1], V. Frettlöh [1],
[1] Gemeinnützige KIMW Forschungs-GmbH, Lüdenscheid, NRW, Germany

Metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) is a well-known process to produce high quality thin films that can protect, ennoble and functionalize metallic tools. To realize a high performance coating on a complex 3D mold surface, knowledge about the material formation from a ... 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

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