动脉瘤破裂是引起蛛网膜下腔出血的一种主要原因。结合 COMSOL Multiphysics® 灵活的几何建模特性以及强大的流体仿真求解能力,本文分别对两组不同大小关系的 MCA 动脉瘤理论模型进行了仿真建模分析。通过模拟分析,获得了动脉瘤球囊体长度和宽度与动脉瘤基底宽度不同比例条件下的动脉瘤速度、压力、壁面切应力(WSS)等参数的变化规律,分析了几何形态与动力学参数之间的关系。模拟结果显示:1、宽颈动脉瘤,瘤体内部旋流强度较之窄颈动脉瘤更强,中心区流速更低,更有利于形成血栓而且顶点处压力更大,更易破裂。2、增大动脉瘤宽度与基底直径的比值,顶点处 WSS 呈非线性增长,但最大值低于 WSS 安全范围的下限值,破裂危险性依然很高;3、动脉瘤宽度与基底直径不同比例下的最大的 WSS 均是主要集中在动脉瘤与载瘤血管结合处(第一剪应力集中区),对血管壁生物组织力学特性影响严重;WSS ...

Simulation of a Dynamic Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger for Non-Newtonian Fluids

S. Birla [1],
[1] ConAgra Foods, Omaha, NE, USA

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHEs) are commonly used in the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries for heat transfer, crystallization, and other continuous processes. One of the factor posing difficulties to heat transfer is viscosity. Highly viscous fluids tend to generate deep laminar flow, a condition with very poor heat transfer rates and high pressure losses involving a ...

实现微流控粒子分选芯片几何参数预估与高效设计的传递函数拟合法

张岩 [1],
[1] 清华大学精密仪器系,北京,中国

引言: 对于微流控分选芯片而言,分支出口的位置、宽度等几何参数会直接影响到粒子分选精度与回收效率。但是,遗憾的是,对于流道各分支出口位置的高效设计方法却鲜有报道。当前的设计方法主要是对每一种目标粒子直接进行轨迹仿真[1~7]。但这种方法的运算成本巨大,如果粒子分散体系涉及到的粒径种类繁多且流道结构复杂,那么对每种粒径都进行仿真分析将会使得计算量与计算精度之间的矛盾愈加尖锐;而且,每引入一种没有被仿真研究过的粒径,都要对其重新进行仿真运算,运算成本巨大[8~10]。 据此,本文提出了一种结合有限元分析仿真与系统辨识方法的粒子出射位置预测方法:利用少量的几组仿真实验结果即可以对多分散粒子体系进行出射位置的定量预测,大大减小运算量,提高芯片几何设计的效率。具体方案如下: COMSOL Multiphysics® 软件的使用: 首先,进行仿真实验,获得原始拟合数据。仿真分为两部分 ...

I. Neitzel [1], R. Kreczkiuski [1],
[1] FATEB, Telemaco Borba, Paraná, Brasil

A obtenção de polpa celulósica antecede a produção de papel e envolve a separação das fibras da madeira mediante a utilização de energia mecânica, térmica, química ou a combinação desses processos. Esta operação é realizada em um reator, tubular, cilíndrico e vertical (tipicamente 6 m de diâmetro e 50 m de altura), denominado genericamente de digestor. A madeira é alimentada pelo topo na forma ...

Use of COMSOL In Aerodynamic Optimization of the UNLV Solar-Powered Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

L. Dube, W. McElroy, and D. Pepper

University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

We discuss the use of COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4 in the aerodynamic optimization process of the UNLV solarpowered UAV. We also address the use of COMSOL’s Multiphysics ability and how it was used within the scope of the project. In particular we highlight the development of wingtip devices, some of which are non-planar lifting surfaces, and we analyze how these changes affect the airframe ...

Model and Simulation of a Tunable Birefringent Fiber Using Capillaries Filled with Liquid Ethanol

C. Zeringue, and G.T. Moore
Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, NM, USA

Conventional polarization maintaining fiber is constructed using a pair of borosilicate rods on either side of the fiber core. Current manufacturing processes prohibit the construction of fibers with the required accuracy needed for applications requiring precision birefringence. Through the use of COMSOL, this paper describes simulated results of fiber with a mutually orthogonal secondary set ...

Multiphysics Process Simulation of Static Magnetic Fields in High Power Laser Beam Welding of Aluminum

M. Bachmann[1], V. Avilov[1], A. Gumenyuk[1], M. Rethmeier[1]
[1]BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Berlin, Germany

The article deals with the application of the Hartmann effect in high power laser beam welding of aluminum. The movement of liquid metal in a magnetic field causes electric currents which build a Lorentz force that decelerates the original flow. The numerical model calculates the influence of a steady magnetic field on partial penetration keyhole laser beam welding of aluminum. Three-dimensional ...

In a water based electrolytic polishing process, the formation of molecular hydrogen at the cathode is unavoidable and it can contribute to the formation of surface defects at the anode side. This paper presents the work to model and simulate the molecular hydrogen flow inside radio frequency cavity geometries and compares it with the presence, type and relative position of certain defects in ...
