摘要： 锂离子电池热失控会对人造成极大的危害，如何避免这些热失控的发生成为了学者们主要的研究课题，为了对其进行研究，必须要从电池内部结构和机理入手去分析，需要从电化学原理到化学反应进行深入细致的分析，需要对锂离子电池的生热机理有全面的认识。采用仿真技术对锂离子电池失控研究，可以极大的减少研究成本，并对失控过程进行有效的预测。 COMSOL Multiphysics 软件的使用： 利用 COMSOL Multiphysics 中的传热模块以及 ODE 模块，建立锂离子电池三维热失控模型，分析其内部发生化学分解的全过程。 结果： 锂离子电池热失控过程中，材料分解反应程链式反应，随着温度的升高，反应速率加快，进而产生更多的热量，导致热量聚集而无法快速释放，最终引发电池的热失控。 结论： 通过控制温度可以有效的防止电池热失控的发生。

This work uses COMSOL to simulate the Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) lamp coupled to the external electrical circuit. The coupled system is modeled to capture the effect of the electrical parasitic elements on the efficiency of the DBD which is more realistic as compared to previous trials which assumed that a perfect voltage source is applied to lamp terminals. The obtained results ...
CFD-based Evaluation of Drag Force on a Sphere Unsteadily Moving Perpendicularly toward a Solid Surface: a Simple Model of a Biological Spring, Vorticella Convallaria

Vorticella convallaria, a sessile peritrich ciliate having a contractile stalk, is regarded as a model biological spring because of its remarkably fast contraction. Because the cell body shrinks to sphere-like shape during contractions, it can be assumed to be a sphere moving in quiescent water, and Vorticella’s contraction force has been evaluated with Stokes’ law. In this study, we ...

Many scientific instruments are based on high vacuum equipment with a gas pressure maintained in the order of 1 Pa or below. The gas flow in the low pressure limit, called the molecular flow regime, is a case of transport with zero viscosity. The ability to solve an integral equation on the boundary with finite elements methods allows us to find the gas densities and flows in the ...

This work describes a way to apply 3D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to the thermal design of power electronic modules using simplified geometry models of the system components. The method here presented can overcome the problem of solving equation systems with a very high number of Degrees Of Freedom (DOF) due to complex geometry of a power module.

This paper report on a study of the hydrodynamics of skimboards and surfboards using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) module in COMSOL. The study analyzes the flow in a thin water layer underneath a skim board in a 2-D Cartesian coordinate. Three different sets of boundary conditions were employed and one of them produced the best agreement with previous findings.

A model for material damping is presented in terms of internal friction and in terms of a variation of stiffness. In the latter case the idea is that the stiffness increases if elastic energy is stored and decreases if elastic energy is released. In case of a single mass spring system “stiffness” refers to the stiffness of the spring; in case of a continues object &ldquo ...

A two-dimensional mathematical model for the absorption and desorption of H2 in LaNi4.8Al0.2 was developed and experimentally validated. The model is composed of an energy balance, a mass balance and a momentum balance. These differential equations are numerically solved by means of the finite element method using the software COMSOL Multiphysics®. From a comparison between theoretical ...
