An Improved Model for High Temperature Inductive Heating

S. A. Halvorsen, and N. Kleinknecht
Teknova AS
Kristiansand, Norway

An axially symmetric multiphysics model for industrial induction furnaces has successfully been converted from COMSOL Multiphysics version 3.5a to version 4.2. The model combines computation of magnetic fields, heat transfer and thermal stresses. The inner part of the furnace is described by a few discrete state variables. While the current in the induction coil is input in COMSOL, the model ...

[1]ME Department, University of Nevada Reno, Reno, NV
[2]University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia

Modeling electromechanical actuation of ionic polymer-metal composite (IPMC) material is considered in this work. Ionic current in the polymer is described with the Poisson-Nernst-Planck system of equations. Calculated ionic concentration is related to the deformation of the material. To include the effect of the electrodes, the ionic current and the electric current in the electrode domains is ...

The High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is an 85 MW, light-water moderated, research reactor that operates at low temperature and high pressure. The HFIR is presently scheduled to convert from a high enriched uranium fuel (HEU) to a low enriched uranium fuel (LEU) in 2019. Due to cost constraints, not all experiments will be repeated for the LEU fuel ...

Accurate Parameters Extraction of Multiconductor Transmission Lines in Multilayer Dielectric Media

S. Musa[1], M. Sadiku[1], and O. Momoh[2]
[1]Roy G. Perry College of Engineering, Prairie View A&M University, Prairie View, TX
[2]Indiana University-Purdue University

Development of very high speed integrated circuits is currently of great interest for today\'s technologies. This paper presents the quasi-TEM approach for the accurate parameters extraction of multiconductor transmission lines interconnect in single, two, and three-layered dielectric regions using the finite element method (FEM). We illustrate that FEM is accurate and effective for modeling ...

High Field Magnetic Diffusion into Nonlinear Ferrimagnetic Materials

[1]Center for Pulsed Power and Power Electronics, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX
[2]Dept. of Mathematics, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX

Ferrimagnetic based, coaxial nonlinear transmission lines (NLTLs) provide a means to generate sub-nanosecond risetime pulses (from nano-second input pulses) or megawatt level high power microwave oscillations, depending on the geometry, material, and external bias fields. This investigation uses the commercially available, finite element solver COMSOL to provide insight into pulse behavior. ...

Modeling of Galvanic Interactions between AA5083 and Steel under Atmospheric Condition

D. Mizuno, Y. Shi, and R. Kelly
University of Virginia
Charlottesville, VA

Aluminum alloys 5000 series are widely used within the cabins of ships. These aluminum alloys are often joined via steel bolts. There is thus a concern that galvanic interactions will exacerbate corrosion of the aluminum alloys. In this study, a model of the galvanic corrosion between aluminum alloy AA5083 and steel under atmospheric conditions was built. The Nernst-Plank equation and the ...

Albany, NY

Laser thermal treatment (LTT) systems have applications in IC fabrication for improving low-k dielectrics properties, polymer curing and resist processing. This contribution deals with a transient model of fast scanning and pulsing laser multi-beam system used in semiconductor processing. General Heat Transfer application mode formulation with multi-scale modelling approaches are employed. ...

Electrophoresis and Electroosmosis in the Intracellular Transport of Macromolecules

V. Andreev
University of Miami
Miami, FL

Electric fields are present in biological systems at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Electroosmotic flow results from the action of electric field on the electrical double layer, formed at the fluid/solid or fluid/membrane interface and characterized by its zeta-potential. For the physiological value of zeta-potential (50 mV) and a single charged protein of average size, electroosmotic ...

Numerical Study of the Scattering of a Short-Pulse Plane Wave by a Buried Sphere in a Lossy Medium

The scattering by a buried sphere in the frequency domain with the use of the Finite Element Method (FEM) implemented by COMSOL Multiphysics, is analyzed. A short-pulse is used as an excitation with the spectrum spanning from 50 MHz to 1 GHz. In order to validate our results, a comparison with data available in the literature is presented, in the simple case of a perfectly-conducting (PEC) ...
