In a nuclear reactor, the containment is the last barrier for the release of radioactivity during severe accident conditions. Containment material can be concrete or steel or steel-lined concrete. Steel containments have a high load bearing capacity and a high degree of leak tightness at higher pressures. In case of a severe accident, heat can be removed from the containment by a guide panel, ...

This work aims to determine optimized configuration using COMSOL Multiphysics® for a class of transducers. Two types of capacitive sensors needed for monitoring and control in agriculture are investigated: a rain sensor and a soil humidity sensor. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to test various configurations for both transducers, like the number of teeth in the comb, the depth of the teeth, the ...
Investigation of Transport Phenomena in Nanochannels and its Applications in Energy Conversion using COMSOL Multiphysics
Green Energy and Environment Research Laboratories, Industrial Technology Research Institute, Chutung, Hsinchu, Taiwan
Well‐designed and controlled nanochannels are ideal physical modeling systems to study fluidics in a precise manner. Electrokinetics refers to transport phenomena related to the non‐electroneutral EDL, which is created to neutralize the surface charges produced on surface. Surface charges are produced by the dissociation of surface functional groups. We created a mathematical model of a ...

Greenhouse gases trap heat and make the planet warmer. The main greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are: Carbon dioxide (CO2). The use of fossil fuel is the primary source of CO2 [1, 2]. Accordingly, there is a need for an efficient and novel separation processes for removal of carbon dioxide from gas streams [3, 4]. Here, a flat sheet membrane contactor is used to remove carbon ...

During the basic operation of a lithium-sulfur (Li-S) cell, sulfur molecules are required to undergo a complex mix of electrochemical and chemical reaction processes. To date, almost all modeling of Li-S cell behavior has been undertaken using electroneutral, structurally homogenized, cell scale models accounting for most of these processes. The presented work was undertaken in order to try and ...

The modelling of a ferrite material is conventionally carried out using the Polder permeability tensor which assumes that the ferrite is saturated by a uniform magnetic field. This assumption is often inaccurate due to the constraints imposed by boundary conditions which renders the magnetic field non-uniform. This work proposes to overcome this by determining the magnetic field through a ...
将结构健康监测（SHM）应用于机器结构故障检测是近些年发展的新方法，其优点是可以在线监控结构的“健康”状况。本文提出并研究了一种内嵌微管的高效结构健康监测（e-SHM）系统。结合快速成型技术，将微管嵌入结构内部，当对微管施加一定压力（真空或过压）时，闭合微管中的压力变化将变得极其敏感。当结构裂纹扩展到微管时，该处因压差瞬间产生压力变化，进而通过微管传播，最终信号被设置的压力传感器接收。通过实时监测微管的压力变化，便可实现结构裂纹的实时检测。本文的主要工作包括两个方面：（1）压力泄漏与负压波传播模型的设计与仿真。基于负压波的 e-SHM 系统齿轮的损伤监测的理论推导，包括负压波的产生原理和负压波在微管中的传播过程。建立了直管泄漏的负压波仿真模型，并在 MATLAB 环境下编程实现。基于传感压力二维曲线图分析了仿真结果的识别精度等级，验证了基于负压波的 e-SHM 系统的损伤监测的可行性。 ...

Adequate cooling of beverages is a major issue in planning of several types of events, e.g. poster sessions at conferences. One crucial factor is the time needed to cool beverages from its initial temperature to the desired drinking temperature. We present a way to determine a close approximation for the cooling behavior of three types of commonly used beverage containers using COMSOL ...
