We present a software tool for simulations of subsurface flow and solute transport in combination with comprehensive intra-phase and inter-phase geochemistry. The software uses PHREEQC as a reaction engine to COMSOL Multiphysics®. The coupling with PHREEQC gives major advantages over COMSOL’s built-in reaction capabilities, i.e., the soil solution is speciated from its element composition ...

Although we know the physics inside a media where the sound waves propagate, determination of material\'s or structure\'s sound reduction index is not an easy task. The lack of good engineering solutions proves the point. The only reliable way to calculate the sound reduction index is to carry out an experiment.Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a mathematical model that can ...

The purpose of this paper is to present a numerical modeling of plasma phenomena in beryllium emissions using COMSOL Multiphysics software. The Beryllium films were deposited on mirror polished fine grain graphite substrates using the Thermionic Vacuum Arc (TVA) technology available at NILPRP – Magurele, Romania. The developed system for thin film deposition using thermionic vacuum arc (TVA) ...

This paper deals with the design of a viable thermal management solution using La5Ca9Cu24O41 layers for heat channeling. The simulations are carried out with the finite element method using COMSOL Multiphysics Heat Transfer Module. COMSOL 4.2 was used to model and optimize silicon devices. Malfunctioning elements on silicon devices are sometimes converted into hotspots resulting in the ...

We consider a 3D boundary value problem arising in electrostatics. The potential is stimulated by current sources placed on a cross-section S of the domain. In many applications it is sufficient to know the potential in S. So, one is interested in an appropriate 2D model taking into account that the solution depends on the dimension of the domain. The idea is to find a corresponding 2D ...

The present work aims to develop a blood pressure sensor using MEMS/NEMS technology. A normal blood pressure detector is used externally, but this work mainly aims for designing an implantable nanotube based sensor for continuous monitoring of blood pressure. The use of COMSOL Multiphysics 4.1 acts as a good platform to develop a nano tube based sensor design by using the MEMS module. The ...
