Modeling of Noise Produced by Offshore Wind Turbines with Different Foundations and Effects on the Marine Environment - new

B. Marmo [1], I. Roberts [1]
[1]Xi Engineering Consultants, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Vibration produced by offshore wind turbines during their normal operation transmits through the tower into the foundation where it interacts with the surrounding water and is released as noise. The noise produced by offshore wind turbines can be detected by fish and marine mammals and may lead to alteration of their behavior. Given that noise is emitted at the interface between the foundation ...

[1]Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Institute of Resource Ecology, Research Site Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany

Our GeoPET camera is explicitly dedicated for and well capable of 4D monitoring of solute transport in dense geological material, c = c(x,y,z,t) [1-4]. We apply COMSOL Multiphysics® for reproducing our experiments and extracting parameter sets for our 4D problems [5-6]. By aligning simulated results of anisotropic diffusion in clay to our observations we are able to clearly differentiate and ...

Pumping liquids at small scales is challenging because of the principle of reversibility: in a viscous regime, the flow streamlines through a fixed geometry are the same regardless of flow direction. Recently we developed a class of microfluidic pump designs based on tilted flexible structures that combines the concepts of cilia (flexible elastic elements) and rectifiers (e.g., Tesla pump). We ...

Temperature and Acceleration Sensitivities of a Dual Cavity Fabry-Perot Interferometer - new

[1]R. K. Banyal
Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India[1]

The numerical study of temperature and acceleration sensitivities of a dual cavity Fabry-Perot (FP) interferometer is carried out using finite element method. The optical cavities are formed by machining two side-by-side circular bore of 12 mm each on a monolithic block of low expansion material. One cavity will be used to generate broadband channel spectra for accurate wavelength calibration of ...

3D Simulation Of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Production In A Packed Membrane Reactor

B. Sajjadi [1]
[1] University of Malaya, Malaysia

The current work is aimed to simulate the production of high quality fatty acid methyl ester (biodiesel) production from palm oil in a micro porous ceramic membrane reactor. The TiO2/Al2O3 ceramic membrane was used as the separator and catalytic bed. It was packed with potassium hydroxide catalyst supported on palm shell activated carbon. The investigation of component distribution within the ...

2차원 및 3차원 맨틀 플룸의 벤치마크

Y. Kim, C. Lee [1]

최근의 수치모델링 연구들은 맨틀 플룸(mantle plume)이 배호(back-arc)지역의 분지 및 산맥(basin and range)과 유사한 지구조를 형성시키는 성인임을 제시하였다. 섭입 슬랩 후퇴(slab roll-back) 현상에 의해 지각에 가해지는 인장력과 지각 아래로부터 상승하는 뜨거운 맨틀 플룸으로 인한 지각 강도 감소가 더해져 배호 지역에 분지를 형성시킨다는 것이다. 이처럼 분지 형성 작용에 있어 맨틀 플룸의 역할이 중요해짐에 따라, 수치모델링의 필요성이 커지고 있기 때문에 초기 연구로써 우리는 2차원 및 3차원의 맨틀 플룸 수치모델링을 ...

[2] GE Global Research, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

The effects of electric fields on combustion flames have been studied by using several types of experimental techniques as well as few numerical methods. The flame is influenced by the electric field mainly due to the charges present as a result of chemical reactions that take place in the flame. From earlier experiments it was established that the electrical power required to do so is very less ...

Thin Membrane Modelling for the Electrical Stimulation of Auditory Nerve

Modeling of 2-5 μm thin membranes into a cochlea with a width of 2 cm is computationally. The paper is focused on two approximative methods used to overcome this problem and in addition a simple model challenging of a plate capacitor with a thin membrane of different thickness in-between is presented. The results of simulations with both thin layer approximation methods are compared with ...
