Multiphysical Simulation of Moved Data Cable

M. Raum [1]
[1] Friedrich-Alexander Universität, Erlangen, BY, Germany

In general this thesis is about the effects of mechanical stress on data cables in moved applications. If a data cable is loaded with different kind of forces and used within high frequency applications it is possible, that the geometrical changes may have an impact on the electrical ... Read More

Chemical reaction kinetics identification is an essential and enabling step for reaction engineering designs. This presentation explores the COMSOL platform for performing the kinetics estimation and subsequent reaction engineering of a catalytic reaction with formation of competing ... Read More

Investigation on Quiet Zones Created by Remote Impedance Control

T. Laurence [1], R. Boulandet [1], H. Lissek [1],
[1] LTS2 - Acoustics Group, EPFL, Switzerland

Quiet zones and other sound zones have been a strong topic of research for some time, due to the interest of creating separate sound environments in a same room, in a large open-space office for example. A number of solutions have been proposed over the last years. This paper further ... Read More

Toward Nano-Scale Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy of Single Live Cells by Means of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software

Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling of an Adaptive Material for Sound Absorption

T. G. Zielinski [1], K. C. Opiela [1],
[1] Institute of Fundamental Technological Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland

A concept of an adaptive sound absorbing material is proposed and investigated numerically using the COMSOL Multiphysics® Software suitable for the required advanced dual-scale modelling which involves solution of various problems of physics at the microscopic and macroscopic levels. A ... Read More

Numerical Solution of Nonlinear PDEs Exhibiting Soft Bifurcations

A. Boulbitch [1],
[1] IEE S.A. Luxembourg

This talk communicates a pseudo-dynamic approach to solve nonlinear stationary equations exhibiting soft bifurcations. The procedure consists in passing from the stationary partial differential equation - to an artificially-built pseudo-time dependent one. We construct the latter in ... Read More

Elucidating the Mechanisms of Charge and Temperature Modulated Ionic Transport in Nanochannels

G. Zhang [1], Y. Zhao [1],
[1] Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA

The transport of fluid through nanochannels is of importance in a variety of technological applications, including biological sensing, energy storage and conversion, chemical separation and many others. Synthetic nanofluidic architectures that mimic the gating functions of biological ion ... Read More

Influence of Micro Gaps on the Magnetic Characteristics of FI Relay

L. Strehar [1], D. Janc [1], A. Smrkolj [1], A. Pušnik [1], N. Štrovs [1],
[1] ETI d.o.o., Izlake, Slovenia

Various types of FI-Relays are built in electrical protective residual current devices (RCD). They are all electromechanical assemblies that trip at appearance of residual currents (i.e. fault or earth leakage current) and consequently break main contacts of RCD. FI relays are very ... Read More

COMSOL Multiphysics® Bio-Cellular Tunneling Model

E. Lacatus [1],
[1] Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania

The emerging technologies related to AI and Quantum Computing are shifting the nano-bio-info paradigm, reconsidering the presently assumed bioenergetic processes of the living cells. Thus, a key process as ATPase can be considered through a model governed by quantum field theory (QFT) ... Read More
