Scraping Non-Newtonian Power-Law Paint

C. R. Meyer [1], J. R. Rice [1],
[1] Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA

A similarity solution to Taylor's paint scraper problem for the flow of a non-Newtonian power-law fluid is presented. A shooting method numerical solution agrees with the results found for Newtonian fluids and is able to capture both shear-thinning and shear-thickening fluids. ... Read More

Beam Structure As an Acoustic Wave Sensor: A Study of the Effect of Sensor Design on Its Sensitivity to Noise

F. Akasheh[1], A. Biddle[1], W.S. Shepard Jr.[2], and B.B.B. Zhang[2]
[1]Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, AL, USA
[2]University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL, USA

The detection and identification of the location of a sound source is commonly done using arrays of microphones. A recent new alternative approach has been proposed which involves the use of continuous structures, such as beams or plates, as acoustic wave sensors. The sound wave ... Read More

The Simulation of Flow and Reduction of NO in a Heterogeneous Reactor.

O. Śliczniuk [1], B. Olejnik [1],
[1] Wrocław University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Chemical Engineering, Wrocław, Poland

Nitrogen oxides are one of the more dangerous ingredients contaminating the atmosphere. They are considered to be almost ten times more harmful than carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide several times. A whole range of photochemical reactions involving nitrogen oxides are responsible for ... Read More

Re-design impressed current cathodic protection for an offshore platform with biofouling in seawater new

王巍 [1],
[1] 中国海洋大学

The re-design of the offshore platform in service for impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) could remarkably solve the corrosion problems of potentially catastrophic environmental and financial consequences. A finite element model (FEM) of the offshore platform with biofouling is ... Read More

Analysis Of The Design Criteria For Ancient Greek And Roman Catapults

K.M. Paasch
Center for Product Development, Mads Clausen Institute, South Danish University, Denmark

This paper will give a short overview of use of COMSOL Multiphysics for analyzing ancient Greek and Roman catapults with the main focus on the energy storing torsion springs. Catapults have been known and used in the Greek and Roman world from around 399 BC and a fully standardized ... Read More

Demonstration of Polymer Microring Resonator for Optical Biosensor using COMSOL

Mohd Haziq M.S.[1]
Mohd Hazimimin Mohd Salleh[2]

[1]Department of Information Systems, Kulliyyah of Information and Communication Technology, International Islamic University Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

[2]Department of Physics, Kulliyyah of Science, International Islamic University Malaysia, Pahang, Malaysia

In this paper, we use a COMSOL Multiphysics® model to demonstrate the potential use of polymer microring resonator structures for optical biosensing applications. When the refractive index of the area surrounding the microring resonator changes, there is a shift in the resonance ... Read More

Numerical Investigation of Power Deposition and Transport Phenomena in Helicon Plasma Sources

M. Magarotto [1], F. J. Bosi [1], P. de Carlo [1], M. Manente [1], F. Trezzolani [1], D. Pavarin [1], P. Alotto [2], D. Melazzi [1],
[1] CISAS "G.Colombo", University of Padova, Padova, Italy
[2] Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Padova, Padova, Italy

Standard approaches to reproduce the coupling of wave propagation and plasma transport inside a helicon plasma source rely on electromagnetic simulations coupled to either kinetic or particle-in-cell strategies to reproduce the plasma response. If the plasma density reach values higher ... Read More
