Novel class of artificial optical antennas are of great interest in biosensing applications of nanoplasmonics due to their unique and tunable spectral properties. Silver colloid spheres covered with L-cysteine were studied experimentally by spectroscopy and TEM and numerically by a COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation. Experimental studies revealed that the Ag NP-Cys core-shell conjugates prefer to ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to simulate thermal flow experiments at out University for Applied Physics. Students have to measure thermal flow problems and verify the measurements with detailed simulations. The desired accuracy is 5% or less. The presentation will cover 3 laboratory experiments: cooling of an Aluminum rod by natural convection, time dependent heat flow into a container with sand ...

Continuous dynamic models, e.g. COMSOL based simulations, play – besides statistical or iterative methods – a mayor role in theoretical ecology; in forecasting and management, but also in systems analysis. Ecological issues generally comprise highly interacting agents and/or unknown side effects. Here we show how combining direct simulation with COMSOL with simple optimization tools ...

As the importance of nanoparticles is growing more and more, controlling and understanding the properties of nanoparticles became a focus of research. In this field Meyer at al.  are researching the GMR effect in granular gels to develop magnetoresistive sensors. The GMR in granular gels is simulated to investigate the physical processes in those systems. As soon as the models coincide with ...

The transfer of sucrose and fructooligosaccharides to melon and water to solution was modeled based on generalized form of Fick’s second law for simultaneous diffusion and resolved by the finite element method using the software package COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The diffusion coefficients, the mass transfer coefficient and the Biot number were determined using the simplex optimization ...
Comparison of User vs. COMSOL® Developed Automated Installation Verification of COMSOL Multiphysics® Software

 Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, USA
Verifying that a local software installation performs as the developer intended is a potentially time consuming but necessary step for safety related codes. Automating this process not only saves time, but can increase reliability and scope of verification compared to ‘hand’ comparisons. We now have for comparison both a user-developed tool using LiveLink™ for MATLAB® and an app (in beta) built ...

Engineering design has long been dominated by orthogonal Cartesian principles. Nature inspired equation based mathematical surfaces are under renewed interest due to their innovative design potential and practical viability by 3D printing. In this paper, the parametric surface modelling feature of COMSOL Multiphysics® is leveraged for developing engineering structures from equation based ...

Nowadays all branches in modern science and industry tend to solve ever complicating problems. As the result the computational time increases considerably and it become very important to reduce the processing time and use available resources more efficiently. Parallelizing problem proves itself as efficient way to overcome the described problem. In the poster we compare different methods of ...
Advancing Regulatory Science through Integrative Engineering with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software Modeling
