Modelling of Thermal Stresses in Industrial Continuous Casting Processes

Åberg, J., Vynnycky, M., Fredriksson, H.
KTH/Metallernas Gjutning, Stockholm, Sweden

This paper reports on progress in the implementation of COMSOL Multiphysics 3.2 to model thermal stresses in a three-dimensional solidifying shell, as occurs typically in the industrial continuous casting of copper, copper alloys and steel. Computer memory requirements prohibit a direct 3D numerical simulation of the temperature and the stresses. Instead, we use the fact that casting ...

This paper deals with the study of the effects of tissue parameters, such as electrical conductivity and permittivity on the electric field distribution of a rat mesenteric vasculature model under electroporation conditions. Electroporation is a nonviral, physical technique that involves transient dielectric breakdown of the cell’s plasma membrane when high intensity and short duration ...

Modeling an integrated, high flow rate MEMS ferrofluid pump

Mao, L., Koser, H.
Department of Electrical Engineering, Yale University, New Haven, CT

We present a FEMLAB modeling study of an integrated, high-flow rate microfluidic pump for ferrofluids. Initial studies of these microfluidic devices have been performed using a onedimensional setup in MATLAB and later confirmed by corresponding simulations with FEMLAB 3.1 in partial differential equation (PDE) mode. It is determined that maximum flow velocity is achieved when the product of ...

In Situ electric field simulation in Metal/Insulator/Metal (MIM) capacitors.

Gaillard, N., Pinzelli, L., Gros-Jean, M., Bsiesy, A.

In recent years, a large variety of high dielectric constant materials has been studied as an alternative to silicon dioxide in order to improve the electrical properties in many integrated devices. The authors pointed out MIM electrical properties modifications such as current-voltage shift and the decrease in the voltage gap between the different conduction mechanisms voltage threshold while ...

Finite-element modeling of acoustic scattering from 3-D elastic structures

David S. Burnett
Naval Surface Warfare Center
Panama City, USA

The author is integrating a suite of software tools for modeling the scattering of acoustic beams (sonar) from undersea targets (mines) that may be buried or partially buried in the sedimentary ocean bottom in littoral (shallow water) environments. This is a Multiphysics problem involving acoustic waves in the water, acoustic or poro-elastic waves in the sediment, and both elastic and acoustic ...

Finite Element Models for the Solution of Underwater Acoustics Problems

Zampolli, M., Tesei, A., Jensen, F.B.
NATO Undersea Research Centre, 19138 La Spezia, Italy

Acoustic waves are used in SONAR systems for the detection and classification of objects which may be swimming in the water column, proud on the seafloor, or buried below the sediment. In some applications, such as low frequency detection and classification of structurally complex objects immersed in a fluid, signal processing techniques must be aided by a-priori model based knowledge of the ...

An Integrated Approach for Simulating Bone Adaptation of Shape and Material Properties using FEMLAB with MATLAB and Simulink

Liu, X., Hart, R.T.
Tulane University, Department of Biomedical Engineering

A new computational approach for simulating bone adaptation was implemented using FEMLAB with MATLAB and Simulink. A Simulink model was created to describe shape adaptation of bone as a negative feedback system, in which the adaptation driving signals tend to return to an equilibrium range in which no shape adaptation will occur. FEMLAB was invoked using a MATLAB S-function in the Simulink ...

Numerical Simulation of the Electrochemical Impedance of a Microelectrode using FEMLAB

Gabrielli, C., Keddam, M., Rousseau, P., Vivier, V.
UPR 15 CNRS “LISE”, case 133 - Université P. & M. Curie, Paris, France

Numerical simulations of electrochemical impedance diagrams are reported using a 2D-axis symmetry FEM calculations. The impedance is the ratio of the potential over the current, but it is highly depending of the concentration of the various chemical species in the solution, particularly the ionic ones wich are sensible to migration, diffusion and convection effects. In this study, only the ...

COMSOL simulations using a comprehensive model for gas fluidized-bed reactors

Mahecha-Botero, A., Elnashaie, S.S.E.H., Grace, J.R., Lim, C.J.
Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University of British Columbia, East Mall, Vancouver, BC, Canada

COMSOL (formerly FEMLAB) is being utilized to solve partial differential equations simulating fluidized bed reactors as part of the development of a novel generalized fluidized-bed catalytic reactor model. Simulations are carried out to account for complex dynamic transport and hydrodynamic phenomena such as: heat and mass axial and radial anisotropic dispersion, temperature and pressure ...

3D electromagnetic modelling of a cold crucible for induction electro-processing of materials

Ernst, R.
EPM-MADYLAM laboratory, CNRS, Saint Martin d’Hères, France

The cold crucible is a tool which is frequently used for induction heating applications for the elaboration of materials by middle or high frequency magnetic field. This crucible is made of copper sectors assembled together to form the container in which the electroconductive material is molten. Each sector is water cooled, which keeps the crucible cold when the material is heated and molten ...
