This presentation is concerned with the modelling of deformable non-Newtonian Flow using COMSOL Multiphysics. This general modelling approach has more concrete applications such as paper coating in a metering size press, meniscus location by PIDS to mention a few.

The inverse problem of electrocardiography involves determining information about the electrical activity of the heart from measurements on the body surface. The estimation of certain physiological parameters can potentially improve early detection of heart disease. In this study, we present an algorithm for estimating parameters that characterize the electrical activation. Estimation of ...

The objective of this researh is to develop new, magnetically-directed, self-assembly approaches to enable three-dimensional structures to be formed in parallel from a heterogeneous mixture of parts of arbitrary size and shape.
In this presentation we present where COMSOL Multiphysics and its modules will be in the year 2007. The presentation considers the upcoming features, not only from a developers point of view, but also through examples from different branches of applied physics and mathematics. In addition, we present some important milestones during the past 10 years for COMSOL ...

The pilot Molte lead-bismuth target circuit (TC-1) in the University of Nevada was designed for beam power of 1 MW accelerator driven system (ADS). Circulation of the liquid alloy is driven by an annular linear induction pump. A numerical study of the pump efficiency has been conducted to determine which operational parameters are responsible for this low efficiency and to give insight ...
Vibrational Analysis using Wavelet Techniques coupled with Wing Structural Modeling of the Pathfinder Plus

The motivation for this work is to explore the combination of a multiphysics COMSOL model of the wing of the Pathfinder Plus research aircraft with a wavelet-based vibration detection scheme. COMSOL Multiphysics is utilized to model the physics of the aerodynamics that produce vibration in the wing structure of the Pathfinder Plus. Next, three Daubechies wavelets are used to detect the ...
Chemical Pulse Dynamics and Control in Microdesigned Catalysts: Phenomena, Modeling and Computational Wrappers

We study the effect of two-dimensional composite catalyst geometry and spatiotemporal laser heating on the dynamics of CO oxidation on a Pt (110) surface. The project involves a combination of modeling, computation and experimentation. We show (through both FEMLAB and specially designed experiments) that local laser heating actuation appropriately designed in space and time can be critical in ...
