[1]Facultad de Ingenieria Universidad Nacional de La Plata, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
[2]Facultad de Astronomia y Ciencias Geofisicas Universidad Nacional de La Plata, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This paper describes the development of a thermal model applied to a radiosonde system that calculates the average temperature on the printed circuit board PCB of the system. Using the thermal physics module called \"Conjugated Heat Transfer” of the COMSOL utility, simulations are performed which allow modeling the atmospheric conditions of the environment that the radiosonde will be ...

Gating of Gigantic Ionic Current through Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

P. Krstic, and J. Park
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Oak Ridge, TN

The gigantic magnitude features of the ionic current of electrolyte through carbon nanotubes (CNT) are explained by the dramatic increase of electroosmotic current induced by the strong slip at the CNT surface and the considerable excess volume charge inside the tube. In this study, we investigate the fundamental details of gating phenomena of such gigantic ionic current through CNT by using ...

Structural and Geomechanics Modeling of a Railroad Bridge

H. Diaz-Alvarez, R. Costley, D. Whitlow, M. McKenna, C. Williamson, and O. Taylor
US Army Engineer & Development Center
Vicksburg, MS

Previous studies have determined that bridges radiate acoustic energy in the infrasonic frequency range. Initial interest in this topic was the result of trying to identify sources of infrasound recorded at stations deployed near bridges. A Finite Element model has been developed for a Pratt truss railroad bridge located at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. The model consists of 3-D Euler beam elements ...

Optimization of the Design Parameters of a Piezoelectric Actuator

G. Srivastava[1], R. Sharma[1], A. Goswami[2], A. Phani[2], and R. K. Dwivedi[1]
[1]Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, India
[2]Indian Institute of Science, India

In this work a cantilever beam has been chosen as the element of study, consisting of a piezoelectric polymer like PVDF with a thin permalloy layer coating on one side of it. This piezoelectric cantilever is designed using COMSOL software. It is seen that the deflection of the tip of a unimorph cantilever is dependent on its geometric dimension, type of material and the applied field. Hence in ...

Modeling of Dehydration of Mushroom Using Finite Element Method

C. Anandharamakrishnan[1], A. Choudhary[2], and R. Gopirajah [1]

[2]Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal, Karnataka, India

Dehydration is one of the methods that would extend the shelf life of mushrooms. Dried mushrooms can be used in many different types of products. Furthermore, elevated temperatures during drying enhance enzymatic reactions that can result in improved flavor of dehydrated mushrooms. This study aims to model the dehydration of mushroom using finite element modeling (FEM) taking into account of ...

Design of a RF MEMS Switch

B. Mishra, M. P. S. Naidu, J. Raj, and Z. C. Alex
VIT University
Tamilnadu, India

This paper presents a novel design of a RF MEMS Switch. The switch is a capacitive type, which is actuated by an electrostatic force. The structure of the switch consists of a CPW (coplanar waveguides) transmission lines and a suspended membrane. The modelling of switch is done using COMSOL software and RF characteristics is found out by using CST software.

Design and Simulation of a Valveless Polymeric Micropump for Drug Delivery Applications

S. Babu[1], and P. Manohar[2]
[1]Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India
[2]Department of Medical Electronics, M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

Valveless micropumps have the advantage of being composed of least number of movable parts and hence can be used for long-term drug delivery applications. Their working principle is based on reciprocal forcing of fluid by an actuator through diffuser/nozzle elements generating a rectified mean flow. Micropumps based on different actuating mechanisms have already been designed and fabricated ...

Modeling and Simulation of Circular and Square Diaphragm Absolute Micro Pressure Sensors using COMSOL

[2]Department of Mechatronics, National Institute of Technology, Suratkal, India
[3]Department of Mechanical, National Institute of Technology, Suratkal, India
[4]Department of E&C, Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal, India

The aim of this paper is to model and simulate a Circular and Square diaphragm absolute micro pressure sensors. With the applied pressure, the change in deflection and stress pattern of the diaphragm is analytically determined. The structures are then simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The results obtained from analytical equations are compared with simulated results. The range and ...

Understanding of How Megathrust Earthquakes Affect Volcanoes

Youichiro TAKADA[1]
[1]Kyoto University, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

Several volcanic regions in the northeastern Honshu locally subsided in response to the crustal deformation associated with the 2011 Mw 9.0 Tohoku earthquake. High temperature rocks are distributed at shallow depths under these volcanic regions, and we interpret that the localized deformation of such hot regions due to the earthquake fault rupture caused the subsidence. We applied COMSOL ...

Optimization of Post-Heat Treatment for Doping of Metal Oxide Particles

P. Widiatmoko et al.[1]

[1]Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Fuchu, Tokyo, Japan

Liquid-to-solid route for preparing a doped metal oxide (powder) shows advantage on the homogeneity of the precursor as well as the product. Heat treatment plays important role in the process where the salt of precursor in the liquid reacts to form metal oxide solid particles. Understanding the effect of heat treatment in the doping process will then give great advantages. In the present study, ...
