The electromagnetic fields have a great influence on the behavior of all the living systems. The human body itself is a source of naturally generated electric and magnetic fields. When external signals of comparable strength flows through the human body; the nature of changes that such signals could induce in natural electrochemical processes and voltage is a subject of interest and of ...

In spite of its low throughput, Patch-Clamp is the established method for intracellular measurements of the transmembrane potential. To address this problem, we have developed new biosensor-chips with micro-structured needle electrodes (MNEs). MNE-penetration of single cells growing on the MNE-tips leads to a situation comparable to the whole-cell mode in classical Patch Clamp. MNE-penetration ...

Gravity-Driven Film Flow: Design of Bottom Topography

C. Heining[1] and N. Aksel[1]

[1]Applied Mechanics and Fluid Dynamics, University of Bayreuth, Bayreuth, Germany

We study the gravity-driven film flow of a Newtonian liquid down an inclined plane. Many applications such as heat- and mass exchangers and evaporators or film coaters require undulated or rippled bottom topographies. In these cases, the interplay of gravity, surface tension and inertia leads to a response of the interface which furthermore strongly depends on the shape of the bottom topography. ...

Modeling the Rheology of Liquid Detergents

Vincenzo Guida
R&D Process Design Principal Engineer, Procter & Gamble, Italy

Outline of presentation: Comsol is a very flexible platform, ideal to model rheology modification under flow Analogy with reactive flows allows modeling of both thixotropy and gelation with decent level of accuracy and predictability It is possible, to a certain extent, to use 1D rheology to extrapolate 3D behavior ---------------------------------- Keynote speaker's biography:Vincenzo ...

FEMLAB as a Front-end for Large-scale Acoustic Modeling Parallelized Wave Basis Solver for the 3D Helmholtz Problems

Huttunen, T.1, Malinen, M.1, Vanne, A.1, Monk, P.2 1 University of Kuopio, Department of Applied Physics, Kuopio, Finland
2 University of Delaware, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Newark, DE, USA

We introduce an extension for FEMLAB's acoustic mode which uses the ultra-weak variational formulation (UWVF) method for solving 3D Helmholtz problems. The solver, calledWaveller, uses FEMLAB's graphical interface for creating geometries, generating meshes, post-processing and visualization. However, the solution of acoustic wave problems using the UWVF significantly reduces the computational ...

Charakterisierung einer magnetorheologischen Flüssig-keit für die Innenhochdruck-Umformung von Rohren

Dal Bó, P., Blankl, A., Geiger, M.
Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Lehrstuhl für Fertigungstechnologie, Erlangen, Deutschland

Bei der Innenhochdruck-Umformung von Rohren findet die Umformung durch eine Kombination aus Aufweiten und Stauchen statt. Aufgrund des Innendrucks und der daraus resultierenden Reibung zwischen Werkzeug und Werkstück erfolgt bei einem sehr langen Rohr kein weiteres Nachschieben in die Aufweitzone, sondern lediglich ein Aufstauchen in der Führungszone. Mit Hilfe der Strömung eines hochviskosen ...

Two-fluid modelling of an abnormal low-pressure glow discharge

Low-pressure glow discharges are of topical interest for a lot of technological applications like plasma light sources, plasma processing for surface modification, and plasma chemistry. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the fundamental processes of glow discharges is required to e.g. optimize the discharge parameters in these plasma applications. Theoretical investigations can help to ...

Modélisation d'une décharge luminescente à la pression atmosphérique

Cormier, J.M., Semmar, N., Ouni, M.F.
GREMI, UMR 6606, Orléans

Les décharges luminescentes à pression atmosphérique sont étudiées expérimentalement en laboratoire pour la valorisation des alcanes et notamment la production d'hydrogène à partir du méthane. La modélisation des dispositifs usuels est complexe compte tenu de l'aspect non stationnaire des décharges. Afin d'évaluer le poids des paramètres de réglage d'un réacteur nous avons ...

Enhanced multipole boundary conditions in FEMLAB

Kildishev, A.1, Danielsson, E.2
1 Purdue University, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
2 COMSOL AB

Designers of electromagnetic and electromechanical devices often need to predict external magnetic fields of devices with good accuracy. This paper considers a less common approach to the open boundary problems, which is built on the spatial harmonic analysis (SHA) of the field over a basis boundary of the finite element (FE) domain. It is important that the spatial harmonic analysis of complex ...

Computations of the earth’s and other solar planets’ magnetic moments with the aid of a FEMLAB electromagnetic module

Wada, J.Y.
Retired, Hughes Space & Communications Co. (Now Boeing Co.)

Computations have been performed of Earth’s and other solar planets’ magnetic moments with the aid of a FEMLAB Electromagnetic Module. The FEMLAB library has a specific program that calculates magnetic field strength and distribution resulting from a circular current source. This program has been adapted with 38 concentric loops to simulate the conductive currents circulating within the ...
