The present study focuses on the design and analysis of a single-engine, propeller-driven general aviation airplane. Initial weight estimation based on the initial sketch and the design mission profile is conducted. The estimated weight and other design parameters are used to define the external geometry of the fuselage, wing and tail. Conic lofting is utilized to render a layout of the design ...

The air gap is one of the most crucial part of magnetic circuits, especially in high-power inductors. It significantly modifies the parameters of magnetic devices by increasing the saturation current, linearizing B-H curve of magnetic circuit and causing a decreasing in the inductance. Therefore the optimal selection of shape and dimensions of the air gap is very important from the design point ...

Our goal is to reproduce the key features of carangiform swimming by running 2D simulations which fully exploit the Fluid-Structure Interaction interface of COMSOL Multiphysics software. Fish swimming is an important area of research, with relevant developments on biomechanics, robotics and mathematical modeling. Usually, in fish swimming simulations, the motion of the fish is assigned, and much ...

The Mie solution to the scattering of electromagnetic waves by spherical particles has been examined using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The results assume elastic scattering only and do not include Brillouin or Raman scattering. The nature of the interaction has been considered for materials with three different properties: metallic, magnetic and dielectric. The solutions provide details of the ...

Computational tools based on the finite element method have been used extensively to develop solutions for elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics problems. This work uses a small-scale yielding model to compare results developed from COMSOL Multiphysics® with another finite element modeling package and analytical solutions. Analysis are conducted for elastic, and elastic-plastic ...

Proportional solenoids are well-known and used in a wide range of applications today. This paper is about methods of influencing the characteristic force-stroke-curves of magnetic actuators by means of different pole geometries. The conical design of the stator pole which is mostly used to accomplish proportional solenoids is analyzed by both a simple analytic reluctance model and a FEM model ...

A one-dimensional model of Excimer Laser-Annealing of amorphous silicon layers which are irradiated with a KrF excimer laser is described. For realisation, the application mode heat transfer in solids is used. The model predicts a melt threshold for the energy density of the laser of 88.5 mJ/cm^2. It also predicts a linear increase of the melt duration with a slope of approximately 625 (ns*cm^2) ...

The focus of this paper is to study the effect on resonance frequency and power enhancement techniques of piezoelectric MEMS and modeling, design, and optimization of a piezoelectric generator based on a two-layer bending element(Figure 1) using COMSOL Multiphysics. An analytical relation was developed based on the shift in resonance frequency(Figure 2) caused by the addition of a thin film ...

Analysis of burning candles is extremely complex; combustion produces a highly non-linear temperature profile through the flame in which local temperatures may exceed 1400 °C. Heat transfer includes radiation, conduction and convection components and the low melting point of the candle wax leads to a phase change that allows mass transport via capillary flow prior to combustion in the flame. ...

In the core of Chemical Engineering is the reactor design that includes most of all scientific disciplines. The reactors, in general, are treated ideally. Unfortunately, it is observed in the real world a very different behavior from that expected. Thus, to characterize nonideal reactors is used, among others, residence time distribution function E(t). The aim of this present work is to ...
