The Simulation of Motion of a Slider upon a Stator Due to Frictional Force Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

H. B. Nemade[1]
[1]Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Guwahati, Assam, India

The Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) linear motor was studied which is developed utilizing the friction principle for driving. The principle says that, when a slider is placed on the Rayleigh waves generated on a stator, the slider moves in reverse direction of the wave due to friction between the stator and the slider. A LiNbO3 piezoelectric substrate is used as a stator where comb structured Al ...

Permeability in Fragmented Materials and its Application to Underground Mining

S. Palma [1], R. Castro [1], A. Hekmat [1],
[1] Mining Engineering Department, Block Caving Laboratory, University of Chile, Santiago, Chile

The block caving mine is considered by the mining industry as one of the natural replacements of the current open cut mines in the near future. The block caving technique is based on the extraction of small broken rocks, created by blasted initially large solid rocks, and the fracture of compact material located in the upper layers because the stress propagation generated by the extraction ...

Simulation of Active Underwater Cylindrical Acoustic Antenna

R. Lardat [1],
[1] Thales Underwater Systems, Sophia Antipolis, France

The simulation of a large acoustic cylindrical antenna made of numerous identical transducers is very often out of reach in terms of computational cost. Therefore the usual design procedure consist in optimizing the transducer standing alone, either in free field arrangement or sitting on a hard baffle. Once the antenna is produced, one can very often see problems arising on the antenna response ...

Simulation Study in Design of Miniaturized MID-Infrared Sensors

Universität Ulm
Ulm, Deutschland

Evanescent-wave optical waveguide is widely used as sensing platform for chemical/biological sensor applications. Our research group contributed to on-chip IR sensor technology and made recent progress in miniaturizing such devices utilizing quantum cascade lasers (QCL) in combination with planar GaAs/Al0.2Ga0.8As waveguides. Furthermore progress is reported toward microfabricated Mid-infrared ...

Simulation of Incompressible Flow through Rhombohedric Pores

[2]Dep. of Mathematics, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy
[3]Dep. of Soil, Water, and Environmental Science, University of Arizona, Arizona, USA

Advances in visualization and discretization of pore structures by means of Computed Tomography, and rapidly increasing computational capabilities, allow numerical modeling of pore-scale fluid flow based on the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations rather than using a macroscopic approach based on Darcy’s law. To test the capabilities of the COMSOL Multiphysics modeling platform, we ...

Electrical Impedance Sensor to Detect Tunnels and Infrastructure in Soil  

R. Gamache, and D. Spinelli
TransTech Systems, Inc., Schenectady, NY, USA

Tunnels and their detection have been a problem in warfare since the ancient world. Recent events have highlighted the ongoing problems of tunnels and the difficulties in locating them, not only in military situations, but also in law enforcement and homeland security applications as well. Electromagnetic and acoustic or seismic techniques may provide the significant advantage of a mobile non ...

Modeling of III-Nitride Quantum Wells with Arbitrary Crystallographic Orientation for Nitride-Based Photonics

M. Kisin, R. Brown, and H. El-Ghoroury

Ostendo Technologies, Inc., Carlsbad, CA, USA

A program for self-consistent modeling of electron-hole energy spectrum and space-charge distribution in III-nitride based quantum well (QW) structures has been developed. The model takes into consideration full 6-band description of the valence band states, nonparabolicity of the electron spectrum, quantum confinement of electrons and holes, strain induced modifications of the band structure, ...

Simulation of Current Collector Corrosion Effects on the Efficiency of Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

[1]Dipartimento di Matematica, Università del Salento, Lecce, Italy
[2]Brindisi Fuel Cell Durability Laboratory, Facoltà di Ingegneria Industriale, Università del Salento, Brindisi, Italy

Corrosion and contact ohmic resistance of the stainless steel current collectors in molten carbonates is one of the greatest obstacles to widespread application of molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFC). We simulate the variation of material parameters values, accounting for the impact of corrosion of the metallic current collectors on the performance of the porous cathode. Furthermore, we couple a ...

Modelling and Experimental Validation Possibilities of Heat Transfer Room Model

M. Zalesak, and V. Gerlich
Tomas Bata University in Zlin, Zlin, Czech Republic

The study presents first authors experience with COMSOL Multiphysics environment used as a possible modeling tool of thermal building behavior. The idea of the project was to gain thermal response to changed boundary conditions with the application of COMSOL environment as a modeling tool for 3D buildings or 3D building segments. The room as building segment was implemented in the COMSOL ...

Investigation Of Bone Marrow Stem Cells In The Bone Marrow Niche In An In Vitro System

P. Lezuo, M. Stoddart, and M. Alini
AO Research Institute, Davos, Grison, Switzerland

We aim to develop an in vitro culture system to mimic the human bone marrow stem cell niche in an artificial perfusion bioreactor environment to culture human adult stem cells. State of the art human bone marrow stem cell research shows that even smallest changes in the physical, thermo dynamical or biochemical environment induce a differentiation of human bone marrow stem cells into other cell ...
