Plasma technology has potential applications in a wide range of areas, such as microwave reflectors/absorbers, material processing, sterilization and chemical neutralization. The knowledge about the fluid behavior in such systems has a central role, since the stability of the flow in the region of the electrical arc is essential for the development of a well-behaved torch. In this work, a ...

The modelling of a ferrite material is conventionally carried out using the Polder permeability tensor which assumes that the ferrite is saturated by a uniform magnetic field. This assumption is often inaccurate due to the constraints imposed by boundary conditions which renders the magnetic field non-uniform. This work proposes to overcome this by determining the magnetic field through a ...

INTRODUCTION: Abnormalities in local body surface temperature have been recognized as a sign of disease for centuries, much before humans knew about the cause of ailments or of pain . The idea of this work is to use numerical simulation tools to predict the location, size and metabolism of tumor embedded in any outer body organ of human. Idealized thermal data of an organ, modeled either as a ...

The filling process of thermoformed cups with food like yogurt is followed by placing a laminated aluminum foil for hermetic sealing on top of the cup. By today’s standards the sealing of the thermoformed aluminum foil with the cup is primarily realized by contact heat with a hot stamp. However this method has tremendous disadvantages. The hot stamp may locally cause a detachment of the color ...

Dedicated work in modeling, simulation and design optimization of Lithium-ion Battery (LIBs) was done in the past decades, and still, the most widely used one for electrochemical processes is the Newman model.  The underlying parameters are treated deterministically, but the impact of uncertainty due to experimental accuracy limitations and cell-to-cell variations have an undeniable impact on ...

锂空电池中空气电极是阴极反应的重要场所，空气电极结构设计的好坏极大地影响了锂空气电池的能量效率、倍率性能和循环寿命。为了强化氧气在空气电极中的传递过程，本文对一种层级结构空气电极进行研究：由泡沫铝制成的氧气分布板承载排列有序的碳纳米管阵列，氧气在阵列管中有规律传输、排布、反应。经计算得模拟计算所需的阵列管规格为外径1200、1400、1600nm;管长35000、43000、49000nm。然后绘制出9组数据的空气电极层级结构三维图纸，导入 COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2a 中，运用多孔介质稀物质接口，定义材料后编译域和边界条件，完成网格划分后进行后处理，最终模拟出氧气在空气电极内部传递过程与达到稳态后的氧气分布结果。接着用得到的数据在 Origin 绘图软件上绘制二维与三维柱状图，比较九组数据，发现规格为内径 1300nm ,管长 35000nm ,长径比为 21 ...

New geothermal energy sources hold promise for the future. Deep submarine geothermal energy related to hydrothermal vents is emerging in many places along the oceanic spreading centers. Shallow submarine geothermal systems are found near to continental platforms. We present the initial development of mathematical models to simulate the energy transport in submarine systems. A model for the ...

In this paper resonances in tapered double-port TEM waveguides are used as benchmark for simulations. FEM simulations with COMSOL Multiphysics® and simulations using generalised telegraphist's equations with MATLAB® are compared to ananalytical method capable of calculating the resonances of higher order modes. It is valid for tapered double-port TEM waveguides with constant ...

We present a study of an optofluidic biosensor. The sensor operates in a transmission mode wherein detection is based on a shift in the transmission spectrum caused by the contrast in refractive index between the carrier fluid and the target biomaterial. We study the behavior of the sensor using 2D full-wave electromagnetic analysis, and perform parametric studies of sensitivity as a function ...
