New drug discovery and development is costly; of all compounds investigated for use in humans, only a small fraction is approved for treatments around the world. The pharmaceutical industry has started switching from molecular drugs to protein-based drugs due to high specificity, enhanced efficacy, affinity, solubility, and low toxicity. The estimated market growth of protein-based drugs is ...
Current Density Simulations in the Electrodeposition from Ionic Liquids: Effects of the Conductivity

Department of Chemistry, University of Firenze, Sesto Fiorentino, FI, Italy
The overall goal of this work is the use of COMSOL Multiphysics® in the modeling of the current density distributions for the electrodeposition of aluminum coatings from ionic liquids. The local current distribution is strongly dependant on the conductivity and on the geometry of the galvanic cell and can only be computed by the numerical solution of the partial differential equations ...

The understanding of quench, or the sudden transition to the normal state of a high-current Superconductor (SC), is fundamental for the design of a SC magnet, and it is widely discussed in the literature. This paper presents some simple COMSOL models, which are compared with well-known approximate formulae and some experimental results. These models allow a more precise description than it is ...
Equation-Based Modelling: True Large Strain, Large Displacement and Anand's Plasticity Model with COMSOL's Moving Mesh Application Mode

In this work the solution of the structural problem obtained by mean of the velocity approach is presented. More in detail the balance and constitutive equations are expressed in Eulerian form, the mesh is not material. The approach is general, is suitable both for material boundary or no-material boundary and for a generic material model. The Hooke's elastic model and the Anand's plasticity ...

Corona discharge is used in several applications such as surface treatment of polymers, photocopying or dust removal in air conditioning. Streamer formation is undesirable for most of these applications. Therefore, several studies have been dedicated to investigate the formation and propagation of streamers, which are still not fully understood. The most suitable models to describe streamers are ...

Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is a 500MWe, sodium cooled, pool type, mixed oxide (MOX) fuelled reactor. Sodium flow measurement in various loops of the reactor is of prime importance from the operational and safety aspects. To measure the flow of electrically conducting sodium in large secondary circuit pipes, probe type permanent magnet flowmeters (PTFM) are used. PTFM works on the ...

Submerged membrane bioreactor (SMBR) is an efficient technology for wastewater treatment that combines biological process and membrane filtration in one single stage. In the most usual configuration, submerged membrane hollow fibers are set in several planes. Air is introduced from the bottom in order to supply oxygen to the microorganisms but also to reduce fouling over the membrane fibers. ...

TAP (Temporary Analysis of Products) reactors are powerful instruments to study the kinetics of catalytic reactions. Their basic principle, exposition of evacuated solids of interest to narrow pulses containing very small amounts of gases, and measuring the concentrations of outgoing molecules permits to study practical catalysts under the conditions approaching those of molecular beam ...

Porous Silicon (PS) can easily be formed by electrochemical etching of silicon in HF based electrolytes at room temperature. Since, PS is compatible with silicon IC technology; it finds lot of applications in the fabrication of MEMS devices. In the current study, we discuss the design of a condenser microphone using a Silicon/ Porous Silicon composite membrane as a movable plate. The performance ...
