The reaction sphere is a magnetic bearing electromagnetic spherical actuator for satellite attitude control. The reaction sphere consists in a 3D motor composed of a 20-coil stator and an 8-pole permanent magnet rotor. The rotor is synthesized wit a mosaic of 728 cylindrical magnets glued on the rotor back-iron so as to approximate the selected magnetization pattern. These cylindrical magnets ...

2D Simulation of Cardiac Tissue - new

S. Esfahani[1]
[1]University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, USA

A two-dimensional atrial tissue model has been constructed in COMSOL Multiphysics® software to study the propagation of action potential and electrograms. The model presents the atrial electrograms recorded with a mapping catheter. A 2D atrial tissue model is simulated using the Courtemanche et al. cell model equations. PDE in coefficient form was used in COMSOL Multiphysics® to reproduce ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used to model a water tree in tape shield and concentric neutral cables. It allows for the effect on electric field intensity at the tip of the water tree and electric potential due to the water tree to be better understood. Also, COMSOL is used to calculate the resistance and capacitance of a section of cable with a water tree as it grows across the insulation. ...

Geomagnetic Modeling with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

[1]Chungnam National University, Daejeon, Korea

Here we aim to advance geomagnetic modeling approaches using COMSOL Multiphysics® software and improve the degree of detail that can be obtained from the measured magnetic field. First, we carried out benchmark tests by comparing the computed results using the widely used analytic solutions for rectangular bodies with arbitrary direction of magnetization with those from the AC/DC Module of ...

Pulsed Power Accelerator Design with COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

D. Reisman[1]
[1]Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM, USA

We have developed Thor: a pulsed power accelerator for performing dynamic material experiments. The design was aided by using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software with the AC/DC Module and RF Module. Our design process involved optimizing the impedance of the system while maintaining a good margin against electrical breakdown. By using a three-dimensional electromagnetic model of the entire power ...

Finite Element Modeling for Inspection of CANDU® Steam Generators - new

[2]Department of Physics, Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston, ON, Canada

Steam generators (SGs) are used in CANDU® nuclear reactors as heat exchangers to convert water into steam using heat generated in the reactor core. Ferrous trefoil broach support structures prevent excessive vibration of thousands of SG tubes. A probe that uses pulsed eddy current (PEC) technology has been designed for inspection of support structures, from within SG tubes, to detect and ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® Software: Time-Lapse Electrical Resistivity Inversion - new

[1]Department of Civil, Geological & Mining Engineering, École Polytechnique de Montréal, Montreal, QC, Canada
[2]Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources, Daejeon, South Korea

Time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) method provides a non-invasive way to monitor subtle sub-surface changes caused by water flow such as in an infiltration test. Problems arise when the inversion models contain artifacts due to measurement errors, rapid change in soil electrical property during measurement time, etc. A new approach was developed by Kim et al. (2004) and (2009) ...

1. It is feasible to focus and guide nanoparticles with permanent magnets and ferromagnetic particles to achieve clinically significant olfactory dosages. 2. With appropriate magnetophoretic guidance and selective drug release, an olfactory delivery efficiency of more than 20% can be achieved. 3. The optimal particle size range for magnetophoretic guidance is 10−15 µm.

Uterine contractions during pregnancy are currently poorly understood – experts disagree on the mechanisms by which contractions propagate through the organ and the structural layout of the uterine muscle fibers. We have developed a multi-scale model of the uterus, at the cellular, tissue, and organ levels. By comparing simulated abdomen-level magnetic field readings from our model to clinical ...
