The control of the flux within continuous casting systems used in the metallurgical field can be obtained through the application of electromagnetic. The model here has been solved through a linear time-harmonic solver. The results of the electromagnetic model have then been applied to the fluid-mechanics model through volume Lorentz forces.

In this presentation we present our analysis of the PARC Nanocalorimeter. Calorimetry is basically the measuring of heat of chemical reactions or physical changes. Nanocalorimetry is Calorimetry at the Nanometer scale. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is a special type of Calorimeter, it consists of arrays of Nanocalorimeters. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is intended to be used for screening biochemical ...

It has become common place to use micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of solutions. However, such microchips have not yet been applied to the analysis of radioactive solutions, for the purpose of nuclear safeguards, in the nuclear reprocessing industry. Implementing MEMS in this area results in a reduced volume of the sample to be analysed. This has many ...

In this presentation we will show how to partially model a grand piano action. Then we will apply different touches to this virtual action and try to hear any difference. --------------------------------- Riccardo Ferrari was one of the keynote speakers at the COMSOL User's Conference, fall 2005 in Milano

In this presentation, a silicon-based microchannel heat sink with single and counter flows is modeled. The fluid flow and heat transfer inside the microchannels are simulated and analyzed, and optimisation of the design parameters is performed. Keynote speaker's biography:Shahrir Abdullah is a technical expert on COMSOL Multiphysics. He has conducted seminars, workshops & lecturers on ...

The thin shell of the LBT Adaptive Secondary Mirror has been manufactured, optically polished, and delivered. The operations and tests required before finally mounting it on the telescope have to be run very carefully, as they imply loads completely different from the ones of the adaptive operational modes - studied in the past with very encouraging results. Deformations and stresses that occur ...

Temperature distributions of cooled Germanium (Ge) detectors are calculated by the COMSOL Multiphysics software in order to determine the necessary cooling power of an electromechanical cooling engine. For a single Ge-crystal, heat losses of 2.5 W are determined, which increase to 5.7 W for a composite detector with three Ge-crystals.The energy transfer may be reduced substantially by a heat ...

Modeling electrolysers is a challenge because of the strong coupling between electrical, thermal and CFD equations. Indeed the electrical conductivity of the electrolyte varies with the temperature, which in turn depends on the heat dissipated by the Joule effect and anode over-voltage.In the present study, the fluid velocity values are computed near the electrodes using a diphasic level set ...

The purpose of this study was the optimization of an industrial furnace from a thermal point of view. Such a cylindrical furnace contains an Al-Mg molten alloy covered by a KCl-NaCl molten salt layer floating on it to prevent alloy evaporation. When tilting the cylindrical furnace, it was necessary to compute the relation between the salt and alloy volumes and the area of the liquid alloy/salt ...

The generation 4 of molten salt reactors using the thorium cycle are characterized by a temperature close to 1000 oC. The very large heat transfers involved between the reactor core and the external parts with minimal thermal losses are a major issue. This study investigated a possible inner loop made of a series of conventional graphite filter plate exchangers, pipes and pumps, using the COMSOL ...
