High temperature super conducting (HTS) cables are gaining attentions for their ability to transmit more power compared to their convention counterparts with essentially no resistance and electromagnetic emissions. They are also appropriate for solving the grid congestion problem in the power corridors with their reduced size and weight. But the AC loss that occurs in the HTS cables reduces the ...

Single Crystal Diamond NEMS Switch

M. Liao
Optical and Electronic Materials Unit
National Institute for Materials Science
Japan

A single-crystal diamond NEMS switch was fabricated while batch production of SCD MEMS/NEMS structures were developed. The diamond NEMS switches exhibit high performance with respect to high controllability, high reproducibility, and good reliability. Modeling and simulations were made that were consistent with experiments.

Drug Distribution in the Human Eye

L. Murtomäki[1], T. Kainuvaara[1]
[1]University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland

Drug therapy of the posterior segment of an eye is very challenging due to the difficult accessibility. Modern drugs often are large molecules, such as peptides, antibodies or oligonucleotides which are administrated, e.g. by intravitreous injections which requires clinical conditions. Computer modeling can be helpful in designing new and less invasive routes of drug administration. COMSOL is ...

Numerical Aspects of the Implementation of Artificial Boundary Conditions for Laminar Fluid-Structure Interactions

C. Boeckle[1], P. Wittwer[1]
[1]University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland

We discuss the implementation of artificial boundary conditions for stationary Navier-Stokes flows past bodies in the half-plane, for a range of low Reynolds numbers. When truncating the half-plane to a finite domain for numerical purposes, artificial boundaries appear. We present an explicit Dirichlet condition for the velocity at these boundaries in terms of an asymptotic expansion for the ...

Coupled Heat and Moisture Transfer in Building Components - Implementing WUFI® Approaches in COMSOL Multiphysics

B. Nusser[1], M. Teibinger[1]
[1]Holzforschung Austria, Vienna, Austria

Calculating time-dependent heat and moisture transports trough building components are important tasks in the area of building physics. A well known and worldwide used commercial software for this is WUFI®. From the scientific point of view the restricted access to governing equations is nevertheless a drawback of this software. In the present paper it is shown how the physical approaches used ...

Building Energy Simulation Using the Finite Element Method

J. van Schijndel[1]
[1]Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

In order to predict, improve and meet a certain set of performance requirements related to the indoor climate of buildings and the associated energy demand, building energy simulation (BES) tools are indispensable. Due to the rapid development of FEM software and the Multiphysics approaches, it should possible to build and simulate full 3D models of buildings regarding the energy demand. The ...

Evaluation of Low-Cycle-Fatigue Life of Solder Joints in Surface Mounting Power Devices by Finite Element Modeling

[2]CDTR - Centre for Device Thermography and Reliability, H. H. Wills Dept. of Physics, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom

The reliability of solder joints [1,2] is one of the key factors in the determination of the reliability of the high power density electronic converters, being the solder joints both the mechanical, the electrical, and often the thermal connections between the electronic component and the board in which the component is placed. The main mechanism by which solder joints are damaged is thermal ...

Coupled Electric-Thermal-Fluid Analysis of High Voltage Bushing

G. Eriksson[1]
[1]ABB, Corporate Research, Västerås, Sweden

Modern power transmission systems are in general designed to operate at high voltages in order to reduce resistive losses generated by high currents. This, however, tends to increase the risk for dielectric breakdown or flashovers if the equipment is not properly designed to withstand the stress. The present work illustrates how multiphysics simulations can be used to analyze and predict the ...

Contactless Power and Data Transfer for Multiple Nonlinear Loads

H.P. Schmidt [1], U. Vogl[1]
[1]UAS HAW Amberg-Weiden, Amberg, Germany

For the design of an inductive power and data transfer electromagnetic calculation are carried out. A transfer system is considered for loads that are distributed across some distances. For example, such loads are adjustable speed drives that are found in factory automation and intra-logistic. Physical properties of the inductive transfer are modeled via COMSOL. Lumped parameters are deduced from ...

The Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) technology has been proven to tolerate rate larger than 50 MHz/cm² without noticeable aging and to provide the sub-millimeter resolution on working chambers up to 45x45 cm² [1]. A new GEM tracker is under development for the upgrade of the SBS spectrometer in Hall A at Jefferson Lab. The chambers of the tracker have been designed in a modular way: each chamber ...
