Applied Chemical and Engineering Systems
In a Solar Hot Water System, the hot water from the solar collector enters at the top of the storage tank. A relevant question concerning the storage is what will the outlet temperature be. In the present work we present a way to model Solar Hot Water Systems.
In this presentation we present where COMSOL Multiphysics and its modules will be in the year 2007. The presentation considers the upcoming features, not only from a developers point of view, but also through examples from different branches of applied physics and mathematics. In addition, we present some important milestones during the past 10 years for COMSOL ...

The pilot Molte lead-bismuth target circuit (TC-1) in the University of Nevada was designed for beam power of 1 MW accelerator driven system (ADS). Circulation of the liquid alloy is driven by an annular linear induction pump. A numerical study of the pump efficiency has been conducted to determine which operational parameters are responsible for this low efficiency and to give insight ...
Vibrational Analysis using Wavelet Techniques coupled with Wing Structural Modeling of the Pathfinder Plus

Center of Excellence for Communication Systems Technology Research, Texas
The motivation for this work is to explore the combination of a multiphysics COMSOL model of the wing of the Pathfinder Plus research aircraft with a wavelet-based vibration detection scheme. COMSOL Multiphysics is utilized to model the physics of the aerodynamics that produce vibration in the wing structure of the Pathfinder Plus. Next, three Daubechies wavelets are used to detect the ...
Chemical Pulse Dynamics and Control in Microdesigned Catalysts: Phenomena, Modeling and Computational Wrappers

Department of Chemical Engineering, Princeton University
We study the effect of two-dimensional composite catalyst geometry and spatiotemporal laser heating on the dynamics of CO oxidation on a Pt (110) surface. The project involves a combination of modeling, computation and experimentation. We show (through both FEMLAB and specially designed experiments) that local laser heating actuation appropriately designed in space and time can be critical in ...
