Selective Laser Melting (SLM) offers great potential for future manufacturing technology. In order to extend its applicability for the processing of high melting materials like molybdenum fundamental process understanding is required. This can be obtained by multiphysical simulations that allow a look into the process. In this contribution a thermo-fluiddynamical simulation model for laser beam ...

[1] Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India

This paper deals with the simulation of mathematical model for supercritical extraction. Reverchon, 1996 extracted sage oil using supercritical extraction method from sage leaves at 9 MPa and 50 ᵒC. Four mean size of sage leaves ranging from 0.25 to 3.10 mm were taken for extraction with other experimental conditions and process parameters. Experimental results were fitted in the model developed ...

Laser Welded Blank solutions enable to reduce vehicles weight and to optimize their crash performances by means of simultaneous tuning of different grades and thicknesses. The present work aims to characterize numerically and experimentally materials mixing during laser welding. For better understanding of materials mixing based on convection-diffusion process in case of full penetrated laser ...

[1] Veryst Engineering LLC, Needham, MA, USA

Indoor ventilation with good air quality control prevents infection with minimizing the spread of airborne respiratory and other infections in hospitals. CFD can be utilized to optimize flow pattern in clean rooms especially hospital clean rooms. More than two million people in Europe are infected due to Health-care Associated Infection (HAI) (Pittet et al., 2005). It is believed that transfer ...

Fluid Flow Analysis For Cross-Flow Around Four Cylinders Arranged In A Square Configuration

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Cross-flow around a group of cylinders is a very common phenomenon in engineering, such as flow around heat exchanger tube arrays. The cross-flow-induced vibration might cause a reduction of equipment life and might even lead to the occurrence of severe accidents. Hence, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of flow-induced vibration and the associated fluid–structure interaction in order ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® Simulation of Flow in a Radial Flow Fixed Bed Reactor (RFBR)

[1] Department of Chemical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, USA

For design of radial flow fixed bed reactors, it is important to ensure proper flow distribution through the catalyst bed. A 2D axisymmetric model of a radial-flow reactor was used to evaluate flow maldistribution through the catalyst bed and the pressure drop through the reactor for a specified flow rate. Effects of different catalysts, screen sizes and flow direction were simulated. Factors ...

Seals or gaskets that are compressed between walls of a container are important to many industrial applications. In this paper we present a fluid flow model for predicting the sealing performance of such seals. A computational study using COMSOL Multiphysics® software suggests very strong simplifications to the postulated flow equations.

1. Introduction The topology optimization method is becoming increasingly popular as a design tool for multiphysics systems [1,2]. Topology optimization of fluid-thermal systems has been presented for example in [3] for forced convective heat transfer and in [4] for natural convection problems. In this work, topology optimization including density filtering and projection is applied to ...
