[1]Department of Food Processing Engineering, Institute of Food Science and Biotechnology, Hohenheim University, Stuttgart, Germany
[2]Department of Meat Science and Food Physics, Institute of Food Science and Biotechnology, Hohenheim University, Stuttgart, Germany

The mathematical model is closely related to the development of a novel drying method for high viscous and sticky materials. The foamed state facilitates diffusive moisture transport and therefore accelerating the drying process. Moreover the dried porous material can be easily converted into the powder. The mathematical modelling aimed at evaluating the complex drying process as basic ...

K. Z. Gomes [1], T. A. G. Tolosa [1], E. V. S. Pouzada [1],
[1] Mauá Institute of Technology, São Caetano do Sul, SP, Brazil

In this work, a methodology is developed, based on the application of finite element method in the frequency domain, using the COMSOL Multiphyics software, aiming the sensibility analysis of inductance calculation involving some configurations of an E-core magnetic circuit. Such important analysis, are made from several geometries and considering different frequencies for the source current ...

[1] Universität der Bundeswehr München, Munich, Germany
[2] École polytechnique, Palaiseau, France

Using COMSOL Multiphysics® software, a new model was implemented with the Physics Builder functionality, which provides a thermomechanical coupling. It consists of two independent physics interfaces, one for the mechanical, viscoelastic behavior and one for the heat transfer. With the multiphysics coupling features it is now possible to add the effects of thermal expansion and dissipation or ...

The implementation of thermal insulation in old residential building walls could compromise the hygrothermal behavior of the construction, especially in summer time when it is placed inside. A bad installation of insulation could have consequences on the quality of indoor air conditions and on the health of the wall mostly during hot periods. Thus, the evaluation of heat and mass transfer ...

Thermal Study of Valve Regulated Lead Acid Batteries and Electronics Chamber Used in Stand-Alone Street Lighting Applications - new

[1]Mechanical Engineering, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada

This paper presents a study on the heat generation of Valve-Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries used in off-grid streetlighting applications from PoleCo, a Halifax based company. One goal of the project was to produce validated COMSOL® models of the enclosure that holds these VRLA batteries. This model can then be used to investigate methods of reducing the temperature of the batteries based on ...

Micromechanical Design of Novel Thermal Composites for Temperature Dependent Thermal Conductivity - new

R. C. Thiagarajan[1],
[1]ATOA Scientific Technologies Pvt. Ltd., Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

Materials with an order variable in thermal conductivity as a function of temperature are desirable for thermoelectric heat energy recovery, building thermal insulation and solar thermal applications. Thermal Conductivity is an inherent material property. Engineering the fundamental thermal conductivity needs manipulation at thermal photon level for conventional materials. Engineering thermal ...

[1] Newtecnic Ltd, London, England, UK
[2] University of Cambridge, UK

The subject of the study is a bespoke rainscreen system designed for the Grand Theatre of Rabat, Morocco (Figure 1). The project presents a complex façade geometry and consists of a 1800-seat theater, an open-air amphitheater with a capacity of 7000 people, a rehearsal space and a restaurant. The rainscreen system consists of fiberglass individually cast reinforced concrete (GRC) panels ...

Analysis of Superheater Tubes with Mutual Irradiation as Applied to a Solar Receiver Steam Generator

The objective of this paper is to analyze the temperature variations within a superheater tube of a solar receiver steam generator. The tube is heated by concentrated, collimated solar irradiation with major cooling by an internal steam flow. The influence of heat loss by radiation, internal convection, and conduction are considered. Analytical models are obtained for an isolated tube, and the ...

[1]Dipartimento di Ingegneria Astronautica, Elettrica ed Energetica - Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy

Fundamental component of the NMR tomograph is the magnet. By using the property of superconductivity it is possible to achieve an induction field extremely homogeneous, stable and high. To maintain the material below the superconducting critical temperature (7.2K), the coils are immersed in liquid helium at 4K, within a cryostat. In this paper, we present the preliminary results related to the ...

Benchmarks are important tools to verify computational models. In the research area of building physics, the so-called HAMSTAD (Heat, Air and Moisture STAnDardization) project is a very well known benchmark for the testing of simulation tools. In this paper we revisit this benchmark by modeling all five subtasks using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Again we conclude that the COMSOL® software ...
