The performance of Li-ion battery is known to be dependent on the thickness direction distribution of binder volume fraction. The distribution is determined by drying process of electrode ink, which contains large active material and small binder. With the aim of predicting binder segregation, we studied new drying model of two-particle system solution by considering capillary pressure.

In this report I study the airflow through ventilation ducts. By numerical simulation, the so-called k-factor has been estimated. The k-factor is the quotient of the airflow volume and the square root of the pressure drop over the duct. A two dimensional axial symmetric model has been used to simulate an iris damper connected to a straight pipe. A three dimensional model has been used to ...

Sleep apnea is a type of sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or instances of shallow or infrequent breathing during sleep. There is a need to diagnose sleep apnea since it leads to fluctuations in the oxygen level that in turn affect the heart rate and blood pressure. In order to detect this disorder, a Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) based piezoelectric pressure sensor ...

All-solid-state batteries are among the next generation battery concepts that are currently being envisaged among both the international research community and industrial electronic vehicle producers. In addition to a long lifetime of more than several thousand cycles and intrinsic safety, applying solid electrolytes offers a high energy density due to larger electrochemical windows. Aluminum is ...

INTRODUCTION: Researchers in the biomedical field have recently become interested in the potential applications of plasomics. Surface plasmon resonance based on optical properties of metallic nanostructures can be used for detection of special biological targets. Gold nanostructures with different shapes and sizes have been designed to achieve high enhancement factor (EF), wide range of ...

海洋覆盖了地球表面百分之七十以上的面积，其中蕴藏着丰富的生物矿产资源，日益受到世界各国的重视。声波作为海水中传输信号的唯一载体，在浅海波导中的传播受海底和海面影响很大，当声波在浅海波导中发生折射反射和散射时，如何预报复杂海底边界条件下浅海中的传播特性对海洋开发有重要意义。针对含有声速剖面的沉积层海底、楔形海底及实际弹性海底，利用有限元理论，对二维浅海声场的传播损失进行数值模拟。应用 COMSOL Multiphysics® 软件的声压接口和声结构耦合接口，把地形数据导入软件模拟真实海底的地形。把浅海波导简化成分层矩形，信号源以点声源的形式向外发射单频信号，在模型定义处添加完美匹配层模拟无限远距离处声压场情况；对于含有声速剖面情况的波导问题，在 COMSOL 中可以较为便捷地以添加内插函数的形式进行仿真，与其他声场建模软件形成对比，突显有限理论元理论计算浅海传播损失的优势 ...

In recent years, studies on robotics have been needed, to utilise the tactile sensors for artificial skin. Researchers have been working on tactile transduction technologies which lead to many sensor prototypes and devices for robotic applications in their effort to solve the tactile sensing problems in robotics and medical industries, but they remain unsatisfactory. This project addresses the ...

Previous to the present work, a formal calculation was approved [1,2] to support the operation of the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) Horizontal Beam-Tube 1 of 4 (HB-1). The present calculation [3,4] repeats the previous work using COMSOL Multiphysics® software and extends the analysis to cover a broader range of coolant flow. In addition, this new calculation expands the analysis much further ...

Standard measuring techniques for thermal conductivity cannot be readily applied to determine the load-dependent thermal conductivity of porous adsorbents, because the local ad- and desorption inside the specimen and the thickness of the specimen are not considered. Hence, in this work a new measuring procedure combining the transient hot bridge (THB) with a three dimensional finite element ...

A recently published conservative algorithm for simulating reactions and transport in moving domains have been extended to models in which cell kinematics are coupled with intracellular dynamics. For this, the method that combines a Eulerian approach with tracking an explicit boundary was linked to FronTier, a robust front-tracking technique. The extended algorithm was validated using a set of ...
