Previous studies proposed using bipolar radiofrequency ablation across two catheters placed on opposing surfaces of the ventricular wall to create transmural lesions. 2D and 3D models were built and solved with COMSOL Multiphysics software. With these models, it was possible to study the temperature distribution and lesion geometry (Figure), to compare the potential of two ways of applying ...

High performance micro sensors are important to detecting special nuclear materials radiations in different fields to save the globe. This paper is mainly focused on to develop a MEMS based bolometer for detecting the nuclear radiation to provide the high security in Nuclear power Plants. A thermally sensitive micro metal plate is designed and placed on a substrate through micro thermal link. ...

Phase Field Modeling of Helium Precipitate Networks on Solid-state Interfaces

D. Yuryev[1], M. Demkowicz [1]
[1]Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA

We describe simulations performed in COMSOL Multiphysics® of the precipitation of helium (He) on solid-state interfaces. The non-uniform precipitation of He at certain interfaces is a result of a heterogeneous energy distribution in the interface plane: He wets high interface energy (“heliophilic”) regions but does not wet low interface energy (“heliophobic”) ones. Using a phase-field model, ...

Fixed nitrogen is used in many forms ranging from nitric acid to hydrogen cyanide and is used as such for industrial applications. The reactions to produce these products are highly endothermic and favored by high-temperature processing. The most basic route of chemically fixing nitrogen is the direct reaction of nitrogen and oxygen. However, the major challenge is to supply very high ...

Several Benchmarks for Heat Transfer Problems in COMSOL Multiphysics®

S. Titarenko[1]
[1]University of Leeds, Leeds, United Kingdom

Nowadays all branches in modern science and industry tend to solve ever complicating problems. As the result the computational time increases considerably and it become very important to reduce the processing time and use available resources more efficiently. Parallelizing problem proves itself as efficient way to overcome the described problem. In the poster we compare different methods of ...

3D-FEA of the Relationship between the Occiput and Sphenoid in the Osteopathic Paradigm - new

Y. Chiesa[1]
[1]Istituto Superiore di Osteopatia, Milan, Italy

The concept of cranial Primary Respiratory Mechanism (MRP) is used by osteopathic practitioners to explain the perceptual characteristics arising from the clinical palpation approach of the human skull. The theoretical apparatus and the same MRP existence is always element of controversy among the scientific community. The results arising from this study highlight the intrinsic capability of ...

Static and Dynamic Deformations of a Reed Valve Immersed in Hydraulic Fluid - new

A. Chaudhuri[1]
[1]Los Alamos National Lab, Los Alamos, NM, USA

Metal reed valves are used for flow rectification in electrohydraulic pumps driven by smart materials at high frequencies but it is difficult to predict their behavior when the surrounding fluid has considerable inertia and viscosity. Simulation of this phenomenon involves modeling the fluid-structure-interaction between the bending of the reed and the flow past the valve. In this model, we use ...

The Spherical Design Algorithm in the Numerical Simulation of Fiber-Reinforced Biological Tissues

M. Carfagna [1], A. Grillo [1],
[1] Dipartimento di Scienze Matematiche, Politecnico di Torino, Italy

The numerical results of the unconfined compression test on a sample of Articular Cartilage (AC) are discussed. AC is modelled as a load-bearing, deformable, fiber-reinforced material filled with an interstitial fluid and comprising statistically oriented collagen fibers, chondrocytes, and a matrix of proteoglycans. A strain energy is assigned to characterize the mechanical behavior of the ...

Multiphysics Analysis of a Photobioreactor

Photo-bioreactors generate biomass by providing a controlled environment for the cultivation of algae due to photosynthesis. Algae cultivation can be controlled through the operating parameters and bioreactor environment to allow for high productivity and the use of systems with large surface-to-volume ratios offers maximum efficiency in the use of light compared to alternative batch systems. ...

随着电力工业的快速发展,母线板作为汇集、分配和传送电能的装置,广泛应用于各个电工领域。由于流过母线板的电流一般较大,其温升发热问题不容忽视。该问题涉及电磁场、温度场、流场及位移场等多个物理场的综合。为了更好地研究其发热散热问题,本文采用 COMSOL Multiphysics® 多物理场直接耦合分析软件,基于有限元理论,在考虑设备几何形状和材料物理特性影响的基础上,对母线板进行三维建模。分别在瞬态和稳态情况下对母线板进行电—热—力耦合场分析,电—热—流耦合场分析,从而研究母线板的温度、电流密度分布规律和由于热膨胀引起的形变大小。最后加入层流,分析在考虑气流冷却效应时,母线板的散热情况,并对仿真结果进行研究分析。
