[1]Università di Padova, Dipartimento di Ingegneria Industriale, Padova, Italy

Computer simulation is mandatory for the optimization of electromagnetic devices. Here we concentrate on two classes of devices operating in the MHz and GHz range, namely microwave ovens and TEM cells for electromagnetic compatibility testing. In particular we concentrate on the issue that numerical results are usually different from the experimental ones and this can be due, among others ...

Multiphysics Simulations in Automotive Product Development: Concept and Beyond


Matthias Richwin joined KOSTAL, a worldwide automotive first-tier supplier, in 2003 where he started working on the design of optical sensor systems. In 2007 he took over responsibility for simulation methods in the series product development and since then leads the simulation engineering group. Besides his interest in the haptics of car-driver interfaces, his main focus is currently on ...

This work focuses on the numerical analysis conducted on the prototype sensor for the measurement of highly concentrated radiative heat fluxes, based on an inverse heat transfer method, realized at the ENEA Portici Research Center in collaboration with the DETEC department of the University of Naples Federico II. The estimates of highly concentrated radiative heat fluxes on the target surface of ...

Complex K-Bands Calculation for Plasmonic Crystal Slabs by Means of Weak Formulation of Helmholtz's Eigenvalue Equation

G. Parisi[1], P. Zilio[1], F. Romanato[1]
[1]University of Padova, Padova, Italy

We present a Finite Element Method (FEM) to calculate the complex valued k(?) dispersion curves of a photonic crystal slab in presence of both dispersive and lossy materials. In particular the method can be exploited to study plasmonic crystal slabs. We adopt Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs) in order to truncate the open boundaries of the model, including their related anisotropic permittivity ...

This paper deals with an integrated numerical and experimental analysis work aiming at the investigation of the thermal distribution inside an industrial furnace built for metal materials treatments. The main goal of the research is to find the geometrical and/or functional parameters responsible for a not homogeneous thermal distribution inside the internal volume of the furnace. During the ...

[3]State Key Laboratory of Applied Optics, Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Changchun, Jilin, China

Electric Field Assisted Capillarity (EFAC) is a novel technique for the fabrication of hollow polymer microstructures. It has advantages over current methods as it is a single step process. Hollow microstructures have many uses in industry from microchannels and microcapsules in BioMEMS to fibre-optical waveguides. It makes use of the dielectric properties of polymers combined with a heavily ...

Design of a Pressure Sensor to Monitor Teeth Grinding

[1]Department of Electrical Engineering, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL, USA
[2]Department of Restorative Dental Sciences, College of Dentistry, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL USA

Studying teeth grinding behavior and other oral conditions requires the ability to accurately measure the pressure on the teeth. Placing a sensor in the mouth requires small size devices with powering and measurement techniques that do not hinder the normal life of the patient. To meet these requirements, we designed, using COMSOL, a small, easy to read MEMS capacitive force sensor, with ...

Simulation of Differential Ion Mobility (DMS) Principle Coupled with Mass Spectrometry in Atmospheric Pressure

Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique widely used in the scientific community to determine chemical composition of sample compounds. Typically, mass spectrometers perform their analysis under vacuum conditions, though atmospheric pressure mass spectrometers are becoming more prevalent. With the development of atmospheric pressure mass spectrometers, techniques such as FAIMS (Field ...

The Effects of the Electrical Double Layer on Giant Ionic Currents through Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes

Electrofluidic transport through a single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) is enhanced by electroosmosis. Electroosmosis is made possible in these devices by the combination of a large slip length within SWCNTs and the interfacial potential at the solution/nanotube interface. A computational model of a SWCNT device was developed using COMSOL Multiphysics to investigate the complete electrical ...

Thermal Model for Single Discharge EDM Process Using COMSOL Multiphysics

[2]Institute for Process Tools and Manufacturing (IWF), Zurich, Switzerland

Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) is a non-conventional process used for machining electrically conducting materials. In die sink-EDM, sparks are generated between tool and workpiece resulting in heating of both electrode surfaces and creating a melt pool of metal which leads to generation of new surfaces on cooling. Physical processes involved in electric discharge and material removal are ...
