Volcanic eruptions are often preceded by periods of unrest, where the behavior of the volcano deviates from a background level towards one of increasing concern . Understanding what causes and contributes to unrest is a key challenge in volcanology today, influencing risk mitigation and hazard forecasting. Deformation of the volcanic edifice is one such indicator of unrest owing to a ...

Solders are typically used to join similar or dissimilar metals, referred to as substrates. In some cases solders are also used to join completely different classes of materials. For example, a joint between copper busbar and silicon solar cell represents a set of dissimilar substrates. In the formation of a solder-substrate couple, the system must have been subjected to at least a single ...

This paper presents the results of modeling of a microreactor with three inputs geometry (or crow's-feet), in relation to distributions of velocities and concentrations. The objective of this work is the study of this kind of geometry with relation to fluid dynamics behavior, improving the knowledge of microfluidics and microreactors projects. These numerical responses allow conclusions about ...

COMSOL Multiphysics® software has been used in computational geodynamics for years. Because very high pressure in the mantle even significantly compressed the mantle up to ~40%, it is crucial to consider the mantle compressibility in computational geodynamics. COMSOL Multiphysics allows consideration of mantle compressibility using the CFD Module and I benchmarked COMSOL Multiphysics using ...

Our laboratory is currently leading the design and the manufacture of a novel device that allows NMR spectroscopy to be cooled down to cryogenics temperature (in the 10-100 K range). The system features a sample-holder that rotates at very high frequencies (f >10 kHz). Two aerostatics gas-bearings, allows this sample holder to be suspended in its chamber thanks to a Helium flow. A second Helium ...

One of the major challenges in biology concerns the integration of data across length and time scales into a consistent framework: how do macroscopic properties and functionalities arise from the molecular regulatory networks and how do they evolve? A deeper understanding of morphogenesis and organogenesis in particular is required to advance tissue engineering. Recent advancements in 3D ...

In general, seamount magnetic modeling assumes uniform magnetization for the entire construct. The following geologic obervations are often not considered: 1. The internal structure composed of multiple volcanic layers, and 2. Remanent magnetization gained during the magnetic polarity reversals. In this study, we build synthetic models based on these geological building processes of seamounts. ...

We use finite elements simulations in order to study the fluid flow behavior in a chamber of a preconcentrator. We realized that most part of the fluid does not affect our preconcentrator because it is going out the chamber at high distance above it and parallel to the preconcentrator. So, we are wasting most part of our fluid and we need a lot of time to have a good concentrator factor. We ...

A small particle or a nano-sized object placed in a liquid is subject to random collisions with solvent molecules. The resulting erratic movement of the object is known as Brownian motion, which, in nature, cannot be used to any practical advantage both in natural systems (such as biomolecular motors) or by artificial devices. If energy is supplied by external source or by chemical reactions, ...

Output performance of an implantable enzymatic biofuel cell (EBFC) with three- dimensional highly dense micro-electrode arrays has been simulated with a finite element analysis approach. The purpose of this research is to optimize the orientation of this EBFC chip inside a blood artery such that the mass transport of glucose around all the micro-electrodes can be improved and hence output ...
