This study deals with the 3D modeling of a light photocatalytic textile. This process aims to decontaminate industrial effluents such as water with pesticides. The present study describes the implementation of a reactive transport model in a computational fluid dynamics model developed on a Representative Volume Element (RVE) of the textile, i.e. at the microscopic scale. The final ...

At the Fontys University of Applied Physics (The Netherlands) a plasma etcher has been acquired for educational purposes. The machine operates at low power up to 30 Watt and is driven with a magnetic coil at 13.56 MHz. The use of COMSOL Multiphysics software will be discussed to simulate the temperature and mass fractions of the activated and ionized atoms in the gas. The simulations will be ...

An affordable and user friendly digital stethoscope with wireless connectivity is envisioned as an extremely useful tool for heart patients. Our design couples the acoustic pressure from normal stethoscope to a smartphone microphone in an enclosure that is then digitized and sent to doctor for diagnosis.

In the Ball End Magneto rheological Finishing, due to heat generation by thermal agitation the effect of MRF finishing reduces and this ultimately hampers the process of the precision finishing and density of MR fluid too, which therefore results in instability of MR fluid.

Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) techniques are widely used for early detection of defects in engineering components without impairing their future usefulness. Among them, Eddy Current (EC) technique is used for detection of defects in electrically conducting materials and it is known for its high speed inspection and reliability. Conventional EC technique uses sinusoidal excitation and has ...

When the particles in a colloid come close to each other, multiple scattering in ultrasonic beams is no longer negligible and crowded particle effects emerge. The presence of each particle affects the scattering of all others, leading to coupling effects. We investigate the interaction of a range of sizes of particles, arranged periodically or randomly (in medium to high ultrasonic frequency ...

Airborne particles or aerosols are an unstable system with distributed properties among its individual particulate members. Its fundamental property such as particle size, composition, electrical conductivity, magnetic susceptibility, and morphology could change in response to environmental conditions and could be exploited for collection and other applications. Detection and collection of ...

The thermal performance of the dry type power transformers is directly connected to the internal heat source caused by electrical losses. Thus, it is necessary to evaluate the temperatures reached by the transformer core to ensure optimum operation. This paper presents a detailed experimental and numerical study of the heating of a 5 Kva three-phase power transformer operating with linear and ...

Multiple effect evaporators use steam of temperature 120-200°C as a source of heat to evaporate water from solutions. Multiple effect evaporators are widely used by the food, desalination and wastewater treatment industry. In the present study as a proof of concept, multi-physics modeling has been done to demonstrate the phenomenon of evaporation of water with steam. Unit dimensional 2D ...
TRISO（TRistructure ISOtropic）燃料颗粒不仅是在役高温气冷堆燃料元件的核心部件，同时也是下一代用于水冷反应堆的全陶瓷微密封（FCM）耐事故燃料（ATF）元件的关键组成部分。TRISO燃料颗粒由内核部分和包覆层两部分组成，其中内核部分包括球形UO2或UN燃料核芯和包围核芯的疏松热解碳缓冲层，包覆层由内向外依次为内致密热解碳层（IPyC层）、碳化硅层（SiC层）和外致密热解碳层（OPyC层）。基于COMSOL Multiphysics®多物理场耦合有限元软件开发了TRISO燃料颗粒的三维热学-力学-裂变产物扩散耦合分析模型，详细考虑了材料物性参数随温度、快中子注量、各向异性系数和燃耗等因素的变化，热膨胀，燃料核芯的密实和肿胀，Buffer层、IPyC层和OPyC层辐照变形，SiC层、IPyC层和OPyC层辐照蠕变，Buffer层与IPyC层之间的间隙导热 ...
