This work aims to determine optimized configuration using COMSOL Multiphysics® for a class of transducers. Two types of capacitive sensors needed for monitoring and control in agriculture are investigated: a rain sensor and a soil humidity sensor. COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to test various configurations for both transducers, like the number of teeth in the comb, the depth of the teeth, the ...

Corrugated board is produced on a machine where the corrugated medium is glued between two flat paper surfaces, the liners. The board is cut into sheets and stored in a stack until suitable moisture content has been reached. The sheets are then cut and creased into blanks for the production of boxes and other products. If the moisture content is too high, there is a risk for cutting problems in ...

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 ...

최근의 수치모델링 연구들은 맨틀 플룸(mantle plume)이 배호(back-arc)지역의 분지 및 산맥(basin and range)과 유사한 지구조를 형성시키는 성인임을 제시하였다. 섭입 슬랩 후퇴(slab roll-back) 현상에 의해 지각에 가해지는 인장력과 지각 아래로부터 상승하는 뜨거운 맨틀 플룸으로 인한 지각 강도 감소가 더해져 배호 지역에 분지를 형성시킨다는 것이다. 이처럼 분지 형성 작용에 있어 맨틀 플룸의 역할이 중요해짐에 따라, 수치모델링의 필요성이 커지고 있기 때문에 초기 연구로써 우리는 2차원 및 3차원의 맨틀 플룸 수치모델링을 ...

Gas lubricated bearing has been developed for high accuracy in precision machines and equipments. Gas lubricated bearings are mainly two types: aerostatic bearings, which require a feed of pressurized gas for their operation, and aerodynamic bearings, which generate their own internal pressure differentials. The latter generate this pressure by the action of simultaneously shearing and ...

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 ...

High intensity discharge lamps can experience flickering and even destruction, when operated at high frequency alternating current. The cause of these problems has been identified as acoustic resonances inside the lamp’s are tube. Here, a finite element approach for the calculation of the acoustic response function is described. The developed model does not include the plasma dynamics.

Magnetorheological Elastomers (MREs) are a composite that consist of magnetic micrometer sized particles suspended within rubber matrix filler. By placing this material within an external magnetic field during the rubber curing process, the poles of the particles are forced to align and form chains of particles within the matrix. These chains cause the MRE to change its stiffness properties when ...

In the paper distributed parameter system models in the form of lumped-input/distributed-output systems are introduced and modeling of temperature fields of the die in the benchmark casting plant is presented. Temperature fields were modeled and studied using a finite element method based software package COMSOL Multiphysics and numerical models in the form of a lumped-input/distributed-output ...
