We present here how we have implemented the « RL model » ([RLT92]) in the multiphysic software FEMLAB. Beam in traction, a plate in pure shear, in proportional bitraction have been modelling. These studies will allow building some non linear "super-element" able to design composite structure, for dynamical studies with the built-in MATLAB interface.

As an important part of the smart/intelligent structures, the composite plate with piezoelectric-ceramics (PZT) patches embedded has numerous values in many engineering applications, such as: aerospace, automotive, civil and mechanical engineering. A composite thin plate excited by PZT actuators is considered in this work. To describe the dynamic response of the quadrate plate clamped at its ...

As biologists uncover the structural and functional complexity of living organisms, it is increasingly clear that mathematical models are needed to synthesize experimental data and predict biological responses to external stimuli. Bioengineers are well-suited to develop such models and to add mechanics, fluid flow and other physical cues to the understanding of biological structure and ...

We are investigating the feasibility of using FEMLAB as an integral part of the educational experience of chemical engineering students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Our current practices and immediate plans for using FEMLAB in teaching include homework and projects in a graduate course, simulations of unit operations laboratory experiments for use as pre-lab preparations for actual lab ...

At Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute we have altered our undergraduate and graduate curricula so that we now teach transport phenomena (heat, mass, momentum, charge) in a holistic manner rather than as discrete courses. The traditional pencil-papercalculator toolset was found lacking and so we turned to FEMLAB® as a teaching tool to help enhance student understanding. In this paper, I will ...

Unter Elektrotechnikausbildung ist in diesem Papier die Hochschulausbildung und insbeson-dere die in den Fächern Allgemeine Elektrotechnik und Theoretische Elektrotechnik zu ver-stehen. Üblicherweise wird das Gebäude der Elektrotechnik auf den Erfahrungssätzen des Strömungs-, elektrostatischen und magnetischen Feldes aufgebaut. Zur Motivation und Fes-tigung des Wissens werden dann in den ...

This talk demonstrates the success in teaching chemical engineering undergraduates to use COMSOL Multiphysics (FEMLAB) to solve realistic problems in a project format. Undergraduates have been creative and solved problems much more difficult than those in their textbooks, thus gaining a deeper understanding of transport processes. Illustrations are also given how they check to see they’ve ...

The author is integrating a suite of software tools for modeling the scattering of acoustic beams (sonar) from undersea targets (mines) that may be buried or partially buried in the sedimentary ocean bottom in littoral (shallow water) environments. This is a Multiphysics problem involving acoustic waves in the water, acoustic or poro-elastic waves in the sediment, and both elastic and acoustic ...
