Flow Analysis for a Sorghum Brewing Fermentation Process

T.A. Owosina
Simulo Technologies, Lagos, Nigeria

A qualitative flow analysis by numerical simulation of a fermentation process in a sorghum factory is presented. The simulations were done with the Numerical modeling software, COMSOL Multiphysics. Several flow arrangements were considered in the study and as a result, optimized flow configurations were evolved.

Using magnetic resonance images, a model was created of an atherosclerotic plaque in a patient. A fluid-structure interaction analysis was then carried out in order to determine principal stresses in the protective fibrous cap. Results indicate stresses at high blood pressure in excess of 300 kPa, the established cap rupture strength. The technique could prove to be of great value to ...

Wireless Interaction of Neighboring Two Arm Archimedes Spiral Coils in the RF Electromagnet Range

A. Kalinowski[1]
[1]Naval Undersea Warfare Center/ Division Newport, Newport, RI, USA

The paper addresses a class of problems for modeling and consequently simulating the electromagnetic field radiation pattern from two arms Archimedes spiral coils. The frequency spatial wavelengths relative to the coil dimensions are in a range where the electromagnetic Maxwell’s equations are solved numerically via the RF Module of COMSOL ...

Finite Element Analysis of an Enzymatic Biofuel Cell: The Orientations of a chip inside a blood artery

C. Wang[1], Y. Parikh[1], Y. Song[1], and J. Yang[1]
[1]Mechanical & Materials Science Engineering, Florida International University, Miami, Florida, USA

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 ...

This paper describes a type of didactic material used when teaching electromagnetism. The purpose is to guide the students to verify the results of a Finite Element (FE) simulation using those obtained analytically. This procedure has shown to be of great help during their learning of the FE method. The example in this paper uses a 2D analytical method to estimate the magnetic field generated by ...

Fast Computation of Capacitance Matrix and Potential Distribution for Multiconductor in Non-Homogenous Multilayered Dielectric Media

S.M. Musa[1], and M.N.O. Sadiku[1]

[1]Prairie View A&M University Networking Academy, Prairie View, Texas, USA

This paper presents the fast computational and modeling of multiconductor transmission lines interconnect in non-homogenous multilayered dielectric media using the finite element method (FEM). We illustrate the potential distribution of the multiconductor transmission lines for the models and their solution time. We compared some of our results of computing the capacitance matrix with method of ...

Untersuchung der Polarisationseigenschaften einer mikrostrukturierten optischen Faser unter dem Einfluss äußerer Belastung

A. Unger[1], and K.H. Witte[2]
[1] FH-Wiesbaden, Fachbereich Physikalische Technik, Rüsselsheim;
[2] FH-Wiesbaden, Fachbereich Elektrotechnik, Rüsselsheim

Mit Hilfe des Softwareprogramms COMSOL zur Modellierung physikalischer Vorgänge wurden die Polarisationseigenschaften einer mikrostrukturierten Singlemodefaser untersucht. Ausgangspunkt der Simulationen waren experimentelle Untersuchungen, nach denen diese Faser eine ungewöhnlich starke Doppelbrechung aufwies. Die Doppelbrechung der Faser und damit ihre Fähigkeit zur Polarisationserhaltung ...

Thermo-fluid-dynamic evaluation of a microsystem to analyse radioactive solutions

G. Janssens-Maenhout
Joint Research Centre Ispra
Ispra, Italy

It has become common place to use micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of solutions. However, such microchips have not yet been applied to the analysis of radioactive solutions, for the purpose of nuclear safeguards, in the nuclear reprocessing industry. Implementing MEMS in this area results in a reduced volume of the sample to be analysed. This has many ...

The pianistic touch: FEMLAB modeling of a grand piano action

Riccardo Ferrari
University of Trieste
Trieste, Italy

In this presentation we will show how to partially model a grand piano action. Then we will apply different touches to this virtual action and try to hear any difference. --------------------------------- Riccardo Ferrari was one of the keynote speakers at the COMSOL User's Conference, fall 2005 in Milano

5Dept. of Cardio-Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, and Clinical Institute, Aarhus University Hospital Skejby, Aarhus, Denmark

Using Computational Fluid Dynamics, different geometries of side-to-side a-v fistulas for hemodialysis access are evaluated. We created five CAD-models of fistulas with the length of the anastomosis varying from 5 to 15 mm. The five models were analyzed and evaluated using the k-ε turbulence application mode in COMSOL Multiphysics to determine if an optimal length of anastomosis exists. ...
