The aim of this work was to simulate the electro-thermal behavior of a micro-hotplate used as a gas sensor, in order to compare the obtained results with a real structure. The structure has been designed in 3D and a stationary and a temporal study has been realized.

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 ...

Electron beam has a wide range of applications in the material processing and joining techniques. Apart from that, it has also been utilized to simulate steady as well as transient fusion reactor relevant heat loads. Transient heat load events spontaneously occur in the fusion reactor. Several hundred megawatt of power is dumped upon the plasma facing material surfaces for a very short ...

The main purpose of SPIDER (Source for the Production of Ions of Deuterium Extracted from RF plasma) test facility is the investigation and optimization of a negative ion beam produced by the full size ion source for ITER NBIs (Neutral Beam Injectors). Thermal, transient, non-linear FE (Finite Element) analyses and also electrostatic analysis have been performed as a feasibility study, to ...

The crystal growth industry uses high temperature processes. To improve production efficiency, a good knowledge of thermal effects is necessary. We show in this article a methodology to get reliable data by mixing simplified models, sensitivity studies and parameters adjustments. The precision is improved by comparison with experimental measurements.

Steam drum in a nuclear power plant is one of the important components of Primary Heat Transport (PHT) system where steam is separated from the steam water mixture. Steam water mixture emanating from the reactor core is separated in a steam drum. Separated steam goes to the turbine whereas separated water after mixing with incoming feed water returns to the reactor. The entire feed water flow is ...

A Dutch firm manufactures a mounting system to fasten roof workmen to the roof of a flat roof building to prevent them from falling down from the roof. The system is mounted to the flat roof afterwards, i.e. after the completion of the thermal insulated roof. Because of the mechanical strength and stiffness properties of the system, it is manufactured using (stainless) steel. The steel, ...

This paper presents a preliminary analysis of the coupled thermo-hydrodynamics and neutronics of circulating nuclear fuel systems in a nuclear reactor that adopts a molten salt mixture. This flows up through channels in a graphite moderated core and plays the role of both heat generator and coolant. A strongly coupled system is needed since the velocity pattern is affected by the neutron ...

A two dimensional instationary analysis of the conjugate optical-thermal fields induced in a multilayer thin film structure on a glass substrate by a moving Gaussian laser source is carried out numerically in order to compare back and front laser treatment processes. COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4 code has been adopted to solve the combined thermal and electromagnetic problem in order to compare the two ...
