Comparison of Different Passive Oil-Water Mixing Schemes in a Flow Loop - new

A. Chaudhuri[1]
[1]Materials Synthesis & Integrated Devices, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, USA

Oil and water are immiscible fluids and they tend to separate very easily when introduced into a flow stream from two different sources in a flow loop. This model studies the development of mixture volume fraction in an oil-water-flow loop with 3 different passive mixing schemes: (i) blind-T, (ii) check valve, and (iii) static mixer. Each device produces different levels of mixture homogeneity ...

Can we use Aquifers to Monitor Magma Chambers? Using COMSOL Multiphysics® to Investigate Subsurface Strain Changes and Their Effect on Hydrological Systems - new

K. Strehlow[1], J. Gottsmann[1], A. Rust[1]
[1]University of Bristol, Bristol, UK

Groundwater-bearing geological layers respond to and modify the surface expressions of magmatic activity, and they can also become agents of volcanic unrest themselves. Interpretations of unrest signals as groundwater responses to changes in the magmatic system can be found for many volcanoes and include a wide range of phenomena and suggested processes to explain them (e.g., Newhall et al., ...

Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® for IAQ Monitoring in Cleanrooms - new

[2]Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Firenze, Firenze, Italy

High levels of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) in Operating Theatres (OT) is an important issue in order to contribute in prevention of Surgical Site Infections (SSI). Despite of specific plant layouts are applied for OT ventilation (e.g. unidirectional flow), the effective use conditions can heavily modify the design microclimate and air quality levels. Medical staff presence and movements and sliding ...

Simulation of Air Flow Through Ventilation Ducts - new

E. Dalsryd[1]
[1]KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

In this report I study the airflow through ventilation ducts. By numerical simulation, the so-called k-factor has been estimated. The k-factor is the quotient of the airflow volume and the square root of the pressure drop over the duct. A two dimensional axial symmetric model has been used to simulate an iris damper connected to a straight pipe. A three dimensional model has been used to ...

MEMS Based Tactile Sensors for Robotic Surgery

V. Nivethitha[1], S. P. Rakavi[1], K. C. Devi[1]
[1]PSG College Of Technology, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

In this work, a piezoelectric tactile sensor will be designed and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The sensor is designed in order to assess the pressure exerted on the human body while the robotic surgery is performed. The sensor consists of a rigid and compliant cylindrical element. A circular PDMS (Polydimethylsiloxane) film is sandwiched between the rigid cylinder and the base plate to ...

Modeling and Simulation of High Sensitivity CMOS Pressure Sensor Using Free Boundary Circular Diaphragm Embedded on Ring Channel Shaped MOSFET

S. Joy[1], T. Tom[1]
[1]Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi, Kerala, India

Sensors have diverse applications ranging from medical field to space explorations. They convert physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, humidity etc: - into an electrical output. The discovery of piezoresistivity property of silicon and germanium led to miniaturization of pressure sensors. Improvement in the sensitivity is the major factor to be considered while designing pressure ...

Marine Vibrator Bubble Source Simulation and Testing

A. K. Morozov [1],
[1] Teledyne Marine Systems, North Falmouth, MA, USA

Marine Vibrators are a coherent type of sound source, which can be quieter and less harmful for marine habitants than traditional air-gun technology. Such source gives clearer, more precise and higher resolution imaging of the bottom properties due to the coherent signal and streamer array processing. Teledyne Marine Systems is developing a coherent seismic marine sound source technology ...

Microscale Simulations of Catalyst Deactivation During Gas-Phase Upgrading of Biomass Pyrolysis Vapors

P. N. Ciesielski [1], D. Robichaud [2], B. Donohoe [1], M. Nimlos [2],
[1] Biosciences Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, CO, USA
[2] National Bioenergy Center, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, CO, USA

Catalytic fast pyrolysis is a process by which biomass may be converted into liquid hydrocarbon transportation fuels and chemical co-products that are alternative to their petroleum-derived counterparts. Chemical compounds in raw pyrolysis vapor have high oxygen content and therefore must be deoxygenated in order to meet specifications for hydrocarbon fuels. One strategy to accomplish this is ...

Modelagem Computacional de Difusores para Microbombas

A. G. S. Barreto Neto [1], A. M. N. Lima [2], C. S. Moreira [1],
[1] Instituto Federal de Ciência e Tecnologia - IFPB, João Pessoa, PB, Brasil
[2] Universidade Federal de Campina Grande - UFCG, Campina Grande, PB, Brasil

Este trabalho trata do dimensionamento da estrutura bocal/difusor utilizando a simulação computacional com fronteira móvel. Esse tipo de simulação contempla toda estrutura da bomba, isto é, câmara de bombeamento, difusor e área de dispersão de fluxo, de modo a contabilizar o refluxo em função da estrutura, possibilitando um projeto mais realísticos da estrutura.

The Visualization of Ocean Movement in Southern Ocean

M. M. Saidi [1]
[1] Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Malaysia

Ocean is the cornerstone in Earth’s system because the surface of the Earth is covered by ocean about 71%. Ocean also holds approximate 97% of the Earth’s water. Ocean is always moving and continuous. This study is focusing on the ocean movement in Southern Ocean which is located in the southernmost of the Earth. It can be called as Antarctica Ocean because it consists of the waters extending ...
