A General Method for Solving Equations - The Dynamical Functional Particle Method

M. Gulliksson, and S. Edvardsson
Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall, Sweden

Given any equation L(u)=0, e.g. a partial differential equation, it can be considered to be the stationary solution of a time dependent equation (in fact, time need only to be fictitious time not real time). Our approach is to choose the time dependence in analogy with an oscillating particle system including damping in order to damp out the time derivatives and attain a stationary solution ...

Design Of A Flat Membrane Module For Fouling And Permselectivity Studies

J.M. Gozalvez-Zafrilla, and A. Santafe-Moros
Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain

Flat membrane modules are widely used to study the membrane performance at the laboratory which is influenced by pressure and velocity. Most modules designed for laboratory studies have high pressure drop and abrupt changes of flow direction what yield to lack of uniform flow and pressure uncertainty over the membrane surface. With the aim to minimize these drawbacks, we developed a new module ...

The Effect of Cartilaginous Rings on Deposition by Convection, Brownian Diffusion and Electrostatics

H. Akerstedt
Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, Sweden

This paper presents a numerical study of the deposition of spherical charged nanoparticles caused by convection and Brownian diffusion in a pipe with a cartilaginous ring structure. The model is supposed to describe deposition of charged particles in the upper generations of the tracheobronchial tree of the human lung. The upper airways are characterized by a certain wall structure called ...

A Methodology For The Simulation Of MEMS Spiral Inductances Used As Magnetic Sensors

S. Druart, D. Flandre, and L.A. Francis
Université catholique de Louvain - ICTEAM, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

In this paper, a methodology to simulate the electric behavior of spiral inductances is presented and discussed. All the methodology is built with the COMSOL software used with the Matlab scripting interface and then allows performing fully parameterized simulations. The program architecture is explained and is used to simulate two applications. The first calculates the voltage induced by an ...

For Hydrogen production purpose from bio-ethanol, IFP set up a pilot reactor that can work at high temperature (1000°C) and high pressure (20 bar). Experiments show that this reactor has a specific thermal behavior that should be modeled in addition to chemical and hydrodynamics to understand and optimize hydrogen production. The multiphysics simulator has been defined in COMSOL and the ...

Comparative Study of an Open Waveguide.Application to Deconvolution of a Magnetic Probe in Near-Field Zone

A. Saghir, J.W. Tao, and C. Avram
INP, Laplace site Enseeiht, Toulouse, France

We present here our work on deconvolution of a magnetic probe to mesure electromagnetic emissions in near-field zone. To achieve this work,we have chosen a rectangular waveguide (WR90) as a radiating structure.Theoritical near-field is simulated using a FEM software (COMSOL) and also obtained by using a program based on transverse operator method (TOM), that lead to a very good field ...

Absorbing Boundary Domain for CSEM 3D Modeling

J. Park[1], T.I. Bjørnarå[1], and B.A. Farrelly [2]
[1]Norwegian Geotechnical Institute(NGI), Oslo, Norway
[2]MultiField Geophysics AS, Norway

In the study, we present an efficient absorbing boundary domain technique whose main application is the 3D finite element (FE) modelling of the so-called controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) data, collected for the geophysical exploration. The developed technique is based on the real-value exponentially-stretched coordinates. We have implemented the developed technique using the user ...

Numerical Inversion of Surface Deformation at Long Valley Caldera (California) By Using 3D Mechanical Models

S. Pepe, P. Tizzani, and A. Manconi
IREA-CNR, Napoli, Italy

We use 3D numerical models to analyze the ground deformation observed at Long Valley Caldera (LVC) between 1992 and 2000 via space-based geodetic techniques. More specifically, we implement a complex model that includes the topography and the material heterogeneities information of LVC. The 3D heterogeneous models are implemented of COMSOL models in a Genetic Algorithm optimization to constrain ...

Porous membranes with pore sizes in the micrometer scale are required in many micro systems dedicated to biological and chemical applications. If their thickness is in the same dimension like the pore diameter they are called microsieves. On the one hand, a thin membrane guarantees a small flow resistance but on the other hand the mechanical strength is reduced. We developed a process which ...

Computer Simulation Of Haematopoietic Stem Cells Migration Using COMSOL Multiphysics

G. Bencheva
Institute for information and communication technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria

Various haematological diseases, including leukaemia, are characterized by abnormal production of particular blood cells. Two important properties of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are used in their therapy, namely: a) rapid migratory activity and ability to \'\'home\'\' to their niche in the bone marrow; b) high self-renewal and differentiation capacity, responsible for the production and ...
