Thermal Analysis of Joule Heated Ceramic Melter

P. Goyal, V. Verma, R.K. Singh, and K.K. Vaze
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

High level radioactive waste (HLW) generated by nuclear fuel cycle is immobilized using glass melters. In Glass melters such as Joule Heated Ceramic Melter (JHCM) electrodes immersed in the glass generates heat by the joule heating due to electric current passing between electrodes through glass. For melter performance it is required to evlaute temperature distribution in the melter. Thermal ...

The Huygens Atmospheric Structure Instrument (HASI) was designed to characterize the physical properties of the lower atmosphere and surface of Titan, the planet-size moon of Saturn. The Relaxation Probe (RP) sensor on the Huygens probe, determined the electrical conductivity in the lower atmosphere of Titan, from 140 km to 40 km. It was suspected that at an altitude above 100km, the booms ...

Expanding Your Materials Horizons

R.W. Pryor
Pryor Knowledge Systems, Inc., Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA

The concept of virtual prototyping can be found linked to many different keywords in the literature: modeling, look-ahead problem solving, etc. This poster paper briefly discusses the potential real benefits that can be realized through pre-build cost savings, minimization of the number of prototype builds, and post-build problem avoidance for physical prototypes and production products. Relative ...

The detection and identification of the location of a sound source is commonly done using arrays of microphones. A recent new alternative approach has been proposed which involves the use of continuous structures, such as beams or plates, as acoustic wave sensors. The sound wave impinging on the surface of the structure causes it to vibrate and the measured surface displacements can then be used ...

Control Synthesis for Distributed Parameter Systems Modeled by FEM in COMSOL Multiphysics

C. Belavý, G. Hulkó, P. Buček, and S. Lel'o
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Bratislava, Slovakia

Technological processes in the engineering practice from point of view of systems and control theory are frequently in the form of distributed parameter systems (DPS). Techniques of FEM based modeling and design of control synthesis methods of DPS which is acceptable for various technological processes, will be demonstrated on modeling and control of temperature fields of the glass melting ...

Optimisation Of Filament Geometry For Gas Sensor Application

S. Gidon, M. Brun, and S. Nicoletti
CEA Minatec, Optronic Department, Grenoble, France

Monitoring of indoor CO2 concentration is of particular interest to detect room occupancy in order to optimise power consumptions of building. One technological approach is to use optical detection using specific absorption lines of CO2 molecules in the infrared domain close to 4.2 μm. Key features for a wider use in public and private buildings are power consumption and price. Such optical ...

Physical and FEM Simulation of Microprobe Insertion into Brain Tissue

A. Eed Olamat, U. Hofmann, B. Pohl, and N. Nkemasong
University of Lübeck, Institute for Signal Processing, Lübeck, Germany

In order to investigate the implantation of microprobes into brain tissue, we developed a finite-element and a physical model to replace real biological tissue for mechanical testing. Penetrating forces of a tungsten indenter into a layered structure was investigated with different indentation speeds. Numerical and physical model are in good correspondence to each other and reproduce measured ...

Modelling and Experimental Validation Possibilities of Heat Transfer Room Model

M. Zalesak, and V. Gerlich
Tomas Bata University in Zlin, Zlin, Czech Republic

The study presents first authors experience with COMSOL Multiphysics environment used as a possible modeling tool of thermal building behavior. The idea of the project was to gain thermal response to changed boundary conditions with the application of COMSOL environment as a modeling tool for 3D buildings or 3D building segments. The room as building segment was implemented in the COMSOL ...

Equation-Based Modeling: The Structural Contact Problem Solved by The Velocity Approach

O. Toscanelli, and V. Colla
Scuola Superiore S. Anna, Pisa, Italy

The contact between infinitely rigid body and deformable part is studied using the velocity as a dependent variable. A simple forging case is evaluated. The velocity approach is realized by means of using COMSOL with the Equation-Based Modeling. The contact model evaluated in this work is suitable to model the forging process. For a given mesh and element it is possible to choose the optimum ...
