A gate-all-around MOSFET consists of a nanowire with a gate electrode wrapped around the circumference. Since the entire nanowire forms the channel, this configuration provides the best possible electrostatic control of the channel and offers a good candidate for the miniaturization of MOSFETs. This model analyzes a silicon nanowire gate-all-around device, with different trap densities at the ...
This model demonstrates the use of optical tracing for studying optically large gradient-index structures with anisotropic optical properties. Additionally, the model introduces a smoothing technique for handling discontinuities of refractive index on curved surfaces, which are typical in conventional optical devices such as lenses.
A frame with a central cutout is subjected to a random load consisting of 1000 load events. The external load, recorded using three strain gauges, is simulated using superposition of three unit loads. The stress state around the cutout is obtained with the Rainflow cycle counting algorithm. The damage is estimated using the Palmgren-Miner linear damage rule.
This tutorial example models the currents and the concentration of dissolved metal ions in a battery (corrosion cell) made from an orange and two metal nails. This type of battery is commonly used in chemistry lessons. Instead of an orange, lemons or potatoes can also be used.
This model simulates a simple three-dimensional axisymmetric Helmholtz resonator, a classic acoustics model of a resonating circuit with a known theoretical solution. The idealized version considered here consists of a tube and a closed volume in series which are exposed to a pulsatile pressure. Real-world phenomena explained by the resonator include amongst others the resonance from blowing ...
For a perfectly mixed reactor with a predefined constant temperature, the reacting system’s energy balance is not needed to describe the system behavior. The behavior is defined as the composition and the production or consumption of species over time. Furthermore, because the reactor is perfectly mixed, the Reaction Engineering interface can also set up a model even though it has no ...
The NIST GEC CCP reactor provides a platform for studying capacitively coupled plasmas. Even the simplest plasma models are quite involved so a 1D example helps in understanding the physics without excessive CPU time. The problem has no steady-state solution, although a periodic steady-state solution is reached after a suitable number of RF cycles (usually >1000).
This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in Pro/ENGINEER by using the LiveLink interface.
A Rossler attractor is a system of three non-linear, ordinary differential equations. The Rossler attractor is similar in nature to the Lorenz attractor. The non-linear equations can be solved in COMSOL by conveniently using the Massless formulation available in the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface.
This is a model of the secondary current distribution in a zinc electrowinning cell. The model investigates the impact on the current distribution when changing the electrode alignment in a parametric study. The geometry is in 2D.
