Microwave sensing and monitoring is very attractive for biological applications because of their sensitivity to water and dielectric contrast. Direct detection of biological structures in microwave frequencies and understanding of the molecular mechanisms of microwave effects is considered as a problem of a great importance. Nowadays, however, microwave technique for localized testing biological ...

In response to continued miniaturization and increased multi-functionality of electronic circuits, the number of integrated circuit (IC) packages on the circuit board continues to increase. As a consequence the operating power density increases and significant increases in the operating temperature of devices result. To maintain operation and long term performance device temperature must be ...

Plasma technology has potential applications in a wide range of areas, such as microwave reflectors/absorbers, material processing, sterilization and chemical neutralization. The knowledge about the fluid behavior in such systems has a central role, since the stability of the flow in the region of the electrical arc is essential for the development of a well-behaved torch. In this work, a ...

This analysis evaluates the importance of the lateral component of flow on the infiltration of water from parallel strip sources of water on the soil surface. Flow from such sources will be two-dimensional, having both vertical and lateral components. Here we examine the effect of the spacing between parallel strip sources and the texture of the soil on the rate of infiltration through a given ...

Fusion devices (tokamaks, stellarators) require hundreds of millions degree Celsius temperature to reach the plasma state when the fusion reactions start to occur. Ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) is a method of energy transfer to the ions in the plasma from electromagnetic radiation having a frequency equal to the ion cyclotron motion frequency in the presence of a magnetic field. Studies ...

This poster describes a simulation of reverse saturable absorption in a solution C_60 molecules using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The optical processes in C_60 can be modeled through a five-level system. The energy states include three levels of the singlet state, coupled to two levels of an excited triplet state. The optical process is modeled with simple rate equations coupled to a ...

The microwave heating and processing of heterogeneous material is usually simulated using a set of coupled PDE equations in an homogeneous medium. Nowadays it is possible to describe more accurately the process with a suitable description of the heterogeneities that is at the grain level. Many authors work with spheres (circles) to represent the grains but it is difficult to achieve an ...

This paper proposes the design of a 3-Degree of Freedom(DoF) motor based on surface acoustic waves in elastic solids. The rotor is propelled by wave fields, for linear and rotational motion respectively, in the stator, that can be steered by the driving signal of the piezoelectric actuators, which are placed on an elastic plate. The next considerations concern the feasibility of the proposed ...

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 ...

In the inspection of steel products with respect to flaws a magnetic flux leakage (MFL) test procedure can be applied. In this procedure a “horseshoe” shaped yoke is used, whose legs are wrapped with coils through which an alternate current with a high frequency (3 kHz) is flowing. Hereby a thin magnetic field is induced near the surface of the test object which leaks from the material if a flaw ...
