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 ...

The soil ionization is an important phenomenon to be considered in the analysis of grounding electric systems. In this way, this work has proposed a procedure that allows modeling grounding systems with COMSOL Multiphysics and MATLAB® taking into account the soil ionization effects according to the Dynamic and Energy Balance models. Comparisons between calculated results and those reported in ...

It is desired to design a photobioreactor for the production of voluminous samples of microalgae for lipid quantification. The reactor should provide good growing conditions even with periodic withdrawal of samples. It also should be compact for better use of laboratory space. Therefore, a photobioreactor with concentric tubes was modeled to verify the circulation of the culture medium. The ...

Motion of Uncharged Particles in Electroosmotic Flow through a Wavy Cylindrical Channel

A finite element model is employed to describe the electric potential distribution and electroosmotic flow field inside a wavy cylindrical channel. The model uses coupled Laplace and Poisson-Boltzmann to evaluate the electric potential distribution inside the channel. It also contains continuity and Navier–Stokes equations for the solution of fluid flow. A particle trajectory model was ...

Application of System Identification Methods to Implement COMSOL Models into External Simulation Environments

A.W.M. van Schijndel[1] and M. Gontikaki[1]

[1]Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Full coupling of distributed parameter models, like COMSOL, with the lumped models often lead to very time-consuming simulation duration times. In order to improve the speed of the simulations, the idea of using system identification methods to implement the distributed parameters models of COMSOL into external simulation environments, is explored. It is concluded that the system identification ...

We present a simplified model of biological cells including a first layer, corresponding to the membrane and the actin cortex and a second one, representing the cell cytoplasm. The membraneactin ensemble is governed by the Navier equations while the cytoplasm is assimilated to a viscous fluid, described by the Navier-Stokes system. At the inner boundary, between the cortex and the cytoplasm, ...

COMSOL Multiphysics' Utility in a Medical Device Company: Research and Development

Kalafut, J.F.
MEDRAD Innovations, One MEDRAD Drive, Indianola

This talk will highlight, through several case studies, COMSOL Multiphysics' utility as a design tool, system analysis tool, and an aid in applied research throughout MEDRAD's product development cycle (the integrated-Product Development Process™), from applied research to product validation. Specific examples shall include the analysis of a shielding design to prevent spurious interference ...

Finite Element Simulation of the Oscillatory Flow in a Channel with the Heat Transfer through a Hot Bump

Lee, Y.
Dep. of Engineering Sciences, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

The present numerical simulation investigates the time-dependent flow driven by the oscillatory pressure gradient in the streamwise direction. An attempt was made to obtain the flow field that is initially stationary and evolves to the purely oscillatory flow with zero mean velocity, and the results after several cycles of oscillation are compared with the long-time analytical solution in the ...
