This work is aimed to demonstrate how variation of geometries' parameters would affect the fluid loading effect in water using COMSOL Multiphysics and compared with analytical data. When a structure is placed in water, the interaction between the water and the structure plays an important role in determining the amount of fluid loading mass. The calculated results of added mass of the common ...

The subject of the interactions between electromagnetic (EM) fields and living cells is a strong issue for several decades . Large number of works have been done to study the EM field penetration and inner induced currents in living microorganisms. Relevant information to be collected deals with level and frequency of the EM signal that may affect the development of the considered cells. The ...

Aqueous based copper electroplating seems the most reliable, flexible, cost effective method to create a copper layer on stainless steel coupler devices; this however, doesn’t imply a straightforward application, as subcomponents geometry is complex and tolerances are tight. At CERN, two existing copper electroplating baths were tested to evaluate the feasibility of plating three couplers ...

In the nuclear fuel cycle, fluorine is produced by the electrolysis of the molten salt KF-2HF. It is a complex process to study since hydrofluoric acid and fluorine are hazardous and highly corrosive. A 3D-model of a lab-scale fluorine electrolysis cell has been developed to increase our understanding of this process, using the electric currents and the bubbly flow interfaces to simulate the ...

The high power of X-ray beam delivered by synchrotrons and free electron lasers, up to 240 W/mm2, requires heat load management solutions to obtain the best performance from the optical elements which will shape the beam for its use in the experimental stations . One solution is the use of gas attenuators: a tube filled with an inert gas, usually Argon or Krypton, is placed between X-ray ...

Adaptive Optics is common sense, since many people use digital cameras with electromechanical iris actors on elastic autofocus lenses. This project tries to create a COMSOL Multiphysics based mathematical model of adaptive optics with electrostatically induced deformation of dielectric gels. Upper and lower sides of a lens (dielectric conductive gel) are coated by transparent conductive films, i ...

The ability to artificially produce silk fibers has great commercial, industrial and scientific implications. Much has been made of their remarkable mechanical properties but few have considered how they are imparted on the initially liquid silk feedstock.1 I am exploring how silk duct geometry affects the fibers produced as by understanding the flow conditions within the model, and comparing ...

The poster presents a methodology to account for thermal effects on battery cells to improve the typical thermal performances in a pack through heating calculations generally performed under the operating condition assumption. The aim is to analyze the issues based on battery thermo-physical characteristics and their impact on the electrical state of battery cells(Khan, Mulder et al. 2013, Khan, ...

A microfluidic component was designed to collect blood from a finger prick by capillary flow and to perform biological analysis. It was used to perform ABO blood typing experiments in one step, the blood drop deposit, by agglutination of red blood cells (RBC) using embedded dried reagents. The present study is a first step in the modeling of the whole agglutination assay. Blood typing ...

The use of LEDs package for lighting presents a thermal problem. In fact, 70% of the energy consumption is converted to heat. This affects widely the LEDs performance especially lifetime and luminous efficiency. Thermal management of LED is interested in natural convection cooling. The heat sink geometry and its design is important to ensure good heat transfer. Nevertheless, the control of the ...
