Heat Transfer in an Oscillating Meniscus

J. Plawsky[1]
[1]Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA

Experimental data for oscillations occurring at the three phase contact line of an evaporating HFE 7000 meniscus on a silica substrate is presented. The frequency of the oscillations were found to depend on the local value of the evaporative heat ?ux. The thickness, slope, and curvature of the vapor-liquid interface were determined using an interferometry technique, which allowed us to calculate ...

Although the cardiac arrest in pregnancy is a rare event it can have significant impact in terms of age of mother, mortality of unborn children and consequently long-term effect. One of the commonly used procedures in resuscitation is defibrillation. With recent advances in understanding pathophysiologies in pregnant women it became more obvious that previous studies should be extended to ...

Simulation of Radiation Dose Response in Phantom for CT

H. Chen-Mayer[1], R.E. Tosh[1]
[1]National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA

The radiation dose produced by an x-ray CT scanner to the patient is conventionally referenced to measurements performed by an ionization chamber in a phantom. On a fundamental level, the radiation absorbed dose, J/kg, can be determined directly by the temperature rise in the absorbing material. We model the temperature response in a high density polyethylene (HDPE) phantom. Use of COMSOL ...

Parametric Study of Heavy Oil Recovery by Electromagnetic Heating on a Horizontal Well

M. Liu[1], G. Zhao[1]
[1]University of Regina, Regina, SK, Canada

This study presents a oil-gas two-phase linear flow EMH model using COMSOL Multiphysics simulator. Special attention is focused on reservoirs with characteristics for which steam injection is not attractive or feasible such as low permeability, thin-zone, and extra-heavy oil reservoirs. Comparisons showed that cumulative oil production obtained by EM heating is better than what is achieved by a ...

Progress in Numerical Simulation of HIIPER Space Propulsion Device

P. Keutelian[1], A. Krishnamurthy[1], G. Chen[1], B. Ulmen[1], G.H. Miley[1]
[1]University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, IL, USA

HIIPER is an experimental space propulsion device using a helicon and an IEC as a plasma generation and acceleration stage, respectively. There is an experiment in progress, but for true rapid iteration and to model the performance of the engine, COMSOL is a strong candidate for fulfilling these roles and continuing with the project until its production phase. The simulation is built with very ...

Multiphysics Simulation of a Circular-Planar Anode-Supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

K. Daneshvar[1], A. Fantino[1], C. Cristiani[1], G. Dotelli[1], R. Pelosato[1], M. Santarelli[2]
[1]Politecnico di Milano, Dipartimento di Chimica, Materiali e Ingegneria Chimica “G. Natta”, Milano, Italy
[2]Politecnico di Torino, Dipartimento di Energetica, Torino, Italy

A 2D isothermal axisymmetric model of an anode-supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) has been developed. Also a parametric analysis to find the effect of important parameters on the cell performance has been done. This simulation has been carried out at 1 atm and 1073 K. The PEN materials are traditional ones: Ni-YSZ/YSZ/LSM-YSZ as anode, electrolyte and cathode respectively.The developed model ...

Toward an Evaluation of the Tonal Colouring of the Japanese koto using COMSOL Multiphysics and Acoustics Module

K. Coaldrake[1]
[1]The University of Adelaide, Adelaide City, South Australia, Australia

This paper investigates the potential for a multidisciplinary approach using COMSOL Multiphysics for the evaluation of the tonal colouring of the Japanese koto (13-stringed zither). It uses Ando’s classic acoustic studies (1986; 1996) as a benchmark for the analysis of the natural resonant frequencies and design of the sounding body of the koto. It reports on the development of the model and ...

A Study on Estimation of Permittivity Distribution using a Genetic Algorithm and COMSOL® Java API

[1]Kazuyoshi TOMIYAMA et al.

Chiba Institute of Technology, Narashino, Chiba, Japan[1]

The numerical model can be dynamically modified and analyzed by using the COMSOL Java API. We estimated the relative permittivity, diameter and position of the dielectric in a experiment device based on the electric potential and the capacitance of experimental results. The estimation method was developed by the COMSOL Java API and Genetic Algorithm. In this presentation, we will introduce a ...

Performance Prediction of Eddy Current Flowmeter for Sodium

P. Sharma[1], S. K. Dash[1], B. K. Nashine[1], S. S. Kumar[1], R. Veerasamy[1], B. Krishnakumar[1], P. Kalyanasundaram[1], and G. Vaidyanathan[1]
[1] Fast Reactor Technology Group, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu

Sodium is used as a coolant in Fast Breeder Reactors. Eddy Current Flowmeter (ECFM) is used for measurement of sodium flow in the primary pump and at the outlet of the subassemblies. Eddy Current Flowmeter (ECFM) works on the principle of change in the magnetic field profile due to induced eddy currents as a result of sodium flow. It consists of a central primary winding, energized from an A.C. ...

An Extension of Lauwerier’s Solution for Heat Flow in Saturated Porous Media

S. Saeid[1] and F.B.J. Barends[2]
[1]Technical University of Delft, Delft, The Netherlands
[2]Deltares and TU-Delft, Delft, The Netherlands

One of the crucial topics in this century is sustainable energy. In this respect, the exploitation of geothermal energy from deep hot aquifers becomes opportune. Hence, insight is required in the heat balance of potential aquifer systems. Essential issues are convection, conduction and dispersion. This article focuses on Lauwerier’s problem. As an extension, it is suggested that beside ...
