Single Mode Microwave Heating of Copper Powder Metal Compacts

J. Ma, C.T. Smith, G.J. Weisel, B.L. Weiss, N.M. Miskovsky, and D.T. Zimmerman.
The Pennsylvania State University.

We present numerical simulations that complement our experimental results of the microwave heating of copper powder metal compacts in separate electric (E) and magnetic (H) fields of a TE102 cavity. In general, thermal dissipation in the compacts may be attributed to resistive heating, dielectric losses, and magnetic losses. These dissipative mechanisms are coupled to the fields by the effective ...

Using Coupling Variables to Solve Compressible flow, Multiphase flow and Plasma Processing Problems

D. Smith
MKS Instruments

This presentation summarizes three different types of modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics. It is divided into three parts: Compressible flow, Multiphase flow, and Plasma Simulations. For the first part, we perform a special case study of the Mass Flow Verifier. A Mass Flow Verifier validates the accuracy of a Mass Flow Controller by measuring the rate of change of pressure in a fixed volume. ...

Using COMSOL Multiphysics to Model Viscoelastic Fluid Flow

B.A. Finlayson
Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Washington

Viscoelastic fluids have first normal stress differences even in rectilinear flow. Thus, they are more complicated than purely viscous non-Newtonian fluids modeled as a power-law model or Carreau model. Viscoelastic effects must be included when modeling the flow of polymer melts and concentrated polymer solutions in situations for which the normal stresses matter. The extrudate swell problem ...

Optimization of an Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator’s Superconducting Magnet Shield for the Micro-X High-Resolution Microcalorimeter X-ray Imaging Rocket

We are working on the design of a sounding rocket payload to perform high-resolution imaging spectroscopy of the Puppis A supernova remnant. This rocket payload uses Transition-Edge-Sensor Microcalorimeters, which are superconducting detectors that obtain very high (2 eV FWHM at 6 keV) imaging spectra. These devices need to be cooled to 50 mK, for which we are designing an adiabatic ...

Design and Simulation of a Spout Fluid Bed Coating System

Joel L. Plawsky and Howard Littman
Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Troy, NY

Since aerogel materials are open cell, inorganic foams, the surface pores of the material must be sealed for large scale application. Here we discuss the design and development of a spout fluid bed system for producing coated aerogel particle material. COMSOL Multiphysics was used in the design of the system to track the details of the flow field and individual aerogel particle trajectories. ...

Finite Element Approach to Microwave Sintering of Oxide Materials

Microwave sintering has been applied to a wide variety of, and recent experimental results have showed that for semi-metal or magnetic materials, the magnetic field (H) can have a significantly larger contribution than the electric field (E) during sintering. We have employed COMSOL Multiphysics to simulate the sintering process by adding the magnetic field contribution into the heating source. ...

Modeling Acoustic Wave Scattering from Cells and Microbubbles

[2] Dept. of Physics, Ryerson University

A finite-element model of wave propagation using COMSOL Multiphysics has been developed to solve the problem of ultrasound scattering from spherical structures. This model will be used to predict ultrasound backscatter from cells for ultrasound tissue characterization, and scattering from microbubble contrast agents. In this paper, we discuss an improvement to our model by using a ...

[3] Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Miami

In this paper a transient analysis of the thermoelastic contact problem for disk brakes with frictional heat generation is performed using the finite element analysis (FEA) method. The computational results are presented for the distribution of the temperature on the friction surface between the contacting bodies (the disk and the pad). Also, the influence of the material properties on the ...

Electric Current Model of Varying Tissue Properties

[2] University of Idaho, Moscow

A COMSOL Multiphysics 2D model of human tissue focuses on the change in dielectric properties (conductivity and permittivity) due to temperature, tissue type, blood flow, structure and other properties. These induced changes in dielectric properties result in significant changes in temperature and possible breakdown of the tissue. The result of this complex interaction is a feedback loop that ...

Modeling Remote H2 Plasma in a Semiconductor Processing Tool

J. Brcka
TEL Technology Center, America, LLC

Hydrogen plasma is typically used in the semiconductor industry for materials processing, surface preparation and cleaning of silicon wafers and thin films. In this contribution, we developed a 2D/3D plasma fluid model as described by the set of the species and energy balance equations in a generic semiconductor tool chamber with remote Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) source.
