Heat Transfer Modeling for Thermal Stimulation of Near Wellbore Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

M. Mohammed [1],
[1] Freiberg University of Mining and Technology, Sachsen, Germany

The performance of the oil reservoir is decisively determined by the hydraulic permeability of the rock and the possible flow paths. During the production phase, the petrophysical properties of the rock may deteriorate due to highly viscous oil deposits, especially in the near of the ... Saiba Mais

CFD Analysis of a Stirred Vessel Bioreactor with Double Pitch Blade and Rushton Type Impellers

[3] Latvian State Institute of Wood Chemistry, Laboratory of Bioprocess Engineering, Riga, Latvia

Stirred tank bioreactors are used to simulate a natural biochemical environment for the optimum growth of cells (i.e. algae, microorganisms or tissues) in microbial and cell culture. Bioreactor types range from small (5 L and less) up to 15000 L systems for large-scale industrial ... Saiba Mais

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Simulation of Multiphase Flow in Biogas Digester

V. S. Kshirsagar[1], P. M. Pawar[1]
[1]SVERI's College of Engineering, Pandharpur, Maharashtra, India

Effective suspension and settling are critical for controlling biomass retention in a biogas digester. This paper developed a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model to simulate the hydrodynamic characteristics of multiphase flow in biogas digester. This is carried out by using COMSOL ... Saiba Mais

Boundary conditions in multiphase, porous media, transport models of thermal processes with rapid evaporation

A. Datta[1], and A. Halder[1]
[1]Biological and Environmental Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA

In modeling of thermal processing of biological materials with rapid evaporation, it is critical to provide boundary conditions consistent with the phenomena happening at the surface to accurately predict spatial temperature and moisture content for quality and safety assurance. Boundary ... Saiba Mais

Transient Model of a Fluorine Electrolysis Cell

[2] Institut Européen des Membranes - CNRS, France
[3] Simtec, France

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 ...

Formation Of Porosities During Spot Laser Welding : Case Of Tantalum Joining

C. Touvrey
CEA Valduc, France

During the welding of tantalum with a ND: YAG pulsed laser, a deep and narrow cavity, called the keyhole, is formed. At the end of the process, surface tension forces provoke the collapse of the keyhole. For important interface deformations, gas bubbles can be trapped into the melting ... Saiba Mais
