A 3-D model for compost was constructed taking as geometry basis a truncated cone, with dimensions of 4 m radius and 3 m height; in this structure an energy balance is applied for a two phase system (solid-air). Compost energy processes are modeled using COMSOL with a modified heat transfer equation which includes: volumetric heat capacity, chemical oxidation and biological growing and ...

Introduction: Power electronic converters such as those for High Energy Physics Experiments (HEPEs) must operate in thermally hostile environment. Heat generated by electronics components must be conveniently dissipated to ensure electrical performances and improve reliability. Due to the high power density, the presence of closed environments, and the requirement of non-thermal interaction with ...

Concentrated photovoltaic systems with high efficiency solar cells are being widely investigated, aiming at improving the cost-efficiency balance in the solar energy field. Different cell types are in use: e.g., high concentration triple junction cells, reaching efficiencies of the order of 35 - 40 % at 1000 suns, and medium concentration mono-crystalline silicon cells, with efficiencies of the ...

Anisotropic Heat Transfer in Orthocyclically Wound Coils

T.L. van Vuure[1]
[1]Tecnotion B.V., Almelo, The Netherlands

Tecnotion produces linear motors for the high tech automation and semiconductor markets. Orthocyclically wound coils give the best performance because the largest number of windings can be packed into a given volume, as opposed to "wild winding", where the windings fall where they may. Additionally, the anisotropic heat conduction perpendicular to the wire direction is optimized because each ...

A COMSOL Multiphysics® Software Analysis of Beam Tube Cooling in the High Flux Isotope Reactor of ORNL

J. D. Freels [1],
[1] Research Reactors Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, USA

Previous to the present work, a formal calculation was approved [1,2] to support the operation of the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) Horizontal Beam-Tube 1 of 4 (HB-1). The present calculation [3,4] repeats the previous work using COMSOL Multiphysics® software and extends the analysis to cover a broader range of coolant flow. In addition, this new calculation expands the analysis much further ...

基于 COMSOL 的激光抛光过程仿真与机理分析

沈洪 [1],

作为一项重要的材料表面处理技术,抛光直接影响着材料表面粗糙度等表面质量评价参数。随着微纳技术和精密制造的发展,工业应用中对材料表面粗糙度的要求越来越高,对抛光技术的综合要求也随之越来越高。然而,一些传统抛光方法的弊端日益凸显,无法再满足工业需要。激光抛光作为一种非接触式抛光技术,避免了传统抛光技术的磨痕,作用区域可控,可以对选定的区域进行局部抛光,也可以对复杂结构、机械不可达或难接近结构进行抛光。本文基于传热学和流体力学的基础理论,利用多物理场耦合有限元软件 COMSOL Multiphysics®,建立激光抛光过程的热-流-自由液面变形有限元模型,分析了表面张力和 Marangoni 效应对自由液面变形的影响规律,阐明激光抛光的主导机制。

There is a great need for an effective drug treatment of the posterior eye, as the major reason for visual disability in industrial countries is Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). In USA alone, there are almost 2 million people affected by AMD [1]. A virtual pharmacokinetic 3D model of the human eye is built to address this problem, using COMSOL Multiphysics® software, based on the Finite ...

Coupled Heat and Mass Transfer Model to Simulate Hygrothermal Behavior of Bio-Based Materials

This poster presents a numerical modeling approach for hygrothermal behavior of bio-based materials. The mathematical model describes the heat and moisture transfer through a wall of bio-based materials. The studied wall is subjected to both convective heat transfer and moisture flux transfer with the surroundings. Consequently, an optimal proposal can be suggested to attain the main objective, ...

Temperature Propagation during Cell Stacking Processes for Lithium-Ion Cells

[2] AUDI AG, Ingolstadt, Germany

A thermo-physical 3D model of a commercial Li-ion battery was developed and validated. Visualization of the temperature distributions inside a Li-ion cell during cell stacking processes were simulated. Critical temperature levels depend on position, duration and intensity of the thermal stressing. Results show a maximum local temperature of 180 °C at the jelly roll after laser welding for 4 s ...

Simulation and Validation of Seasonal Soil Temperature Variations Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Software

L. J. Matel [1],
[1] Green Streets Infrastructure LLC, Seattle, WA, USA

The influence of the energy (heat) stored in the earth as a major factor in environmental soil processes is recognized by the soil science community. The heat (energy) supplied by the earth is known to fluctuate with depth below ground surface and time of year, obviously as a function of solar radiation variations through the seasons. The variation of energy available to drive evaporation can ...
