Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have remarkable mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. The properties of CNTs depend on atomic arrangement (how the sheets of graphite are rolled), the diameter and length of the tubes and morphology of nanostructure. In this paper effective elastic properties of CNT based polymer composites are evaluated using a square Representative Volume Element (RVE) in ...

Understanding the interactions between microbubbles and surfaces is key to the successful deployment of microbubbles in a range of applications. Two important examples are their use as a drug delivery mechanism, and their potential use of acoustically-driven bubbles as microscale sensors. Drug delivery with bubbles involves sonication at high frequency close to a boundary, and sensing with ...

[1]PSG College Of Technology, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

In this work, a piezoelectric tactile sensor will be designed and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The sensor is designed in order to assess the pressure exerted on the human body while the robotic surgery is performed. The sensor consists of a rigid and compliant cylindrical element. A circular PDMS (Polydimethylsiloxane) film is sandwiched between the rigid cylinder and the base plate to ...

VLSI Layout Based Design Optimization of a Piezoresistive MEMS Pressure Sensors using COMSOL Multiphysics

Design of an Electrodynamically Actuated Microvalve Using COMSOL Multiphysics® and MATLAB®

M. Williams, J. Zito, J. Agashe, A. Sopeju, and D. Arnold
University of Florida, Gainesville, USA

This paper describes the design of a normally closed, electrodynamic microvalve.  Magnetic forces between a permanent magnet in the valve cover and a soft magnet in the valve seat hold the valve closed.  The combination of electrodynamic actuation and a mechanical restoring spring are used to open the valve.  A device model and a design optimization strategy using COMSOL ...

Particle Flow Control by Magnetically Induced Dynamics of Particle Interactions

F. Wittbracht[1], A. Weddemann[1], A. Auge[1], and A. Hütten[1]

[1]Department of Physics, Thin Films and Physics of Nanostructures, Bielefeld University, Bielefeld, Germany

In this work, we show that dipolar magnetic coupling can be used to control the particle flow through microfluidic structures without changing the state of motion of the carrier liquid. Also no external magnetic gradient fields are employed; the total external magnetic force applied is therefore zero. The theoretical idea will be tested experimentally. Here, additional effects originating from ...

[1] University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth, Dartmouth, MA, USA

Radio frequency (RF) micro-electro mechanical system (MEMS) switch works in on/off modes controlled by electrostatic forces. In off mode, rough surfaces of electrodes come into a contact. Membrane contact surfaces have complex surface roughness patterns and the mechanical contact problem is very challenging to understand. The capability to predict contact quality becomes extremely important to ...
