[1]AltaSim Technologies, LLC, Columbus, OH, USA

In response to continued miniaturization and increased multi-functionality of electronic circuits, the number of integrated circuit (IC) packages on the circuit board continues to increase. As a consequence the operating power density increases and significant increases in the operating temperature of devices result. To maintain operation and long term performance device temperature must be ...

The high temperature measurement of thermal conductivity is vital for predicting nuclear fuel performance both during reactor operation and accident conditions. The proposed method uses experimental thermograms obtained via high temperature laser-flash heating of a disc-shaped sample in combination with finite element analysis and parameter optimization to calculate the thermal conductivity ...

Modeling and Simulation of Pressure Seals - new

[1]Noumenon Multiphysics Pvt. Ltd., Pune, Maharashtra, India

Seals leak primarily at the interface between seal and cavity (Figure 1). At a microscopic level, the interface between the seal and cavity consists of regions of contact between the two elements, and voids. The voids are connected to each other, forming a microscopic system of caverns through which the leaking fluid flows (Figure 2). In two previous papers, we investigated the microgeometry of ...

The majority of elderly patients are subjected to hip bone replacement due to dislocation of bone, mechanical failure and infection. The life time of the implant varies from patient to patient depending on their daily physical activity. Once the implant fails, re-operation of hip bone replacement is performed. In United States, there are approximately 18 revision hip replacements performed for ...

MEMS Based Tactile Sensors for Robotic Surgery

V. Nivethitha[1], S. P. Rakavi[1], K. C. Devi[1]
[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 ...

Cycling-Induced Degradation of Batteries

Rechargeable batteries solve electrification and communication problems. As examples, hybrid battery-diesel generator power supplies efficiently power cell towers in remote locations, detached from the power grid. Large battery banks are used to load level user power requirements, reducing stress on power generation infrastructure. Batteries firm the output capacity of intermittent wind ...

Thermal-Optical Modeling of a Signal Enhancement Approach for Paper-Based Diagnostics

D. Gasperino [1]
[1] Intellectual Ventures Laboratory, Bellevue, WA, USA

INTRODUCTION: Point of care diagnostics aimed at low-resource settings need to be relatively simple, robust and low-cost. The most commonly-used diagnostic platform in these settings is the lateral flow assay (LFA). LFAs are paper-based immunoassays designed to perform on-strip binding with analytes in patient samples in order to generate a visual signal if disease-specific antigen is ...

The reduction of energy consumption in the building sector (nearly 40% of the energy consumption in Europe) is a real challenge to achieve the objective of the “2020 European climate and energy package”. In recent years, great interest is observed for the Stirling thermoacoustic machines. Nonlinearities due to the high level of acoustic pressure generate DC flows that are superimposed on the ...

Cooling Study of Baffles Integration in the Molding Industry

[2] SIMTEC, France

In the molding industry, high productivity rate, low energy consumption, large 3D parts, and homogeneous temperature distribution are the main targets. The 3iTech® inductive technology developed by RocTool ensures both good temperature homogeneity and short heating time. Conventionally, to guarantee efficient cooling, a turbulent water flow is directly integrated into the mold. Ideally, to cope ...

Modelling of Melt Cast Cooling and Solidification Processes for Explosives

P. Lamy-Bracq[1] and C. Coulouarn[1]
[1]Nexter Munitions, Tarbes, France

A solidification process of casting explosives in shell is studied in this paper. An enthalpy method approach is used to model the solidification process. Both the thermal and mechanical effects are taken into account. An ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian) method is used to represent the physical deformation due to solidification. Results from the model are verified against experimental ...
