The design challenge for thermostimulation equipment is to get a combination of high electric field strength and high temperature within the muscle tissue without causing pain or skin burns. In the present work, COMSOL Multiphysics is used to simulate the temperature distribution and electric field distribution within body tissue for varying body composition and varying design parameters of the ...

Photothermal therapy through Gold Nanorods (GNRs) is a new approach for the minimally invasive treatment of cancerous tissue. In order to design the proper settings, it is important to study the thermal effect that are induced close to the nanoparticle (nanoscale model), in the close vicinity and in the cancerous tissue (microscale model). A temperature dependent 2D-model of this particular ...

The transient behavior of the thermal resistance of single and double U-tube borehole heat exchangers (BHEs) is investigated numerically by means of COMSOL Multiphysics® software with reference to the 2D cross section of usually employed BHEs. The study is performed in a dimensionless parametrical form, the parameters being the ratio between the thermal conductivities of grout and ground, the ...

Schistosoma mansoni parasites affect million people worldwide. The intensity of the infection can be evaluated by the number of eggs present in the stool of an infected individual. The application of the traditional methods has been regarded as impractical in developing areas and there is a continuous search for new techniques. In face of this scenario, a new method of diagnosis was explored in ...

The Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) linear motor was studied which is developed utilizing the friction principle for driving. The principle says that, when a slider is placed on the Rayleigh waves generated on a stator, the slider moves in reverse direction of the wave due to friction between the stator and the slider. A LiNbO3 piezoelectric substrate is used as a stator where comb structured Al ...

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 ...

Sodium is used as a coolant in Fast Breeder Reactors. Eddy Current Flowmeter (ECFM) is used for measurement of sodium flow in the primary pump and at the outlet of the subassemblies. Eddy Current Flowmeter (ECFM) works on the principle of change in the magnetic field profile due to induced eddy currents as a result of sodium flow. It consists of a central primary winding, energized from an A.C. ...
