This paper will present a numerical model based on COMSOL Multiphysics suited to simulate the dynamic response of a catenary mooring (or a submarine cable). In general, mooring lines are subject to a direct wave load (e.g. drag, inertia) in addition to the movement of the vessel to which they are linked. Tests were carried out at the wave flume of the Maritime Laboratory of IMAGE Department, ...

The geomechanical effects related to CO2 injection into the Krechba formation at In Salah, Algeria, are considered through a coupled modeling approach to simulate simultaneously CO2 migration in the aquifer and the surrounding formations, as well as the poro-elastic stress changes occurring during injection. The model is based on the simultaneous resolution of the governing equations for two ...

This study focuses on a low-cost composite material based on CuW with Cu via, which functions as a more efficient thermal path for heat conduction. A 50mm X 50mm X 1mm CuW(15/85) speciman consists an array of 30X30 uniformly distributed cylindrical Cu via attaching to a microprocessor generating 100 watts power was studied. By calculating the heat flux coming out of the top and the ...

With detailed hydrodynamic modelling of a system the critical parameters and operation limits can be determined. In the field of fluid dynamic and reactor engineering one of the most important aspects is the practical knowledge of future engineers and technicians. In our research several different reactor constructions and impeller configurations were modelled to achieve a better ...

We apply COMSOL Multiphysics for reproducing our experimental observations of fluid flow and transport processes in geological media. Our experimental GeoEPT-method allows the 4D monitoring of transport processes in geological material on laboratory scale. Explicitly we import “realistic structures” from geologic samples scanned by means of computer tomography (CT) as stl-files into COMSOL ...

In this paper we present an analysis that shows the Maxwell Fish Eye (MFE) only has super-resolution property for some particular frequencies (for other frequencies, the MFE behaves as conventional imaging lens). These frequencies are directly connected with the Schumann resonance frequencies of spherical symmetric systems. The analysis have been done using a thin spherical waveguide (two ...

Stroke is caused by an interruption of brain blood supply and is one of the leading causes of death and disability. A mild reduction of 2-5°C in tissue temperature through hypothermia has shown reduced tissue infarct size, increased tissue recovery, and positive neurological effects. This paper seeks to predict the outlet blood temperature in the common carotid bifurcation branches. In our ...

Micro Mirror is a versatile device which has been gaining popularity and also the importance of MEMS techniques to develop such devices. These mirrors find applications in fields such as optical switching, display and in medical fields for non-invasive imaging. A thermally actuated mirror moves in either vertical or horizontal directions for the given orientation. The ends of thermal actuators ...
