[1]Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain

Ammonia separation from water by membrane contactor was simulated on transient state and compared with experimental data. Aqueous low concentrated solution of ammonium with high pH has been pumped inside the hydrophobic hollow fibers, acid solution in the outside part. The system is in closed loop configuration. In order to simulate the separation process, equations were developed considering ...

Design and Optimization of a High Performance Ultrasound Imaging Probe Through FEM and KLM Model

L. Spicci, and M. Cati
Esaote SpA
Florence, Italy

The present paper describes the development of a full FEM model for linear array high performance 5MHz ultrasound imaging transducer. As a preliminary design, a mono dimensional electro-acoustical KLM model was realized, then the complete FEM was developed and optimized. The optimized transducer was manufactured, so that agreement between transducer measured performances and simulation results ...

Arterial disease, especially Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is one of the leading causes of premature morbidity and mortality. During the flow, blood interacts with vessel wall mechanically and chemically which modulates the plaque formation in blood vessel leading to coronary artery diseases. Here we propose to simulate a MEMS based flexible flow sensor based on anemometer principle designed to ...

Models of Simple Iron Cored Electromagnets

J. Mammadov[1]
[1]University of Manchester, Manchester, UK

This report mainly discusses the implementation and results of a project proposal, “Modelling using Finite Element Methods”. The report is devoted to implementation, which is a model of an electromagnet. The software tool that is used to model the electromagnet is COMSOL Multiphysics®, a commercial FEA package provided by the University of Manchester, Computer Science School. Additionally, ...

Modeling of Chloride Transport in Cracked Concrete: a 3-D Image–Based Microstructure Simulation

[1]National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA

The prediction of concrete materials service life is not easy, because the complex heterogeneous microstructure and the random nature of concrete materials. Study the presence of cracks in concrete and their effect on coupled reaction and transport are of great interest in civil engineering. Cracks with different widths and depths will reduce the cover thickness and accelerate the migration of ...

Inductive Conductivity Measurement of Seawater

R. W. Pryor[1]
[1]Pryor Knowledge Systems, Inc., Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA

The conductivity of seawater directly correlates with the concentration of dissolved salts. This model demonstrates a new approach to the methodology of inductive conductivity measurement of seawater and other liquids. COMSOL Multiphysics® was used to build a parametrically swept model of an O-Core Inductive Conductivity Measurement Sensor for Seawater. This sensor model is built using the ...

Evaluation of Instability of a Low-salinity Density-dependent Flow in a Porous Medium

Seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers is usually modeled by using transport models that include account for the effect of variable-density on flow. Variable-density models can be validated with the Henry and Elder benchmark problems. However, when mixed convective flow is simulated under variable density conditions, it is susceptible to physical and numerical instabilities. The purpose of this ...

Numerical Demonstration of Finite Element Convergence for Lagrange Elements in COMSOL Multiphysics

M. Gobbert, and S. Yang
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD, USA

The convergence order of finite elements is related to the polynomial order of the basis functions used on each element, with higher order polynomials yielding better convergence orders. However, two issues can prevent this convergence order from being achieved: the lack of regularity of the PDE solution and the poor approximation of curved boundaries by polygonal meshes. We show studies for ...

3D Modeling of All-Superconducting Synchronous Electric Machine by Finite Element Method

D. Hu[1], M. Ainslie[1], J. Zou[1], D. Cardwell[1]
[1]Bulk Superconductivity Group, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

This paper presents the electromagnetic analysis of an all-superconducting synchronous electric machine, focusing on AC loss calculations in high temperature superconducting (HTS) coils. The numerical analyses of two 3D models are shown, including the model of the machine and its HTS stator coils. The models use the H-formulation based on a B-dependent critical current density and a bulk ...

Multiphysics Modeling of Warm-Air Drying of Potatoes Slices

S. Sandoval Torres[1], A. de Lourdes Allier González[1], L.L. Méndez Lagunas[1]
[1]Instituto Politécnico Nacional, CIIDIR, Oaxaca, Mexico

In this work we solve a model to simulate the drying of potatoes slices. The model considers both the transport of free and vapor water by applying a mechanistic approach. The critical moisture point (CMP) was considered, since it is a transition zone and it represents the point where water saturation is near from cero and hygroscopic domain begins. The CMP divides the hygroscopic and ...
