Application of Transfer Matrix Method in Acoustics

G. Campa, and S.M. Camporeale
Politecnico di Bari, Bari, Italy

The Transfer Matrix method in the Acoustics Module of COMSOL Multiphysics is used when the whole system can be represented into a sequence of subsystems that interact only with adjacent subsystems. This method is frequently used in mathematics and, particularly, in acoustics. The ... Read More

3D Electromagnetic Field Simulation in Microwave Ovens: A Tool to Control Thermal Runaway

T. Santos[1], L.C. Costa[1,2], M. Valente[1,2], J. Monteiro[1,2], and J. Sousa[3]
[1]University of Aveiro, Portugal
[2]I3N, Aveiro, Portugal
[3]TEKA Portugal S.A., Ílhavo, Portugal

In microwave heating applications, the energy is introduced directly into the volume of the material and as consequence the quality of the process is highly dependent on the uniformity of the electromagnetic field distribution along it. That is, the non uniformity of the heating is a ... Read More

Effective Thermal Conductivity of Composite: Numerical and Experimental Study

M. Karkri
Université Paris-Est, CERTES, Créteil Cedex, France

In this paper, thermal properties of composites are investigated numerically and experimentally. In the numerical study, finite-elements method in COMSOL is used to modelize heat transfer and to calculate the Effective Thermal Conductivity (ETC) of the composite for three elementary ... Read More

Modelling the Effects of Temperature and Moisture Ingress on Capacitance and Dissipation Factor Measurements within Oil Impregnated Paper Transformer Bushings

D. Smith, S.G. McMeekin, B.G. Stewart, and P.A. Wallace
Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

The majority of power transformer high voltage bushings today are of the condenser oil impregnated paper (OIP) type. The ingress of moisture, through the deterioration of the bushing over time, can result in a significant reduction in life and is a major failure mode of these bushings. ... Read More

A Model of Gas Bubble Growth by COMSOL Multiphysics

[1]Laboratorio MUSP, Macchine Utensili e Sistemi di Produzione, Piacenza, Italy
[2]Instituto Tecnològico de Costa Rica, Escuela de Ciencia e Ingenierìa de Materiales, Cartago, Costa Rica
[3]Politecnico di Milano, Dipartimento di Meccanica, Milano, Italy

We use COMSOL Multiphysics to model a gas bubble expansion in a viscous liquid initially at rest, a very common system for lightweight foamed materials from metal production and polymer processing. Modelling and simulation of foam processing during the production step involves many ... Read More

Combustion Of Kerosene-Air Mixtures In A Closed Vessel

C. Strozzi, P. Gillard, and J-M. Pascaud
Institut PRISME, Bourges, France

The aim of this work is to present a simple multiphysics simulation using COMSOL able to describe combustion of kerosene vapours in a closed vessel. The emphasis is on the mechanical effects of the reactive processes. The evolution of the thermodynamical variables (pressure, temperature, ... Read More

Analysis Of Particle Trajectories For Magnetic Drug Targeting

A. Heidsieck, and B. Gleich
Zentralinstitut für Medizintechnik, TU München, München, Germany

The technique of magnetic drug targeting binds genetic material or drugs to superparamagnetic nanoparticles and accumulates them via an external magnetic field in a target region. However, it is still a challenge for this approach to succeed in areas with high flow rates, like the aorta ... Read More

Numerical Study of a High Temperature Latent Heat Storage (200-300oC) Using Eutectic Nitrate Salt of Sodium Nitrate and Potassium Nitrate

C.W. Foong, J.E. Hustad, J. Løvseth, and O.J. Nydal
Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway

In this study, a small scale direct solar thermal energy storage system with secondary reflector is designed and developed. The main advantage of thermal energy storage is that cooking can be carried out during the time when there is little or no sun shine. In addition, no heat transport ... Read More

Modelling Flow through Fractures in Porous Media

E. Holzbecher[1], W.L. Wah[1], and M-S. Litz[2]
[1]Georg-August Universität Göttingen, Germany
[2]Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

There are various alternative options concerning modeling fluid flow within fractures in porous media. We give a general overview, with remarks concerning the modeling using COMSOL Multiphysics. Moreover we define and study two test cases for intercomparison. Finally for one of the ... Read More

2D Axial-Symmetric Model For Fluid Flow And Heat Transfer In The Melting And Resolidification Of A Vertical Cylinder

S. Morville[1], M. Carin[1], M. Muller[2], M. Gharbi[2], P. Peyre[2], D. Carron[1], P. Le Masson[1], and R. Fabro[2]
[1]Laboratoire LIMATB, Université de Bretagne Sud, Lorient , France
[2]Laboratoire PIMM, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, Paris, France

Laser direct deposition is a process, different from molding or machining, which allows the producing of fully densified and operational components. This technique involves injecting metal powder through a coaxial nozzle into a melt pool obtained by a moving laser beam. The final object ... Read More
