定量分析生物颗粒形态的变化可以为疾病诊断提供依据。例如血红细胞形态的变化常常会伴随有相应的血液疾病[1],细胞的癌变常常伴随有细胞核形态的变化[2]等等。无标记的光学显微成像技术已经可以对生物颗粒的尺度和形状进行直接测量。光声显微成像技术(PAM)利用生物颗粒固有的吸光本领,已经可以对单个生物颗粒(如细胞和细胞器)进行成像[3]。 最近,光声流式仪(the photoacoustic flow-cytometry)已经实现了对单个生物颗粒进行连续检测[4]。然而,为了在大量的生物颗粒中快速检测生物颗粒的形貌,最好的方法是并非对其进行直接成像,而是采用高频光声显微技术[5],它的分辨率来源于实际测量与光声功率谱的分析。 光声功率谱分析需要通过计算建模来获取。我们使用 COMSOL Multiphysics® 有限元分析软件的声学模块用来建模 MFC7 细胞核的光声功率谱 ...

Investigating the Performance of Mechanically Ventilated Double-Skin Facades with Solar Control Devices in the Main Cavity - new

C. G. Galante[1]
[1]Newtecnic Ltd, London, England, UK

The use of ventilated facades may reduce the cooling and heating energy demands of the building. Double-skin facades (DSFs) belong to the wider group of ventilated facades and currently represent one of the most interesting and studied facade systems. The purpose of this study is to investigate the thermal behaviour and performance of a DSF being designed for a real project in the Middle East ...

Thermal Simulation of FCBGA Package with Heat Sink

M. R. Naik[1]
[1]Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

In a modern IC design, the capability of predicting the temperature profile is critically important as well as cooling and related thermal problems are the principal challenges. To address these challenges, thermal analysis must be embedded within IC synthesis. This paper presents thermal analysis of the FCBGA chip with a 4mm×4mm×0.3mm silicon die. The silicon die dissipates heat flux of ...

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 ...

Numerical Analysis and Experimental Verification of a Fire Resistant Overpack for Nuclear Waste

P. Geraldini [1], A. Lorenzo [1],
[1] Sogin S. p. A., Rome, Italy

Confinement systems for nuclear waste are usually designed to perform and ensure safety in view of all the assumed design basis events, including fires. Considering waste typology and radioactivity, the goal of the confinement system design is to protect the content of the steel drums against a two hours fire event. At this aim Sogin has chosen to use Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) shells. ...

Predicting Degradation of a Composite Material Due to an Injected Current

J. Rivenc [1],
[1] Airbus Group Innovations, Toulouse Cedex, France

The purpose of this study is to predict, with a multiphysics model, the degradation area of a composite material when a current is injected into the material. The main physical phenomenon is an exothermic reaction, with an irreversible nonlinear variation of the electrical conductivity. The strategy is presented, in order to perform a computation that correctly takes the physics into account. In ...

Simulation of a Multilayer Thermal Regulator for an Optical Reference

J.A. Ospina[1] and E. Canuto[1]
[1]Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy

The research project under which the COMSOL simulations are performed deals with multilayer and fine thermal control of an optical reference cavity for space applications. The cavity, made of Ultra Low Expansion glass (Corning ULE), must be kept close to the zero expansion temperature of the glass (close to room temperature). The target can only be met by active control, while leaving the cavity ...

Oscillatory Thermal Response Test (OTRT) – An Advanced Method for Gaining Thermal Properties of the Subsurface

P. Oberdorfer[1]
[1]Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany

Thermal Response Tests (TRTs) are the state-of-the-art method to obtain the thermal conductivity of the subsurface in the nearby ambience of a borehole heat exchanger (BHE). The results of TRTs are used to determine the necessary depth of the borehole and to make long time predictions about the potential of heat extraction. For a TRT, a constant heat load is injected into the subsurface and the ...

Numerical Analysis of Copper Heat Sink with Different Micro Pin Fins

[1] SVERI's College of Engineering, Pandharpur, Maharashtra, India

Micro heat sinks can be widely used for cooling in modern microelectronic high heat flux components where the amount of heat generated sometimes exceeds the limit which the system can withstand. Microstructures when introduced into the channels of heat sinks in form of micro fins enhance the heat transfer performance of the heat sinks further. Copper heat sinks with different types of micro fins ...

[2] CRM Group, Liège, Belgium

The successful implementation of a high-efficient latent heat storage system necessitates an appropriate experimental approach to investigate and quantify the variations of the Phase Change Material (PCM) thermal properties caused by its aging, as well as its potential demixing induced by cyclic freezing and melting. In this paper, we present a concept for the PCM characterization. The proposed ...
