Radioactive waste repositories include barriers that work to contain the waste, thereby protecting human health and the environment. In deep geological disposal systems, barriers include the natural geological barrier and the engineered barrier system (EBS). The ability of the EBS to limit groundwater flow is important and optimized design solutions are often sought by means of numerical ...

In inductive heating simulations the electromagnetic properties of the steel have a significant impact on the temperature pattern along the heated product. Indeed, taking into account the non-linearity of the ferromagnetic material properties is a key point to have relevant simulation results. In particular, it is important to correctly include the nonlinear relationship between the magnetic ...

Nano patterning for chip manufacturing has reached its limitation with 193i lithography standard process. Directed Self Assembly (DSA) of Block Co-Polymers (BCP) is envisaged as an alternative complementary technique that can reduce critical dimension and pitch with high throughput and limited cost . For contact layers that require patterning of cylinders with diameter of tens nanometers, DSA ...

The transducer's construction used for current measurement in medium voltage power lines for current values kA is shown. The transducer involves magnetic circuit with a gap in which a MEMS structure with a movable cantilever is placed. The beam is made of silicon with a NiFe layer. The beam with the ferromagnetic layer is deflected due to effecting magnetic field. The deflection of the beam is ...

Highly loaded lubricated machine elements such as gears or camshafts are an integral part in a wide variety of technical products. Due to higher efficiency requirements these machine elements have to be improved continuously, which leads to the necessity to investigate physical phenomena taking in place in the contact zone. Because of very low film thicknesses the surface microstructure plays ...

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHEs) are commonly used in the food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries for heat transfer, crystallization, and other continuous processes. One of the factor posing difficulties to heat transfer is viscosity. Highly viscous fluids tend to generate deep laminar flow, a condition with very poor heat transfer rates and high pressure losses involving a ...

Optimization of a typical electrochemical system with insulating shields is considered in this work, which objective is to reduce the current peak due to singularity and smooth the current density distribution along electrode surface. Moving mesh method was adopted to allow change in design variables, i.e., position and width of the insulating shields. It was found that combining optimization ...

This paper is an investigation into the effect of blood vessel movement on measurement accuracy of blood flow rate using magnetic flow meters. The investigation used a Finite Element model of the magnetic flowmeter built using COMSOL Multiphysics® software by integrating the modules of laminar fluid (blood) flow, electric and magnetic field and structural dynamics (FSI), to mimic performance of ...
