[1]King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

A 3D model was developed using COMSOL Multiphysics® to study the flow dynamics of the water inside the geometry of the [13N] Ammonia target for medical application . The image attached shows a 3D model of the target. A significant improvement was noted after modifying the geometry as suggested by the model and delivery time of radioactive solution was dramatically reduced. Water and aluminum ...

Design and Analysis of Multilayered MEMS Microphone Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

Saranya srinivasa raghavgan[1], Sowmya Srinivasa raghavan[1], Shruti Venkatesh[1]
[1]Rajalakshmi Engineering College, Chennai, India

In this project, we report a design of MEMS microphone that is based on the application of porous silicon in improving the sensitivity of bulk micro machined capacitive pressure sensors. The property of a low Young’s modulus of porous silicon and its dependence on porosity have been exploited to obtain a higher sensitivity compared to pressure sensors with single crystalline silicon membranes. ...

Improvement of the Reflective Characteristic of the Microwave Ion Source Chamber with COMSOL®

[1]Hirohiko MURATA

Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., Shinagawa, Tokyo, Japan[1]

We, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. have been developing a microwave ion source since 2011. The design of the chamber is important to generate plasma efficiently. The plasma chamber was designed with the COMSOL Multiphysics RF module, and reported the results at this conference last year. In order to improve the reflective characteristic further, we redesigned the plasma chamber with the RF ...

Modelling Ultra-short Pulse Laser Ablation of Dielectric Materials Using multiple Rate Equations - new

P. Boerner[1], K. Wegener[1]
[1]Institute of Machine Tools and Manufacturing, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland

Ultrafast lasers are widely applied in micromachining, material science and physics. In industry, picosecond lasers are becoming more and more established. For pulse lengths shorter than the electron-phonon coupling time, heat affected zones are negligible. Thermally sensitive materials can be processed using ultrashort pulse laser radiation. Multi-component materials and poorly absorbing ...

Short-Term Behavior and Steady-State Value of BHE Thermal Resistance - new

S. Lazzari[1], A. Priarone[2],
[1]DIN, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy
[2]DIME-TEC, University of Genova, Genova, Italy

The transient behavior of the thermal resistance of single and double U-tube borehole heat exchangers (BHEs) is investigated numerically by means of COMSOL Multiphysics® software with reference to the 2D cross section of usually employed BHEs. The study is performed in a dimensionless parametrical form, the parameters being the ratio between the thermal conductivities of grout and ground, the ...

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 ...

Assessment of COMSOL Capabilities to Analyse the Thermo- Hydrodynamic Behaviour of the MSR Core

A. Cammi[1], V. Di Marcello[1], C. Fiorina[1], and L. Luzzi[1]

[1]Nuclear Engineering Division, Department of Energy, Politecnico di Milano, Milano, Italy

The present work is aimed at evaluating the capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® to treat heat transfer in Molten Salt Reactors (MSR). The analyzed situation is represented by the molten salt in turbulent regime flowing through a cylindrical channel surrounded by graphite, with both the fluid and the solid generating power. A suitable validation framework has been set up on the basis of an ...

High temperature processes are used in a large variety of industrial application. Simulation helps to solve technological problems and increase energy efficiency in case of industrial scale simulation. We present in this paper a research equipment simulation. The aim is to increase knowledge of temperature field in the crystal growth region in order to give researcher some important information ...

Multiphysical Modeling of Calcium Carbonate Transportation in UV Disinfection in Water Treatment

E. R. Blatchley[1], and B.Z. Sun[1]
[1]Department of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA

Mineral precipitation on to the quartz surface of the lamp jackets in UV disinfection process (fouling) has been recognized as a major problem for UV radiation delivery during disinfection operation. Fouling behavior was observed to be induced thermally and influenced by hydraulic character of the UV disinfection configuration. Fouling process involves momentum, heat, and mass transport within ...
