The concept of virtual prototyping can be found linked to many different keywords in the literature: modeling, look-ahead problem solving, etc. This poster paper briefly discusses the potential real benefits that can be realized through pre-build cost savings, minimization of the number of prototype builds, and post-build problem avoidance for physical prototypes and production products. ...

A successful development of an effective quench detection and protection method for a high temperature superconducting (HTS) coil based on a HTS coated conductor tape lays on a thorough understanding of its slowly propagating, three-dimension (3D) quench behavior. Toward this goal, a 3D micrometer scale finite element (FE) thermo-magnetostatic HTS tape model is developed and implemented in ...

We are working on a microfabricated lysing chip that uses a piezoelectric actuator to provide ultrasonic energy to break apart cells. The device contains pillars with varying dimensions. We hypothesize that increasing the aspect ratio of pillars will increase the efficiency of the transfer of ultrasonic energy into the fluid phase and enhance the lysing efficiency. The fluid structure ...

Monitoring of indoor CO2 concentration is of particular interest to detect room occupancy in order to optimise power consumptions of building. One technological approach is to use optical detection using specific absorption lines of CO2 molecules in the infrared domain close to 4.2 μm. Key features for a wider use in public and private buildings are power consumption and price. Such optical ...

Given any equation L(u)=0, e.g. a partial differential equation, it can be considered to be the stationary solution of a time dependent equation (in fact, time need only to be fictitious time not real time). Our approach is to choose the time dependence in analogy with an oscillating particle system including damping in order to damp out the time derivatives and attain a stationary solution ...

Porous membranes with pore sizes in the micrometer scale are required in many micro systems dedicated to biological and chemical applications. If their thickness is in the same dimension like the pore diameter they are called microsieves. On the one hand, a thin membrane guarantees a small flow resistance but on the other hand the mechanical strength is reduced. We developed a process which ...

TAP (Temporary Analysis of Products) reactors are powerful instruments to study the kinetics of catalytic reactions. Their basic principle, exposition of evacuated solids of interest to narrow pulses containing very small amounts of gases, and measuring the concentrations of outgoing molecules permits to study practical catalysts under the conditions approaching those of molecular beam ...

In this paper we present an analysis that shows the Maxwell Fish Eye (MFE) only has super-resolution property for some particular frequencies (for other frequencies, the MFE behaves as conventional imaging lens). These frequencies are directly connected with the Schumann resonance frequencies of spherical symmetric systems. The analysis have been done using a thin spherical waveguide (two ...

An electromagnetic horn is a device used in particle physics to produce a strong pulsed toroidal magnetic field and to focus charged particles toward a detector. A multiphysics analysis is performed to assess the stress level inside the horn structure. In steady state regime, the horn is submitted to a thermal static stress due to thermal dilatation. Then, every 80 ms a strong magnetic field ...

Like humans, horses can develop a variety of dental problems. Different equine diseases occur in different areas of the equine cheek tooth or its surrounding tissues. With a realistic simulation of a chewing cycle it can be possible to link mechanical phenomena such as high stress in distinct areas to commonly occurring diseases. According to different angles of the acting chewing force, ...
