Thermal Dissipation of DIMM Modules in a Tower-BTX Configuration

G. Sorge, G. Cammarata, and G. Petrone
University of Catania

In this paper we study the natural convection for Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM) systems. Numerical models are developed using COMSOL Multiphysics. The results, obtained for imposed ambient temperature and operative conditions (power supplied to the CPUs) were produced and complex fluid motion field could be detected.

Spatial Model of Glycolysis in Neutrophils

T.A. Hansen, and L.F. Olsen
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark

In an attempt to understand the mechanism and function of NAD(P)H waves in neutrophils, we have constructed a spatial model of glycolysis in neutrophils. The model does give rise to traveling NADH waves, but there are significant differences between the experimentally observed waves and the waves generated by the model. Based on the model we therefore conclude that it is doubtful that the ...

Designing an Array of Nanocalorimeters for Screening Biochemical Interactions

F. Torres
Palo Alto Research Center

In this presentation we present our analysis of the PARC Nanocalorimeter. Calorimetry is basically the measuring of heat of chemical reactions or physical changes. Nanocalorimetry is Calorimetry at the Nanometer scale. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is a special type of Calorimeter, it consists of arrays of Nanocalorimeters. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is intended to be used for screening biochemical ...

Numerical simulation of separation flows with FEMLAB 3.1

Carlo Gualtieri
University of Napoli Federico II
Naples, Italy

Flow separation is a common and interesting phenomenon in fluid mechanics with significant effects in practical applications. Thus, it has been the focus of intensive study for many years. The objective of this presentation is to investigate laminar separation flows over a backward-facing step and over a rectangular trench using COMSOL. --------------------------------- Carlo Gualtieri ...

Thermo-fluid-dynamic evaluation of a microsystem to analyse radioactive solutions

G. Janssens-Maenhout
Joint Research Centre Ispra
Ispra, Italy

It has become common place to use micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of solutions. However, such microchips have not yet been applied to the analysis of radioactive solutions, for the purpose of nuclear safeguards, in the nuclear reprocessing industry. Implementing MEMS in this area results in a reduced volume of the sample to be analysed. This has many ...

Mathematical Modeling of Autoregulation using Finite-Element Method

Aleksandar Jeremic
Assistant Professor
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
McMaster University
Hamilton, Canada

In this presentation, cerebral blood flow (CBF) is modeled using a mathematical model, a statistical model and numerical examples. In the mathematical model, blood flow is described using Navier-Stokes equations. In the statistical model, the experiments or the data measurement process is simulated and to study how the noise in the measurements affects the ability to estimate the parameters, ...

Wuhan, China

This presentation is written in Chinese. --------------------------------- Keynote speaker's biography: Yang Tianhong received his M Sc. from the China Coal Research Institute in 1998 and his Ph.D from Northeastern University, China in 2001. After a stint as a Visiting Professor at the Hong Kong University, Yang Tianhong is presently a Visiting Professor at the University of Western Australia.

The Unroutinary Loads on the LBT Adaptive Secondary Mirror

C. Del Vecchio
INAF-OAA, Firenze, Italy

The thin shell of the LBT Adaptive Secondary Mirror has been manufactured, optically polished, and delivered. The operations and tests required before finally mounting it on the telescope have to be run very carefully, as they imply loads completely different from the ones of the adaptive operational modes - studied in the past with very encouraging results. Deformations and stresses that occur ...

Design of heat flux microsensor assisted by COMSOL for the study of energy transfer on Si and Cu thin samples

L. Bedra, N. Semmar, A.-L. Thomann, R. Dussart, J. Mathias, and Y. Tessier
GREMI, CNRS-Université d'Orléans, Orléans, France

A commercial heat probe is used for energy transfer measurements on copper and silicon substrates. To do so, the micro sensor has to be calibrated under high vacuum (~10-7 mbar), using a homemade black body as a heat source.Although the HFM is cooled at 5 oC, the solid surface temperature is unknown as the thermal contact resistance. Thus, COMSOL simulations are also used to obtain reliable ...

Microband Electrodes in Microchannels: Edge Diffusion and Wall Effects

N. Godino1, F. J. del Campo2, and F. X. Muñoz1
1Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona, IMB-CNM-CSIC, Barcelona, Spain
2Institut de Biotecnologia i Biomedicina "Vicent Pallar Palasi", Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain.

Microfluidics enables the miniaturization and integration of sensors into advanced analytical devices. Electrochemical detection is currently one of the preferential techniques of use in microfluidic devices due to its sensitivity, low cost and compatibility with new microfabrication techniques. In this work, we first model the electrochemical response of a set of microband electrodes placed ...
