Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) of carbon steel has been studied world-wide for more than twenty years and is now fairly well understood. The influence of several parameters like water chemistry (pH, dioxygen content), temperature, hydrodynamic or mass transfer conditions (flow velocity, geometry) and steel composition on the corrosion kinetics has been demonstrated both theoretically (“Berge ...
Low-pressure glow discharges are of topical interest for a lot of technological applications like plasma light sources, plasma processing for surface modification, and plasma chemistry. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the fundamental processes of glow discharges is required to e.g. optimize the discharge parameters in these plasma applications. Theoretical investigations can help to ...

Les décharges luminescentes à pression atmosphérique sont étudiées expérimentalement en laboratoire pour la valorisation des alcanes et notamment la production d'hydrogène à partir du méthane. La modélisation des dispositifs usuels est complexe compte tenu de l'aspect non stationnaire des décharges. Afin d'évaluer le poids des paramètres de réglage d'un réacteur nous avons ...
Boundary Conditions Identification for Thermostatic Cauchy Problem by Minimizing an Energy-like Function
LDMS, UMR CNRS-INSA 5006, ISTIL - Université Claude Bernard, Lyon
An energy-like error function is introduced in the context of the ill-posed problem of boundary data recovering, which is commopnly known as a Cauchy problem. Here the problem is converted into an optimization problem. Numerical simulations highlight the efficiency and robustness of the proposed method.

This presentation is concerned with the modelling of deformable non-Newtonian Flow using COMSOL Multiphysics. This general modelling approach has more concrete applications such as paper coating in a metering size press, meniscus location by PIDS to mention a few.

The mathematical modeling of the diffusion and reaction of toxic compounds in mammalian cells is tough task due to their very complex geometry. The heterogeneity of the cell, particularly the cytoplasm, and the variation of the cellular architecture, greatly affects the behavior of these toxic compounds. Homogenization techniques have been implemented for the numerical treatment of the model. ...

The evaporation process of microscopic drops was investigated by depositing them onto atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilevers and measuring the deflection of the cantilever in response to the presence of the drop. We could thus improve a previously presented FE simulation model by comparing the simulations of the cantilever’s transversal deflection to 3-D images of the cantilever’s ...

Primary reference standards for determining absorbed dose to water in radiotherapy beams used at cancer clinics and hospitals ultimately must make reference to the temperature change in water produced by ionizing radiation. The most direct experimental technique for this purpose is water calorimetry. Since the dose distributions delivered by such beams are nonuniform, temperature signals ...

This paper describes the benefits of computational fluid dynamics in the development of a microreactor used in the desulfurization of aromatic compounds. It is crucial to verify diffusion and extinction coefficients to ensure accurate simulation results prior to experiments. COMSOL Multiphysics was used to model the behavior of all of the possible species present and reactions that may occur.

The Magnetic Refrigerator (MR) is a special type of refrigerator with potential to reduce the energy consumption of household refrigeration by a factor of two or more. To conduct numerical analysis of an experimental MR, a mathematical model was developed. The model solves the coupled Navier-Stokes and heat transfer equations which describe the physical phenomenon occurring within the MR. To ...
