Steam generators (SGs) are used in CANDU® nuclear reactors as heat exchangers to convert water into steam using heat generated in the reactor core. Ferrous trefoil broach support structures prevent excessive vibration of thousands of SG tubes. A probe that uses pulsed eddy current (PEC) technology has been designed for inspection of support structures, from within SG tubes, to detect and ...

Impedance spectroscopy is a measurement technique that has been investigated in a wide variety of medical applications. An example is the measurement of the dielectric properties of the skin and underlying tissue using sensors placed in contact with human skin with capacitive fringing field electrodes. The aim of this work is to use finite element methods for optimizing the sensor design ...

In recent years, the single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) has been the most suitable choice for electric vehicles of the wheel and touchless type. The reason is simplicity in manufacturing, capability in applying direct force, moving and braking and low pollution. To study the influence of air gap between the stator and mover of linear induction motor the prototype model of SLIM used as ...

HIIPER is an experimental space propulsion device using a helicon and an IEC as a plasma generation and acceleration stage, respectively. There is an experiment in progress, but for true rapid iteration and to model the performance of the engine, COMSOL is a strong candidate for fulfilling these roles and continuing with the project until its production phase. The simulation is built with very ...

利用惯性力学和电磁学，研究了一个金属小车沿着磁铁铺就的轨道做减速直线运动。其中，小车也可以看成是携带等量的磁铁剩磁，且沿着铁磁轨道减速运动。通过赋予小车一个初速度，例如100 m/s，然后再根据实际情况、赋予它一个特征密度，即小车有了一定的质量。当认为小车沿水平方向的轨道减速运动，忽略重力、空气阻力等其他一些影响因素时，小车将只受电磁的洛伦兹力的作用，而逐渐减速到零。 利用最新版的 COMSOL Multiphysics®，建模过程中，主要用到了“磁场和电场(mef)”和“全局常微分和微分代数方程(ge)”接口，涉及到的动力学和电磁学方程为 dv/dt=F/m F ⃗=∫_(V_vehicle)▒〖(J_induced ) ⃗×B ⃗dv〗 J_(i_y)=σ(v_z∙B_x-v_x∙B_z ) v 为小车即时速度，F 为洛伦兹力，J 为感应产生的涡流，v 为速度，B ...

A research team at FSU CAPS is developing a novel fast disconnect switch based on a piezoelectric actuator for use in next-gen electric power distribution systems. COMSOL Multiphysics® software was used to optimize geometry and material selection of the disconnect switch. Current conduction, mechanical stress, and electrostatic simulations were performed to confirm that design requirements of ...

The XENON Dark Matter Experiment utilizes ultra-pure xenon (Xe) as a target for particle interaction in the effort to detect dark matter particles. To measure the purity of Xe, a gas purity monitor (GPM) is being developed which drifts electrons through Xe gas to detect impurities that contribute to charge attenuation. An axially-symmetric model is used to simulate the electric field generated ...

Topographic effects on magnetotelluric responses may be severe on rugged terrains. Finite elements simulation is a valuable tool to quantify this effect, due to its capability to match real morphologies. To do the estimate of the distortion, the AC/DC Module of COMSOL has been employed, using a model of homogeneous resistivity on which a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) profile of the Deep Freeze ...
