Fluid Flow Simulations Using New CFD Module

H. Rouch
INOPRO, France

COMSOL\'s new CFD Module has been tested for laminar and turbulent flows in simple geometries, with couple or segregated solver. These tests allow mesh sensitivities and comparison with analytical solutions. They also give a first idea of cpu time and RAM use for standard cases. In a second part a thermal-fluid simulation of a real industrial application is done: the air flows cooling a large ...

A Methodology For The Simulation Of MEMS Spiral Inductances Used As Magnetic Sensors

S. Druart, D. Flandre, and L.A. Francis
Université catholique de Louvain - ICTEAM, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

In this paper, a methodology to simulate the electric behavior of spiral inductances is presented and discussed. All the methodology is built with the COMSOL software used with the Matlab scripting interface and then allows performing fully parameterized simulations. The program architecture is explained and is used to simulate two applications. The first calculates the voltage induced by an ...

Numerical Implementation Of A Multivariable Thermomechanical Model For Unsaturated Bentonite

V-M. Pulkkanen, and M. Olin
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Espoo, Finland

A compacted bentonite clay buffer is planned to be used as a part of the engineered barrier system in the KBS-3 concept for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel. Simulations together with experimental studies are needed to ensure that bentonite fulfills its safety functions in the concept. In this paper, one type of bentonite model, namely a thermomechanical model developed by Jussila, is ...

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 ...

Computer Simulation Of Haematopoietic Stem Cells Migration Using COMSOL Multiphysics

G. Bencheva
Institute for information and communication technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria

Various haematological diseases, including leukaemia, are characterized by abnormal production of particular blood cells. Two important properties of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are used in their therapy, namely: a) rapid migratory activity and ability to \'\'home\'\' to their niche in the bone marrow; b) high self-renewal and differentiation capacity, responsible for the production and ...

Fruit Optical Properties Assessment by Means of Spatially Resolved Spectroscopy

Since the invention of laser sources, understanding the interaction between the laser and biological tissues is a subject of great importance because of their medical applications in particular for diagnostic purposes. They recently found a growing interest in the sector of the arboriculture to check the fruits quality in a non-destructive way. In this work, we study the interaction between the ...

Modeling CO2 storage Using Coupled Reservoir-Geomechanical Analysis

T.I. Bjørnarå, F. Cuisiat, E. Aker, and E. Skurtveit
Norwegian Geotechnical Institute(NGI), Oslo, Norway

The geomechanical effects related to CO2 injection into the Krechba formation at In Salah, Algeria, are considered through a coupled modeling approach to simulate simultaneously CO2 migration in the aquifer and the surrounding formations, as well as the poro-elastic stress changes occurring during injection. The model is based on the simultaneous resolution of the governing equations for two ...

Microfluidic Design of neuron-MOSFET based on ISFET

A. Jain[1], and A. Garg[2]
[1]BITS Pilani, Goa Campus, India
[2]Bhartiya Vidyapeeth College, New Delhi, India

An ISFET is an ion-sensitive field effect transistor used to measure ion concentrations in a solution; when the ion concentration changes, the current through the transistor will change accordingly. Here, the solution is used as a gate electrode. A voltage between substrate and the oxide surfaces arises due to an ions sheath. The surface hydrolization of the OH groups of the gate materials ...

Investigation Of Bone Marrow Stem Cells In The Bone Marrow Niche In An In Vitro System

P. Lezuo, M. Stoddart, and M. Alini
AO Research Institute, Davos, Grison, Switzerland

We aim to develop an in vitro culture system to mimic the human bone marrow stem cell niche in an artificial perfusion bioreactor environment to culture human adult stem cells. State of the art human bone marrow stem cell research shows that even smallest changes in the physical, thermo dynamical or biochemical environment induce a differentiation of human bone marrow stem cells into other cell ...

Multiphysics Process Simulation of the Electromagnetic-Supported Laser Beam Welding

M. Bachmann, V. Avilov, A. Gumenyuk, and M. Rethmeier
BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing
Berlin, Germany

The article deals with the magnetically-supported high-power full-penetration laser beam welding of aluminum. A stationary simulation was conducted accounting for the effects of natural convection, Marangoni convection and solid-liquid phase transition as well as an electromagnetic volume source term. An ac magnet below the weld specimen induces eddy currents. Consequently, Lorentz forces occur ...
