Multiscale Simulation of a Photocatalytic Reactor for Water Treatment - new

A. Cockx[1], R. Degrave[1], P. Schmitz[1]
[1]University of Toulouse, Toulouse, France

This study deals with the 3D modeling of a light photocatalytic textile. This process aims to decontaminate industrial effluents such as water with pesticides. The present study describes the implementation of a reactive transport model in a computational fluid dynamics model developed on a Representative Volume Element (RVE) of the textile, i.e. at the microscopic scale. The final ...

[2]Federal University of Uberlândia - UFU, Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, Brasil

This work proposes the use of inverse problem techniques in connection with COMSOL to estimate the heat flux and the temperature field on a turning cutting tool in transient regime. The main purpose of the present work is to present the improvements performed in relation to the authors’ previous work to develop the complex geometry of a machining process. Specification function, which is an ...

The Simulation of Motion of a Slider upon a Stator Due to Frictional Force Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Software - new

H. B. Nemade[1]
[1]Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Guwahati, Assam, India

The Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) linear motor was studied which is developed utilizing the friction principle for driving. The principle says that, when a slider is placed on the Rayleigh waves generated on a stator, the slider moves in reverse direction of the wave due to friction between the stator and the slider. A LiNbO3 piezoelectric substrate is used as a stator where comb structured Al ...

Design and Optimization of Cholesterol Biosensor

N. M. Sundaram[1], M. Alagappan[1]
[1]PSG College of Technology Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

Cholesterol is an essential lipid for human body. The desired total plasma cholesterol for an individual is less than 5.2 mM (200 mg/dL) and it poses a potential health threat when the level is greater than 6.2 mM (240 mg/dL) [1]. Excessive plasma cholesterol causes poor cardiovascular conditions. The experimental fabrication of nano structured biosensor with advanced materials is more expensive ...

MEMS Based Tactile Sensors for Robotic Surgery

V. Nivethitha[1], S. P. Rakavi[1], K. C. Devi[1]
[1]PSG College Of Technology, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India

In this work, a piezoelectric tactile sensor will be designed and simulated using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The sensor is designed in order to assess the pressure exerted on the human body while the robotic surgery is performed. The sensor consists of a rigid and compliant cylindrical element. A circular PDMS (Polydimethylsiloxane) film is sandwiched between the rigid cylinder and the base plate to ...

Numerical Modeling of Solvent Enhanced Water Flooding

[1] Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands
[2] Shell Global International Solutions, Den Haag, The Netherlands

Mutually soluble-solvents can improve the ultimate recovery in conventional reservoirs. Initially, the solvent moves with the imbibing aqueous phase into the reservoir. However, upon contact with oil, diffusion occurs and the solvent is transported in the oleic phase. Through the migration of the mutually soluble component from the aqueous phase into the oleic phase, oil properties and/or rock ...

Multiphysics Analysis and Optimization of Mechatronic Device Applications for Switching Devices

O. Cracium[1]
[1]ABB, Ladenburg, Germany

Medium- and high-voltage circuit breakers and reclosers are important grid protection devices that connect different grid sources and increase the network/grid reliability. Currently, there is a clear need of increasing the numbers of switching operation. Therefore, the optimal design of these devices becomes of extreme importance in order to enable the required switching capabilities. This ...

Simulation of Temperature and Moisture Profile of Single Mung Bean Grain under Infrared Radiation

[1] Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research, Chennai, Tamil Nadu
[2] Engineering Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi, India
[3] CSIR-Central Scientific Instruments Organization, Chandigarh, India

Mung bean is a good source of protein, vitamins, certain minerals and antioxidant compounds for the vegetarian population of the country. During storage, high moisture content of mung bean leads to the maximum quality and quantity losses due to the growth of fungus and insects. Thus drying of mung bean grains is an important postharvest operation to increase the shelf life of mung bean. Infrared ...

Numerical Analysis of Heat Generation in Ball End Magnetorheological Finishing

H. Garg [1], P. K. Baghel [1], S. Kumar [1], A. S. Kharola [1]
[1] CSIR - Central Scientific Instruments Organisation, Chandigarh, India

In the Ball End Magneto rheological Finishing, due to heat generation by thermal agitation the effect of MRF finishing reduces and this ultimately hampers the process of the precision finishing and density of MR fluid too, which therefore results in instability of MR fluid.

Computational Simulation Of Blood Flow In Stenosed Arterial Bifurcation Under Body Acceleration

H. S. Binti Ahmad [1]
[1] Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Malaysia

Motivated from previous studies, the present work developed a computational model of pulsatile blood flow through a bifurcation of artery with stenosis subjects to external body acceleration. The blood is treated as a Newtonian fluid. The flow is modelled as an incompressible and laminar flow passing through a bifurcated channel with an asymmetric obstruction representing a stenosis (see Figure ...
