Modular orthopaedic devices are a feature of total joint replacements today. These modular orthopaedic devices allowing surgeons to choose from a variety of available implant sizes, designs & material options for the procedure required and the patient specific requirements. However, even though this allows for greater scope of implant construction, if the various components of the modular design ...

There is a practical interest among composite materials manufacturers to high-speed accurate non-destructive evaluation (NDE) technology for voids inspection when these voids are natural components of such complex structures like resin insulated layer of double-sided copper-clad laminates. Model based design (MBD) of NDE system is one of principal solutions for voids inspection in such composites ...

In this work we solve a model to simulate the drying of potatoes slices. The model considers both the transport of free and vapor water by applying a mechanistic approach. The critical moisture point (CMP) was considered, since it is a transition zone and it represents the point where water saturation is near from cero and hygroscopic domain begins. The CMP divides the hygroscopic and ...

The Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co (SKB) is responsible for final disposal of spent fuel and radioactive waste. SKB operates SFR, an underground waste repository in crystalline rock. The evolution of groundwater flow within the repository needs to be estimated considering different options for the design of the engineered barriers. The goal is to predict the effects of flow and ...

Within the field of hot metal bulk forming the demand arises for fully three-dimensionally tailored properties at the microstructural level, nevertheless, reaching a predefined geometry with such tailored properties puts high requirements on the control mechanisms utilized in the process chain for combined heating, metal forming, and cooling processes. A simulation based rapid control ...

The Child-Langmuir law gives the maximum electron current, known as the space-charge-limited current, which arises because the space charge in the diode presents a potential barrier to the incident electrons. While there are modifications due to geometrical and relativistic effects, the limited current remains a fundamental quantity characterizing the beam-gap interaction. In the research of ...

Even though the researches in synchronous machines are advanced, the practical design still is a problem because of the complex interaction between several design parameters. The project “EaSync” at the Ostfalia University focuses on the bundling of machine models using COMSOL Multiphysics® to create a semi-automatic engineering process. The project is based on student research projects ...

The computational ability to accurately predict the dynamic behavior of a nuclear reactor core in response to reactivity-induced perturbations is an important subject in reactor physics. Space-time and point kinetics methodologies were developed for the purpose of studying the transient-induced behavior of the High Flux Isotope Reactor’s (HFIR) compact core. The space-time simulations employed ...

This work is to present an implementation of COMSOL with MATLAB®  for the liquid cooling system of a battery pack based on the physics in COMSOL. The m.file of a model of battery module from COMSOL 4.2 is exported and modified to run in MATLAB®, as well as is managed by using another m.file. The advantage of running the model of COMSOL in MATLAB® is that each part in system built in COMSOL ...
