In this paper, a model of a tubular fuel cell is proposed and includes thermo-fluid dynamics, chemical reactions and electrochemistry. The main results presented are the temperature distribution, the concentration of species and the polarization curves.

In this paper we study the natural convection for Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM) systems. Numerical models are developed using COMSOL Multiphysics. The results, obtained for imposed ambient temperature and operative conditions (power supplied to the CPUs) were produced and complex fluid motion field could be detected.

In this communication, we deal with the numerical simulation of Voltage Operated ionic Channels (VOC) in Bio-Electronics. Suitable functional iteration techniques for problem decoupling and finite element methods for discretization are proposed and discussed. Model and computational procedures are validated in the simulation of a real-life VOC under several working conditions.

The complete coupling among the Incompressible Navier-Stokes - General Heat Transfer -ALE modes can be a reliable tool for the simulation of the plastic deformation process. This is shown here.
