This paper presents the study and design of a new generation oven for PET blow-molding machines. The design faced several technical challenges such as: the temperature distribution in the critical areas, the sharp curvature radius, the high PET thermal inertia and the presence of boundary elements, which affected the overall performances. The work included an analysis of the preform material ...

Electrodeposition has a major advantage over other methods of thin film deposition. It allows deposition at atmospheric pressure and room temperature, requiring inexpensive equipment. However, there are several parameters which can influence an electroplated metal layer quality. The current density distribution is taken into consideration. The Hull cell is an electrodeposition tank with a ...

The Pulse Electrochemical Machining is especially suitable for the precise production of complex geometric contours with high precision and high surface quality demands in workpieces in series manufacturing. During this process, the negative structure of an electrode is copied to the workpiece without sub-surface damages. An adequate knowledge of the current density distribution and thus of the ...

Ammonia separation from water by membrane contactor was simulated on transient state and compared with experimental data. Aqueous low concentrated solution of ammonium with high pH has been pumped inside the hydrophobic hollow fibers, acid solution in the outside part. The system is in closed loop configuration. In order to simulate the separation process, equations were developed considering ...

Atmospheric ice is a very complex material with varying electrical properties due to different polymorphs of ice itself. Also, if the medium to be considered is snow, then density becomes an additional parameter because it is a mixture of three dielectrics water, ice and air. The permittivity and loss tangent of naturally occurring ice and snow shows lot of variation at different conditions ...

This paper presents a 3D numerical model to predict the whole process of coaxial powder flow, including the particle stream flow in and below the nozzle and also the laser-particle interaction process. The Particle Tracing Module of COMSOL Multiphysics is used to solve the coupled momentum transfer equations between the particle and gas phase while incorporating particle temperature evolution. A ...

We have simulated the ultrasound-induced acoustophoretic motion of microparticles suspended in an aqueous solution. The full first-order thermoviscous acoustics equations have been implented on a rectangular microfluidic 2D domain excited with an ultrasound field tuned to resonance near 2 MHz. The micrometer-thin but crucial viscous boundary layers at the rigid walls have been fully resolved. ...

A problem of damage prediction in aircraft structure and its non-destructive evaluation is very important for aircraft structural health assessment. The analysis of the features of direct impact of thin-walled laminate component of aircraft was performed by COMSOL Multiphysics software. Mainly the GFRC and CFRC laminates were selected in form either thin separate plate or sandwich structure. The ...

Evaporation of sessile droplets is associated with simple phenomena such as the ring-like spot left by a drying coffee droplet. Evaporation rate plays an important role on the convective motion inside the droplet. These fluxes are for example one of the factors responsible for amyloid fibrillation of proteins, a mechanism present in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer. In our ...

An experimental LED light composed of a multi-chip LED-module, a LED driver and an efficient heat sink, was investigated using COMSOL Multiphysics software and the Heat Transfer Module. In an LED light heat is mainly generated in the LEDs but some amount of heat is generated also in the LED driver. The main target of the simulations was to resolve the junction temperatures of LEDs, the most ...
