Model of Combustion Synthesis of Thermoelectric Calcium Cobaltates

J. Selig, and S. Lin
Lamar University, Beaumont, TX, USA

Self-propagating High-temperature Synthesis (SHS), a very economical synthesis of oxides was used in our lab to produce oxide materials. SHS process uses a highly exothermic reaction to convert reactants rapidly to pure products with minimal external energy input. This reaction is initiated by an igniter and reaction front propagates from the ignition through the rest of the sample. The fast ...

Coupling of Wired PCB With Microwave Radiation – 3D Simulation and Experimental Valuation

Modern electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards (PCB) with their sensitive structures and elements have to be protected against environmental influences by conformal coating or casting compounds. In this case the main challenge is the simultaneous curing of the polymers and the safekeeping of the electronic elements and structures on the PCB. This implies the investigation of the heating ...

Simulation Enquiries on Energy Transfer Efficiency in Stored Fluids

E. Zinterl, and G. Jakopic
JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft mbH,
MATERIALS-Institute for Surface Technologies and Photonics
Weiz, Austria

Heating or cooling of stored fluids by thermal energy exchange with the enclosing walls may be enhanced by improving the efficiency of energy transfer; energy loss to the ambient is equalized for all simulations. Buoyancy driven internal natural convective flow is assumed to be the main energy transfer mechanism. In Newtonian fluids dynamic behaviour is described by the Navier-Stokes ...

Modeling Arterial Drug Transport From Drug-eluting Stents: Effect of Blood Flow on the Concentration Distribution Close to the Endothelial Surface

F. Bozsak, J.-M. Chomaz, and A. I. Barakat
LadHyX, Ecole Polytechnique
Palaiseau, France

Drug-eluting stents (DES) are commonly used for treating coronary atherosclerosis. Despite the broad effectiveness of DES, ~5% of treated patients experience complications including in-stent restenosis and late-stent thrombosis. Furthermore, drugs used in DES not only inhibit proliferation of smooth muscle cells but also affect re-endothelialization. We have developed a computational model ...

Radiofrequency Inductive Coupled Plasmas Towards Low Pressure

M. Cavenago
Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro
Legnaro, Italy

Inductively coupled plasmas (ICP) are largely used as a convenient way to produce large ion currents in industrial applications and for particle accelerators and for the Neutral Beam Injectors (NBI) envisioned for tokamak heating (ITER project and beyond). Among specifications we have operation with gas pressure as low as possible (0.3 Pa). A multiphysics model of some major processes is here ...

Rapid Control Prototyping for the Production of Functionally Graded Materials with Tailored Microstructural Properties Utilizing Comsol Multiphysics

[1]University of Kassel - Chair of Metal Forming Technology, Kassel, Germany
[2]Volkswagen AG, Kassel, Germany

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 ...

Multiphysics Simulation of an Anode-supported Micro-tubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)

G. Ganzer, W. Beckert, T. Pfeifer, and A. Michaelis
Fraunhofer IKTS
Dresden, Germany

The high thermal stability and fast start-up behavior make micro-tubular solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) a promising alternative for small-scale, mobile power devices in the range of some Watts. To understand the transport phenomena inside a single micro-tubular SOFC, a 2-D, axi-symmetric, non-isothermal model, performed in COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.2, has been developed. Due to long current path ...

Efficiency of Evacuated Tubular Solar Thermal Collector

J. Ma and X. Wei
Southeastern Louisiana University
Hammond, LA

Using COMSOL® 3.5a, models were created to simulate the heat transfer between the working fluid and the selective coating as well as the natural convection of the working fluid itself. In these models, a constant heat input on half of the selective coating facing the sun was considered as energy input from the sun, and the open end of the tube, where the working fluid can flow in and out of the ...
