The prediction of material damage induced by hydrogen transport mechanisms is a major challenge for the development of new steel concepts. Especially the ultra-high strength steel concepts (UHSS), like dual phase and martensitic steels, can exhibit a higher vulnerability to hydrogen induced damage. The main reason for this is the complex microstructure, including a large number of several ...

The present work aims to develop a blood pressure sensor using MEMS/NEMS technology. A normal blood pressure detector is used externally, but this work mainly aims for designing an implantable nanotube based sensor for continuous monitoring of blood pressure. The use of COMSOL Multiphysics 4.1 acts as a good platform to develop a nano tube based sensor design by using the MEMS module. The ...

Functionally graded composite materials are attracting interest among design engineers since structural component properties can be designed and customized into finished parts through processing. The controlled variable is the concentration of reinforcing particles at various points within the component. While locally isotropic, part properties can be made to vary in a controlled manner from ...

The use of high power microwave energy for ablation of contaminated concrete is a promising technique to speed up the dismantling of nuclear power plants. A coupled simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics® finite element software is performed by solving the electromagnetic wave equation at 2.45 GHz for a standard wave guide and a concrete block. The temperature field is obtained with the heat ...

Thermal elastohydrodynamic lubricated (TEHL) contacts occur very frequently in drive technology and thus in gear drives. In this presentation, the implementation of a finite element based TEHL simulation approach for gear contacts in COMSOL Multiphysics® software is shown. The physically based simulation approach used is different to most of the existing TEHL simulations and is required to ...

The dumbbell geometry is an ideal shape for testing the compressive strength of advanced ceramic materials. This paper details the combined use of COMSOL Multiphysics® and LiveLink™ for MATLAB® for determining the elastic properties of dumbbell-shaped samples by measuring their acoustic resonance frequencies. Degenerate bending modes which are sensitive to inhomogeneities or machining defects ...

For the SAFARI Imaging Spectrometer, part of the SPICA satellite payload, a Calibration Source is under development. Challenges in the design include the low cooling power (few mW) available at cryogenic temperatures. COMSOL Multiphysics® simulations were used extensively in the design process of the calibration source, allowing optimization of the thermal, electro-magnetic and mechanical ...
