Development of a Microfluidic-Based Electrochemical Cell for Analyzing Bacterial Biofilms

I. Claydon [1], J. Turner [1], B. Sammakia [1],
[1] Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY, USA

The ubiquitous nature of biofilms has led to a growing need to be able to detect, control, and maintain or remove them. Therefore a robust testing platform that allows for multiple analytical techniques is required to better understand their multitude of properties. The development of the self-contained microfluidic-based electrochemical cell portion of a multifaceted analysis system is ...

Eccentricity in annular channels contributes to changes in fluid flow characteristics which in turn, affects the performance and integrity of the configuration. This research investigates a model of an annular channel with a diameter ratio of 0.762, an aspect ratio of 68.9:1 and heating of the internal surface of the inner cylinder with a 1.105MW/m2 heat flux. The Reynolds number ranges from 5 ...

3-D COMSOL Analysis of Extruder Dies

[1]Arcada University of Applied Sciences, Espoo, Finland

Three-dimensional flow analysis was performed by using COMSOL Multiphysics Chemical Engineering Module for the purpose of analyzing the flow properties and finding out the operating points of a test domain. Using material property table for an exemplary melt of LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene), the logarithmic viscosity-shear rate graph was plotted and fitted to the 4–constant modified Carreau ...

Introduction: In metal foams production, nucleated gas bubbles expand in a heated metal in a mold, then the foam cool and solidify. Thereby energy, mass and momentum transfer mechanisms are present simultaneously in the system and must be taken into account. Metal foam (Figure 1) can be obtained by foaming a precursor, i.e. a mixing of aluminum (Al) powders with the blowing agent TiH2, placing ...

Thermo-Fluid Dynamics FEM Simulation of Advanced Water Cold Plates for Power Electronics

N. Delmonte[1], F. Giuliani[1], P. Cova[1]
[1]Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione, Università degli Studi di Parma, Parma, Italy

Introduction: Power electronic converters such as those for High Energy Physics Experiments (HEPEs) must operate in thermally hostile environment. Heat generated by electronics components must be conveniently dissipated to ensure electrical performances and improve reliability. Due to the high power density, the presence of closed environments, and the requirement of non-thermal interaction with ...

Solar Cell Cooling and Heat Recovery in a Concentrated Photovoltaic System

M. Cozzini[1]
[1]Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), Renewable Energies and Environmental Technologies (REET) Unit, Trento, Italy

Concentrated photovoltaic systems with high efficiency solar cells are being widely investigated, aiming at improving the cost-efficiency balance in the solar energy field. Different cell types are in use: e.g., high concentration triple junction cells, reaching efficiencies of the order of 35 - 40 % at 1000 suns, and medium concentration mono-crystalline silicon cells, with efficiencies of the ...

Some of the present metallic ores mines are located in areas formed by a heterogeneous fractured massif where groundwater flows preferentially through fractures. Underground mining in these zones can cause impacts in streams, lakes and change the natural water balance of the watersheds, leading to conflicts between traditional uses of water and the mining activity. Quantification of these ...

Numerical Investigation for the Effect of Guide Panel on Heat Transfer from Steel Containment

In a nuclear reactor, the containment is the last barrier for the release of radioactivity during severe accident conditions. Containment material can be concrete or steel or steel-lined concrete. Steel containments have a high load bearing capacity and a high degree of leak tightness at higher pressures. In case of a severe accident, heat can be removed from the containment by a guide panel, ...

CFD Simulation of Internal Flow Field of Dual-mode Scramjet - new

C. Butcher[1], K. Yu[1]
[1]University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA

The complex internal flow field of a hypersonic air-breathing propulsion engine was modeled using COMSOL Multiphysics® software. This type of flow field can be found in a dual-mode scramjet engine. After creating the geometry, a 2D CFD simulation was run using the High Mach Number Flow physics interface in the CFD Module. A stationary time study was run and the results from the CFD simulation ...
