Pyrolysis is a key step in the conversion of carbonaceous materials into useful products. In this study, we investigate the pyrolysis of asphaltene and oil shale, both experimentally and numerically. COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used to model the combined effects of fluid flow in porous media, mass transfer of species, heat transfer, and reaction kinetics. Gas evolution and the porosity ...

Background: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is characterized by atherosclerotic blockages of the arteries supplying the lower extremities, which cause a progressive accumulation of ischemic injury to the skeletal muscles of the lower limbs. Despite revascularization treatment intervention some PAD patients require follow up secondary treatment due to a continued decline in limb function, ...

INTRODUCTION: Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a broadly used research technique that exploits the magnetic properties of atomic nuclei with non-zero spin in order to determine the physical/chemical properties of the molecules in which they are contained. However, NMR has fundamental sensitivity limitations, as a consequence of the small energy difference between nuclear spin ...

COMSOL Modelling for Li-ion Battery Diagnostics

[3] SRM University, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, India

Li-ion battery is being used as power source for various applications. Smart battery diagnostics is essential for creating a better control over the energy storage system and cycle life of a Li-ion battery. It is especially required for real time applications, where more power and energy demand together with an extended lifetime is critical. In this paper, under battery diagnostics, the ...

Modeling Thermo-Fluid Dynamics of a Processing Unit of the Fast-track Trigger for ATLAS

[4] University of Parma - Department of Information Engineering, Parma, Italy

We describe the thermal modeling of a crate hosting boards with Associative Memories (AM) designed for the Fast Tracker Trigger (FTK) system of the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. FTK is a highly paralleled hardware system designed to provide global tracks reconstructed in the inner detector. The hardware system is based on AM for pattern recognition and fast FPGAs for track ...

Modeling of a Direct Methanol Fuel Cell

J. Drillet [1],
[1] DECHEMA-Forschungsinstitut, Frankfurt, Germany

This work aims at the modelling of a 5 cm^2 Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) with mixed serial/parallel serpentine flow fields in terms of current/voltage behavior. One of the main challenge to overcome consists on lowering the so-called methanol cross over from the anode through the polymer membrane to the cathode that is responsible for mixed-potential formation at the cathode where both ...

Numerical Study of Secondary Flows in a Sinusoidal Pipe

[1] Engineering Technology Department, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, USA
[2] Brazil Scientific Mobility Program, CAPES, Brasilia DF, Brazil

The direction of the fluid is strongly related to the Reynolds number; as it increases, so does the centrifugal acceleration which tends to push the axial flow towards the outer side of the pipe. Secondary flow appear as 2 or 4 vortical structures after the inflection point. For low Reynolds number, the rotational direction of vortical structures remains unchanged. The core of the vortical ...

Stress and Strain of Film on Deformed Polymer–metal

Guibang Cao [1], Xiaolan Xiao [1],
[1] GuangDong university of technology, Guangzhou, China

Polymer–metal is a kind of new composite materials rather than traditional metal packaging materials. It has both features of polymer film and sheet metal. However, the polymer film will damage in the sheet metal forming process. Therefore, we try to established a sheet metal forming model with punch and die in the study, based on solid mechanics module of COMSOL Multiphysics® software. We ...

Simulation of Beverage Refrigeration with Dependence on Container Shape, Material and Orientation

[1]University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics, Bielefeld, Germany

Adequate cooling of beverages is a major issue in planning of several types of events, e.g. poster sessions at conferences. One crucial factor is the time needed to cool beverages from its initial temperature to the desired drinking temperature. We present a way to determine a close approximation for the cooling behavior of three types of commonly used beverage containers using COMSOL ...

Enhanced Spontaneous Emission in Plasmonic Nanostructures

Spontaneous emission -- an electron in an excited state of an emitter spontaneously decays to another state with lower energy -- plays an important role in determining the performance of light-emitting diodes, fluorescent dyes, colorants, solar cells, etc. The efficiency of spontaneous emission is determined by the interaction between the emitter and its local electromagnetic environment(1, 2), ...
