We have developed Thor: a pulsed power accelerator for performing dynamic material experiments. The design was aided by using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software with the AC/DC Module and RF Module. Our design process involved optimizing the impedance of the system while maintaining a good margin against electrical breakdown. By using a three-dimensional electromagnetic model of the entire power ...

The motion of DNA in crowded environments is a common theme in physics and biology. Examples include gel electrophoresis and the self-interaction of DNA within cells and viral capsids. Here we study the interaction of multiple DNA molecules within a nanopore by tethering the DNA to a bead held in a laser optical trap to produce a "molecular tug-of-war". We measure this tether force as a function ...

The objective of this paper is to design and simulate Carbon Nano-Tube (CNT) based mass sensor that determines extremely low measures of molecules using COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The ultimate goal of this nanomechanical resonator sensor is that it allows detection at single molecular level. The change in the mass from the resonator can cause a shift in the resonant frequency. The ...

Continuous flow reactors are recently being used for lab scale synthesis as well as pilot scale manufacturing of high value low volume chemicals. Here we present our work on a new configuration of flow reactor that includes several 1800 bends and yet a varying radius of curvature thereby yielding continuous change in the direction of streamlines. Experiments as well as simulations (in COMSOL ...

The ability to artificially produce silk fibers has great commercial, industrial and scientific implications. Much has been made of their remarkable mechanical properties but few have considered how they are imparted on the initially liquid silk feedstock.1 I am exploring how silk duct geometry affects the fibers produced as by understanding the flow conditions within the model, and comparing ...

A comparative study is done using optimized single axis accelerometer and dual axis and double gimbal accelerometers are designed with different cantilever beam types i.e. perforated, non perforated, spring type and cross spring type. The models are simulated to find the most sensitive model.

A computer simulation model was developed using finite element-based commercial software, COMSOL Multiphysics®, to simulate temperature distributions in wheat samples packed in a rectangular plastic container and treated in a 6 kW, 27.12 MHz RF system with and without mixing conditions. The developed model was then experimentally validated by temperature distributions of three layers without ...

Ocean is the cornerstone in Earth’s system because the surface of the Earth is covered by ocean about 71%. Ocean also holds approximate 97% of the Earth’s water. Ocean is always moving and continuous. This study is focusing on the ocean movement in Southern Ocean which is located in the southernmost of the Earth. It can be called as Antarctica Ocean because it consists of the waters extending ...

Sacrificial metallic coatings (e.g. Mg-Rich Primer [MgRP]) have been evaluated for protection of aircraft aluminum alloy AA2024-T351 in marine immersion and atmospheric conditions. MgRP is designed to create a galvanic couple between the Al substratum and the Mg pigment in the primer. The Mg acts as a sacrificial anode to the more noble underlying substratum and protects local and remote ...
