The heat sink designs using impinging liquid jets, which form stagnation flows, feature uniform heat transfer coefficients, and provide thin thermal boundary layers, are studied to reduce the heat from GPUs. Three different designs using central, micro, and uniform-cross-section (UCS) central jets are studied and simulated in COMSOL. The efficiency factors, defined as the ratio of total ...
The Transient Modeling of Single-Bubble Nucleate Boiling in a Sub-Cooled Liquid Using an ALE Moving Mesh

This paper investigates the evolution of a single bubble going through growth, pinch-off, and condensation while rising due to buoyancy forces in a sub-cooled liquid. Phase change is modeled on the evolving liquid-vapor interface by considering changes in enthalpy and heat fluxes at the interface. A comparison of the ALE model is made with the same single-bubble system computed with a level-set ...

The modeling of ferromagnetic materials is a challenging task of high industrial and academic impact. Thin film and granular systems form the basis of novel spintronic devices such as modern hard drives with a high data area storage density. In order to push the current limits even further and to design more efficient devices, a strong understanding of the governing dynamics is required. We ...

The need for high storage capacitors led to the development of polymer based capacitors. Polymers have high processability, mechanical flexibility, electrical breakdown strength and compatibility with printed circuit board (PCB) technologies; but usually have very low permittivity (K). In COMSOL Multiphysics software, the AC/DC module is selected and the In-plane electric currents are applied ...

Recently, the concepts of fractal geometry have been introduced into electromagnetic and plasmonic metamaterials. With their self-similarity, structures based on fractal geometry should exhibit multi-band character with high Q factors due to the scaling law. However, there exist few studies of phononic metamaterials having fractal geometry. COMSOL is used to investigate vector elastic and ...

An investigation was undertaken into the suitability of using COMSOL for modeling an aircraft capacitive fuel gauging unit. A model of a sensor immersed in a fluid was developed for rectangular tank geometry with a range of fluid levels and sensor orientation using the electrostatics application mode in COMSOL’s AC/DC module The importance of modeling the capacitance of air was demonstrated. ...

Petroleum reservoir simulation is a process of modeling the complex physical phenomena inside a reservoir. This study presents an application of an analytical based numerical scheme so called the Boundary Element Method (DRBEM). It is proven to be able to provide a computationally efficient means of handling single and multiphase flow in a homogeneous medium through the comparison study with ...

Coil antenna is the simplest form in well-logging tools for resistivity measurement of the formation. This paper introduces how to accurately compute the impedance of the coil with very thin wires at high frequency, and with the complex borehole structure, e.g., metal housing and collar. A 3D RF electromagnetic wave in frequency domain is used. An alternate array of transmitters and receivers ...

Sintering is an important step in the manufacturing of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) billets. The challenge in heating large billets stems from the inherent low thermal conductivity of PTFE. Existing literature suggests determining maximum heating rate experimentally using recommended guidelines. This paper uses COMSOL to aid in optimizing the temperature profile required for a particular ...

Many application problems have non-smooth forcing terms, such as the Dirac delta function. The convergence order for the FEM solution is limited by the regularity of the solution in this case. This paper presents information on the techniques needed in COMSOL 4 to enable FEM convergence studies for time-dependent problems of this type, including how to correctly implement the Dirac delta ...
