Flow measurement of molten metals is a formidable task considering the hostile conditions. Many electromagnetic methods have been evolved for measurement of flow of conductive medium. The Lorenz force velocimetry is promising considering its non-intrusive nature. The Lorenz force velocimetry is an electromagnetic flow measurement method that is based on exposing molten metal flow to a ...

This paper investigates a hybrid winding concept for a toroidal inductor by simulating the winding resistance as a function of frequency. The problem of predicting the resistance of a non-uniform and complex winding shape is solved using 3D Finite Element Modeling. A prototype is built and tested experimentally to verify the simulation results. Finally, the COMSOL Multiphysics® LiveLink™ to ...

We present studies of the electric field configuration that guides the electrons to the strips through the mesh and its importance to the detector’s optimal operation. Furthermore, analysis of the gas propagation inside the chamber for different gas distribution schemes is discussed. All the various studies which have been studied with the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, are in a good agreement ...

Auto assembled Ag-ZnO  star shaped nanostructures depicted in figure 1, presents their natural electromagnetic resonance at 60 THz. In this work we present that is possible to change this value by covering it with a variable in thickness layer of gold. The analysis is performed by numerical simulations using COMSOL Multiphysics® software.

Ferroelectric technology continues to attract significant interest due to its wide range of applications (capacitors, nonvolatile memories, accelerometers ...). In this work we present a finite element model of a ferroelectric. Piezoelectric and ferroelectric matrix are included. The coupling between the piezoelectric and ferroelectric parameters be introduced formally using a thermodynamic ...

Resistive magnets are one of the principal components of ion medical accelerator systems used in heavy ion cancer treatment. To fulfill medical requirements, like the size of irradiation field and an uniform dose distribution, some magnets of the transport beam line may require large aperture and a large region where the magnetic field is within specifications (good field region). After a ...

Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR) play a prominent role in contributing power for the Nuclear Energy Programme in India. In 540MWe type PHWR reactors, there are horizontally placed Liquid Injection Shutdown System (LISS) tubes for injecting poison into the moderator to clamp down the nuclear power under trip conditions. The Horizontally placed LISS pipes are placed perpendicular to the ...

Cochlear Implants (CIs) are implantable prostheses that bypass the non-functional inner ear and directly stimulate the auditory nerve with electric currents, enabling deaf people to experience sound again. The CI electrode array sits inside the cochlea close to the auditory neurons. An ideal stimulation material must have low impedance with maximum charge transfer capacity in the electrochemical ...

Remote field eddy current (RFEC) technique is a method of detecting defects in ferromagnetic tubes. This is based on low frequency eddy current, which employs an exciter coil and a receiver coil separated by a characteristic distance. The exciter is fed with a low frequency sinusoidal current and the receiver coil senses the perturbation of the magnetic fields caused by the eddy currents in the ...
