In this work, a bimetallic strip based thermal sensor was designed using MEMS module of COMSOL Multiphysics® software to monitor the temperature rise in insulating oil which was used as coolant in transformers. The bimetallic strip was designed with different shapes such as cylindrical, rectangle, square & conical and different compositions such as Al/Steel Alloy and Fe/Cu which can withstand ...

Gas lubricated bearing has been developed for high accuracy in precision machines and equipments. Gas lubricated bearings are mainly two types: aerostatic bearings, which require a feed of pressurized gas for their operation, and aerodynamic bearings, which generate their own internal pressure differentials. The latter generate this pressure by the action of simultaneously shearing and squeezing ...

We study the gravity-driven film flow of a Newtonian liquid down an inclined plane. Many applications such as heat- and mass exchangers and evaporators or film coaters require undulated or rippled bottom topographies. In these cases, the interplay of gravity, surface tension and inertia leads to a response of the interface which furthermore strongly depends on the shape of the bottom topography. ...

Ion implantation in insulating materials leads to local variations in mechanical and optical properties that can be exploited for the fabrication of micro-structures. In particular, ion irradiation of diamond causes the formation of buried amorphised layers, with correspondent mass density and refractive index variations that depend on the level of “damage” of the crystal structure. ...

The emergence of electromagnetic metamaterials has given rise to a variety of fascinating applications, including the perfect lens and the optical cloaking device. For a long time the study of the properties of metamaterials was limited to normal incidence only. However, it is extremely important to know the behavior of metamaterials especially in the area of imaging. In this paper, we use COMSOL ...

COMSOL Multiphysics is offering an important alternative to home codes for modeling and simulation of complex problems with including coupled effects on heat and mass transfer. The present work focuses on low Prandtl number fluid melts subject to symmetry breaking and transition to unsteady regimes. These configurations are for practical interest in crystal growth industry, namely the Bridgman ...

This paper will discuss the comprehensive solution adopted for converting the 3D digital/medical images directly into the computational model. The workflow using Simpleware Software – ScanIP and + ScanFE – will be illustrated including the option for directly exporting fully compatible models to COMSOL Multiphysics. The extra functionality that allows introduction, positioning and ...

Restoration of archaeological materials from oceans is a major activity of Arc’ Antique. Organic materials such as wood, tissues, leathers, papers and ceramics found in sea water are always impregnated with salts. Rinsing such archaeological objects with pure water to extract the salts takes too long, so electrophoresis was used to improve the salt extraction. The objective of this ...

A two dimensional instationary analysis of the conjugate optical-thermal fields induced in a multilayer thin film structure on a glass substrate by a moving Gaussian laser source is carried out numerically in order to compare back and front laser treatment processes. COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4 code has been adopted to solve the combined thermal and electromagnetic problem in order to compare the two ...

This paper presents the solution of a transient electromagnetic problem using COMSOL Multiphysics. The paper also presents a closed-form solution of a transient electromagnetic dipole. The computational solution compares well with a closed-form solution for this problem. This work implements Maxwell’s equations in the RF module and optimizes solver parameter settings to resolve the transient ...
