[1]Laboratory for Devices and Nanostructures, Departamento de Eletrônica e Sistemas, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Várzea, Recife, PE, Brasil

Transmission-line transducers are used for the measurement of absorption and reflection of different materials, such as: liquids, granular medium, and ground. A simplified methodology for calculation of scattering parameters of such transducers is presented. The transducer cell is partitioned at each interface and the partial scattering equations are calculated, considering two interfaces at a ...

Introduction: Power electronic converters such as those for High Energy Physics Experiments (HEPEs) must operate in thermally hostile environment. Heat generated by electronics components must be conveniently dissipated to ensure electrical performances and improve reliability. Due to the high power density, the presence of closed environments, and the requirement of non-thermal interaction with ...

Temperature measurements of the subsurface are available due to hydrocarbon exploration in the project area, where the average drilling depth is about 2-4 km and the deepest well reaches about 8.5 km. Since the data is heavily uneven distributed, standard interpolation techniques did not deliver satisfying results. This is why numerical modeling was applied to assess the thermal regime of the ...

Water Quality Modeling of Drinking Water Storage Reservoir Noardburgum

N. Wolthek[1]
[1]Vitens NV, Zwolle, The Netherlands

The water storage reservoir at the WTP Noardburgum is used to even out demand and supply and ensure a stable drinking water production capacity. At the moment the rectangular reservoir has a single pipeline which serves as an inlet during the fill cycle and as an outlet during the draw cycle. This study aims to examine the current mixing characteristics of the reservoir and to investigate ...

Integrated Solar Thermal Collector with Heat Storage

A.R. Sánchez-Guitard[1], E. Ruiz-Reina[1]
[1]University of Málaga, Málaga, Spain

In this work, we study the design of a new integrated system for Solar Water Heating that combines the solar thermal energy collection (primary circuit) with the heat storage (secondary circuit) into the same device. We have performed different finite element method simulations using COMSOL Multiphysics®, for solving the equations of heat transfer (conduction and convection) and those of fluid ...

Simulations of Micropumps Based on Tilted Flexible Structures - new

[2]Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA

Pumping liquids at small scales is challenging because of the principle of reversibility: in a viscous regime, the flow streamlines through a fixed geometry are the same regardless of flow direction. Recently we developed a class of microfluidic pump designs based on tilted flexible structures that combines the concepts of cilia (flexible elastic elements) and rectifiers (e.g., Tesla pump). We ...

Two Step Study of Flow in an Industrial Pulp Screen, Solved with the COMSOL Multiphysics® Mixer Module - new

R. Wetind[1]
[1]Wetind Technology AB, Alnö, Sweden

An industrial pulp screen is investigated. The dilute pulp is pumped through a screen barrier. In order to avoid the fiber network to plug, it is necessary to 1) fluidize the shear thinning pulp 2) expose the barrier with plug releasing pressure pulses. This work involves a 2-step study. Step 1: The full screen flow is simulated using Mixer Module Frozen Rotor k-. Essential pressure field ...

Modelling of the Dynamical Fluorescent Micro-Thermal Imaging Experiment on the Heat Diffusion in the La5Ca9Cu24O41 Spin Ladder Compound - new

[1]Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands
[2]Department of Physics, University of Cologne, Köln, Germany

The dynamical fluorescent micro-thermal imaging (FMI) experiment has been used to investigate the phonon-magnon interaction in the 1D Heisenberg antiferromagnet La5Ca9Cu24O41. This material shows highly anisotropic heat conductivity due to the efficient magnetic heat transport along the spin ladders in the compound carried by magnetic excitations (magnons). To extract information on the phonon ...

Modeling and Simulation of High Sensitivity CMOS Pressure Sensor Using Free Boundary Circular Diaphragm Embedded on Ring Channel Shaped MOSFET

[1]Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kochi, Kerala, India

Sensors have diverse applications ranging from medical field to space explorations. They convert physical parameters such as temperature, pressure, humidity etc: - into an electrical output. The discovery of piezoresistivity property of silicon and germanium led to miniaturization of pressure sensors. Improvement in the sensitivity is the major factor to be considered while designing pressure ...

Marine Vibrator Bubble Source Simulation and Testing

A. K. Morozov [1],
[1] Teledyne Marine Systems, North Falmouth, MA, USA

Marine Vibrators are a coherent type of sound source, which can be quieter and less harmful for marine habitants than traditional air-gun technology. Such source gives clearer, more precise and higher resolution imaging of the bottom properties due to the coherent signal and streamer array processing. Teledyne Marine Systems is developing a coherent seismic marine sound source technology ...
