Car Windshield Antenna Effect on a Cable Harness

Modern cars have rear-windshield FM antennas to play FM radio. The radiation emitted from an antenna induces an electric current on the outer surface of any cable harnesses in the car, which can have negative effects. This model uses the RF Module to compute the far-field radiation pattern of the antenna, by enclosing the car in perfectly matched layers separated by an air domain. The electric ...

Designing a Waveguide Diplexer for the 5G Mobile Network

A diplexer is a device that combines or splits signals into two different frequency bands, widely used in mobile communication systems. This model simulates splitting properties using a simplified 2D geometry. The computed S-parameters and electric fields at the lower and upper bands will show the diplexer characteristics in the Ka-band.

Energy Conservation with Thermoviscous Acoustics

This small tutorial model studies energy conservation in a small conceptual test setup. The model has an inlet and outlet and a Helmholtz resonator with a very narrow neck. The acoustics in the narrow neck are modeled with Thermoviscous Acoustic for a detailed analysis of the thermal and viscous losses. In order to study and verify energy conservation, the model compares the total dissipated ...

Using COMSOL Models Together with Curve Fitting

This example exemplifies how curve fitting can be performed in COMSOL Multiphysics®, and how this can be applied to your modeling. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Curve Fitting of Experimental Data with COMSOL Multiphysics](".

Optimal Cooling of a Tubular Reactor

Maximizing product yield is a main task in chemical reaction engineering. This can be especially challenging if the desired product, once formed, can be consumed by further reactions. This example investigates such a series reaction as it occurs in a tubular reactor. You will start by setting up the tightly coupled mass and energy balance equations describing the reactor using predefined ...

Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve

This model performs a topological optimization for a Tesla microvalve. A Tesla microvalve inhibits backwards flow using friction forces rather than moving parts. The design can be optimized by distributing a specific amount of material within the modeling domain. The goal is to maximize the ratio of the pressure drop for the forwards and backwards flow across the device.

Lamella Mixer

At the macroscopic level, systems usually mix fluids using mechanical actuators or turbulent 3D flow. At the microscale level, however, neither of these approaches is practical or even possible. This model demonstrates the mixing of fluids using laminar-layered flow in a MEMS mixer. This model analyzes the steady-state condition of the fluid flow as well as the convection and diffusion of a ...

Test Bench Car Interior

Sound is generated by a point source located in the wall of this test bench car interior. The sound pressure level response at a point of measurement is investigated for a range of frequencies and four different mesh resolutions. The model is first solved with the default direct solvers. Finally, it is shown how to set up an iterative solver which is efficient for large problems and the finest ...

Thermally Induced Creep

Creep is an inelastic time-dependent deformation which occurs when a material is subjected to stress at sufficiently high temperature, say 40% of the melting point or more. Experimental creep data (using constant stress and temperature) often display three different types of behavior for the creep strain rate as function of time: In the initial primary creep regime the creep strain rate ...

Polymerization in Multijet Tubular Reactor

In a polymerization reactor for polyester manufacturing, the mixing in the reactor is achieved by impinging turbulent jets of reactants onto each other. The turbulence affects the reaction kinetics and quality of the polymer linkage. Turbulent flows involving rapid reaction kinetics are quite common in the production of polymers, and the complex interplay between fluid dynamics and fast ...
