[3]Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), Lausanne, Switzerland

Mathematical Modeling has a long history in developmental biology. Advances in experimental techniques and computational algorithms now permit the development of increasingly more realistic models of organogenesis. In particular, 3D geometries of developing organs have recently become ... Read More

Biologic Tissues Properties Deduction Using an Opto-Mechanical Model of the Human Eye

A. V. Maurer [1], D. P. Enfrun [1], C. O. Zuber [1], R. Rozsnyo [2],
[1] R&D, Kejako, Plan-les-ouates, GE, Switzerland
[2] MNCM, HES-SO, GE, Switzerland

The visual accommodation is a complex biomechanical & optical process. Today in vivo imaging technologies do not allow to measure the eye components material properties, such as the refractive index or the stiffness: these properties are essential to understand and diagnose the effect of ...

Asymmetry Induced Terminal Voltage Improvement in Mg2Si-based Thermoelectric Unicouple

P. Priyadarshi [1], J. Bahl [1], B. Muralidharan [1]
[1] Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India

Thermoelectric power generation has been envisioned as a clean energy alternative to conventional thermal to electric power generation for decades due to its noiseless and low-cost operation. However, a typical thermoelectric generator suffers from low device efficiency, so it has been a ... Read More

Advanced Topics in Acoustics Simulation

M. J. Herring Jensen [1]
[1] COMSOL A/S, Lyngby, Denmark

In this session, we will discuss and showcase a few examples of advanced acoustics applications. In this context, “advanced” means problems that cannot simply be modeled “out-of-the-box,” but require the flexibility and strengths of COMSOL Multiphysics® software. Topics include: • ... Read More
