Prior work has analyzed the case of planar Poiseuille ferrofluid flows in planar ducts stressed by uniform sinusoidally applied fields transverse and perpendicular to the duct axis. The coupled linear and angular momentum conservation equations with imposed magnetic flux density, Bx and magnetic field Hz result in a fourth-order system that was numerically solved using the shooting method in ...

When milk is taken out of a refrigerator it has to be heated up to 37°C. The standard solution is to put the bottle in a bath of warm water and wait. The goal is quickly to achive a uniform temperature of 37°C, without ever exceeding 40°C. Using COMSOL Multiphysics and a measurement setup for calibration, we show that this can be improfed by using variable heating. By choosing heating ...

Reduction of the engine vibration and the dynamic forces transmitting from engine to the automotive body structure has always been an important part of automotive research. Automobile engineers face the task of creating a mechanism to absorb these vibrations and provide a smooth ride. The usage of Motor Mounts is the best solution for dampening the effects of vibrations and oscillations. This ...

We applied the Hot Wire (HW) technique and COMSOL Multiphysics software to study the heat transfer of a homogeneous and isotropic solid material. The HW technique is based on the application of a linear power density modulated by a rectangular pulse of heat, in a specific time period. The power density is applied over the symmetry axis of the sample to produce a radial heat flux and investigate ...

In this study, COMSOL®4.2a is used to model a microwave heating process in a TE10 rectangular waveguide. The sample consists of a small cylindrical Ca-alginate gel (D = 8 mm, H = 10 mm) inoculated with bacteria Escherichia Coli K12. The sample is placed along the microwave propagation direction into the waveguide. Maxwell’s equations and heat transfer are coupled to a microbial inactivation ...

The understanding of pH-sensitive hydrogel swelling response in different buffer environmental condition is essential for its use in different practical applications. This necessitates its simulation in steady state and transient conditions. This paper mainly deals with the details of the numerical simulation performed by developing coupled formulation of chemo-electro-mechanical behavior of ...

Recovery of oil by gas injection is usually inefficient due to the low viscosity of the gas, which results in bypassing of the oil. By adding surfactant solutions it is possible to get in-situ foam formation. Foam has a much higher “viscosity” and hence does not bypass the oil, leading to enhanced oil recovery. In this context, the foam propagation is studied experimentally and theoretically. We ...
