An inactive Demonstration facility for the integrated pyroprocess, named High temperature Electrorefining (HTER) facility is in developing stage. This facility is equipped with several types of pyroprocess equipment such as electro-refiner, salt and cadmium distillation equipment, scraping equipment and tilting equipment inside an Argon cell. To operate the argon cell safely, all generated ...

Efficient Generation of Surface Plasmon Polaritons with Asymmetric Nano-structures

J. Chen
Peking University
China

This paper covers the following: * All-Optical Light Modulation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) is achieved using asymmetric single nanoslits. A high on/off switching ratio of >20 dB and phase variation of >? were observed with the device lateral dimension of only about 2 ?m. * Efficient unidirectional excitation of SPP as well as beam splitting are achieved using the dielectric–film ...

The mass and recoverability of oil and gas in unconventional reservoirs strongly depend on the understanding the petrophysical properties of the rocks at a large range of scales. Three-dimensional imaging is capable of unveiling the detailed microstructures within the rocks down to the nanometer scale. Using a multiscale imaging protocol, a Devonian shale rock sample with heterogeneities is ...

3D Simulation of Air-Glass Heat Exchange in a Set of Vials

G. Mongatti[1], A. Borelli[1]
[1]Marchesini Group, Pianoro, Italy

In this model a three-dimensional heat transfer analysis was performed by using COMSOL Multiphysics\' Heat Transfer Module. The model is about the heating of a set of vials (Figure 1) in a current of hot air in the laminar regime. We used time dependent studies to predict the thermal behavior of the glass and to estimate the temperatures in the various points of the bottles at various times. ...

Optimizing Fuel Cell Design with COMSOL Multiphysics

Chin-Hsien Cheng[1]
[1]Renewable Energy RD Center, Chung-Hsin Electric & Machinery, Taiwan

Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) were investigated using COMSOL Multiphysics with the AC/DC Module and Chemical Engineering Module. Simulation may be used to increase the performance while decreasing the cost of the catalyst later (CL). Experimental validation of single and multi-layer CL was performed for varied PBI electrolyte content. The validated model was used to investigate ...

Use of Simulation in the Development of Next-generation Measurement Standards for Radiation Dosimetry

R. E. Tosh[1], H. Chen-Mayer[1]
[1]NIST, Gaithersburg, MD, USA

Calibration of field instruments used in radiation treatment clinics is currently traceable to NIST primary standards via protocols involving static, flat-field radiation beams. By contrast, radiation beams prescribed for treating cancer incorporate temporal and spatial modulation strategies in order to maximize dose to the tumor while sparing healthy tissue. Differences in the detector ...

Temperature Compensated AIN Based SAW Simulation using COMSOL

We have modeled surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices composed of piezoelectric materials: aluminum nitride (AlN), lithium niobate (LiNbO3), and quartz. These materials are often used in RF filters and wireless sensors, which require temperature compensation for stability. Using our COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation with published values of thermal expansion for each material, we simulated the TCF ...

Modeling Plant Morphodynamics in Predefined COMSOL Multiphysics® Interface

S. Nikolaev[1], A. Trubuil[2]

[2]Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Jouy-en-Josas, France

We used a predefined COMSOL Multiphysics® interface to imitate biological growth and shape change (morphodynamics). We found a set of parameters that supply observed morphodynamics for an Arabidopsis embryo during its transition from globular to heart stage.

Modelling of Non-Equilibrium Effects in Solvent-Enhanced Spontaneous Imbibition in Fractured Reservoirs

M. Chahardowli[1], R. Farajzadeh[1] , H. Bruining[1]
[1]TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands

In fractured reservoirs, much of the oil is stored in low permeable matrix blocks that are surrounded by a high permeability fracture network. Therefore, production from fractured reservoir depends on the transfer between fracture and matrix, which is critically dependent on their interaction. COMSOL Multiphysics® was implemented to model the process of penetration of the aqueous phase into an ...

Capacitive Deionization for Desalinating Complex Streams - new

[2]Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium

Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a desalination technology which is based on the storage of ions in the electrical double layer of a pair of oppositely polarized porous carbon electrodes, which are usually assembled using activated carbon particles (Figure 1). It is efficiently deployed for desalinating water with moderate salt content (eg in domestic water softening)[1]. To broaden its ...
