[1]State University of Maringá, Maringá, Paraná, Brazil

The hydraulic flocculates are employed in water treatment plants (WTPs), but may present problems during the mixing stage reducing the efficiency of treatment. In this context modeling of a hydraulic flocculate using COMSOL and a 1:10 scale model of the Maringá-PR Brazil city WTP flocculate was done. The WTP flocculate is shown in figure 1 and the model illustrating the acrylic flocculate ...

Ectopeptidases are commonly accepted to be a means of clearing active peptides. However, studies have shown that they can also regulate peptide activity. We have developed a technique of electrokinetic push-pull perfusion (Ek-PPP, Figure 1) to examine this largely unexplored mechanism of modulation of peptide function. We push the neuropeptide galanin through organotypic hippocampal slice ...

Singlet Oxygen Modeling of BPD Mediated-PDT Using COMSOL

T.C. Zhu[1], B. Liu[1], X. Liang[1]
[1]University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Singlet oxygen (1O2) is the major cytotoxic agent during photodynamic therapy (PDT). A previously developed model that incorporates the diffusion equation for the light transport in tissue and the macroscopic kinetic equations for the generation of the singlet oxygen, can be used to numerically calculate the distance-dependent reacted 1O2 using finite-element method (FEM). The formula of reacted ...

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 ...

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. ...

Numerical Simulation of Temperature and Stress Fields in the Rock Heating Experiment

[1]Technical University in Liberec, Liberec, Czech Republic

Presented work is motivated by pre-realization phase of rock heating experiment in underground, testing properties for cyclic energy storage. Heating unit, installed in large borehole from end of a tunnel, is fixed to the rock face with the geo-polymer. Rest of the borehole is filled with isolation material. We used the Heat Transfer Module and the Structural Mechanics Module in COMSOL for ...

Micro-grippers find applications in micro-robotics, microsurgery, micro-fluidics, micro-relays, assembling and miniature medical instrumentation. Actuation principle involved may be electrothermal, electrostatic, piezoelectric, shape memory and electromagnetic. It has been found that thermal actuation provides greater displacement at low voltages when compared to other mechanisms. A 3-D ...

[1]Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Sant Longowal Institute of Engineering Technology Longowal, Punjab, India

Electromagnetic wave analysis of waveguide has been done in this paper with the help of Finite Element Method (FEM) based COMSOL Multiphysics. The design is further extended by placing conductor on a dielectric slab included in the waveguide to form a shielded microstrip transmission line. The simulated models are analyzed to determine the wave propagation characteristics. The validation is ...
