Modeling the Bacterial Clearance in Capillary Network Using Coupled Stochastic-Differential and Navier-Stokes Equations

A. Atalla[1], and A. Jeremic[1]
[1]McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

The capillary network is a complex-interconnected structure. A single blood cell traveling from the arteriole to a venule via a capillary bed passes through, on average, 40−100 capillary segments. The cardiovascular systems responsible of delivering blood to the tissue under sufficient pressure to exchange materials. This is a two way process, at which nutrients, Oxygen, and other ...

The Effect of a Correlated Surface Roughness and Convection on Heat Conduction

A.F. Emery[1]
[1]Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA

Heat conduction through a slab, 0 ≤ x ≤ W is one dimensional. However, if one of the edges, say x=0, is rough the conduction will be two dimensional. The two dimensionality varies with the correlation length with a maximum at a length approximately 10% of the slab width. The maximum percentage standard deviation of the flux is of the order of 3 time that of the roughness. Monte ...

Study of Compliance Mismatch within a Stented Artery

G. Coppola, and K. Liu
Lakehead University, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Richmond, Hill, Ontario, Canada

The objective of this paper is to study the effects of compliance mismatch in a stented artery. COMSOL Multiphysics is used to tackle this challenging problem involving fluid-structure interaction. The particular effects studied in this paper are the radial displacement of the artery wall, pressure distribution along the studied segment, the factors affecting stress in the fluid and artery ...

Effect of Local Deformation on the Emission Energy of  Quantum Dots in a Flexible Tube

S. Kiravittaya[1], P. Cendula[2], A. Rastelli[2], and O. Schmidt[2]
[1]Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung, Stuttgart, Germany
[2]Institute for Integrative Nanosciences, Dresden, Germany

Strain induced by local deformation of a flexible micrometer-sized semiconductor tube is quantified by modeling a ball pressing on the tube wall. By changing the pressing condition, we are able to change the strain state of the tube wall incorporating self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) in the wall. The QD emission energy is calculated in COMSOL® by solving the Schrödinger wave equation ...

Dynamic Study of Field and Current Distribution in Multifilamentary YBCO Thin Films

F. Grilli[1], A. Lucarelli[2], G. Lüpke[2], T. Haugan[3], and P. Barnes[3]

[1]Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, QC, Canada
[2]College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA, USA
[3]Air Force Research Laboratory

We have developed a model for computing current and field distributions in multifilamentary superconducting thin films subjected to the simultaneous effects of transport ac current and applied dc field perpendicular to the sample. The model is implemented in COMSOL’s PDE module (general form) and solves Maxwell equations using a highly non-linear resistivity to describe the superconductor ...

Image Based-Mesh Generation for Realistic Simulation of theTranscranial Current Stimulation

[1] Simpleware Ltd, Exeter, Devon, UK
[2] Department of Biomedical Eng., The City College of New York, New York, NY, USA

This paper will discuss the comprehensive solution adopted for converting the 3D digital/medical images directly into the computational model. The workflow using Simpleware Software – ScanIP and + ScanFE – will be illustrated including the option for directly exporting fully compatible models to COMSOL Multiphysics. The extra functionality that allows introduction, positioning and ...

Study of ER Non-equilibrium Behavior with COMSOL

L. Zhou
Fudan University, Shanghai, China

COMSOL Multiphysics is a powerful tool in theoretical study. Lei Zhou, Jiping Huang and other professors in Physics Department, Fudan University have achieved some exciting results of soft, tunable metamaterials. We use it to study non-equilibrium behavior of rhoeological (ER) fluids and polar molecule dominated rheological (PM-ER) fluids. Numerical solutions using the Onsager’s principle would ...

The 3D Mixed-Dimensional Quench Model of a High Aspect Ratio High Temperature Superconducting Coated Conductor Tape

[2]North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA
[3]Advanced Magnet Lab, Palm Bay, FL, USA
[4]ITER Organization/Magnet Division, Saint Paul-lez-Durance, France

A successful development of an effective quench detection and protection method for a high temperature superconducting (HTS) coil based on a HTS coated conductor tape lays on a thorough understanding of its slowly propagating, three-dimension (3D) quench behavior. Toward this goal, a 3D micrometer scale finite element (FE) thermo-magnetostatic HTS tape model is developed and implemented in ...

Optimisation Of Filament Geometry For Gas Sensor Application

S. Gidon, M. Brun, and S. Nicoletti
CEA Minatec, Optronic Department, Grenoble, France

Monitoring of indoor CO2 concentration is of particular interest to detect room occupancy in order to optimise power consumptions of building. One technological approach is to use optical detection using specific absorption lines of CO2 molecules in the infrared domain close to 4.2 μm. Key features for a wider use in public and private buildings are power consumption and price. Such optical ...

A General Method for Solving Equations - The Dynamical Functional Particle Method

M. Gulliksson, and S. Edvardsson
Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall, Sweden

Given any equation L(u)=0, e.g. a partial differential equation, it can be considered to be the stationary solution of a time dependent equation (in fact, time need only to be fictitious time not real time). Our approach is to choose the time dependence in analogy with an oscillating particle system including damping in order to damp out the time derivatives and attain a stationary solution ...
