Thermal Modelling of Lunar Surface at Regional Scales using COMSOL Multiphysics®

K. Durga Prasad [1], S. V. S. Murty [1], V. K. Rai [1],
[1] Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India

The thermal behavior/heat flow of the Moon provides us an insight into its geophysical character and thermal evolution. The thermal behavior within the uppermost (top few meters) regolith layers is more complex due to their complex geometric, thermal and radiative properties. In order to ... Read More

Magnetic Prospecting Modeling of Seamount with COMSOL Multiphysics

G. Ha, S.-S. Kim [1]
[1] Chungnam National University, Daejon, Korea

In general, seamount magnetic modeling assumes uniform magnetization for the entire construct. The following geologic obervations are often not considered: 1. The internal structure composed of multiple volcanic layers, and 2. Remanent magnetization gained during the magnetic polarity ... Read More

在电池的性能比较过程中总存在温升、恒流比、容量保持率、倍率性等电性能比较,其中影响这些性能的重要参数就是电池的极化大小。然而现实使用中极化很难以量化,仅仅用直流或者交流内阻来表示还显得单一且不具有说服力,所以寻求一种能够量化的手段从而来衡量电池的极化具有重要意义。通过极化的占比分析还可以分析哪一种极化影响较大,从而为电池的设计优化提供可靠的方向指导。 鉴于上述描述,我们开发了一种充放电过程中极化仿真方法及模型。在COMSOL® 软件的一维模型中定义编辑正负极以及隔膜电解液处反应极化方程和积分,然后利用“电池与燃料电池模块 ... Read More
