Multiphysics Modeling of Sensors in Off-Highway Applications

Sensors are the eyes and ears of any machine. They gather the relevant information for machines to act and operate. They are also an important part of the feedback system. There are quite a few challenges to integrate the sensor into the machine and ensure it works as intended. It is also challenging to ensure that the sensor operates within given operating and environmental constraints. One of the key objectives in today’s market conditions is to minimize the design time and bring forward the solution faster than the competition. The physics-based, component-level modeling approach offers unique insights into the sensing mechanism, which can be nonintuitive. This approach also provides the designer with additional levers during the design phase, essentially leading to time and cost savings. In this talk, I will discuss how multiphysics simulations can aid in the design and integration process of various sensors, including pressure sensors, radar, and magnetic and ultrasonic sensors.

Acoustics and Vibration

Get a brief overview of acoustics modeling and its applications, including exhaust and muffler systems; gearbox noise; electric motor noise; car cabin acoustics; microphones; mobile devices; loudspeakers; and addressing various phenomena, such as vibroacoustics, electroacoustics, and aeroacoustics. In this session, we will discuss some of the main aspects of modeling acoustic phenomena, like the analysis of the generation, propagation, reflection, transmission, scattering, and absorption of acoustic waves in solids as well as porous and fluid media. Learn how to simulate structural vibrations and acoustics in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, as well as how these and other phenomena can be coupled with other mechanical systems.

Modeling Batteries and Battery Packs

Learn how to effectively model batteries and battery packs using COMSOL Multiphysics®. In this minicourse, we will discuss the detailed electrochemistry approach and lumped model approaches to modeling batteries. With the help of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, we will also demonstrate how modeling can be used for charge and discharge analysis, abuse modeling, and the thermal management of battery systems.

Modeling Electric Machines

This session will discuss the details of modeling electrical machines and different multiphysics aspects using COMSOL Multiphysics®. During the session, we will focus on modeling different types of electric motors, such as induction motors, permanent magnet motors, LVDT, generators, alternators, magnetic gears, bearings, electromagnetic switches, and more. We will also discuss how to compute winding and core losses for thermal analysis in order to address the multiphysics aspects of these machines. See how electromagnetic forces can be coupled with structural mechanics and acoustics to predict electric machinery noise.

Chemical Reaction Engineering

In this minicourse, you will learn how to define chemical kinetics, thermodynamic properties, and transport properties for models of reacting systems using the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module. We will address topics including homogeneous and surface reactions, diffusion and convection in diluted and concentrated solutions, thermal effects on transport and reactions, and mass and heat transfer in heterogeneous catalysis.

Multiphysics Analysis for Thermal Applications

Explore the capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® for thermal applications such as electronic cooling, HVAC systems, heat treatment, the thermal expansion of structural components, reaction systems, and more. During this minicourse, we will cover how to simulate different modes of heat transfer. We will also discuss the coupling of heat transfer phenomena with different physics to cater to your applications with the built-in interfaces of COMSOL Multiphysics®, such as conjugate heat transfer, electromagnetic heating, phase change, and thermal expansion.

Statics and Dynamics for Structures

In this minicourse, we will address the modeling of stresses, strains, and deflections in solid materials and mechanisms. Stationary, transient, and frequency-domain simulations will be covered. Shells, membranes, beams, and trusses will also be introduced. If you are interested in learning about the Structural Mechanics Module and Multibody Dynamics Module, this minicourse is for you.
