Der Marangoni-Effekt (Marangoni 1871) oder Grenzflächenkonvektion kann in fluiden mehrphasigen Systemen auftreten, in denen eine Abhängigkeit der Grenzflächenspannung von der Temperatur oder der Konzentration einer gelösten Substanz besteht. Temperaturoder Konzentrationsgradienten in der Grenzfläche führen zur Ausbildung von Spannungsgradienten. Diese beeinflussen die ...

Electric well logging was the first logging method used below ground in boreholes by the petroleum industry. Of all the rock parameters measured by logging tools, the electrical resistivity is of particular importance. Resistivity measurements are essential for determining the relative amount of hydrocarbons in a formation.

Boundary value problems posed over thin solids are amenable to a dimensional reduction in that one or more spatial variables may be eliminated from the governing equation, resulting in significant computational gains with minimal loss in accuracy. Extant dimensional reduction techniques unfortunately rely on representing the solid as a hypothetical mid-surface plus a possibly varying thickness. ...

Tessellated models are more and more used in several engineering fields. The need to use such models to quickly perform computer simulations related to coupled physical phenomena, implies the use of dedicated software, allowing to solve, into an integrated environment, multiphysics problems. In the present work, COMSOL Multiphysics® has been used and its ability to handle tessellated models ...

This paper deal of the forming process applied to the thermoplastic composites. A new thermoforming process that uses rubber particles collection as flexible mould was presented and numerically modeled. A characterization of the rubber in particles form was previously performed to value the material parameters in the user-defined hyperelastic constitutive laws employed in the FEM (Finite Element ...

Large deflection actuators are becoming increasingly important for microsystems. Since actuation forces are usually small, large deflection actuators usually require flexures with low stiffness. Rectangular serpentine flexures are often used for such actuators due to their low stiffness and large linear deflection range. In this paper we investigate the performance of curved serpentine flexures ...

COMSOL Multiphysics is offering an important alternative to home codes for modeling and simulation of complex problems with including coupled effects on heat and mass transfer. The present work focuses on low Prandtl number fluid melts subject to symmetry breaking and transition to unsteady regimes. These configurations are for practical interest in crystal growth industry, namely the Bridgman ...

We address the use of magnetic fields, forces, and materials for medical purposes. In particular, the treatment of osteochondral lesions is aimed for. To support ongoing activities in this field of research, last advances in using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for the simulation of relevant processes, like magnetic targeting and magnetic fixation are reported. The availability of advanced ...

Mineral precipitation on to the quartz surface of the lamp jackets in UV disinfection process (fouling) has been recognized as a major problem for UV radiation delivery during disinfection operation. Fouling behavior was observed to be induced thermally and influenced by hydraulic character of the UV disinfection configuration. Fouling process involves momentum, heat, and mass transport within ...
