Providing an Entry Length in Heterogeneous Catalytic Reactors with Fast Diffusion

D. Dalle Nogare[1] and P. Canu[1]

[1]Department of Chemical Engineering Principles and Practice, University of Padova, Padova, Italy

This work investigates the effects of boundary conditions on the species profiles in heterogeneous catalysis, with low Péclet systems. Hydrogen combustion in Helium was chosen because of the high diffusivities. Furthermore, already at T=300°C over a Pt catalyst, kinetics is very fast and the composition gradients at the inlet extremely steep. The issue is analyzed with 1D models, ...

Stresses in Carotid Plaques Using MRI-based Fluid Structure Interaction Models

S.A. Kock [1], E. Fründ [1], W.Y. Kim [1], and J.V. Nygaard [2]
[1] Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark,
[2] Aarhus University, Denmark

Using magnetic resonance images, a model was created of an atherosclerotic plaque in a patient. A fluid-structure interaction analysis was then carried out in order to determine principal stresses in the protective fibrous cap. Results indicate stresses at high blood pressure in excess of 300 kPa, the established cap rupture strength. The technique could prove to be of great value to ...

Finite Element Analysis of an Enzymatic Biofuel Cell: The Orientations of a chip inside a blood artery

C. Wang[1], Y. Parikh[1], Y. Song[1], and J. Yang[1]
[1]Mechanical & Materials Science Engineering, Florida International University, Miami, Florida, USA

Output performance of an implantable enzymatic biofuel cell (EBFC) with three- dimensional highly dense micro-electrode arrays has been simulated with a finite element analysis approach. The purpose of this research is to optimize the orientation of this EBFC chip inside a blood artery such that the mass transport of glucose around all the micro-electrodes can be improved and hence output ...

Linear Convection and Conduction in Cylinders of Water Exposed to Periodic Thermal Stimuli

R.E. Tosh[1], and H.H. Chen-Mayer[1]
[1]National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA

Primary reference standards for determining absorbed dose to water in radiotherapy beams used at cancer clinics and hospitals ultimately must make reference to the temperature change in water produced by ionizing radiation. The most direct experimental technique for this purpose is water calorimetry. Since the dose distributions delivered by such beams are nonuniform, temperature signals ...

Untersuchung der Polarisationseigenschaften einer mikrostrukturierten optischen Faser unter dem Einfluss äußerer Belastung

A. Unger[1], and K.H. Witte[2]
[1] FH-Wiesbaden, Fachbereich Physikalische Technik, Rüsselsheim;
[2] FH-Wiesbaden, Fachbereich Elektrotechnik, Rüsselsheim

Mit Hilfe des Softwareprogramms COMSOL zur Modellierung physikalischer Vorgänge wurden die Polarisationseigenschaften einer mikrostrukturierten Singlemodefaser untersucht. Ausgangspunkt der Simulationen waren experimentelle Untersuchungen, nach denen diese Faser eine ungewöhnlich starke Doppelbrechung aufwies. Die Doppelbrechung der Faser und damit ihre Fähigkeit zur Polarisationserhaltung ...

Designing an Array of Nanocalorimeters for Screening Biochemical Interactions

F. Torres
Palo Alto Research Center

In this presentation we present our analysis of the PARC Nanocalorimeter. Calorimetry is basically the measuring of heat of chemical reactions or physical changes. Nanocalorimetry is Calorimetry at the Nanometer scale. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is a special type of Calorimeter, it consists of arrays of Nanocalorimeters. The PARC Nanocalorimeter is intended to be used for screening biochemical ...

Thermo-fluid-dynamic evaluation of a microsystem to analyse radioactive solutions

G. Janssens-Maenhout
Joint Research Centre Ispra
Ispra, Italy

It has become common place to use micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) to evaluate the chemical properties of solutions. However, such microchips have not yet been applied to the analysis of radioactive solutions, for the purpose of nuclear safeguards, in the nuclear reprocessing industry. Implementing MEMS in this area results in a reduced volume of the sample to be analysed. This has many ...

The pianistic touch: FEMLAB modeling of a grand piano action

Riccardo Ferrari
University of Trieste
Trieste, Italy

In this presentation we will show how to partially model a grand piano action. Then we will apply different touches to this virtual action and try to hear any difference. --------------------------------- Riccardo Ferrari was one of the keynote speakers at the COMSOL User's Conference, fall 2005 in Milano

Benchmark between CPO (Charged Particle Optics) and COMSOL Multiphysics

J.-M. Barois, and C. Goulmy
PHOTONIS, Brive, France

Streak tubes are widely used in high-speed signal analysis; they give spatial, temporal and intensity information about one single event. Time resolutions of 0.7 pico-second can be achieved and in that time-domain, PHOTONIS tubes are second-to-none.Applications are numerous and range from plasma physic to femtosecond laser applications. In streak tubes, electrons move from the photocathode to the ...

A Highly Effective Cellular Manipulation and Sorting Platform

A. Kose, B. Fischer, and H. Koser
Electrical Engineering Department, Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA

Ferrofluids are stable colloidal suspensions of nanosize magnetic particles in an organic or aqueous medium. Suspending nonmagnetic particles within a ferrofluid has led to numerous new areas of study. The simultaneous action of magnetic and hydrodynamic forces is responsible for the complex behavior of nonmagnetic particles within ferrofluids. As a result of nonzero fluid magnetization, a ...
