There is a great need for an effective drug treatment of the posterior eye, as the major reason for visual disability in industrial countries is Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). In USA alone, there are almost 2 million people affected by AMD . A virtual pharmacokinetic 3D model of the human eye is built to address this problem, using COMSOL Multiphysics® software, based on the Finite ...

Effective suspension and settling are critical for controlling biomass retention in a biogas digester. This paper developed a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model to simulate the hydrodynamic characteristics of multiphase flow in biogas digester. This is carried out by using COMSOL Multiphysics® software for understanding the behavior of slurries of different viscosity. This study helps to ...

The Purpose of this paper is to develop a thermal model using COMSOL Multiphysics® software that aims to get an idea of the heat flow around the ASIC, as well as to address the thermal issues for integrated circuits at the tongue board. However, we need sources of heat simulations to map the tab to establish its thermal mapping. This led us to perform simulations at each ASIC of the tab that ...

An analysis to quantify the flow inside the narrow channels of an ISS (International Space Station) CDRA (Carbon Dioxide Removal Assembly) adsorbent bed is presented. The CDRA contains two pelletized adsorbent beds to remove CO2 respired by the crew. Heaters and associated fins inside the adsorbent beds form many small parallel channels which are rectangular in cross section. The channels are ...

In this experiment, the performance of a Printed Circuit Heat Exchanger (PCHE) was studied using COMSOL Multiphysics® software. PCHEs are diffusion bonded heat exchangers containing semicircular, chemically etched flow paths. Helium was used as the working fluid on both the hot and cold sides. A simplified model was used in the simulation, and the results were compared to experimental results. ...

This work is aimed to demonstrate how variation of geometries' parameters would affect the fluid loading effect in water using COMSOL Multiphysics and compared with analytical data. When a structure is placed in water, the interaction between the water and the structure plays an important role in determining the amount of fluid loading mass. The calculated results of added mass of the common ...

Calculations were carried out for the water model of the investigated tundish, represented on a scale 1:3. Numerical calculations enable to estimate the fluid flow velocities, pahtlines and other parameters. Calculations were done for two different grids. Based on the results, the flow structure in the investigated tundish was obtained.

In recent years the thermal behavior of electric machines is an attractive research topic. Due to the complexity of the problem, several approaches that exploit FEM analysis have been developed and presented in literature. In this research a 3D thermo-fluid dynamic simulation of an electric machine equipped with rubber belts directly applied on its shaft has been performed through COMSOL ...
