Multiphysics Analysis of Normal Conducting RF Cavities for High Intensity Proton Accelerators

[1]Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Batavia, IL, USA

Normal conducting cavities are typically used in the front end of proton accelerators to get the beam accelerated to velocities approximately a few tenths of the speed of light, where superconducting cavities can then be used to accelerate the beam to the speed of light. The warm part of a typical proton accelerator would contain a radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) and several buncher cavities. ...

We have modeled surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices composed of piezoelectric materials: aluminum nitride (AlN), lithium niobate (LiNbO3), and quartz. These materials are often used in RF filters and wireless sensors, which require temperature compensation for stability. Using our COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation with published values of thermal expansion for each material, we simulated the TCF ...

[2]Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Jouy-en-Josas, France

We used a predefined COMSOL Multiphysics® interface to imitate biological growth and shape change (morphodynamics). We found a set of parameters that supply observed morphodynamics for an Arabidopsis embryo during its transition from globular to heart stage.

The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is a widely adopted model organism for studying various neurobiological processes at the molecular and cellular level in vivo. With a small, flexible, and continuously moving body, the manipulation of C.elegans becomes a challenging task. A lab-on-a-chip (LOC),is a device that integrates one or several laboratory functions on a single chip of only mm to a few ...

Numerical Simulation for Landfill Stabilization Process considering Degradation of Organic Chemical Compounds in Waste

Hiroyuki ISHIMORI[1]
[1]Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

This presentation describes the numerical simulation model where gas/liquid two-phase porous media flow equations are coupled to multicomponent gas-phase transport and water-phase transport equations in COMSOL Multiphysics. This is done in order to predict the landfill stabilization process considering degradation of organic chemical compounds in waste.

Multiscale Model of Human Pathogen Growth on Fresh Produce - new

A. Warning[1], A. K. Datta[1]
[1]Department of Biological & Environmental Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA

Predictive food microbiology currently first requires experimental data for growth on fresh produce and then fitting an empirical or semi-empirical model to the data, making extrapolation to other conditions (temperature, type of produce) difficult. Herein, we develop a mechanistic model for the growth of human pathogenic bacteria (Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella spp.) on spinach using ...

Simulating Organogenesis in COMSOL: Towards Efficient 3D Simulations of Organogenesis

D. Barac [1], Z. Karimadini [1], R. Croce [1], D. Iber [1]
[1] Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE), ETH Zurich, Basel, Switzerland

One of the major challenges in biology concerns the integration of data across length and time scales into a consistent framework: how do macroscopic properties and functionalities arise from the molecular regulatory networks ­ and how do they evolve? A deeper understanding of morphogenesis and organogenesis in particular is required to advance tissue engineering. Recent advancements in 3D ...

研究头部损伤机理是对运动撞击中脑损伤进行预测的有效手段。数学模型是分析损伤实验数据、预测人员碰撞损伤程度的唯一方法,但现有的头部损伤有限元模型基于尸体实验数据,且忽略脑组织结构的各向异性。本项目旨在提出并实现一种以损伤生物力学为基础、结合磁共振扫描 DTI 的轴突走向信息的有限元力学模型。提取脑外伤前的弥散张量成像信息,实现深入到轴突水平有限元力学模型的建立,在有限元模拟中采用非线性超弹性力学模型,并植入 NSGAII 最优化方法对有限元模型的材料参数进行优化,从而提高模型的稳定性和计算精度;将计算预测结果与损伤后 DTI 的 FA 值所表现的轴突断裂情况进行验证, 探索活体环境下碰撞损伤中脑轴突的损伤性变化,从而获得脑外伤损伤程度与力学因素之间的关系,为脑外伤损伤程度的预测和脑外伤损伤标准的校正提供精确完整的信息。本项目的研究成果将在汽车碰撞的乘员防护设计上有重要的理论指导价值。 ...

现在 COMSOL Multiphysics® 中对时域问题的处理大多数通过离散时间来处理,比如微波炉中加热一杯水,杯壁由两半不同介电常数的玻璃组成,杯子在托盘带动下旋转,对杯子中的水进行受热分析。传统的解法是将要分析的过程离散为一定步长的时间点,每算完一个时间点将杯子旋转一定的角度,然后在求解器中设置此次计算结果作为下一个时间点的初值。如果时间步长足够短,便可以模拟水的受热情况。这种做法的不足之处是需要调用 MATLAB 联合求解,计算时间较长。而且还有一个问题是在不同的时间点,由于场分布不同,杯子的位置不同,COMSOL 中剖分的网格应该是不同的,不同的网格节点值如何映射是 COMSOL 中没有解决的问题。我们如果能够把杯子位置的改变转化为对应节点上物质属性参数的变化,将杯子的旋转等效为杯子不动,而杯壁的介电常数随时间周期变化 ...
