Musculoskeletal mineralized tissues (MMTs), e.g. bone, are hierarchical composite materials. Their effective elastic properties at different scales are of interest for computational studies of the MMT’s response to mechanical loading but also to realistically simulate implant osseointegration. We combine multi-scale and multi-modal experimental techniques with mathematical modelling of MMTs ...

Lorentz Force Velocimetry (LFV) is a non-contact measurement technique used to determine flow rates in electrically conducting fluids by exposing the flow to an external magnetic field and measuring the Lorentz force acting on the magnet system. Typically, for LFV applications real and complex permanent magnet systems with inhomogeneous magnetic fields interact with the fluid. In this paper, ...

A resonant MEMS sensor for viscosity and mass density measurements of liquids was modeled. The device is based on Lorentz-force excitation and features an integrated piezoresistive readout. The core sensing element is a rectangular vibrating plate suspended by four beam springs. The liquid surrounding the plate influences the resonant behavior of the system. Thus, evaluating the properties of ...

COMSOL Multiphysics Modelling for Measurement Device of Electrical Resistivity in Laboratory Test Cell

Cemagref
Antony, France

Bioreactor landfill is based on a homogeneous distribution of the moisture content to increase waste biodegradation. Most of studies have shown that Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) can be a suitable method to study water content variation (2D and 3D). ERT is influenced by many physical parameters and no single relationship with volumetric water content was yet established for Municipal ...

Multiphysics Modeling of Nanoparticle Detection - Current Status and Collaboration Sought

[2]Institut Jozef Stefan, Ljubljana, Slovenia

We are developing nanoparticle detector for airborn particles. The detection principle is based on condensation of nanoparticles forming micron sized water droplets and detection of the droplets by a capacitive type nanodetector. We have successfully performed some experimental evaluations of the detection principle and are in the stage of optimization of several parts of the system. As ...

An Improved Model for High Temperature Inductive Heating

S. A. Halvorsen, and N. Kleinknecht
Teknova AS
Kristiansand, Norway

An axially symmetric multiphysics model for industrial induction furnaces has successfully been converted from COMSOL Multiphysics version 3.5a to version 4.2. The model combines computation of magnetic fields, heat transfer and thermal stresses. The inner part of the furnace is described by a few discrete state variables. While the current in the induction coil is input in COMSOL, the model ...

Physical and mechanical studies of Alcantara® have shown very pronounced anisotropic nonlinear features. Using constitutive equations borrowed from the modelling of biological tissues like tendons and/or arteries under the form of hyperelastic free-energy functions, a good representation of such mechanical features can be obtained. In particular, a combination between the optimization module ...

Superparamagnetic nanoparticles have a wide range of applications in modern electric devices. Recent developments have identi fied them as components for a new type of magnetoresistance sensor. We propose a model for the numeric evaluation of the sensor properties. Based on the solutions of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation for a set of homogeneously magnetized spheres arranged in highly ...

Designing Magnetic Coils from the Inside Out

C. Crawford, and D. Wagner
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY

Traditionally the design cycle for magnetic fields involves guessing at a reasonable conductor and magnetic material configuration, using finite element analysis (FEA) software to calculate the resulting field, modifying the configuration, and iterating to produce the desired results. We take the opposite approach of specifying the required magnetic field, imposing it as a boundary condition on ...
