Designers of electro-optic modulators and related devices often use separate tools to study the optical and electrical portions of the device. The flexibility of COMSOL Multiphysics makes it possible to construct unified models of EO phenomena including realistic waveguide profiles and anisotropic material properties. We demonstrate the use of the RF Module to compute both RF and optical ...

Development of very high speed integrated circuits is currently of great interest for today\'s technologies. This paper presents the quasi-TEM approach for the accurate parameters extraction of multiconductor transmission lines interconnect in single, two, and three-layered dielectric regions using the finite element method (FEM). We illustrate that FEM is accurate and effective for modeling ...

Aluminum alloys 5000 series are widely used within the cabins of ships. These aluminum alloys are often joined via steel bolts. There is thus a concern that galvanic interactions will exacerbate corrosion of the aluminum alloys. In this study, a model of the galvanic corrosion between aluminum alloy AA5083 and steel under atmospheric conditions was built. The Nernst-Plank equation and the ...

In order to design an RF MEMS based device, it is beneficial to have information concerning mechanical behavior. For model verification purpose, solution offered by simulation software equipped with predefined physics application is one valuable way to provide initial reference. To avoid unwanted particular total strain in RF MEMS structures, a compensation layer can be utilized. When the number ...

The paper presents the analysis and optimization of the ventilation system inside of a drying lumber kiln. As with any part of the manufacturing process, improper drying techniques cause quality degradation and considerable amount of energy loose. The improvement and optimization of air distribution systems in drying kilns contributes to the preservation of the wood quality. The performance of ...

FMR spectra of the periodic microstructures (one-dimensional magnonic crystals, 1D MCs) were obtained using COMSOL with use partial differential equation interface. Results of these calculations were successfully compared with an experimental data for Damon-Eshbach (DE) and Backward-Volume (BV) geometries. The presented tool allows to analyze periodic structures with various geometries and ...

Two finite element models have been developed to investigate the acoustic radiation from a Pratt truss train bridge. The first model was a time dependent structural model that determined the vibration response of the structure due to two wheels, representing a single axle, moving across the bridge at constant speed. This model was expanded to include multiple axles to represent a locomotive. The ...

In this section, we simulate the heat exchanger system in one dimension characterized by two coaxial tubes with ribbed inner tube using the equations of conservation of mass, conservation of momentum and energy. The COMSOL PDE interface is used to simulate the monophasic and biphasic flow of refrigerant R22 (Chlorodifluoromethane). Heat transfer in waterand inner wall of the exchanger are ...
