Abstract: Some of recent and unconventional buildings are using reflective material for their walls. In case of curved walls, like in the Vdara Hotel tutorial, or of complex shape walls like in the present case, the risk of solar radiation concentration is difficult to predict. Such concentration may damage the impinged material. Then it has to be studied by simulation. The presented case ...
Research and Development of Multiphysics Models in Support of the Conversion of the High Flux Isotope Reactor to Low Enriched Uranium Fuel
The findings presented in this report are results of a five-year effort led by the Research Reactors Division (RRD) of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), which is focused on research and development toward the conversion of the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) fuel from high-enriched uranium (HEU) to low-enriched uranium (LEU). This report focuses on the tasks accomplished by the ...

Descemet membrane detachment (DMD) happen when the aqueous humour (AH) in the aqueous chamber flow into the descrement membrance (DM) space through a break and separate the membrane from the stroma. This often happen after the cataract surgery. The fluid is driven by the buoyancy force that generated by to the existing of temperature different between the cornea and the pupil. COMSOL ...

Modern gas turbines suffer of the phenomenon of combustion instability, also known as “humming”. The main origin of the instability is considered to be related to the interaction between acoustic waves and fluctuations of the heat released by the flame. This paper presents a novel numerical method in which the governing equations of the acoustic waves are coupled with a flame heat ...

Cerebral vasospasm is a complication of subarachnoid hemorrhage and other neurosurgical emergencies that reduce blood flow to the brain. Part of the approach to management of vasospasm is to improve flow through the stenotic areas by reducing by decreasing blood viscosity and enhancing flow through the stenosis. To examine the interaction of these factors, we applied computational fluid ...

Photodynamic therapy(PDT) is a new cancer treatment modality using the photochemical reaction of a photosensitizing drug, light, and oxygen. The objective of this project is to determine the photochemical parameters necessary for singlet oxygen modeling during PDT using parameters obtained from a microscopic model. FEM calculation in COMSOL Multiphysics was used to determine the model ...

RFSP-IST (Reactor Fueling Simulation Program) is a computer code used for the full-core neutronics design and analysis of CANDU® reactors. RFSP-IST calculates the static flux and power distributions in the core by solving the neutron diffusion equation in two energy groups. For validation purposes, results from RFSP-IST are often compared with those from other codes. This paper documents the ...
