Cycle Counting in Fatigue Analysis - Benchmark

A benchmark model of the Rainflow counting algorithm compares results between ASTM and COMSOL fatigue module using a flat tensile test specimen. An extension is made for the cumulative damage calculation following the Palmgren-Miner model and results are compared with analytical expressions.

Electrodeposition of a Microconnector Bump with Deforming Geometry in 3D

This model simulates the shape evolution of a microconnector bump over time as copper deposits on an electrode surface. Transport of cupric ions in the electrolyte occurs by convection and diffusion. The electrode kinetics are described by a concentration dependent Butler-Volmer expression. The model is an extension to 3D of the Electrodeposition of a Microconnector Bump in 2D example.

Parameterized Concrete Beam

Reinforced concrete beams are commonly used in modern construction due to their strength and durability. By simulating such beams, engineers can ensure that the resulting structures both perform well and are safe. With simulation apps, engineers of all levels of expertise can analyze and test different designs with ease. The Parameterized Concrete Beam demo app focuses on the structural ...

Frame Fatigue Life

Analyzing fatigue with simulation, rather than running fatigue experiments, is a much quicker way to determine whether a certain design will fail after repeated loading and unloading. This application allows you to evaluate the fatigue life of a frame with a cutout. It is useful for understanding the concept of fatigue and how to build an equivalent app for your own designs. The Frame Fatigue ...

Truss Bridge Designer

The Truss Bridge Designer app is an example of how to design a simulation tool for a class of civil engineering structures, in this case a Pratt truss bridge. Such a bridge is characterized by the diagonal beams on each side of the bridge, which all slant down and in toward the center of the span. Because of this design, the diagonal beams are subjected only to tension, while the vertical beams, ...

Caughey-Thomas Mobility

With an increase in the parallel component of the applied field, carriers can gain energies above the ambient thermal energy and be able to transfer energy gained by the field to the lattice by optical phonon emission. The latter effect leads to a saturation of the carriers mobility. The Caughey Thomas mobility model adds high field velocity scattering to an existing mobility model (or to a ...

1D Isothermal Lithium-Air Battery

Rechargeable lithium-air batteries have recently attracted great interest mainly due to their high energy density. The theoretical value is about 11400 Wh/kg which is around 10 times greater than the lithium-ion batteries. In this tutorial, discharge of a lithium-air battery is simulated using the *Lithium-ion Battery* interface. The transport of oxygen (from external air) in the porous carbon ...

Molecular Flow Through a Microcapillary

Computing molecular flows in arbitrary geometries produces complex integral equations that are very difficult to compute analytically. Analytic solutions are, therefore, only available for simple geometries. One of the earliest problems solved was that of gas flow through tubes of arbitrary length, which was first treated correctly by Clausing. Later, the integral expressions he derived were ...

Evanescent Mode Cylindrical Cavity Filter

An evanescent-mode cavity filter is resonant at a frequency lower than its original fundamental mode frequency. Evanescent mode resonance can be realized by creating a discontinuity or reactance inside the cavity. The basic model was modified by the addition of a metal box at either end representing a housing. Inside a dielectric substrate and a microstrip line coupled into the cavity. The ...

Crevice Corrosion of Nickel with Electrode Deformation

This model exemplifies the basic principles of crevice corrosion and how a time-dependent study can be used to simulate the electrode deformation. The model is in 2D and the polarization data for the corrosion reaction is taken from a paper by Absulsalam and others. The model and the results are similar to a 1D model by Brackman and others. This model does not account for mass transport ...
