The paper addresses a class of problems for modeling and consequently simulating the electromagnetic field radiation pattern from a two arm Archimedes spiral coil. The performance of particular interest is knowledge of the radiated magnetic field H and electric field E in the neighborhood of the coil. The results in this paper illustrate how COMSOL is used to solve for the radiated ...

Restoration of archaeological materials from oceans is a major activity of Arc’ Antique. Organic materials such as wood, tissues, leathers, papers and ceramics found in sea water are always impregnated with salts. Rinsing such archaeological objects with pure water to extract the salts takes too long, so electrophoresis was used to improve the salt extraction. The objective of this ...

It is commonly recognized that careful thermal design of electronic equipments represents an unavoidable pre-production step in order to ensure reliability and performance of those components during their functioning. This paper mainly concerns a comparison between experimental and numerical results obtained in studying thermal dissipation in natural and mixed convection conditions for RAM ...

Superconductors have the unique capability of trapping magnetic flux. This feature has the potential to enable and improve several applications including high power density rotating machines. Current material used as trapped flux magnets (TFM) is single domain YBCO that present numerous limitations interms of performance, stability and size. One way to overcome the limitations is to use thin ...

Mathematical optimization can be used as a computational engine to generate the best solution for a given problem in a systematic and efficient way. In the context of monolithic converter systems, the parameter estimation problem (or inverse problem) is solved using Partial Differential Equations (PDE)-based models of the physical system coupled with an optimization algorithm. These problems are ...

The alternative engines of Stirling type, are engines running on "hot air", using both an external heat source and regeneration. They should be considered as an alternative for the effective conversion of renewable energy sources into work, with their theoretical yield equal to the theoretical Carnot limit. The output efficiency and the power of these engines are strongly related to the ...

A numerical investigation of the long-term performance of double U-tube borehole heat exchanger (BHE) fields, in the case of non-negligible effects of groundwater movement, is performed by means of COMSOL Multiphysics. Two time periodic heat loads, with a period of one year, are studied: Q1, with a partial compensation between winter heating (principal load) and summer cooling; Q2, with no ...

The most popular means of depression treatment are psychotherapy, antidepressant medication and recently adopted transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the human brain. To overcome their disadvantages we are investigating an application of low-field magnetic stimulation (LFMS) to depression treatment. The 3D electromagnetic model of LFMS has been developed. It employs 8 small coils disposed ...

Electrical contacts consists of parts where the surfaces are in contact and where the actual physical contact occur just in a few contact asperity points scattered over the whole apparent contact area. Through these contact spots between the two mating bodies the mechanical load and the electric current is transmitted. Often a soft coating is used to enlarge the real contact area. Modeling the ...

A proximity DC current sensor using of a piezo sensed and actuated cantilever beam with a permanent magnet mounted at its free end is designed and simulated in COMSOL Multiphysics. The change in resonant frequency of cantilever is a measure of the current through the wire. The sensor is found to be linear with good sensitivity.
