The paper presents a method of extraction of electrical equivalent circuit of a one port surface acoustic wave (SAW) resonator from the results of simulation based on finite element method (FEM) using COMSOL Multiphysics software. A one port SAW resonator consists of large number of periodic interdigital transducer (IDT) electrodes fabricated on the surface of a piezoelectric substrate. A ...

Solar drying is a ubiquitous method that has been adopted for many years as a food preservation method. Most of the published articles in the literature provide insight on the performance of solar dryers in service but little information on the dryer construction material selection process or material attributes that allow them to be selected as candidates in solar dryer designs. 1–7 ...

Abstract: Due to the restriction of the number of probes that a patient can tolerate, and the inaccurate information provided by the invasive temperature measurements, which provide information only at discrete points, a mathematical model simulation is more effective to help doctors in planning their thermal treatment doses. This will maximize therapeutic effects while minimizing side effects. ...

The accurate atomic potential determination is an essential task in the molecular simulations, e.g. Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC). The ab initio simulations using the quantum mechanics would of great interest in the computational physical chemistry. The numerical simulation of the adsorption phenomenon requires knowing the interactions parameters between the atoms that make up the systems ...

Ammonia separation from water by membrane contactor was simulated on transient state and compared with experimental data. Aqueous low concentrated solution of ammonium with high pH has been pumped inside the hydrophobic hollow fibers, acid solution in the outside part. The system is in closed loop configuration. In order to simulate the separation process, equations were developed considering ...

This work presents the application of mathematical methods of model order reduction (MOR) for automatic generation of highly accurate, compact models for wireless power transfer systems. We apply a block two-sided second order Arnoldi algorithm to automatically compute a compact model, which is highly accurate, but only demands several orders of magnitude smaller CPU time and can be used for the ...

Conventional swing is one phenomenon which a bowler uses to gain an advantage over the batsman. This study involved simulating conventional swing in the CFD Module of COMSOL Multiphysics® software and comparing the simulated results with experimental results of previous researchers. The variation in the side and drag forces on the ball were investigated by varying the velocity, seam angle and ...

Chemicals are an integrated part of our daily life. While chemicals are significant contributor to a nation’s economy, sound management of chemical production is essential for environmentally friendly operation without maximizing operational costs. Next generation technologies must be developed that potentially change the chemical plants and process engineering giving rise to safe, compact, ...

Energy harvesting from environmental vibration nowadays is feasible because of natural oscillations like that caused by air or liquid flow and by exhalation or the heartbeat of a human body. This vibration frequency is typically low (in order of less than 1 kHz). Accordingly, low-frequency vibration based energy harvesting systems are an important research topic; these systems can be used for ...

Crack detection is and has been an active field of exploration, both theoretical and applied for a number of years. It is the belief of this author that the concepts presented herein explore a new methodology for the modeling and the detection of cracks and families of cracks in crystalline solids, polycrystalline solids and high viscosity amorphous materials (glasses). In the case of the ...
