In this paper, we present a mathematical model for simulating the mass transfer, during the osmotic dehydration of mango cubes. The mass balance equation for the transport of each constituent is established separately for intracellular and extracellular volumes but accounts for the mass exchange across the cell membrane and the shrinkage of whole tissue.

The so-called opposite electrode pair measurement strategy is adapted in a filtration/expression cell filled with a model material packed bed. In this paper, we investigate the electrical properties of a packed bed, with particular emphasis on its overall conductivity. As a special case study we treat potassium chloride solutions, using model materials of different particle sizes.

The most common case of crevice corrosion occurs on passive materials such as stainless steels, in oxidizing-chloride environments. A flexible crevice propagation model has been developed to allow parametric studies of the solution. Our main results allow us to establish diagrams of stability of solid and gas phases within the crevice and to evaluate the influence of the external ...

In this paper, we model the thermal decomposition of an energetic materiel inside a vessel located in the furnace of a thermal gravimetric apparatus. As a case study, we treat the case with ammonium perchlorate single particles.

This paper presents thermo-mechanical and electromagnetic computational results in the time-harmonic and transient domains. This includes the stress analysis induced by the magnetic field and resulting pressure, the Joule heating with skin effects and the corresponding deformation.

The aim of this work is to study tissue morphogenesis as a consequence of the constitutive cells dynamics. Tissue morphogenesis is modelled as a cellular system coupled with a global chemical control. p> Two concrete examples are presented, the secondary growth of conifer trees and the epithelial invagination.
Low Frequency Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Large Cavities, Study of the Cavity of Titan after the Cassini-Huygens Mission

The propagation of low frequency electromagnetic waves in the cavity of celestial bopdies with ionospheres has been studied, namely for inferring thunderstorm and lightning activity. The measurement of resonant states provides useful information for the analysis of the electric environment in the cavity. We present a 3D finite element model of the cavity, compute the lowest eigenfrequencies ...

In this paper, we study a novel type of NEMS - tunnel junctions mounted on thin membranes. Mechanical stress applied to the junction induces changes in the height and length of the barrier, allowing the modulation of the tunnelling current.
