The reduction of energy consumption in the building sector (nearly 40% of the energy consumption in Europe) is a real challenge to achieve the objective of the “2020 European climate and energy package”. In recent years, great interest is observed for the Stirling thermoacoustic machines. Nonlinearities due to the high level of acoustic pressure generate DC flows that are superimposed on the ...

Radio frequency (RF) heating have potential as alternatives to chemical fumigation for disinfesting legumes. This study was conducted to investigate the feasibility of RF selective heating of insect larvae in 3 kg soybeans packed in a rectangular plastic container using a 6 kW, 27.12 MHz RF heating system. A finite element based computer simulation program-COMSOL Multiphysics® was used to solve ...

Time-lapse electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) method provides a non-invasive way to monitor subtle sub-surface changes caused by water flow such as in an infiltration test. Problems arise when the inversion models contain artifacts due to measurement errors, rapid change in soil electrical property during measurement time, etc. A new approach was developed by Kim et al. (2004) and (2009) ...

Electric field distribution along an insulator surface is of prime importance for the long term performance of insulators. In this paper electric field and potential distribution along a standard 33 kV polymeric insulator were investigated under different pollution conditions. Effect of voltage type and polarity on the electric field and potential distribution under contaminated conditions were ...

引言：随着水平井和大斜度井的增多，随钻测井（LWD）技术越来越重要。随钻电磁波电阻率测井在随钻测井中应用最为广泛。在国外，随钻电磁波电阻率测井方法已经成为一种成熟的测井技术，但我国仍处于研究发展阶段。20世纪90年代，大庆成功地研制出2MHz电磁波电阻率测井仪器。本世纪，中油测井成功引进并研制出了随钻电磁波电阻率测井仪WPR。仪器仿真对国内引进该仪器进行生产以及实际测井资料处理解释具有指导意义。本文借助COMSOL Multiphysics®仿真平台，建立了二维轴对称模型。模型分为三层和多层，选择AC/DC模块中的磁场。通过LiveLink for MATLAB®实现脚本加载模型并控制数据按一定格式输出为文本文件。考查了APS公司的随钻电磁波电阻率仪器WPR仪器的探测特性，对比了仿真结果与APS公司商业宣传介绍的仪器特性。同时对比了COMSOL与同类有限元仿真软件的误差 ...

As interest in the electromagnetic spectrum expands towards the infrared and terahertz range, the distinct advantages of using semiconductors instead of metals for plasmonic applications must be understood. Plasmonic resonances in gold (Au) and indium nitride (InN) gratings are studied, in the terahertz (?=30µm) regime. The electromagnetic properties of Au and InN are described by the Drude ...

Electrostatically excited plasma waves can induce a “plasma wind” in the surrounding media or air. The lifted object has a shape of a flying saucer, just for better illustration. A travelling plasma wave propulsion requires a pre-ionized media around the surface and a travelling electrostatic field. A simplified plasma model was used to set up an EFD (electro fluid dynamic) approach into a ...
电力传送中经常遇到导线周围金属体连续分布的电荷的电场电势分布问题，其中线电荷的电场分布非常典型, 对于实际情况，当导体靠近导线，因物体形状的不同，其表面产生不同的电荷分布。 解决方案 1 实际情况是三维问题，而三维几何体表面电场分布很难推出解析解，分解成二维模型并验证其表面电荷分布，再通过 COMSOL Multiphysics® 建立三维模型进行仿真计算。 2 对于一般的有限元编程繁琐，计算量大，不可视化，在 COMSOL 中可以不用人工编程，通过绘图功能，可以绘出几何体表面电场线图，与解析解进行对比。 模型设计 1 二维模型中无限长导线用细长线代替，无限远处接地用另一个细长线代替，金属圆盘用面域代替，根据不同区域设置网格尺寸，验证其他形状物体二维表面电荷分布； 2 三维模型中无限长导线用细长体域代替，无限远处接地用一定距离面域代替，用球型代替物体 ...

Inductively Coupled Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition (ICPCVD) has been widely used for carbon-based nanomaterial synthesis because it provides high plasma densities and uniform plasma distribution and allows plasma to be generated in room temperature. During the ICPCVD process, the plasma sheath and built-in electric field effectively impact the nanomaterial growth. Since plasma is a highly ...

Charged particle accelerators require large dipole fields with stringent homogeneity requirements needed to bend particle beams without defocussing. Commonly superconducting saddle coil magnets are used with an iron core to enhance the bore field. The iron uneven magnetization brings undesired multipole fields that need to be compensated for by pre-conditioning the beam with additional magnets. ...
