Introduction Self-heating behaviour of dust accumulations is a multiphysics field coupled heat and mass transfer in the porous media. A typical experimental apparatus with a hot storage oven and mesh wire baskets has been taken as the study object. The influence of gas flow velocity, oxygen concentration and ambient temperature on the self-heating behaviour of the dry coal dust sample has been ...

No processo Kraft a madeira é reduzida a uma massa fibrosa. Neste processo são rompidas as ligações entre as estruturas da madeira separando as fibras. Esta operação, denominada de polpação, é realizada em um equipamento denominado de digestor. Este trabalho analisa o comportamento fluidodinâmico interno a um digestor contínuo do tipo Kamyr.

Rotating Magnetic Field Eddy current technique is a promising technique for inspection of flaws in metallic tubular components. Three primary coils, 120 degrees apart in space, are excited with three phase current source, by virtue, a rotating magnetic field polarised in radial direction is generated. This radial field interacts with metallic tube and generates ...

In order to achieve an optimized design of the Multi-Lumen Thoracic Catheter (MLTC), fluid dynamics analyses were conducted utilizing COMSOL Multiphysics® software with LiveLink™ for Solidworks®. Lumen placement, diameters, and termination points were adjusted to ensure maximum drainage efficacy. It was determined through this study that even with the additional flow through the access lumen, ...

The UK Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor fleet, operated by EDF Energy, utilize a graphite core consisting of a lattice of around 3000 annular bricks. Due to irradiation, oxidation and thermal effects, the bricks deform and loose mass as they age. Of key concern is the late-life behavior of the bricks, in particular the predicted time at which brick shrinkage reverses into expansion, generating large ...

Electric, magnetic and electromagnetic (em) methods are widely used to monitor active volcanoes. A review of such applications is presented in Johnston (cit). Em signals were recorded in correspondence of numerous volcanic eruptions, for example in the case of the Mt. Unzen in Giapppone, of Merapi in Indonesia, Etna in Italy and during rapid deformation in Long Valley in California. ...

Resistive heating filaments used in high temperature applications at 2000°C and above are often made of refractory metals. The lifetime of such filaments is mainly limited by creep deformations which can in the worst case lead to a short circuit between filaments and other furnace components. With the aid of COMSOL Multiphysics software, the time-dependent creep deformation behavior of a heater ...
所谓近场声学，是相对于远场声学而言。传统的声学理论，通常只研究远离光源或者远离物体的声场分布，一般统称为远场声学。远场声学在原理上存在着一个远场衍射极限，限制了利用远场光学原理进行显微和其它光学应用时的最小分辨尺寸和最小标记尺寸。而近场声学则研究距离光源或物体一个波长范围内的光场分布。在近场声学研究领域，远场衍射极限被打破，分辨率极限在原理上不再受到任何限制，可以无限地小，从而基于近场声学原理可以提高显微成像与其它光学应用时的光学分辨率。 声学超材料自问世之日起就受到了国内外科学家们的广泛追捧，在很多领域都可以看到其踪迹，以声子晶体为代表的声超材料具有很多天然材料所不具备的声学特性，为声学信号处理带来了很多创新的思路和途径。 声超材料的突出特点在于采用尺寸远小于入射波长的人工结构构建出等效参数，利用等效参数实现“小尺寸结构调控大尺寸波长”的目的。 ...

Insulator strings are widely used in high voltage transmission lines to mechanically support the line and electrical insulator fixed between line and the tower. Corona discharges may cause a complete failure of an insulator string due to the high intensity of electric field. Applying a corona ring on insulator string is an important approach to decrease the effect of corona. This work analyzed ...
