Heat Pipe Design and Modeling: Theory, Finite Element Analysis, and Applications

Today’s finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software packages allow designers to identify thermal challenges early in the design process, but models are only as accurate as their boundary conditions.

Innovative Antimicrobial Resistant Polymers for Medical Devices

Secondary infections found in hospital environments are becoming an increasingly significant concern for patients, hospital administrators, and staff. Patient care can be negatively affected when a secondary infection caused by a variety of microorganisms commonly found in healthcare environments leads to health issues for a patient. With insurance companies no longer covering the expense for secondary infections, the cost to hospitals for the infections can lead to a negative return on their bottom line.

Heat Transfer Simulation in Materials Processing

Engineers in the aerospace, defense, heavy manufacturing, automotive, and medical product industries develop processes to produce materials with specific mechanical and physical properties. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the analysis of conjugate heat transfer problems in COMSOL Multiphysics that are relevant to material processing, and investigate the effects of fluid flow on the quenching of hot components. The analyses show the effects of conduction, convection and radiation for sufficiently high processing temperatures. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

Novel Wiring Technologies for High-Performance Applications

Because wire failure in aerospace vehicles could be catastrophic, smart wiring capabilities have been critical for NASA. Through the years, researchers at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) have developed technologies, expertise, and research facilities to meet this need.

Design of Graded Index Fiber Lenses for OCT Applications

            A fiber-optic probe, for optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications, typically includes a short section of graded index (GRIN) fiber fused onto a single-mode (SM) fiber. The GRIN fiber acts as a lens to focus the output of the SM fiber and to collect the reflected light from the sample. In this paper we use a beam propagation method (BPM) to analyze the output beam characteristics such as beam radius and working distance, and then compare these with measured results. With this tool we can design a GRIN fiber lens to achieve a long working distance without degrading the system performance.
