Microfluidics and Simulation Webinar: Meeting Critical Requirements
The development of microfluidic devices for the life sciences industry has a promising future. The industry has seen an increase in R&D spending for novel concepts, which are on the rise. This webcast shows why numerical simulations have become critical for pinpointing key requirements for successful implementation through both prototyping and optimization. From developing medical test strips, analyzing implanted sensors and drug delivery, developing lab-on-a-chip models, to prototyping new concepts or designing PCR bioreactors, presenters show how advanced simulation can accurately and...
La giornata, che comprende un caffè di benvenuto ed un rinfresco offerti da CD-adapco, sarà una stimolante occasione per approfondire le potenziali applicazioni delle soluzioni di simulazione e i benefici che possono portare alla sua realtà. Il seminario è gratuito ed è adatto anche a chi non ha conoscenze specifiche di simulazione 3D, ma ha cuore la produttività tecnica e l'innovatività.
Liquid electrolytes (i.e. acids and bases) can be used to pattern metal and semiconductor surfaces. The removal process is an electrochemical surface reaction that is often dependent on reactant and product concentrations, therefore non-homogenous etch rates are common. STAR-CCM+ can be used to aid understanding and optimization of wet-etch processes by predicting these concentration dependent etch rates. The above images show etch-product concentration and etch profiles along a copper surface at the bottom of a two-dimensional trench.
CD-adapco tools are used by a number of fuel cell companies to understand and optimize both proton exchange membrane (PEM) and solid oxide (SOFC) fuel cells. The image shows a single cell SOFC that incorporates heat transfer, electrochemical reaction, and multi-component gas transport.
Research at MIT has shown that ionic wind can produce 55 times more thrust per kilowatt than traditional jet engines . This type of airflow can be produced by applying a voltage between two electrodes. If one electrode is sharp enough (like a wire or blade), a corona discharge occurs near the electrode surface that ionizes certain gas species (often O 2 + in air). These charged ions migrate from one electrode to the other, resulting in air flow.
Automotive companies utilize electroplating to make plastic parts look like metal. In the above image, Chromium III plating thickness on a plastic automotive grille is predicted using secondary current distributions. Chromium plating is the final layer in a multistep electroplating process consisting of pretreatment, copper, nickel, and finally chrome deposition. Choosing locations to make electric contact with the plastic part is crucial in obtaining evenly distributed films.
