Modeling scattered electromagnetic waves


  by Leonidas Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna, Austria) In many applications, like material parameter investigation and nondestructive testing, arises the inverse problem of reconstructing the position, the shape and / or the properties of a cavity or an inclusion from given measurements. A good knowledge of the direct problem is necessary […]

Optical modelling of the human retina


The human retina is a complex structure in the eye that is responsible for the sense of vision. It is part of the central nervous system, composed by several layers, among which the outer nuclear layer that comprises the cells bodies of light sensitive photoreceptor cells (rods and cones). There are a number of eye-related […]

Modelling, Simulation and Optimization of Multifrequency Induction Hardening

Induction hardening of a gear

Induction hardening is a modern method for the heat treatment of workpieces made of steel. A well directed heating by electromagnetic waves and subsequent quenching of the workpiece increases the hardness of the surface layer. With the multi-frequency concept, medium and high frequency power are supplied simultaneous on a single induction coil, which can result in […]
