Looking for some advice regarding cryogenic modeling in ANSYS FEA software

I am looking for some advice regarding cryogenic modeling in ANSYS FEA software. I have been trying to use the Transient Thermal module, in workbench 14.5, to model the cooling of a device in a dilution fridge. I have approximate values for the cooling power of each plate in the fridge, and I have the … Continue reading Looking for some advice regarding cryogenic modeling in ANSYS FEA software

Revolutionary muon experiment to start with 3,200-mile move of cryostat from Brookhaven to Fermilab

Scientists from 26 institutions around the world are planning a new experiment that could open the doors to new realms of particle physics. But first, they have to bring the core of this experiment, a complex electromagnet that spans 50 feet in diameter, from the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York to the DOE's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, a CSA CSM, in Illinois.

Use of cryoablation for treatment of breast cancer shows promising results

IceCure Medical reports that Dr. Eisuke Fukuma has treated 58 breast cancer patients with cryoablation over the last six years under a research protocol at Kameda Medical Center in Japan. As of now, they say, none of the patients have had a tumor reoccur or distant metastases. By choosing this non-surgical treatment, patients avoid the risks and potential cosmetic impact of major breast cancer surgery. The fact that none have had recurrences suggests that, with further study, cryoablation may offer significant, minimally-invasive breast health options, the company says.

Physicists build world’s first ‘magnetic hose’ for transmitting magnetic fields

One of the more important properties of electromagnetic waves is that they can be transmitted over almost unlimited distance. However, the same cannot be said of magnetic fields. "The impact of magnetism in science is limited by an apparently insurmountable restriction: magnetic fields rapidly decay with the distance from the sources," say Carles Navau at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and his fellow physicists.

GE researcher receives 200th US patent

GE Global Research, the technology development arm of the General Electric Co., is honored to announce that Dr. E. Trifon Laskaris, Chief Engineer and pioneer in imaging technologies, has been awarded his 200th U.S. patent—a milestone previously reached by only one other GE research lab employee, Thomas Edison.

Chart Industries wins $45m+ LNG equipment contract

Chart Industries, Inc., an independent global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment used in the production, distribution, storage and end-use of hydrocarbon and industrial gases, has announced that its Distribution & Storage (D&S) business in China has been awarded a new contract to provide liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling stations, self-contained LNG station modules, storage tanks and trailers for LNG service to PetroChina Hua Gang Gas Group Co. Ltd., a joint venture between PetroChina Huabei Oilfield Company and PetroChina's Kunlun Energy Company.

US House passes bill to head off massive helium shortage

On April 26, the US House of Representatives passed a bill by a vote of 394 to 1 that would head off a critical shortage of helium that is sure to strike in October if Congress does nothing. That news should come as a relief to the thousands of scientists and technologists who rely on the stuff as an irreplaceable resource to run MRI machines, manufacture optical fibers and microchips, and cool samples to near absolute zero.
