Model Gallery

The Model Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics model files from a wide variety of application areas including the electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical disciplines. You can download ready-to-use models and step-by-step instructions for building the model, and use these as a starting point for your own modeling work. Use the Quick Search to find models relevant to your area of expertise, and login or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license to download the model files.

Frequency Domain Modeling of a Capacitor - new

A capacitor with an applied sinusoidally time-varying voltage difference is modeled. A wide frequency range is considered and the impedance of the device is computed. Solver accuracy is addressed. The relationship between the frequency domain impedance and the steady-state capacitance and resistance of the device is discussed.

Electromagnetic Forces on Parallel Current-Carrying Wires - new

This model shows a setup of two parallel wires with a constant current running through both. Their cross-sections are successively reduced until a set force per unit length is reached.

Multi-turn Coil over an Asymmetric Conductor Plate - new

This model solves the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) problem 7, “Asymmetrical Conductor with a Hole”—a benchmark problem concerning the calculation of eddy currents and magnetic fields produced when an aluminum conductor is placed asymmetrically above a multi-turn coil carrying a sinusoidally varying current. The simulation results at specified positions in space are ...

Superconducting Wire - new

Superconducting materials have zero resistivity up to a certain critical current density, above which the resistivity increases rapidly. To model such a material, this model uses a PDE, General Form interface with second-order vector elements. The model was based on a suggestion by Dr. Roberto Brambilla, CESI - Superconductivity Dept., Milano, Italy.

One-Sided Magnet and Plate - new

Permanent magnets with a one-sided flux have many uses. The one-sided flux behavior is obtained by giving the magnet a magnetization that varies in the lateral direction. This model shows this technique to model a cylindrical one-sided permanent magnet. A special technique to model thin sheets of high permeability material was used to model a thin metal plate next to the magnet. This circumvents ...

Magnetic Signature of a Submarine - new

A vessel traveling on the surface or under water gives rise to detectable local disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field. These disturbances can be used to trigger weapon systems. The magnetic signature of a ship can be reduced by generating a counteracting magnetic field of suitable strength and direction based on prior knowledge of the magnetic properties of the vessel. This model ...

Electric Impedance Sensor - new

Electric impedance measurements are used for imaging and detection. Applications range from nondestructive testing and geophysical imaging to medical imaging. Several alternative techniques are shown to model such a system. One of them shows how to use conditional expressions to define spatially dependent material properties. Another shows how to use multiple terminals for distributed sensing ...

Benchmark Electromagnetic Simulation of a Coil Using Infinite Elements

Many environments where electromagnetic phenomena are modeled are unbounded or open, meaning that the fields should extend towards infinity. The easiest approach to model such is to use infinite elements. COMSOL Multiphysics' implementation of these maps the model coordinates from the local, finite-sized domain to a stretched domain. The inner boundary of this stretched domain coincides with ...

Magnetic Lens - new

A scanning electron microscope samples images by scanning a target with a high-energy beam of electrons. The subsequent electron interactions produce signals such as secondary and back-scattered electrons that contain information about the sample surface topography. Electromagnetic lenses are used to focus this electron beam down to a spot about 10 nm wide on the sample surface. This model ...

Inductance and Resistance

This is a model of a simple AC coil: a single-turn thick circular copper wire. A parametric study of current distribution, coil inductance and coil resistance is performed for different frequencies. The skin effect becomes increasingly important at the higher frequencies.
