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.

Ammonia Synthesis PFR

This example demonstrate the modeling of a plug flow reactor for the synthesis of ammonia in the Haber-Weiss process. The catalytic reactor in this process operates under non-isothermal conditions, where temperature and pressure varies substantially along the length of the reactor, in addition to the variation in composition.

Monolithic Reactor

This model simulates the catalytic abatement of a volatile organic compound (VOC), in this case a contaminant in a waste gas. An analytical expression describes the velocity profile in the free channel, while reaction occurs in the washcoat that makes up the tubular shape of the free channel. For simple geometries, the reactor can be described by a 2D model using time as the axial direction ...

Space-Dependent HI Reactor

This model deals with a reacting system comprising of an equimolar mixture of hydrogen and iodine gas which is allowed to react and form HI. Composition and temperature are allowed to vary both in space and time. This means that you have to define material balances, energy balances, and transport properties in the Reaction Engineering interface. These balances and properties are exported to ...

Transport and Reaction in a Catalyst in 3D

Consider the study of a mass balance of a diluted species in air, for example, a pollutant in an exhaust stream. The model’s aim is to calculate the concentration profile of this species, which is decomposed by a catalyst present on the surface of a porous supporting structure. In a first step, you solve the velocity field for the solution assuming that the diluted pollutant has no influence ...

Chemical Reactions and Soot Build-up in a Diesel Filter

In this model, a filter system for a diesel engine is modeled, including where a soot layer builds up and is oxidized. The build-up of the layer is held in check by both catalytic and non-catalytic reactions, where carbon is oxidized to carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, which in turn passes through the membrane. A filter system's efficiency and durability is closely related to the manner in ...

Water Purification by Silver Complexation

Many industrial processes leave remainders of toxic dissolved metal ions in process flows. A common method for removing metal ions from water is complexation. This model example shows a purification reactor where silver ions are complexated to diamine-silver for removal. Ammonia (L) is added across a membrane in a tubular reactor in order to remove silver ions (M) from a water stream. A ...

Chlorine Scrubber

This example studies the kinetics of the neutralization of chlorine gas in water solution. The model assumes that the fluid volume is perfectly mixed and constant. This means that the chlorine has dissolved to an almost saturated state (1·10-2 mol/m3) and that the hydroxide has also mixed well throughout, as would be the case for a very small amount of fluid in a scrubber. The study allows ...

Tubular Reactor with Isothermal Cooling

This model uses the Transport of Diluted Species and Heat Transfer in Fluids interfaces to study an elementary, exothermic, irreversible reaction in a tubular reactor (liquid phase, laminar flow regime). To keep its temperature down, the reactor uses a cooling jacket with a constant coolant temperature. The steady-state behavior of the reactor is investigated. This model solves the example by S. ...
