Electromagnetic and Structural Analysis of a Microwave Filter on a PCB

Microstrip filters can be fabricated directly on a printed circuit board (PCB) with a microstrip line going from the input to the output. Along the microstrip line there are a number of stubs of certain lengths and widths. The design of the filter involves choosing the impedance of the microstrip line, the impedance of the stub microstrips, and the length of the stubs. This particular filter has a seventh-pole low ...

Thermal lensing in high-power laser focusing systems

Modern high-power industrial fiber laser systems can deliver up to 3kW of single-mode laser radiation on to surfaces to be cut, drilled, welded or marked. Even using highly transmissive materials, the optical component used to focus the laser beam on to target surfaces can be affected by the large amount of power carried by the light. As the laser beam pass through the optical components, thermal expansion as well ...

Sensitivity Analysis of a Communication Mast Detail

The example Stiffness Analysis of a Communication Mast’s Diagonal Mounting in the COMSOL Multiphysics Model Library shows how you can modify a 3D CAD model to improve its performance. In that case, the applied changes were based solely on the analyst’s experience with similar structures. A senior design engineer can sometimes reach acceptable performance after analyzing only a handful of designs, while an un ...

Voltage Induced in a Coil by Moving Magnet

A magnet moving axially through the center of a coil will induce a voltage across the coil terminals. One practical application of this is in shaker flashlights, where the flashlight is vigorously shaken back and forth, causing a magnet to move through a multi-turn coil, which provides charge to the battery. In this model, the motion of a magnet through a coil is modeled, and the induced voltages are computed. The di ...

Electrochemical Polishing

This example illustrates the principle of electrochemical polishing. The simplified 2D model geometry consists of two electrodes and an intermediate electrolyte domain The positive electrode has a protrusion, representing a surface defect. The purpose of the model is to examine how this protrusion and the surrounding electrode material are depleted over a period of time. ...

Condenser Microphone, Axisymmetric with Electric Lumping

This model is that of a simple axisymmetric condenser microphone. The model includes all the relevant physics and determines the sensitivity of the specific microphone geometry and material parameters. The model uses a lumped approximation for the electric small signal problem but solves a full FE model for the acoustic-mechanical system. The quiescent (zero point) problem is solved fully using electrostatics and a m ...

Stiffness Analysis of a Communication Mast´s Diagonal Mounting

Communication masts usually have a framework with a bolted triangular lattice design. The diagonals of the framework are assembled from several parts and welded together. When operating under a given wind load at a specific location, the antenna’s total rotation angle should stay below a certain limit to ensure uninterrupted communications. For the type of mast in this model, the engineers have determi ...

Tunable Evanescent Mode Cavity Filter using a Piezoelectric Device

An evanescent mode cavity filter can be realized by adding a structure inside of the cavity. This structure changes the resonant frequency lower than the dominant mode of the unfilled cavity. A piezo actuator is used to control the size of a small air gap which provides the tunability of the resonant frequency. ...

Copper Deposition in a Trench

This model demonstrates the use of moving meshes in the application of copper electrodeposition on circuit boards. In these environments, the presence of cavities or 'trenches' are apparent. The model makes use of the Tertiary, Nernst-Planck interface for electrodeposition to keep track of the deformation of the mesh. Furthermore, electrochemical reaction kinetics through use of the Butler-Volmer equation fo ...

Simulating the Moving Parts of a Generator

In this model, a rotor with permanent magnets and a nonlinear magnetic material rotates within a stator of the same magnetic material. The generated voltage in windings around the stator is calculated as a function of time. COMSOL Multiphysics models the rotation with assemblies and identity pairs. The nonlinearity of the magnetic material is also taken into account using an interpolation function. ...

Peristaltic Pump

In a peristaltic pump, rotating rollers squeeze a flexible tube. As the rollers move along the tube, the fluid in the tube follows the motion. The main advantage of the peristaltic pump is that no seals, valves or other internal parts ever touch the fluid. Due to their cleanliness, peristaltic pumps have found many applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical, biomedical and food industries. This COMSOL M ...

Boiling Water

Boiling flow is an example of phase transition initiated by raising the temperature of a liquid above its saturation temperature. It is possible to accomplish this in many ways; in this example by applying an external heat flux to a solid surface in contact with the liquid. There are three distinct regimes that characterize boiling induced by a heated surface: nucleate, transition, and film. The boiling regime de ...

Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Network of Blood Vessels

This model refers to a portion of the vascular system of a young child - the upper part of the aorta artery. The blood vessels are embedded in a biological tissue (the cardiac muscle) and, during the flow of blood, pressure is applied to the internal surfaces producing deformation of the vessel walls. The complete analysis consists of two distinct but coupled procedures: a fluid-dynamics analysis with t ...

Optimizing the Shape of a Horn

A plane-wave mode feeds an axisymmetric horn radiating from an infinite baffle towards an open half space. The radius of the feeding waveguide is assumed to be fixed, as well as the depth of the horn and the size of the hole where the horn is attached to the baffle. By varying the curvature of the initially conical surface of the horn, its directivity and impedance can be changed. This model shows how to app ...
