Demo Database for Model Manager

Application ID: 104691

This local demo database for the Model Manager contains an imported copy of the Application Library models in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.0 and above. You can add this database from COMSOL Multiphysics® by selecting Download Demo Database for Model Manager from the File > Help menu. The database is automatically downloaded as a compressed ZIP archive from the COMSOL web site and unzippped to the default local databases directory as set in Preferences > Model Manager > Directory for local databases. In the Windows® operating system, the default location is %LOCALAPPDATA%\COMSOL\ModelManager\Databases.

You can also download the Demo file and unzip it yourself. This is an option, for example, if you do not have internet access on the computer with your COMSOL Multiphysics® installation. Use these steps to unzip the file to the default directory location:

  1. Open the location where Demo was downloaded, right-click on it and choose Extract All…
  2. Click Browse… in the dialog to select a destination for the extracted files.
  3. Type %LOCALAPPDATA% in the Folder field and click Select Folder
  4. The dialog should now list a path to AppData\Local within your user profile under Files will be extracted to this folder
  5. Append \COMSOL\ModelManager\Databases to the end of the path and click Extract.
  6. Wait while the files are extracted.

If you choose another location, it must not be on a network drive and must not be read-only. Then go to Add Database > Open Local Database in the Model Manager workspace in COMSOL Multiphysics® and select the file Demo Database.mphdb inside the unzipped database folder. You can now use the demo database in the Model Manager.
