The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.
Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.
The following model examines unsteady, incompressible flow past a long cylinder placed in a channel at right angle to the oncoming fluid. The cylinder is offset somewhat from the center of the flow to make the steady-state symmetrical flow unstable. The simulation time necessary for a ... Read More
In this set of eight tutorial models and associated documentation, you can investigate the resistive, capacitive, inductive, and thermal properties of a standard three-core lead-sheathed XLPE HVAC submarine cable with twisted magnetic armor (500 mm2, 220 kV). The series includes a 2D, 2D ... Read More
Frequency selective surfaces (FSS) are periodic structures with a bandpass or a bandstop frequency response. This model shows that only signals around the center frequency can pass through the periodic complementary split ring resonator layer. Read More
In this model, the acoustics of the Small Hall in the Konzerthaus Berlin is simulated with ray tracing. A full study of the room is performed in 1/3-octave bands with 10 pairs of source-receiver positions. The room acoustic parameters are derived from the calculated impulse responses, ... Read More
A silicon wafer is heated up by a laser that moves radially in and out over time. In addition, the wafer itself is rotated on its stage. The incident heat flux from the laser is modeled as a spatially distributed heat source on the surface. The transient thermal response of the wafer is ... Read More
This example investigates the electrical performance of a cascaded cavity filter operating in the millimeter-wave 5G band with temperature changes. The thermal variations result in structural deformations of the structure. Thus, the resonant frequencies of the filter elements (cavities) ... Read More
The bracket models are used as an introduction to structural mechanics modeling with the Structural Mechanics Module. The following features are introduced: The fundamentals: static linear analysis Parametric study Including initial strain Modeling thermal expansion Adding a rigid ... Read More
This model is intended as a first introduction to simulations of fluid flow and conjugate heat transfer. It shows you how to: Draw an air box around a device in order to model convective cooling in this box, set a total heat flux on a boundary using automatic area computation, and ... Read More
This tutorial demonstrates how to set up a simple static structural analysis. The analysis is exemplified on a combination wrench during the application of torque on a bolt. Despite its simplicity, and the fact that very few engineers would run a structural analysis before trying to turn ... Read More
This non-conventional model of porous media flow utilizes creeping (Stokes) flow in the interstices of a porous media. The model comes from the pore-scale flow experiments conducted by Arturo Keller, Maria Auset, and Sanya Sirivithayapakorn of the University of California, Santa Barbara. ... Read More
