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.
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 ... Read More
Magnetostrictive transduction is used in sonars, acoustic devices, active vibration, and position control and fuel injection systems. The transducer has a steel housing enclosing a drive coil. A magnetostrictive material is placed in the core, which works as an actuator when a magnetic ... Read More
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 ... Read More
Inductors are used in many applications for low pass filtering or for impedance matching of predominantly capacitive loads. They are used in a wide frequency range from near static up to several MHz. An inductor usually has a magnetic core to increase the inductance, while keeping its ... Read More
This application illustrates how to model an electric machine, such as a generator, motor, or drive, by exploiting its sector symmetry to reduce the size of the problem. The machine being studied is a simplified electric generator in 3D, based on the geometry used in the generator_2d ... Read More
Induced eddy currents and associated thermal loads is of interest in many high power AC applications. This example is of general nature and illustrates some of the involved physics as well as suitable modeling techniques in the AC/DC Module. In this model a metallic plate is placed ... Read More
Piezoelectric devices are widely used as sources to generate sound waves or receivers to detect acoustic signals. In applications such as ultrasound imaging and nondestructive testing, the same transducer can be used as a transmitter to send a source signal and receiver to detect ... Read More
This model presents a solution to the Transient Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (TEAM) workshop problem 28, “An Electrodynamic Levitation Device”- a benchmark problem involving the dynamic coupling of electromagnetics and rigid body dynamics. An electrodynamic levitation force is ... Read More
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. Read More
