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 gearbox is used to transfer power from an engine to its associated wheels or cogs, which can result in radiating noise to the surroundings. This is due to the transmission of undesired lateral and axial forces on the bearings and housing, while transmitting power from one shaft to the ... Read More
This is a model of acoustic absorption by a porous acoustic open cell foam. In porous materials the sound propagates in a network of small interconnected pores. Because the dimensions of the pores are small, losses occur due to thermal conduction and viscous friction. Acoustic foams are ... Read More
Headphones are closely coupled to the ear, and so it is not possible to measure their sensitivity in a classical acoustic free-field setup used for loudspeakers. The measurement requires the use of artificial heads and ears to accurately represent the usage conditions. This model shows ... Read More
Knowing the velocity of a moving fluid is important in all cases where the fluid is used to transport material or energy. In the time-of-flight or transit-time method for determining flow velocity, an ultrasonic signal is transmitted across the main flow in a pipe to noninvasively ... Read More
Angle beam ultrasonic units are used for nondestructive testing of solid objects, such as metal pipes. They are especially useful for detecting the flaws in and around welding areas. The operating principle lies in the generation of a refracted shear wave in the test sample that is ... Read More
This model presents a practical and efficient method to compute the sound transmission loss (STL) through a building component, specifically this example treats the case of a concrete wall. The method used here is valid as long as the component has little influence on the acoustic field ... Read More
Helmholtz resonators are used in exhaust systems, as they can attenuate a specific narrow frequency band. The presence of a flow in the system alters the acoustic properties of the resonator and the transmission loss of the subsystem. In this tutorial model, a Helmholtz resonator is ... Read More
This model presents a practical and efficient method to compute the sound transmission loss (STL) through a building component. Specifically, this example treats the case of a double-glazed window. The method used here is valid for structural components that have a small influence on ... Read More
This example shows how to model a loudspeaker driver of the dynamic cone type, common for low and medium frequencies. The analysis is carried out in the frequency domain and thus represents the linear behavior of the driver. The model analysis includes the total electric impedance and ... Read More
In many applications, acoustic waves interact with surfaces that have small perforations or slits. This can be in muffler systems; in soundproofing structures; in liners for noise suppression in jet engines; or in grilles and meshes in front of, for example, miniature speakers in mobile ...
