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.
This tutorial model shows a system consisting of a Helmholtz resonator on the side of a main duct. The resonator volume is partly filled with a porous material. The model computes the reflection, transmission, and absorption of the system. Thermoviscous losses are included in the model ... Read More
In this tutorial the geometry of an occluded ear-canal simulator is optimized to match the acoustic response of a given ear. The target data in this model stems from a simulation of an ear canal, but it can also be based on measurements, or a response specified by a standard. Read More
Diesel particulate filters (DPFs) are designed to remove and filter soot (diesel particles) from the exhaust of diesel engine vehicles. The filters in such systems are typically structured with long, air-filled channels surrounded by a porous medium that retains the soot. Although the ... Read More
Whenever dimensions in waveguides become small compared to the viscous and thermal boundary layers it is necessary to model acoustics using thermoacoustics. In the present model the thermoacoustic wave field in a shallow uniform waveguide is modeled and compared to an analytical solution. Read More
A demultiplexer is a device that directs different frequency bands to different outputs. In this tutorial model, we will design a demultiplexer by performing shape optimization on all initial circular boundaries in a sonic crystal (phononic crystal) configuration. The model uses shape ... Read More
This is a conceptual model of a microphone placed in an infinite baffle (flush mounted). The purpose is to determine the free-field level correction curve of the setup, which includes the exterior domain, microphone grid, and volume between the grid and the diaphragm. The microphone ... Read More
Finding acoustic eigenmodes in problems solved with linearized convected acoustic interfaces can be a challenging task. The solution will most often return several non-acoustic vorticity and entropy modes. These are highly damped waves that do not propagate at the speed of sound but with ... Read More
When high-fidelity measurement microphones are calibrated, a pressure reciprocity calibration method is used. During calibration, two microphones are connected at each end of a closed cylindrical cavity. For the calibration procedure, it is important to understand the acoustic field ... Read More
