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.

OW Microspeaker: Simulation and Correlation with Measurements

This model analyzes the electromagnetic, mechanical, and acoustical characteristics of the OWS-1943T-8CP (discontinued) speaker. Beside certain details, the geometry, material properties, and measurements are copyright by Ole Wolff. Starting from the geometry of the speaker, an ... Read More

Immersion Ultrasonic Testing Setup

This tutorial showcases the principles of the immersion ultrasonic testing technique. A search unit placed in a water tank sends an ultrasonic pulse signal that scatters off a solid object. Part of the signal is reflected back to the search unit by the object and possible flaws in it. By ... Read More

Underwater Ray Tracing Tutorial in a 2D Axisymmetric Geometry

When computing ray intensity in 2D axisymmetric models, the wavefront associated with the propagating ray is treated as a spherical or ellipsoidal wave, instead of a cylindrical wave. This tutorial example illustrates how to set up several important features using the *Ray Acoustics* ... Read More

Muffler with Perforates

Reflective mufflers are best suited for the low-frequency range where only plane waves can propagate in the system, while dissipative mufflers with fibers are efficient in the mid- to high-frequency range. Dissipative mufflers based on flow losses, on the other hand, also work at low ... Read More

Acoustic Liner with a Grazing Background Flow

This model demonstrates how to compute the acoustic properties of an acoustic liner with a grazing flow. The liner consists of eight resonators with thin slits. The background grazing flow is at Mach number 0.3. The sound pressure level above the liner is computed and can be compared to ... Read More

Baffled Membrane

Learn how to use the Acoustic-Shell Interaction interface in this tutorial example of a thin vibrating membrane set in an infinite baffle. This example demonstrates how to model the acoustic interaction between a vibrating membrane and the surrounding air. In order to focus on the ... Read More

Coriolis Flowmeter: FSI Simulation in the Frequency Domain

A Coriolis flowmeter, also known as a mass flowmeter or an inertial flowmeter, is used to measure the mass flow rate of a fluid traveling through it. It makes use of the fact that the fluid's inertia through an oscillating tube causes the tube to twist in proportion to the mass flow ... Read More

Acoustic Muffler with Thermoviscous Acoustic Impedance Lumping

This model utilizes the thermoviscous acoustic interface in a sub-model to obtain detailed results for the transfer impedance of a perforated plate (including the thermal and viscous losses). The impedance is in turn used as an internal impedance in a pressure acoustic model of a ... Read More

Sound Transmission Loss Through a Concrete Wall

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

Gaussian Pulse in 2D Uniform Flow: Convected Wave Equation and Absorbing Layers

This tutorial simulates a standard test and benchmark model for nonreflecting conditions and sponge layers for linearized Euler-like systems. It involves the propagation of a transient Gaussian pulse in a 2D uniform flow. The *Convected Wave Equation, Time Explicit* interface solves the ... Read More
