Two-Phase Flow with Fluid-Structure Interaction

The following example demonstrates techniques for modeling a fluid-structure interaction containing two fluid phases in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how a heavier fluid can induce movement in an obstacle using the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) technique along with the Two ... Read More

Heat Sink

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

Unsteady 3D Flow Past a Cylinder

This example simulates 3D unsteady laminar flow past a cylinder in a channel. The inflow velocity profile is time-varying. The lift and drag coefficients are computed, and results show good agreement with those published in the literature. Read More

Inkjet Nozzle — Level Set Method

Although initially invented to be used in printers, inkjets have been adopted for other application areas, such as within the life sciences and microelectronics. Simulations can be useful to improve the understanding of the fluid flow and to predict the optimal design of an inkjet for a ... Read More

Free Surfaces with Level Set, Phase Field, and Moving Mesh: A Comparison

We present the results from a comparison of the level set, phase field, and moving mesh methods for modeling free liquid surfaces in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The comparison is carried out using an example problem. The example studies the formation of surface waves ... Read More

Capillary Filling

This example studies a narrow vertical cylinder placed on top of a reservoir filled with water. Because of wall adhesion and surface tension at the air/water interface, water rises through the channel. Surface tension and wall adhesive forces are often used to transport fluid through ... Read More

Flow Through a Pipe Elbow

This example models the flow in a 90-degree pipe elbow. The flow is simulated using the k-omega turbulence model. The result is compared to engineering correlations. Read More

Droplet Breakup in a T-Junction

Emulsions consist of small liquid droplets immersed in an immiscible liquid and widely occur in the production of food, cosmetics, fine chemicals, and pharmaceutical products. The quality of the product is typically dependent on the size of the droplets. Simulating these processes can ... Read More

Solar Panel in Periodic Flow

This model exemplifies the analysis of strong wind flow around a solar panel and the corresponding structural displacement due to the wind's load. The solar panel is located in an array of equally spaced identical panels, which allows for the assumption that the periodic flow conditions ... Read More

Rising Bubble

The level set method is well suited for problems with moving boundaries in which the geometry’s topology changes with time. A bubble of oil that travels up through water and finally merges with oil at the top causes this kind of topology change. For problems where the topology is ... Read More
