Pacemaker Electrode

This model illustrates the use of COMSOL Multiphysics for modeling of ionic current distribution problems in electrolytes, in this case in human tissue. The problem is exemplified on a pacemaker electrode, but it can be applied in electrochemical cells like fuel cells, batteries, corrosion protection, or any other process where ionic conduction takes place in the absence of concentration ...

Virtual Operation on a Wheel Rim Geometry

This tutorial shows how to perform virtual geometry operations on an imported CAD geometry. These virtual operations, such as form composite entities or ignore entities can help to improve the mesh and reduce the total element number.

Micromixer

The development of mixers does often not only have to account for effectiveness, but also other factors must be involved, such as cost and complexity for manufacturing. The three models study a laminar static micro mixer with two parallel sets of split-reshape-recombine mixing elements. The mixer works through lamination of the streams without any moving parts and the mixing is obtained through ...

The KdV Equation and Solitons

The Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation models water waves. It contrasts sharply to the Burgers equation, because it introduces no dissipation and the waves travel seemingly forever. Solitons have their primary practical application in optical fibers. Specifically, a fiber’s linear dispersion properties level out a wave while the nonlinear properties give a focusing effect. The result is a very ...

Micromixer - Cluster Version

This example studies a laminar static micromixer with two parallel sets of split-reshape-recombine mixing elements. The mixer works through lamination of the streams without any moving parts and the mixing is obtained through diffusion. The purpose of this model is to demonstrate how to access the cluster computing functionality in COMSOL from COMSOL Desktop and use it to submit a batch job to ...

The Shallow Water Equations

The Shallow Water equations are frequently used for modeling both oceanographic and atmospheric fluid flow. Models of such systems lead to the prediction of areas eventually affected by pollution, coast erosion and polar ice-cap melting. Comprehensive modeling of such phenomena using physical descriptions such as the Navier-Stokes equations can often be problematic, due to the scale of the ...

Shell Diffusion in a Tank

A goal for many applications is to predict physics in thin structures, such as shells, without modeling the thickness of the structure. This is because large aspect ratios can cause meshing and geometry analysis problems. This model demonstrates how to use the tangential derivative variables in COMSOL Multiphysics to solve partial differential equations in curved 3D shells and 2D boundaries ...

Spherically Symmetric Transport

This model approximates 3D spherical transport using a 1D model. Many models of industrial-transport problems allow the assumption that the problem is spherically symmetric. This assumption is of great importance because it eliminates two space coordinates to result in a 1D problem that can be computed fast with small memory requirements. The model of the transient heating of a magnetite ore ...

Sensitivity Analysis of a Communication Mast Detail

The example Stiffness Analysis of a Communication Mast’s Diagonal Mounting in the COMSOL Multiphysics Model Library shows how you can modify a 3D CAD model to improve its performance. In that case, the applied changes were based solely on the analyst’s experience with similar structures. A senior design engineer can sometimes reach acceptable performance after analyzing only a handful of ...

Implementing a Point Source

This model solves the Poisson equation on a unit disk with a point source in the origin. The easiest way to describe a point source in COMSOL Multiphysics is by using an extra weak term. To obtain the weak formulation of the general Poisson equation, we multiply it with a test function u_test and integrate over the domain. The mesh density is dense, close to the origin, so as to resolve the ...
