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.

Helical Static Mixer

Helical static mixers are often used to mix monomers and initiators that then react during a polymerization process. The purpose of the Helical Static Mixer application is to demonstrate this mixing process as well as the use of parts and parameterized geometries when building apps. The ... Read More

Shock Tube

The compressible Euler equations are implemented in the Wave Form PDE interface with nodal discontinuous Lagrange shape functions to compute the flow in a shock tube. The purpose of this application is to simulate the flow in the tube and estimate the distributions of pressure, density, ... Read More

Modifying Imported CAD Geometry with the Deformed Geometry Interface

When you are working with foreign CAD or ECAD data, such as files in the STEP, GDS, or IGES file formats, or any of the other supported formats, you may think that you need to re-import a new CAD file and start your modeling over from scratch if you want to study a change in size or ... Read More

Carburizing of gears

The model illustrates how to simulate carburizing, a heat treatment process producing a wear resistant surface. The model solves heat transfer in solids, carbon diffusion and phase transformation of austenite into martensite and pearlite. Read More

Modeling the Behavior of a Thermostat

This example exemplifies how to model applications using the *Events* Interface where a thermostat is sumlated. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Implementing a Thermostat with the Events Interface]( ... Read More

Job Sequences to Save Data After Solving a Model

These examples demonstrate how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations, including solving; saving the model to file; and generating and exporting plot groups, results, and images. In the blog post associated with these files, "[How to Use Job Sequences to ... Read More

Modeling Phase Change with Hysteresis

This example exemplifies how to model thermal phase change that is subject to hysteresis. A more detailed description of the phenomenon, and the modeling process, can be seen in the blog post "[Thermal Modeling of Phase-Change Materials with Hysteresis]( ... Read More

How to Export Images Automatically After Solving

This example demonstrates how to use a parameterized slice plot and animation functionality to export a sequence of images. In addition, the example shows how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations where the model is first solved and then the image ... Read More

Thermostat with a Reactionary Delay

This example shows how to model the behavior of a thermostat where a delay in its reaction has been implemented. A more detailed description of the phenomenon, and the modeling process, can be seen in the blog post "[How to Implement a Delay in Your Thermostat Simulation]( ... Read More

Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Application

This example shows how to create a time-limited and hardware-locked application. It is associated with the section "Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Applications" in the _[Application Programming Guide](/documentation/ApplicationProgrammingGuide.pdf)_ (page 196). Read More
