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.

Modeling Irregular Shapes by Using Interpolation and Image Data

This file shows how to create a surface of an irregular shape based on text, image, or elevation data. This approach is best suited for data where the height (or elevation) is a function of _x_- and _y_-coordinates. The data is of the Matterhorn, a European mountain located in the ... 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 Generate Randomized Inhomogeneous Material Data

These examples demonstrate how to generate and visualize randomized material data with specified statistical properties determined by a spectral density distribution by using the tools available under the _Results_ node. In the blog post associated with these files, "[How to Generate ... Read More

Cavity Eigenfrequency Modeling Using the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes Interface

This model demonstrates three different ways to find the eigenfrequencies of a rectangular metallic cavity. The first method uses an eigenfrequency study step together with the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes interface. Here, it is important to define a wave vector for the physics ... Read More

Image to Curve Add-In Examples

These example models demonstrate using the Image to Curve add-in, which is included in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5. One example shows a simple structural analysis. An image of an H-beam is imported to a work plane and then extruded. A distributed load is applied to the beam ... 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

State Variables

These two example models demonstrate how state variables (new in COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.5) can be used to define and use history-dependent variables. Learn more in the accompanying blog post: "[How to Use State Variables in COMSOL Multiphysics®](/blogs/how-to-use-state ... 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

Running the COMSOL® Software with Amazon EC2™

This document explains how to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™ with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud™ (EC2™). This requires that you have first acquired a Floating Network License (FNL) or COMSOL Server License (CSL) from COMSOL. The license manager ... Read More

Cluster Setup Validation

Use the Cluster Setup Validation app to validate if the current default cluster settings, as taken from the preferences, correctly submit jobs to the cluster. This app also allows you to override the default cluster settings to, for example, test modifications to the current setup or ... Read More
