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.
The chlor-alkali membrane process is one of the largest in industrial electrolysis with the production of roughly 40 million metric tons of both chlorine and caustic soda per year. Chlorine is used predominantly for the production of vinyl chloride monomer, which in turn is used for the ... Read More
For an electrochemical reaction to occur, the reacting species usually needs to adsorb to the electrode surface before undergoing reduction or oxidation, after which the resulting product species desorbs back into the electrolyte. If the rate of adsorption or desorption is slow in ... Read More
A bipolar membrane consists of one anion-selective, and one cation-selective membrane, in contact with each other. The combined cation and anion selectivity makes the bipolar membrane highly impermeable to all ions, with the exception of H+ and OH- which are formed by water splitting ... Read More
Zone electrophoresis (ZE) is an electrophoretic separation technique typically used for analyzing proteins, nucleic acids, and biopolymers. During the process, different species in a sample are transported in a continuous electrolyte buffer system, subject to a potential gradient. Due to ... Read More
This example applies the Electrophoretic Transport and Laminar Flow interfaces to model isoelectric separation in a free-flow electrophoresis device. A stream containing six different ionic species is shown to be divided into pure component streams by means of migrative transport in an ... Read More
This model incorporates the transport and electrolytic reaction in the treatment of tumor tissue. Oxygen evolution at the anode produces protons, which lowers the pH, while chlorine production also leads to lowered pH through the hydrolysis of chlorine. One effect of a low pH is the ... Read More
Electrochromic devices (ECDs) may be employed in ”smart” windows, for instance in buildings or motor cycle visors, where the transparency of the device can be controlled by applying a voltage. ECDs make use of the fact that the absorbance of visual light for a chemical species in a ... Read More
The common electroanalytical method of exhaustive amperometric detection in a microscopic thin layer is modelled as a 1D-symmetric diffusion problem. The simulated result agrees with the analytical Cottrell equation at short times, and deviates as expected at long times when the ... Read More
