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.

Electrodeposition Modulex

Diffuse Double Layer

At the electrode-electrolyte interface, there is a thin layer of space charge in a diffuse double layer. This may be of interest when modeling devices such as electrochemical capacitors and nanoelectrodes. This tutorial example shows how to couple the Nernst-Planck equations to the ... Read More

Copper Deposition in a Trench

This model demonstrates the use of moving meshes in the application of copper electrodeposition on circuit boards. In these environments, the presence of cavities or 'trenches' are apparent. The model makes use of the Tertiary, Nernst-Planck interface for electrodeposition to keep track ... Read More

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

The purpose of this app is to understand EIS, Nyquist, and Bode plots. The app lets you vary the bulk concentration, diffusion coefficient, exchange current density, double layer capacitance, and the maximum and minimum frequency. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a common ... Read More

Two-Phase Flow Modeling of Copper Electrowinning Using Bubbly Flow

Copper electrowinning is the process of copper extraction from an electrolyte solution and its deposition at the cathode surface, by passing an external current through the electrolytic cell and using an insoluble anode. During the process, oxygen bubbles are generated at the anode ... Read More

Cyclic Voltammetry at a Macroelectrode in 1D

The purpose of the app is to demonstrate and simulate the use of cyclic voltammetry. You can vary the bulk concentration of both species, transport properties, kinetic parameters, as well as the cycling voltage window and scan rate. Cyclic voltammetry is a common analytical technique ... Read More

Orange Battery

This tutorial example models the currents and the concentration of dissolved metal ions in a battery (corrosion cell) made from an orange and two metal nails. This type of battery is commonly used in chemistry lessons. Instead of an orange, lemons or potatoes can also be used. Read More

A Two Phase Model For A Five Layer PEM Fuel Cell MEA

A low temperature PEM fuel cell produces water on the cathode side, and for higher currents liquid water will form in the porous layers and in the flow field The presence of liquid water has a large impact on the humidification of the ion-conducting polymer electrolyte, the transport of ...

Voltammetry at a Microdisk Electrode

Voltammetry is modeled at a microelectrode of 10um radius. In this common analytical electrochemistry technique, the potential at a working electrode is swept up and down and the current is recorded. The current-voltage waveform ("voltammogram") gives information about the reactivity and ... Read More

Potential Profile in Batteries and Electrochemical Cells

The purpose of this model is to visualize the electric potential in an electrochemical cell, for example a battery. This is done at OCV and during operation. In a battery, this would correspond to OCV, discharge, and recharge. The potential profile is explained both for cells with planar ... Read More

Electrochemical Machining of a Microbore

For several high-precision applications, especially in hydraulic systems and fuel injectors, micro bores are needed. In most cases the shape of the injection hole, especially the edge rounding, has a significant influence on the atomization of fluids and therefore on the combustion ... Read More
