Fluid-Structure Interaction

This model demonstrates how to set up a fluid-structure interaction problem in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how fluid flow can deform solid structures and how to solve for the flow in a continuously deforming geometry. The Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) multiphysics interface ...

Generation of Random Surfaces

These examples demonstrate how to generate randomized geometric surfaces. The COMSOL Multiphysics® software provides a powerful set of built-in functions and operators, such as functions for uniform and Gaussian random distributions and a very useful sum operator. In the blog ... Read More

Piezoelectric Energy Harvester

This model shows how to analyze a simple, cantilever based, piezoelectric energy harvester. A sinusoidal acceleration is applied to the energy harvester and the output power is evaluated as a function of frequency, load impedance and acceleration magnitude. Read More

Microresistor Beam

This example illustrates the ability to couple thermal, electrical, and structural analysis in one model. This particular application moves a beam by passing a current through it; the current generates heat, and the temperature increase leads to displacement through thermal expansion. ... Read More

Random Vibration Test of a Motherboard

In this example, a random vibration test of electronic equipment is simulated. Three analyses are performed, one for acceleration in each global direction. Accelerations in the components and forces in clamping bolts are evaluated. Read More

Piezoresistive Pressure Sensor, Shell

Piezoresistive pressure sensors were some of the first MEMS devices to be commercialized. Compared to capacitive pressure sensors, they are simpler to integrate with electronics, their response is more linear and they are inherently shielded from RF noise. They do, however, usually ... Read More

Thermal Stresses in a Layered Plate

The thermal stress in a layered plate is studied in this example. A plate consisting of two layers, a coating and a substrate layer, is stress and strain free at 800 degrees C. The temperature of the plate is reduced to 150 degrees C and thermal stresses are induced due to the difference ... Read More

Capacitive Pressure Sensor

A capacitive pressure sensor is simulated. This model shows how to simulate the response of the pressure sensor to an applied pressure, and also how to analyze the effects of packing induced stresses on the sensor performance. Read More

Thickness Shear Mode Quartz Oscillator

AT cut quartz crystals are widely employed in a range of applications, from oscillators to microbalances. One of the important properties of the AT cut is that the resonant frequency of the crystal is temperature independent to first order. This is desirable in both mass sensing and ... Read More

A Piezoelectric Micropump

This tutorial model is kindly provided by Riccardo Vietri, James Ransley and Andrew Spann at Veryst Engineering, LLC. Piezoelectric micropumps are frequently used in medical applications because of their ability to precisely control the metering of very small volumes of fluids or gases. ... Read More
