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.

Squeeze-Film Damping of Perforated Plates

This benchmark model compares the damping coefficients of perforated plates from computation results versus experimental data. The simulation includes 18 different geometric configurations. It uses the Bao's perforation model, which is built-in in the Thin Film Flow physics interface. ... Read More

Thermoelectric Cooler, Lumped Thermal System

Thermoelectric coolers are widely used for electronics cooling in various application areas, ranging from consumer products to spacecraft design. The thermoelectric modules are a common application of thermoelectricity in cooling engineering. They consist of several thermoelectric legs ... Read More

Generalized Kelvin Viscoelastic Material

The behavior of viscoelastic materials can be represented by conceptual models composed of elastic and viscous elements connected in series or in parallel. The rheology of the generalized Kelvin model (also called generalized Kelvin-Voigt model) consists of an elastic spring to ... Read More

Squeeze-Film Gas Damping of a Vibrating Disc

This benchmark model computes the total force acting on a vibrating disc in the frequency and time domains and compares both results with expressions derived analytically. When the vibration amplitude is small enough that the system is linear the frequency and time domain results agree ... Read More

Simulation of RF Tissue Ablation

This example exemplifies how to model tissue ablation through applying RF radiation. A more detailed description of the phenomenon, and the modeling process, can be seen in the blog post "[Study Radiofrequency Tissue Ablation Using Simulation](/blogs/study-radiofrequency-tissue-ablation ...

Eigenfrequency Shifts Caused by Temperature Changes

This example explores the shift in natural frequencies caused by changing the temperature. One study investigates a doubly clamped beam where both ends are fixed, while the other study looks at a cantilever beam where only one end is fixed. The following effects are studied: * Stress ... Read More

Applying a Current-Voltage Switch to Models

This example exemplifies how to model the switching between current and voltage excitations in *Terminal* boundary conditions. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Control Current and Voltage Sources with the AC/DC Module]( ... Read More

Microresistor Beam

Microresistors allow for quick and accurate actuation or structural movement directly related to the electricity that is applied to them. Microresistors can be used in many applications where small perturbations or deflections are required to be applied to devices, almost ... Read More

Pull-In and Pull-Out Analysis of a Biased Resonator — 2D

An electrostatically actuated MEMS resonator is simulated. The device is driven by an AC + DC bias voltage applied across a parallel plate capacitor. In this example, the pull-in and pull-out voltages of the resonator are computed. This is done via a quasi-static analysis of the ... Read More

Taylor Cone with Level Set

This model is almost identical to the Taylor cone model built by Dan Smith (modeldb entry 2051). The only difference is that this version is implemented in COMSOL 5.4 and therefore uses the level set interface instead of the phase field interface. Read More
