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.
A gearbox is used to transfer power from an engine to its associated wheels or cogs, which can result in radiating noise to the surroundings. This is due to the transmission of undesired lateral and axial forces on the bearings and housing, while transmitting power from one shaft to the ... Read More
In the Vibration in an Induction Motor tutorial model, eddy currents are induced in the rotor by time-harmonic currents in the stator windings and rotation of the rotor. Induced currents in the rotor interact with the magnetic field that is produced by the coils to generate the driving ... Read More
This tutorial application demonstrates the modeling of a hinge joint between two bodies in COMSOL Multiphysics. Various nodes available for joints such as Constraints, Locking, Spring, Damper, Prescribed Motion, and Friction are also demonstrated. Many real structures can be ... Read More
In this example, a dynamic analysis of a three-cylinder reciprocating engine is performed to investigate stresses generated during operation, thereby permitting identification of the critical components. Demand for high power output relative to the weight of the engine requires careful ... Read More
This example illustrates the modeling of a multibody mechanism submerged in fluid. The mechanism considered here consists of two fins connected to a central rigid body through hinge joints. A transient fluid-structure interaction problem is solved to simulate the swimming behavior where ... Read More
Several mass–spring–damper models have been developed to study the response of a human body where mass, spring, and damper elements represent mass of different body parts, stiffness, and damping properties of various tissues. In this example, a lumped model of a human body having five ... Read More
This model illustrates the operation of a swashplate mechanism used in helicopters to translate the input of helicopter flight control into the motion of the rotor blades, and hence controls the orientation of the rotor blades. In this model, the rotor blades are modeled as either rigid ... Read More
Gyroscopes are used for measuring the orientation or maintaining the stability of airplanes, spacecraft, and submarines vehicles in general. They are also used as sensors in inertial guidance systems. This model demonstrates the modeling of a mechanical gyroscope. It analyzes the ... Read More
Vibration and noise in washing machines, due to the non-uniform distribution of clothes in the barrel, is a common problem worth studying and optimizing for. This model simulates a multibody dynamics model of a horizontal-axis portable washing machine. An eigenfrequency analysis is ... Read More
This model simulates vibrations in a compound gear train. Spur gears, used to model the gear train, are mounted on rigid shafts. The shafts are supported by an elastic housing at both ends. The gear mesh is assumed to be elastic with varying stiffness, which is the source of vibration. A ... Read More
