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.
Several different approaches to optimizing a ten-turn axisymmetric coil are presented. First, the current in each turn is adjusted with the objective of having a uniform magnetic flux density along the centerline. Second, the currents are adjusted to minimize power dissipation with a ... Read More
The model features the optimization of the geometry of a complex-shaped coil similar to those for induction heating applications. The geometry if fully built and parametrized in COMSOL Multiphysics (taking advantage of Geometry Parts; geometrical construction requires Design Module). The ... Read More
A demonstration of topology optimization using the Structural Mechanics Module and the Optimization Module. The classical MBB beam is solved in 2D using a Helmholtz filter and Solid Isotropic Material Penalization (SIMP) technique to recast the original combinatorial optimization problem ... Read More
This example shows how to perform a topology optimization with several load and constraint cases. The density feature for topology optimization is used together with a parametric sweep where each optimized solution is used as input for a further improved optimization. The final ... Read More
This model performs a topological optimization for a Tesla microvalve. A Tesla microvalve inhibits backwards flow using friction forces rather than moving parts. The design can be optimized by distributing a specific amount of material within the modeling domain. The goal is to maximize ... Read More
This tutorial introduces the use of topology optimization in acoustics. The goal of the optimization is to find the optimal material distribution (solid or air) in a given design domain, here the ceiling of a 2D room, that minimizes the average sound pressure level in an objective ... Read More
Impedance tubes are used for estimating the surface impedance of various samples, for example, a layer of porous material used for sound inlulation. This model shows how the five material parameters of the Johnson-Champoux-Allard model can be estimated from the pressure at two ... Read More
This tutorial demonstrates how to compute the periodic steady-state solution of a nonlinear model problem using an optimization solver. The solver modifies the initial conditions at the beginning of a period to match the solution at the end of the period. The model solves much faster ... Read More
This application illustrates how to use COMSOL’s optimization capabilities to automatically develop novel designs satisfying critical design constraints. The model optimizes a simple speaker geometry. Examples of constraints could include the radius of the loudspeaker or a desired ... Read More
