SEIR Model for the COVID-19 Epidemic

Tutorial example of a Erlang SEIR model for the epidemic of COVID-19. The model is validated against data from China, Sweden, and the US. Parametric estimation is done using the reported deaths over time. The tutorial investigates the impact of social distancing on the progress of the ... Read More

Bracket — Topology Optimization

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

Optimizing Coils

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

Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve

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

Geometry optimization of a 3D complex-shaped coil for induction heating

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

Topology Optimization of an MBB Beam

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

Impedance Tube Parameter Estimation with Data Generation

Impedance tubes are used for estimating the surface impedance of various samples, for example, a layer of porous material used for sound insulation. This model shows how the five material parameters of the Johnson-Champoux-Allard model can be estimated from the pressure at two ... Read More

Mooney-Rivlin Curve Fit

This presentation shows how to use the Optimization Module to fit a material model curve to experimental data. It is based on the hyperelastic Mooney-Rivlin material model example given in the Structural Mechanics users guide. Read More

Parameter Estimation for a Tensile Test

The model shows how to estimate the Young's modulus and Poisson ratio based on a tensile test. The test measures the tensile force and the radial displacement for different values of the prescribed displacement. The model is based on synthetic data generated in the model itself. It is ...

Multistudy Optimization of a Bracket

In this shape optimization example, the mass of a bracket is minimized by changing the size and position of a number of geometrical objects. The requirements give limits both on the lowest natural frequency, and on the maximum stress in a static load case. This means that results from ... Read More
