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.

Neutralization of Chlorine in a Scrubber

This example studies the kinetics of the neutralization of chlorine gas in water solution. The model assumes that the fluid volume is perfectly mixed and constant. This means that the chlorine has dissolved to an almost saturated state (1·10-2 mol/m3) and that the hydroxide has also ... Read More

Linear Wave Retarder

Combinations of optical devices such as polarizers and wave retarders can be used to control the intensity and polarization of transmitted radiation. In this model, two linear polarizers with orthogonal transmission axes are used to reduce the intensity of a ray to zero. Then the ... Read More

Modeling Current Distribution in a 3D Lead-Acid Battery Grid Battery

This 3D model example demonstrates the use of the Lead-Acid Battery interface for modeling current distribution in full cell employing a lead-acid battery chemistry. The lead acid battery chemistry uses PbO2 as the positive porous electrode and Pb as the negative porous electrode and ... Read More

Calculating Mass and Energy Balances

This tutorial model can be used to learn how to calculate mass and energy balances. Get a detailed demonstration in this blog post: [How to Calculate Mass Conservation and Energy Balance](/blogs/how-to-calculate-mass-conservation-and-energy-balance/) Read More

Pressurized Orthotropic Container

A thin-walled container made of rolled steel is subjected to an internal overpressure. As an effect of the manufacturing method, one of the three material principal directions—the out-of- plane direction— has a higher yield stress than the other two. Hill’s orthotropic plasticity is used ... Read More

Effect of Bearing Misalignment on Rotor Vibration

In this example, a rotor supported on two hydrodynamic bearings is analyzed. An eccentric disk located between the two bearings causes the rotor to whirl. One of the bearings is misaligned with the axis of the rotor. The Beam Rotor with Hydrodynamic Bearing interface in the ... Read More

Parameter Optimization of a Tesla Microvalve

The topology optimized Tesla microvalve is used as inspiration for a parametrized geometry. The optimization of this geometry takes erosion and dilation of the geometry into account by optimizing over a parametric sweep. In this example the optimization is driven by the worst of the 3 ...

Viscous Catenary

The catenary is the geometrical shape that corresponds to the curve followed by an idealized chain or cable supported at both ends and hanging under its own weight. The viscous catenary problem describes the motion of a cylinder of highly viscous fluid, supported at its ends as it flows ... Read More

Evanescent Mode Cylindrical Cavity Filter

An evanescent-mode cavity filter is resonant at a frequency lower than its original fundamental mode frequency. Evanescent mode resonance can be realized by creating a discontinuity or reactance inside the cavity. The basic model was modified by the addition of a metal box at either ... Read More

Creating a Phase Envelope with a Multicomponent Flash Calculation

This is a demonstration how to use the thermodynamics functionality in COMSOL to make flash calculations. * A flash calculation is an equilibrium calculation of a system where several species and phases are present at the same time. The system in this model is an azeotropic mixture ... Read More
