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.


Rotating Cylinder Hull Cell

Rotating cylinder Hull cells are an important experimental tool in electroplating and electrodeposition and are used for the measurement of nonuniform current distribution, mass transport, and throwing power of plating baths. The model reproduces the results for a commercially available ... Read More

Global Model Coupled with the Two-Term Boltzmann Equation

The electron energy distribution function (EEDF) plays an important role in the overall behavior of discharges. In this example, the formation period of an Argon plasma is studied with special attention paid to the EEDF. The plasma is created within a 4 cm gap by a DC source voltage of 1 ... Read More

Thermal Drift in a Microwave Cavity Filter

Microwave filters are used to eliminate unwanted frequency components in the output from microwave transmitters. They are typically inserted between a power amplifier and an antenna. The amplifiers are nonlinear and produce harmonics that must be eliminated with filters that have a ... Read More

Degradation of DNA in Plasma

Biotechnology is a rapidly growing area in the pharmaceutical sciences. One example of a clinical application is gene therapy, where it is possible to produce proteins in vivo, using the body’s own mechanisms for protein production. Major issues in gene delivery involve the transport of ... Read More

Single-Phase Induction Motor: TEAM Workshop Problem 30

This is a single-phase induction motor model from the Transient Electromagnetic Analysis Method (TEAM) workshop problem 30. The electromagnetic torque, induced voltage, and rotor losses are computed with COMSOL Multiphysics at various rotor speed and compared with the results from TEAM ... Read More

Adsorption and Desorption of Water in a Load Lock Vacuum System

This model shows how to simulate the time-dependent adsorption and desorption of water in a vacuum system at low pressures. The water is introduced into the system when a gate valve to a load lock is opened and the subsequent migration and pumping of the water is modeled. Read More

Sensitive High-Resolution Ion Microprobe

This tutorial utilizes the Particle Beam feature to examine the performance of a high-precision spectrometer. An ion beam is subjected to electric and magnetic forces, and only a fraction of the incoming beam is transmitted to the detector. The Particle Counter feature is used to compute ... Read More

Study of a Defective Microstrip Line via Frequency-to-Time FFT Analysis

While transient analyses are useful for time domain reflectometry (TDR) to handle signal integrity (SI) problems, many RF and microwave examples are addressed using frequency domain simulations generating S-parameters. However, from the frequency domain data it is difficult to identify ... Read More

Surface-to-Surface Radiation with Specular Reflection

The purpose of this model is to introduce the specular reflection in Surface-to-Surface Radiation using Ray Shooting algorithm. Different parameters are available to the user to yield better accuracy in the results when using the Ray Shooting algorithm. The model is a standard benchmark ... 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
