Petzval Lens STOP Analysis

This model demonstrates an integrated structural-thermal-optical performance (STOP) analysis of an optical system. The Petzval Lens tutoral is used as the basis for this model, together with a simple barrel geometry The isothermal model performs a Parametric Sweep over several uniform temperature values and the effect on the displacement fields and image quality as a function of temperature is ...

S-parameter of a Thin-Film BAW Resonator

This model shows how to compute the S-parameter for a piezoelectric MEMS device by extending the tutorial Thin-Film BAW Composite Resonator. The measurement of S-parameter is commonly used to characterize such devices for RF applications. The terminal feature in the Electrostatics physics interface provides straightforward access to the computed S-parameters for frequency domain study types.

Child's Law Benchmark

Space charge limited emission is a phenomenon that restricts the current of charged particles that can be released from a surface. As the electron current released by a cathode increases, so does the magnitude of the charge density in the immediate vicinity of the cathode. This distribution of charge density exerts an electric force on the emitted electrons, directed toward the cathode. The ...

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 plasmid DNA (pDNA) to target sites and the conversion between different forms of pDNA. This example ...

Instability of a Space Arc Frame

This model illustrates the instability of a space arc frame under concentrated vertical loading. The *Beam* interface is utilized. Two different approaches are used: 1. A full incremental nonlinear analysis, where a small lateral load is applied to break the symmetry of the structure 2. A linear buckling study The results are compared with available literature data.

How to Export Images Automatically After Solving

This example demonstrates how to use a parameterized slice plot and animation functionality to export a sequence of images. In addition, the example shows how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations where the model is first solved and then the image sequence is generated and saved to file, all automatically. In the blog post associated with these files, "[How to ...

Duct with Right Angled Bend

In this tutorial the acoustic behavior of a duct or waveguide with a right angled bend is analyzed. The model uses port boundary conditions at the inlet and outlet. The ports can capture and treat non-plane propagating modes in waveguides, extending the analysis above the first cutoff frequency. The transmission loss and the scattering coefficients of the system are determined.

GEC CCP Reactor, Argon Chemistry, 1D

The NIST GEC CCP reactor provides a platform for studying capacitively coupled plasmas. Even the simplest plasma models are quite involved so a 1D example helps in understanding the physics without excessive CPU time. The problem has no steady-state solution, although a periodic steady-state solution is reached after a suitable number of RF cycles (usually >1000).

Harmonic Content of the Power Deposition into a Dual Frequency Capacitively Coupled Plasma

Energy transfer from the time varying electrostatic field to electrons in a capacitively coupled plasmas (CCP) does not exclusively occur at twice the RF frequency. Due to the highly nonlinear mechanism of power transfer from the fields to the electrons, power deposition occurs at frequencies higher than twice the driving frequency. For dual frequency CCP reactors the harmonic content of the ...

Material Characteristics of Laminated Composite Shell

This model serves the purpose of validation and verification of the Layered Linear Elastic Material model in the Shell interface. In COMSOL Multiphysics, composites are analyzed either based on Layerwise 3D elasticity theory through the Layered Shell interface or based on FSDT-ESL theory through the Shell interface. The First Order Shear Deformation Theory (FSDT-ESL) is implemented in the ...
