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.

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 ... Read More

1D Isothermal Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery

This model simulates the discharge of a Nickel-Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery using the Battery with Binary Electrolyte interface. The geometry is in one dimension and the model is isothermal. The model serves as an introduction to NiMH modeling, and can be further extended to include ... Read More

Gravitational Lensing

This model demonstrates how the sun causes 1.75 arcseconds of deflection for rays grazing the sun's surface as observed from the earth. Einstein predicted this value after refining his theory of relativity during World War I. Read More

Squeeze-Film Damping of Perforated Plates

This benchmark model compares the damping coefficients of perforated plates from computation results versus experimental data. The simulation includes 18 different geometric configurations. It uses the Bao's perforation model, which is built-in in the Thin Film Flow physics interface. ... Read More

Pulse Reverse Plating

This tutorial explores how pulse reverse plating can be used as an additive-free alternative to attenuate small protrusions during copper metal deposition. By matching the process parameters, including the length of the forward and reverse pulses (duty cycles), a bright mirror-like metal ... Read More

Isolator Thickness Effect

The use of Aluminum (Al) isolator is a commonly employed mitigation strategy for galvanic corrosion between magnesium alloy (Mg) and mild steel (MS). The present model demonstrates the effect of Al isolator thickness on galvanic corrosion severity using a parametric study. The electrode ... Read More

Light Diffusion in a Slab of Particles

This tutorial model shows how to use the Heat Transfer with Radiation in Absorbing-Scattering Media multiphysics interface to model light diffusion through a slab of particles, with the corresponding heating due to absorption and scattering. The numerical results are compared to an ... Read More

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 ... Read More

Molecular Flow Through an RF Coupler

This model computes the transmission probability through an RF coupler using both the angular coefficient method available in the Free Molecular Flow interface and a Monte Carlo method using the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface. The computed transmission probability determined by ... Read More

Electrical Heating in a Busbar Assembly

This tutorial model of the Joule heating effect in a busbar demonstrates how to synchronize an assembly between Creo Parametric and COMSOL, how to modify the geometry from COMSOL, and how to run a geometric parametric sweep. Read More
