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.

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

Modeling a Koch Snowflake

This example exemplifies how to model a Koch snowflake using the Application Builder. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Using the Application Builder to Create a Koch Snowflake]( ... Read More

Step Thrust Bearing

In this tutorial model, a six step thrust bearing is analyzed. A step thrust bearing consists of a stepped bearing surface on which the end of the shaft rotates. The entire assembly is submerged in a lubricant. The shaft collar is assumed to be spinning without any axial motion in the ... Read More

Forward Recovery of a PIN Diode

This tutorial simulates the turn-on transient (forward recovery) of a simple PIN diode, based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 242, 2008 edition). The diode is current driven with a constant ramp rate of 1e9, 2e9 and 1e10 A/cm^2/sec and a ... Read More

In-Plane Framework with Discrete Mass and Mass Moment of Inertia

In this model, you build and solve a 2D beam model using the 2D Structural Mechanics Beam interface. This model describes the eigenfrequency analysis of a simple geometry. A point mass and point mass moment of inertia are used in the model. The two first eigenfrequencies are compared ... Read More

Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Application

This example shows how to create a time-limited and hardware-locked application. It is associated with the section "Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Applications" in the _[Application Programming Guide](/documentation/ApplicationProgrammingGuide.pdf)_ (page 196). 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 ...

Danckwerts Benchmark

This model compares the solution to the model equations of a tubular reactor using Danckwerts inlet and outlet conditions. A second almost identical model is defined with extra inlet and outlet sections where no reactions occur. The concentration at the beginning of the inlet section is ... Read More

Pacemaker Electrode

This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in Pro/ENGINEER by using the LiveLink interface. Read More

Rotors Connected by a Spline Coupling

In this example, learn how to model two rotors connected by a spline coupling. The first rotor is a fixed cantilevered rotor and the second rotor is supported. The model assumes that only translational motion is coupled between the rotors through the coupling, while the rotations of both ... Read More
