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.


Thermal Insulation on Internal Boundary

The purpose of this model is to introduce the Thermal Insulation feature available in Heat Transfer interfaces. Thermal Insulation is the default feature for external boundaries. An additional Thermal Insulation node is necessary in order to apply a thermal insulation condition to an internal boundary.

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from Creo Parametric via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz.

Connecting Beams and Solids

This example demonstrates the use of the **Solid-Beam Connection** multiphysics coupling to create transitions between the Solid Mechanics and Beam interfaces. Two different connection types are discussed, and a comparison of the stress distributions at the transition is made.

Turbocharger Supported on Floating Ring Bearings

In this model, a turbocharger supported on two floating ring bearings is studied. The film forces on the ring cause it to rotate within the bearing. In steady state, the ring rotates at a constant angular speed and the torque on the ring due to the inner and outer films are balanced. The Beam Rotor interface is used to model the turbocharger rotor which is coupled with the floating ring bearing ...

Reverse Recovery of a PIN Diode

This tutorial simulates the turn-off transient (reverse recovery) of a simple PIN diode with an inductive load, loosely based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 256, 2008 edition). Unlike the book, which assumes an initial constant current ramp rate followed by an abrupt bottoming out of the device voltage at the supplied reverse voltage, in this model ...

Hubble Space Telescope

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is an example of a standard Cassegrain telescope. The Conic Mirror On Axis 3D part from the COMSOL part library is used to construct the HST Ritchey-Chretien geometry. Multiple release features are used to generate on and off-axis ray and spot diagrams.

Pacemaker Electrode

This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in Solid Edge by using the LiveLink interface.

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 Rotordynamics Module is used for the combined simulation of rotor and bearings. The analysis is performed with and without ...

Spherical Cap with Central Point Load

This benchmark studies the nonlinear deformation of a spherical cap subjected to point load at center using 2D axisymmetric Solid Mechanics and Shell interfaces. The results from the Shell interface are compared with Solid Mechanics interface as well as with analytical results given in the benchmark for different discretizations.

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from Inventor via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz.
