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.

Slider Crank Mechanism

This is a benchmark model to test the numerical algorithms in the area of multibody dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of the slider crank mechanism. This mechanism goes through singular positions during its operation. The acceleration at a point is compared with ... Read More

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

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

Interpolation between points using a COMSOL App

This App will fit a surface through a set of points using Radial Basis Functions and will write out a COMSOL-format file of a smooth NURBS surface that passes through all of the points. The function describing the surface can also be written to a text file. The point data is read in ... Read More

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

Electrical Heating in a Busbar

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

Lombardi Surface Mobility

Surface acoustic phonons and surface roughness have an important effect on the carrier mobility, especially in the thin inversion layer under the gate in MOSFETs. The Lombardi surface mobility model adds surface scattering resulting from these effects to an existing mobility model using ... Read More

Using Text Files to Automate Model Preprocessing

This example demonstrates how to set up text files to use when preprocessing models that contain hundreds of parts. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Automate Model Preprocessing with the Application Builder]( ... Read More

Beam Section Calculator (using LiveLink™ for Excel®)

This application computes the beam section properties and true stress distribution in a designated steel beam section. A broad range of American and European beam standards are available. It uses LiveLink for Excel to read the beam data stored in workbook and to store the result in ... Read More

Alpha to Gamma Transition

Capacitively coupled RF discharges can operate in two distinct regimes depending on the discharge power. In the low power regime, known as the alpha regime, the electric field oscillation is responsible to heat and create electrons. In the high power regime, known as gamma regime, the ... Read More

Rössler Attractor

A Rossler attractor is a system of three non-linear, ordinary differential equations. The Rossler attractor is similar in nature to the Lorenz attractor. The non-linear equations can be solved in COMSOL by conveniently using the Massless formulation available in the Mathematical Particle ... Read More
