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.

Stress Analysis of a Roller Chain Sprocket Assembly

Chain drives are used for transmitting power from one shaft to another, located at some distance. This example demonstrates how to model a chain sprocket assembly in 3D. The geometry consists of a roller chain wrapped around two sprockets. All components are assumed to be elastic. The ... Read More

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Wilkinson Power Divider

Some conventional three-port power dividers are resistive power dividers and T-junction power dividers. Such dividers are either lossy or not matched to the system reference impedance at all ports. In addition, isolation between two coupled ports is not guaranteed. The Wilkinson power ... Read More

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. ... Read More

Newtonian Telescope Structural Analysis

This tutorial demonstrates a structural analysis of a simple telescope. The deformation of the telescope structure under gravity is examined and the effect on image quality is demonstrated. Read More

Shape Optimization of a Wrench

This model shows how to use the Free Shape Boundary feature to increase the stiffness of a wrench without increasing its mass. Read More

Electroplating of Multiple Components in a Rack

When several components are to be electroplated they are typically mounted on a rack in the electroplating bath. An important aspect is then achieving a uniform thickness of the plated layer for all components mounted on the rack. This example model allows for investigating the effect ... Read More

Axial Homopolar Induction Bearing in 3D

This model illustrates the working principle of an axial homopolar induction bearing. An electrically conducting rotor rotating in a magnetic field produced by a permanent magnets induces eddy currents on the conducting rotor. The eddy currents, in turn, produce a magnetic field that ... Read More

Gross–Pitaevskii Equation for Bose–Einstein Condensation

This tutorial model solves the Gross–Pitaevskii Equation for the ground state of a Bose–Einstein condensate in a harmonic trap, using the Schrödinger Equation physics interface in the Semiconductor Module. The equation is essentially a nonlinear single-particle Schrödinger Equation, with ... Read More

White Pupil Échelle Spectrograph

Échelle spectrographs are commonly used in astronomy for high-resolution analyses of stellar atmospheres and for precision Doppler velocimetry. This tutorial simulates a "white pupil" form of this instrument. It makes use of several parts from the COMSOL Part Library and demonstrates the ... Read More

Shape Optimization of a Shell

This model demonstrates how to use the _Free Shape Shell_ feature to increase the stiffness of a shell by deforming its shape. Read More
