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.

Damping Coefficients of a Squeeze Film Damper

Squeeze film dampers are components that provide additional damping to rotating machines. To simplify the modeling of a rotor assembly, squeeze film dampers are modeled in terms of their damping coefficients which are a functions of the journal location in the damper. This model computes ... Read More

Gregory-Maksutov Telescope

The Gregory-Maksutov telescope is a simple catadioptric telescope comprising a spherical corrector lens and a spherical primary mirror. In this example the corrector lens and mirror are formed using the 'Spherical Lens 3D' and 'Spherical Mirror 3D' parts respectively from the Ray Optics ... 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

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

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

Maximizing the Buckling Load of a Diagonal Brace

Buckling is a common failure mode for slender structural components. This model shows how the buckling load of a diagonal brace can be maximized, while constraining the volume of the brace. Read More
