Ball Partition Add-In

This add-in makes the editing of imported meshes much more convenient. It often happens when working with mesh import that a small defect needs to be deleted. There are two options to partition a surface mesh: *Partition with Ball* or *Create Edges*. Both operations can be time ... Read More

Tank Series with Feedback Control

This example illustrates how to set up and solve a tank-in-series model in 0D using the Reaction Engineering interface. The model treats a series of three consecutive tank reactors. A feedback loop continuously adjusts the inlet concentration of the first tank to keep the concentration ... Read More

Quasi-2D Turbomolecular Pump

The Monte Carlo simulation of flow in a turbomolecular pump can be greatly simplified if the mean radius of the blades is much greater than the spacing between them. Under these conditions, the rotating blades of the pump can be approximated as an infinite row of blades having only ... Read More

Optimization of a Truss Tower

Gradient based optimization is an efficient way of computing better values for many control variables. This example optimizes diameters of individual members in a truss structure such that the structure becomes stiffer without adding mass to the structure. The structure will be only be ... Read More

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 the ... Read More

How to Export Images Automatically After Solving

This example demonstrates how to use a parameterized slice plot and animation functionality to export a sequence of images. In addition, the example shows how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations where the model is first solved and then the image ... Read More

Critical Speed of a Dual Rotor System

Due to the demand for larger power with a smaller size, dual-shaft systems with intershaft bearings are becoming a standard configuration for gas turbine engines. Such systems consist of two coaxial rotors running at different speeds, interlinked through a multi-spool bearing. In this ... Read More

Thermostat with a Reactionary Delay

This example shows how to model the behavior of a thermostat where a delay in its reaction has been implemented. A more detailed description of the phenomenon, and the modeling process, can be seen in the blog post "[How to Implement a Delay in Your Thermostat Simulation]( ... Read More

Optimization of a Crane Link Mechanism

In complex mechanical systems, it can be challenging to find an optimal (or even good enough) solution only through engineering insight or trial-and-error procedures. Using mathematical optimization methods can then be an efficient path to a better design. In this example, a link ... 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
