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.

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

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

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

1D Step Bearing

This benchmark model computes the load-carrying capacity of a one dimensional hydrodynamic step bearing. The results are compared with analytic expressions obtained by solving the Reynolds equations directly in this simple case. Read More

Lithium Plating new

Deposition of metallic lithium on the negative electrode in preference to lithium intercalation is known to be a capacity loss and safety concern for lithium-ion batteries. Harsh charge conditions such as high currents (fast charging) and/or low temperatures can lead to lithium plating. ... Read More

Harmonic Content of the Power Deposition into a Dual Frequency Capacitively Coupled Plasma

Energy transfer from the time varying electrostatic field to electrons in a capacitively coupled plasmas (CCP) does not exclusively occur at twice the RF frequency. Due to the highly nonlinear mechanism of power transfer from the fields to the electrons, power deposition occurs at ... 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

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

Vortex Lattice Formation in a Rotating Bose–Einstein Condensate

This tutorial model solves the Gross–Pitaevskii Equation for the vortex lattice formation in a rotating Bose–Einstein condensate bound by a harmonic trap. The equation is essentially a nonlinear single-particle Schrödinger Equation, with the inter-particle interaction represented by a ... Read More
