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. 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.

This asset contains the model file described in the blog post titled "Approaching an Electrochemical Model from Scratch: Lemon Battery". Read More

Viscous Catenary

The catenary is the geometrical shape that corresponds to the curve followed by an idealized chain or cable supported at both ends and hanging under its own weight. The viscous catenary problem describes the motion of a cylinder of highly viscous fluid, supported at its ends as it flows ... Read More

Shell Conduction

This model simulates a static analysis of heat conduction in a thin conductive shell. This is a benchmark model where the result is compared with a NAFEMS benchmark solution. Read More

Shape Optimization of a 3D Tesla Microvalve

Tesla microvalves exploit the non-linear nature of inertial flow to create anisotropic flow resistance. They can be used as robust valves owing to their passive working mechanism, but for many applications the diodicity is too low. Two-dimensional simulations and optimization over ... Read More

Busbar Assembly Geometry Tutorial Series

This tutorial series describes in two different ways how to organize a more complex geometry. Read More

Step Thrust Bearing

In this tutorial model, a six step thrust bearing is analyzed. A step thrust bearing consists of a stepped bearing surface on which the end of the shaft rotates. The entire assembly is submerged in a lubricant. The shaft collar is assumed to be spinning without any axial motion in the ... 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

Annular Ultraviolet Reactor

This model demonstrates how to compute the volumetric fluence rate in an ultraviolet (UV) reactor. The geometry is the annular fluid region surrounding a cylindrical lamp. The effect of reflection at the reactor walls on the radial fluence rate distribution is considered. Read More

Rolling of a Rigid Wheel

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate pure rolling of a rigid wheel when given an initial forward velocity together with a prescribed lean about this direction. It is assumed that the the rolling motion of the wheel is not affected by contact such that all three components of the ... Read More

Evanescent Mode Cylindrical Cavity Filter

An evanescent-mode cavity filter is resonant at a frequency lower than its original fundamental mode frequency. Evanescent mode resonance can be realized by creating a discontinuity or reactance inside the cavity. The basic model was modified by the addition of a metal box at either end ... Read More
