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.

Semibatch Polymerization

As reactant monomer converts into polymer chains, the density of the reacting mixture often changes notably. In this example you will look at how this effect impacts the total production of polymer in a process. The liquid phase polymerization takes place in a semibatch reactor, where ... Read More

Notch Approximation to Low-Cycle Fatigue Analysis of Cylinder with a Hole

A load carrying component of a structure is subjected to multi-axial cyclic loading during which localized yielding of the material occurs. In this model you perform a low cycle fatigue analysis of the part based on the Smith-Watson-Topper (SWT) model. Due to localized yielding, you ... Read More

Dynamic Behavior of a Spring Loaded Rotating Slider

This model illustrates the modeling of slider motion caused by a base rotation. The motion of the slider is analyzed under various forces such as inertia force, centrifugal force, spring force and damping force. The prismatic joint, which is used to connect the two components, is spring ... Read More

Centrifugal Governor Simulator

Centrifugal governors, a specific type of governor, control the speed of an engine by regulating the amount of admitted fuel. In order to maintain a near-constant speed, regardless of the load or fuel supply conditions, centrifugal governors use the principle of proportional control. ... Read More

Optimization of a Heat Load over Time Using a Space-Time Model

This model demonstrates how to use a space-time formulation to optimize a heating profile over time. Get an overview in the accompanying blog post Equation-Based Modeling with a Space-Time Discretization. Read More

Trench-gate IGBT 2D

In this first half of a two-part example, a 2D model of a trench-gate IGBT is built, which will be extended to 3D in the second half. In general, it is the most efficient to start with a 2D model to make sure everything works as expected, before extending it to 3D. The Caughey-Thomas ... Read More

Thermal Bridges in Building Construction — 2D Square Column

This example studies heat transfer in a square column. Cold and hot temperature conditions are applied to the boundaries. Due to the symmetry of the problem, the geometry is simplified to half of the square. The temperature field is compared with the analytic data. This example ... Read More

Microwave Filter on PCB with Stress

Microstrip filters can be fabricated directly on a printed circuit board (PCB) with a microstrip line going from the input to the output. Along the microstrip line there are a number of stubs of certain lengths and widths. The design of the filter involves choosing the impedance of the ... Read More

Heat Transfer Modeling in Cellulosic Material Oxidation

Thermally induced transformations in solids may be modeled by using an Arrhenius law to express the dependence on temperature of the transformation rate. This tutorial model shows how to use the Irreversible Transformation subfeature, available under the Solid feature of the Heat ... Read More

Surface-Trap-Induced Hysteresis in an InAs Nanowire FET, a Density-Gradient Analysis

This tutorial analyzes the hysteresis of the conductance-gate-voltage (G-Vg) curves of an InAs nanowire FET, using the density-gradient theory to add the effect of quantum confinement to the conventional drift-diffusion formulation, without a large increase of computational costs. The ... Read More
