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.

Curve Digitizer

The Curve Digitizer application can be used to digitize/extract curves from images. This application provides an easy way to digitize a variety of 1D plots with different axes in Cartesian or Polar coordinate system. After a curve image is imported, the digitization is done in a few ... Read More

Welding of a Titanium Plate

This model simulates arc welding of a titanium plate made from an alpha-beta titanium alloy. During a weld pass, the material experiences a thermal transient, including both heating and cooling. Phase transformations are modeled, and the evolution of the phase composition over time is ... Read More

Thin Layer Chronoamperometry

The common electroanalytical method of exhaustive amperometric detection in a microscopic thin layer is modelled as a 1D-symmetric diffusion problem. The simulated result agrees with the analytical Cottrell equation at short times, and deviates as expected at long times when the ... Read More

Modeling Current Distribution in a 3D Lead-Acid Battery Grid Battery

This 3D model example demonstrates the use of the Lead-Acid Battery interface for modeling current distribution in full cell employing a lead-acid battery chemistry. The lead acid battery chemistry uses PbO2 as the positive porous electrode and Pb as the negative porous electrode and ... 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

Transformation Diagram Computation

During quenching of steel, austenite decomposes into phases such as ferrite, pearlite, bainite, and martensite. A common way to illustrate the phase transformation characteristics of a particular steel alloy is to use transformation diagrams. Two of the most commonly used diagram types ... 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

Mandelbrot Set and Perlin Noise

Fractals exhibit self-similarity at different scales and are often found in nature. Fractal noise is a technique used to emulate organic-looking textures, such as to achieve realistic visualizations of various materials in COMSOL Multiphysics®. These models demonstrate how to ... Read More

Area Scaling Factor in Heat Transfer in Shells

This tutorial model demonstrates the use of the Area Scaling Factor (ASF) in the Heat Transfer in Shells interface, to account for the curvature of the layers when applying heat fluxes and heat sources. The results obtained with the Heat Transfer in Shells interface applied to a ... Read More
