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.

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Wilkinson Power Divider

Some conventional three-port power dividers are resistive power dividers and T-junction power dividers. Such dividers are either lossy or not matched to the system reference impedance at all ports. In addition, isolation between two coupled ports is not guaranteed. The Wilkinson power ... 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

Beam Section Calculator (Using LiveLink™ for Excel®)

This app demonstrates the following: Reading and importing data from an Excel®-file Exporting data to an Excel®-file Light theme The app computes the beam section properties and true stress distribution in a designated steel beam section. A broad range of American and European beam ... 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

Golf Ball Trajectory

This model is used in the blog post "Why Do Golf Balls Have Dimples?". The trajectory of a golf ball is compared to the trajectory of a smooth ball using the Events interface and a system of ODEs in a 0D component. Read More

Shape Optimization of a Water Heater

This model demonstrates how to find the optimal size and position of a water pipe in an air chamber, so that the energy absorption in the water is maximized. The objective is implemented as a constraint, so that the optimization terminates, when the desired performance is achieved. Read More

Electrical Heating in a Busbar Assembly

This tutorial model of the Joule heating effect in a busbar demonstrates how to synchronize an assembly between Inventor and COMSOL, how to modify the geometry from COMSOL, and how to run a geometric parametric sweep. Read More

Gravitational Lensing

This model demonstrates how the sun causes 1.75 arcseconds of deflection for rays grazing the sun's surface as observed from the earth. Einstein predicted this value after refining his theory of relativity during World War I. Read More

HAMSTAD Benchmark 1: Heat and Moisture Transport in an Insulated Roof

This tutorial shows how to simulate coupled heat and moisture transport in an insulated roof structure, made of a load bearing and an insulation layer. The thermal insulation is facing the interior and there is a moisture barrier facing the exterior. The load bearing is capillary active ... Read More

Component Mode Synthesis Tutorial

In this tutorial example, the concepts of Component Mode Synthesis (CMS) are introduced through a simple solid model of a cantilever beam. Parts of the beam are reduced by the CMS technique. It is, furthermore, shown how CMS can be used to represent both the static and dynamic behavior ... Read More
