Fountain Flow Effects on Electrodeposition on a Rotating Wafer

This example extends the analysis made in the model Electrodeposition on a Resistive Patterned Wafer by including the diffusion and convection of copper ions in the electrolyte. The coupled mass transport convection-diffusion effects are of interest in this type of reactor since they ... Read More

W-Band Waveguide to Microstrip Line Transition

In this model, the electrical performance of a W-band waveguide to microstrip line transition (WMLT) is investigated. A standard WR10 waveguide is used and the transition from waveguide to microstrip line is achieved by utilizing the longitudinal probe (also known as E-plane probe) ... Read More

Bulk temperature evaluation

This tutorial illustrates how to use built-in variables and operators, for the evaluation of the bulk temperature along a geometry like a channel, a pipe or a chimney, in a nonisothermal flow in 2D and 3D. The bulk temperature may be needed to compute the heat transfer coefficient for an ... Read More

Primary Creep Under Nonconstant Load

In this model example, you will study the creep behavior of material under non-constant loading. You will model the primary creep using a Norton-Bailey law and study the difference between the time hardening and the strain hardening methods available in COMSOL Multiphysics. The model is ...

Truss Tower Buckling

Buckling analysis is the search for the critical compressive load beyond which structures become unstable. The Truss Tower Buckling analysis application simulates the buckling of a truss tower under vertical compressive loads to provide the critical compressive load. With the app, you ... Read More

Optimization of a Waveguide Iris Bandpass Filter — Transformation Version

A waveguide filter is designed using shape optimization by moving and scaling rectangles in the geometry. The irises of the initial geometry are optimized to ensure good bandpass response and out-of-band rejection, while maintaining the double mirror symmetry. Read More

Energy Conservation with Thermoviscous Acoustics

This small tutorial model studies energy conservation in a small conceptual test setup. The model has an inlet and outlet (modeled using ports) and a Helmholtz resonator with a very narrow neck. The acoustics in the narrow neck are modeled with Thermoviscous Acoustic for a detailed ... Read More

Petzval Lens Geometric Modulation Transfer Function

This model and tutorial demonstrates the use of an Application Method to compute and plot the geometric Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) for the Petzval Lens. Read More

Magnetic Frill

Feeding antennas with proper signals can be difficult. The signal is often described as a voltage, and voltages are not well defined in electromagnetic wave formulations. There are several tricks to model voltage generators in such situations, and one is the magnetic frill. This model ... Read More

Trimmer Capacitor

A trimmer capacitor has a variable capacitance. One way of obtaining this is to use parallel facing electrodes with a variable overlap area. In this example, the capacitance can be changed by turning one electrode using a screwdriver. Typically a linear angular response is desired. ... Read More
