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.

Reverse Recovery of a PIN Diode

This tutorial simulates the turn-off transient (reverse recovery) of a simple PIN diode with an inductive load, loosely based on the book "Fundamentals of Power Semiconductor Devices" by B. J. Baliga (p. 256, 2008 edition). Unlike the book, which assumes an initial constant current ramp ... 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

Discrete Ordinates Quadrature Sets for Heat Transfer with Radiation in Participating Medium

This model is used on "Heat Transfer with Radiation in Participating Media and the Discrete Ordinates Method" to compare quadrature sets used in the method of discrete ordinates. To assess the performance of quadrature sets in complex geometries, results of incident irradiation and ... Read More

Cluster Setup Validation

Use this app to validate that the default settings correctly submit jobs to a cluster. These default settings are taken from the preferences. The app allows you to override the default cluster settings, test modifications to the current setup, and test different settings for connecting ... Read More

Writing Out Simulation and Mesh Data to Text Files

This example exemplifies how you can export the data from your mesh and results to a text file. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "Exporting Meshes and Solutions Using the Application Builder". 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

Thermal Insulation on Internal Boundary

The purpose of this model is to introduce the Thermal Insulation feature available in Heat Transfer interfaces. Thermal Insulation is the default feature for external boundaries. An additional Thermal Insulation node is necessary in order to apply a thermal insulation condition to an ... Read More

Wheel Rim — Topology Optimization with Milling Constraints

Topology optimization can result in novel designs due the extreme design freedom associated with the method. Conventional manufacturing techniques impose constraints on the geometry which are often violated by topology optimization. This model demonstrates how the milling constraint ... Read More

Density-Gradient and Schrödinger-Poisson Results for a Silicon Inversion Layer

This tutorial demonstrates the use of the density-gradient formulation to include the effect of quantum confinement in the device physics simulation of a silicon inversion layer. This formulation requires only a moderate increase of computational resources as compared to the conventional ... Read More

Cathodic Protection Designer

The Cathodic Protection Designer application is an example of how an application can be used to simplify the simulation process by featuring a way to import a generic CAD file with certain requirements. Using this app, the user can select each part of the geometry and set boundary ... Read More
