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.

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

Pyroelectric Detector

This 2D axisymmetric model demonstrates the operation of a pyroelectric detector found in instruments for measuring laser energy. A disk of lithium niobate (LiNbO3) is sandwiched between two electrodes and connected to an external circuit. The disk is mounted on a ring-shaped ... Read More

Dynamics of a Roller Chain Sprocket Assembly

Chain drives are used for transmitting power from one shaft to another, located at some distance. This example simulates the dynamics of a chain sprocket assembly in 2D. The geometry consists of a roller chain wrapped around two sprockets. Both chain links and sprockets are assumed to be ... Read More

Corrosion Protection of Multiple Oil Platforms

This example extends the corrosion protection system analysis of the single oil platform example by modeling the influence of multiple oil platforms placed in an array. The use of the Current Distribution on Edges, BEM interface significantly reduces the problem size and computational ... Read More

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Low-Pass Filter

One way to design a filter is to use the element values of well-known filter prototypes, such as maximally flat or equal-ripple low-pass filters. It is easier to fabricate a distributed element filter on a microwave substrate than a lumped element filter, since it is cumbersome to find ... Read More

Reaction Equilibrium - Gas Phase Conversion of Ethylene to Ethanol

This app demonstrates the following: How an app can be used as a teaching tool An 8 question multiple choice quiz where the answers can be sent to the grader by email This app calculates the equilibrium compositions in gas phase conversion of ethylene to ethanol. It allows you to ... Read More

Uncertainty Quantification of the Ishigami Function

This example demonstrates how to perform uncertainty quantification analysis of the Ishigami function. This random function of three variables is a well-known benchmark used to test global sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification algorithms. The mean, standard deviation, ... Read More

Modeling the Forces in a Bicycle Rim

Bicycle wheels are laced tangentially if they are intended to be used with disc brakes, because a radial pattern gives rise to larger forces in the rim. Otherwise, these rim forces are largely independent of the braking force. Read More

Cathodic Protection with Anode Deformation

This tutorial models the cathodic protection of an oil rig structure during a time period of 15 years. As a result of the consumption of the sacrificial anodes, the protective capabilities system are reduced over time. The anode shape change in the model is defined by using the Level ... Read More

Topology Optimization of a Step Thrust Bearing

In this tutorial model, a step thrust bearing is topology optimized to maximize the bearing capacity. A step thrust bearing consists of a stepped bearing surface on which the end of the shaft rotates. The entire assembly is submerged in a lubricant. The shaft collar is assumed to be ... Read More
