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.

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

Modeling of 3-omega Method with Frequency-Domain Analysis of Heat Transfer

This model shows how to define a frequency-domain analysis of heat transfer. The 3-omega method uses the Cahill's equation to approximate the thermal conductivity of a sample from the measured temperature of a metal strip placed on top of it and subject to oscillating heating. The 2D ... Read More

Optimization Tutorials

The App solves various 2D benchmark problems illustrating the pros and cons of the optimization solvers. Read More

Dzhanibekov Effect

The Dzhanibekov effect, also called the intermediate axis theorem or tennis racket theorem, describes the behavior of a rigid body with three distinct principal moments of inertia. This simulation app can be used to test the Dzhanibekov effect in three different geometries, including a ... Read More

Model of an Argon/Oxygen Inductively Coupled Plasma Reactor

This tutorial model solves for an inductively coupled plasma reactor in a mixture of argon/oxygen. The model computes the fluid flow and gas heating. Important aspects and strategies for modeling electronegative discharges are discussed. 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

Shape Optimization of a 3D Tesla Microvalve

Tesla microvalves exploit the non-linear nature of inertial flow to create anisotropic flow resistance. They can be used as robust valves owing to their passive working mechanism, but for many applications the diodicity is too low. Two-dimensional simulations and optimization over ... Read More

Corner Cube Retroreflector

A corner cube retroreflector can be used to reflect rays in a direction exactly antiparallel to their initial direction, regardless of the angle of incidence. This tutorial shows how to simulate the reflection of a bundle of rays at a corner cube retroreflector using the Geometrical ... 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

Micromechanics of Failure: Multiscale Analysis of a Composite Structure

In this example, the structural integrity of a cylinder made by a fiber composite is assessed both at the macroscale and at the microscale level. Along with macroscale analyses, structural composites need microscale stress and failure analyses to identify the critical constituents in ... Read More
