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.

Recursion and Recursively Defined Geometry Objects

You can use the Method Editor in the Application Builder for creating methods that perform almost any type of modeling tasks, including geometry modeling. It is easy to miss the fact that methods can support recursion by having a method calling itself in a recursive loop. Here, we will ... Read More

Danckwerts Benchmark

This model compares the solution to the model equations of a tubular reactor using Danckwerts inlet and outlet conditions. A second almost identical model is defined with extra inlet and outlet sections where no reactions occur. The concentration at the beginning of the inlet section is ... Read More

Four-Bar Mechanism with Assembly Defect

This is a benchmark model for flexible multibody dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of a planar four-bar mechanism when one of the joints has a defect. The out-of-plane motion in the mechanism, caused by the defect in the joint, is compared with the results from the ... Read More

Transient Negative Mobility and Negative Differential Conductivity in Xenon

This tutorial model presents a study showing the transient negative mobility and the negative differential conductivity effects in xenon. The stationary and time dependent Boltzmann equation in the two-term approximation is used to compute the electron energy distribution function. ... Read More

Shift into gear

This model demonstrates the ability to simulate Multibody Dynamics in COMSOL. It comprises a multilink mechanism that is used in an antique automobile as a gearshift lever. It was created out of curiosity to find out how large forces are on the individual components. The model uses ... Read More

Pacemaker Electrode

This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in Pro/ENGINEER by using the LiveLink interface. Read More

Ball Partition Add-In

This add-in makes the editing of imported meshes much more convenient. It often happens when working with mesh import that a small defect needs to be deleted. There are two options to partition a surface mesh: Partition with Ball or Create Edges. Both operations can be time consuming ... Read More

Optimization of a Crane Link Mechanism

In complex mechanical systems, it can be challenging to find an optimal (or even good enough) solution only through engineering insight or trial-and-error procedures. Using mathematical optimization methods can then be an efficient path to a better design. In this example, a link ... Read More

Pacemaker Electrode

This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in SolidWorks by using the LiveLink interface. Read More

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from Pro/ENGINEER via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz. Read More
