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.
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
Trusses are structural members that can only sustain axial forces, but no bending or torsion. In the following example you first build and solve a simple 2D truss model using the 2D Truss interface. Later on, you analyze a 3D variant of the same problem using the 3D Truss interface. This ... Read More
This model presents a way to compute projected area using the Surface-to-Surface Radiation interface of the Heat Transfer Module. By computing illuminated area from a set of directions on a discretized sphere, it is possible to interpolate the projected area onto any angle of incidence. ... Read More
Fluence rate is a key parameter for ultraviolet (UV) water purifier. It describes the amount of radiation that pathogens absorb and is then directly related to the disinfection level of the purifier. The aim of this example is to demonstrate the fluence rate calculation with the ... Read More
In this model, the transmitter (microstrip patch) and receiver (Yagi–Uda) antennas are modeled simultaneously in the FEM domain and are coupled with FEM–BEM coupling. The results are compared with the analytical Friis transmission formula. In detail, the emw and emw2 interfaces find out ... Read More
The mass of an aluminum beam is minimized subject to a displacement constraint and a distributed load. The problem is solved using topology optimization with milling constraints. Read More
This example exemplifies how to model the impedance of a waveguide of varying cross sectional area. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "Computing the Impedance of a Corrugated Waveguide". Read More
