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.

How to Export Images Automatically After Solving

This example demonstrates how to use a parameterized slice plot and animation functionality to export a sequence of images. In addition, the example shows how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations where the model is first solved and then the image ... 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

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

How to Improve the Performance of View Factor Computation for Surface-to-Surface Radiation

This model shows how to use the features of the Heat Transfer Module to reduce the computation time and memory usage in view factor computations. Illustrative results of speedup and memory usage reduction are given on a benchmark model. The solution is not computed, only the view ... Read More

Topology Optimization of a Torsion Sphere with Milling Constraints

Topology optimization is associated with extreme design freedom which can yield extreme performance. The designs can be easier to manufacture by using milling constraints, at some cost to the performance. This example considers the case of a torsion sphere which is known to feature a ... Read More

Set-Up Applications that Synchronize Geometry Using LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS

This example demonstrates an application that utilizes the LiveLink interface for SOLIDWORKS to synchronize the CAD design. Read More

Running the COMSOL® Software with Microsoft® Azure

This document explains how to install and run COMSOL Multiphysics® and COMSOL Server™ with Microsoft® Azure. This requires that you have first acquired a Floating Network License (FNL) or COMSOL Server License (CSL) from COMSOL. The license manager software can run ... Read More

Stress Analysis of a Pipe Fitting from a CAD File

This tutorial model shows the setup of a 2D axisymmetric stress analysis, through contact, of a 3D threaded pipe fitting. The example involves synchronizing the 3D CAD geometry and selections, which specify the faces in contact, with the 2D geometry in COMSOL. A cutting plane is defined ... Read More

Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Application

This example shows how to create a time-limited and hardware-locked application. It is associated with the section "Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Applications" in the Application Programming Guide 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 Inventor 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
