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.

Thermostat with a Reactionary Delay

This example shows how to model the behavior of a thermostat where a delay in its reaction has been implemented. A more detailed description of the phenomenon, and the modeling process, can be seen in the blog post "How to Implement a Delay in Your Thermostat Simulation". Read More

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

Maximizing the Buckling Load of a Diagonal Brace

Buckling is a common failure mode for slender structural components. This model shows how the buckling load of a diagonal brace can be maximized, while constraining the volume of the brace. Read More

Oscillations in Metabolic Reaction Networks

Oscillating chemical reactions were long thought to simply not exist in homogeneous solution, and even the poster child, the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction, met such an initial skepticism, that even though it was discovered in 1951, it took almost 20 years for it to gain widespread fame. ...

Truss Tower Buckling

Buckling analysis is the search for the critical compressive load beyond which structures become unstable. The Truss Tower Buckling analysis application simulates the buckling of a truss tower under vertical compressive loads to provide the critical compressive load. With the app, you ... Read More

Petzval Lens Geometric Modulation Transfer Function

This model and tutorial demonstrates the use of an Application Method to compute and plot the geometric Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) for the Petzval Lens. Read More

Diesel Particulate Filter Analysis Using an Acoustic Transfer Matrix

Diesel particulate filters (DPFs) are designed to remove and filter soot (diesel particles) from the exhaust of diesel engine vehicles. The filters in such systems are typically structured with long, air-filled channels surrounded by a porous medium that retains the soot. Although the ... Read More

Zero Pressure Gradient 2D Flat Plate

This model is a verification case to attest the behavior of turbulence models and wall functions in the boundary layer of a turbulent flow. The velocity and the temperature are compared to the theoretical curves in a wall-resolved and a wall-modeled approach using the Algebraic y+ ... Read More

Using Text Files to Automate Model Preprocessing

This example demonstrates how to set up text files to use when preprocessing models that contain hundreds of parts. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "Automate Model Preprocessing with the Application Builder". Read More

Thermal Connection, Shared Boundaries

This tutorial model demonstrates the use of the multiphysics coupling feature Thermal Connection, Layered Shell, Surfaces. In this model, three layered shells are connected to heat domains by interior and exterior boundaries. The results obtained with the Heat Transfer in Shells ... Read More
