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.

Thermally Loaded Beam

In this example you will build and solve a 3D beam model using the 3D Beam interface. This model shows how a thermally induced deformation of a beam is modeled. Temperature differences are applied across the top and bottom surfaces as well as the left and right surfaces of the beam. ... Read More

Ear-Canal Simulator Optimization

In this tutorial the geometry of an occluded ear-canal simulator is optimized to match the acoustic response of a given ear. The target data in this model stems from a simulation of an ear canal, but it can also be based on measurements, or a response specified by a standard. Read More

Removing Details in Model Geometries

This model illustrates how to use the Remove Details operation to automatically find and remove small details from a model geometry. Read More

Parameter Estimation of Viscoplastic Polymers

This tutorial model demonstrates how to estimate the material parameters of a viscoplastic Bergstrom–Boyce model suitable for nonequilibrium modeling of rubber-like materials. The data used for parameter estimation consists of cyclic uniaxial tension and compression tests at two ... Read More

Ladder Frame

This example illustrates how to perform eigenfrequency and static analyses of a ladder frame structure for a light truck. Important modeling strategies are described. For example, how to convert a solid geometry to a shell model, how to make different types of connections, and how to ... Read More

Radial Basis Function Interpolation

This demonstration app will fit a surface through a set of points using radial basis functions and will write out a COMSOL-format file of a smooth NURBS surface that passes through all of the points. The function describing the surface can also be written to a text file. The point data ... Read More

Biosensor Designer for Use with COMSOL Client for Android™

COMSOL Client for Android™ is an app available in the Google Play™ store for users of COMSOL Server™. It includes features and functionality designed specifically for use with tablets and other mobile devices. The Biosensor Designer comes in two different layouts: ... Read More

Buckling of HDPE Liners

In this example, the Bergstrom–Bischoff material model is used to model the temperature and strain dependent behavior of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) used, for example, to make liners for damaged pipes in oil and gas applications, or to make type IV hydrogen storage vessels for fuel ...

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Wilkinson Power Divider

Some conventional three-port power dividers are resistive power dividers and T-junction power dividers. Such dividers are either lossy or not matched to the system reference impedance at all ports. In addition, isolation between two coupled ports is not guaranteed. The Wilkinson power ... Read More

Transient Negative Mobility and Negative Differential Conductivity Effects 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
