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.

Heat Sink

This model is intended as a first introduction to simulations of fluid flow and conjugate heat transfer. It shows you how to: Draw an air box around a device in order to model convective cooling in this box, set a total heat flux on a boundary using automatic area computation, and ... Read More

Heat Transfer by Free Convection

This example describes an array of heating tubes submerged in a vessel with fluid flow entering at the bottom. This is a multiphysics model because it involves fluid dynamics coupled with heat transfer. The pressure and the velocity field are the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, ... Read More

E-Core Transformer

This is the transient model of a single phase E-core transformer using a Multi-Turn Coil Domain. The model includes the effect of a nonlinear B-H curve in the core and shows how to connect the transformer model to the external circuits using Electric Circuit interface. The simulation is ...

Evaporative Cooling of Water

This tutorial shows how to couple three physics interfaces to model evaporative cooling. The effects that need to be taken into account are heat transfer, transport of water vapor, and fluid flow. The Wet Surface feature is used to implement the source term for the water vapor and to ... Read More

Anisotropic Heat Transfer Through Woven Carbon Fibers

This model and presentation show how to model anisotropic properties of fibers in a heat transfer simulation. Because the fibers' orientation is not easy to define explicitly, the curvilinear coordinate interface is used to define the fiber orientation. The fibers have high thermal ... Read More

Microwave Oven

This is a model of the heating process in a microwave oven. The distributed heat source is computed in a stationary, frequency-domain electromagnetic analysis. This is followed by a transient heat transfer simulation showing how the heat redistributes in the food. Read More

Fluid-Structure Interaction

This model demonstrates how to set up a fluid-structure interaction problem in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how fluid flow can deform solid structures and how to solve for the flow in a continuously deforming geometry. The Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) multiphysics interface ...

Permanent Magnet

As an example of a magnetostatic problem, consider how to model a horseshoe-shaped permanent magnet. One way is to treat the entire magnet as a ferromagnetic material, where the two end sections are defined as being pre-magnetized in different and opposite directions. Read More

Two-Phase Flow with Fluid-Structure Interaction

The following example demonstrates techniques for modeling a fluid-structure interaction containing two fluid phases in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how a heavier fluid can induce movement in an obstacle using the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) technique along with the Two ... Read More

Computing Capacitance

A capacitor, in its simplest form, is a two terminal electrical device that stores electric energy when a voltage difference is applied across the terminals. The stored electric energy is proportional to the applied voltage squared and is quantified by the capacitance of the device. This ... Read More
