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.

Connecting a 3D Electromagnetic Wave Model to an Electrical Circuit

A model built with the RF Module can be connected to an electrical circuit equivalent, if there is some structure outside of the model space that you wish to approximate as a circuit equivalent. In this model, the 3D model of a coaxial cable is connected to a voltage source, in series ... Read More

Notch Filter Using a Split Ring Resonator

A split ring resonator (SRR) has a band-stop frequency response that rejects a certain range of frequency. This type of SRR structure is popularly used as a resonator itself and can be combined periodically to build artificial meta-materials. In this model, a printed SRR on a ... Read More

MRI Birdcage Coil

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems generate a magnetic flux density (B-field) to create images. Providing a homogeneous field distribution within a birdcage coil is a key factor for improving the quality of the scanned data. A homogeneous magnetic field can be found through ... Read More

Finding the Impedance of a Coaxial Cable

The coaxial cable (coax) is one of the most ubiquitous transmission line structures. It is composed of a central circular conductor, surrounded by an annular dielectric, and shielded by an outer conductor. This model computes the electric and magnetic field distribution inside of the ... Read More

Signal Integrity and TDR Analysis of Adjacent Microstrip Lines

A signal integrity (SI) analysis gives an overview of the quality of an electrical signal transmitted through electrical circuits, such as high-speed interconnects, cables, and printed circuit boards. The quality of the received signal can be distorted by noise from outside the circuit, ... Read More

Three-Port Ferrite Circulator

A microwave circulator is a multiport device in which a wave incident on Port 1 is coupled only into Port 2; a wave incident on Port 2 is coupled only into Port 3; and so on. Circulators are used to isolate microwave components, for example, to couple a transmitter and a receiver to a ... Read More

Transient Modeling of a Coaxial Cable

Simulation of Maxwell’s equations in the time domain is useful if the objective of the analysis is to observe a transient phenomenon, to find the time it takes a signal to propagate, or if the materials being modeled are non-linear with respect to the electric or magnetic field strength. ...

Spiral Slot Antenna

A spiral slot antenna provides a conformal design and can be used for communication, sensing, tracking, positioning, and many applications in different microwave frequency bands due to its wide-band frequency response. This model shows how to build a spiral geometry using parametric ... Read More

Frequency Selective Surface Simulator

Frequency selective surfaces (FSS) are periodic structures that generate a bandpass or a bandstop frequency response. They are used to filter or block RF; microwave; or, in fact, any electromagnetic wave frequency. For example, you see these selective surfaces on the doors of microwave ... Read More

Anechoic Chamber Absorbing Electromagnetic Waves

An anechoic chamber is used to measure antenna characterization, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Within the chamber are absorbers that are configured with an array of pyramidal objects that steer the propagating incident field onto their ... Read More
