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.
In this example, learn how to model two rotors connected by a spline coupling. The first rotor is a fixed cantilevered rotor and the second rotor is supported. The model assumes that only translational motion is coupled between the rotors through the coupling, while the rotations of both ... Read More
Bearing clearances should be kept minimum to avoid non-synchronous vibration of a rotor. However, a tight clearance reduces the durability of the bearing. This example illustrates modeling of the vibration induced by nonlinear contact for different radial clearances. It is shown that ... Read More
In this tutorial model, a step thrust bearing is shape optimized to maximize the bearing capacity. A step thrust bearing consists of a stepped bearing surface on which the end of the shaft rotates. The entire assembly is submerged in a lubricant. The shaft collar is assumed to be ... Read More
The fluid flow in seals causes a strong restoring radial force, opposing the shaft motion. Also, there is a cross coupled force due to the axial variation of the circumferential flow. The first type of force always has a stabilizing effect on the rotor, whereas the second one in certain ... Read More
