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.

Subsurface Flow Modulex

Variably Saturated Flow

This example utilizes the Richards’ Equation interface to assess how well geophysical irrigation sensors see the true level of fluid saturation in variably saturated soils. The challenge to characterizing fluid movement in variably saturated porous media lies primarily in the need to ... Read More

Aquifer Water Table Calculation

This model demonstrates the application of COMSOL Multiphysics to a benchmark case of steady-state subsurface fluid flow and transient solute transport along a vertical cross section in an unconfined aquifer. Because of profound geologic heterogeneity, the model must estimate solute ... Read More

Failure of a Multilateral Well

Multilateral wells—those with multiple legs that branch off from a single well—can produce oil efficiently because the legs can tap multiple productive zones and navigate around impermeable ones. Unfortunately, drilling engineers must often mechanically stabilize multilateral wells with ... Read More

Discrete Fracture

This example models free flow through a fracture in a block of porous media, where flow in the fracture is much faster than in the matrix block. The Darcy's law physics interface is used to model the flow in the porous block The fracture flow is modeled by adding the Fracture Flow ... Read More

Terzaghi Compaction

Fluids that move through pore spaces in an aquifer or reservoir can shield the porous medium from stress because they bear part of the load from, for instance, overlying rocks, sediments, fluids, and buildings. Withdrawing fluids from the pore space increases the stress the solids bear, ... Read More

Aquifer Characterization

This model uses the Optimization interface to solve the inverse problem for determining the spatially variable hydraulic conductivity on a discretized quadratic grid from a number of aquifer pump tests. Because the number of observations is smaller than the number of unknown parameters, ... Read More

Dam Breaking on a Column, Shallow Water Equations

This example uses the Shallow Water equations to model the impact of a water wave on a column. A body of water with a height of 0.3 meters is initially contained behind a gate. At the start of the simulation, the gate is suddenly released and the body of water forms a wave moving toward ... Read More

Tsunami Runup onto a Complex 3D Beach, Monai Valley

This example is an established benchmark case for the shallow water equations that models a 1/400 scaled laboratory experiment of the tsunami runup in Monai Valley in Japan. The experiment was made at the Central Research Institute for Electric Power Industry (CRIEIPI) in Abiko, Japan, ... Read More

Glacier Flow

This example shows how to set up a glacier flow model in principle, containing several important aspects of glacier modeling: The creation of the 2D geometry, the modeling of non-Newtonian flow, and the implementation of basal sliding. In this example, two different glacier types, a cold ... Read More

Phase Change in a Semi-Infinite Soil Column

In this example, a heat-conduction problem with phase change in a porous material is solved, and the results are compared with the analytical solution, also known as the Lunardini solution. This is the first test case from the InterFrost project. ... Read More
