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.
In a lithium metal battery, lithium metal is deposited during charging on the negative electrode. Mass transport and ohmic effects in the electrolyte cause small protrusions on the metal surface to be subjected to accelerated growth during charging. In worst case scenarios, this leads to ...

This app can be used as a design tool to develop an optimized battery configuration for a specific application. The application computes the capacity, energy efficiency, heat generation, and capacity losses due to parasitic reactions of a battery for a specific load cycle. Various ... Read More
This application example is useful for investigation of the following: Voltage, polarization (voltage drop), internal resistance, state-of-charge (SOC), and rate capability, in lithium-ion batteries under isothermal conditions. Some of the listed properties play an important role in ... Read More
Lithium-ion batteries can have multiple active materials in both the positive and negative electrodes. For example, the positive electrode can have a mix of active materials such as transition metal oxides, layered metal oxides, olivines etc. These materials can have different design ... Read More
This model describes the behavior of a lithium-ion battery unit cell modeled using an idealized three-dimensional geometry. The geometry mimics the structural details in the porous electrodes. Such models are referred to as heterogeneous models. The modeling approach for heterogeneous ... Read More
This example demonstrates the Lithium-Ion Battery, Single-Ion Conductor interface for studying the discharge of a lithium-ion battery with solid electrolyte. The geometry is in one dimension and the model is isothermal. The behavior at various discharge currents and solid electrolyte ... Read More
Due to the large differences in length scales in a lithium-ion battery, with the thickness of the different layers typically being several orders of magnitude smaller than the extension in the sheet direction, a lithium-ion battery is often well represented by a one-dimensional model. ... Read More
Deposition of metallic lithium on the negative electrode in preference to lithium intercalation is known to be a capacity loss and safety concern for lithium-ion batteries. Harsh charge conditions such as high currents (fast charging) and/or low temperatures can lead to lithium plating. ... Read More
