Model Gallery

The Model Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics model files from a wide variety of application areas including the electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical disciplines. You can download ready-to-use models and step-by-step instructions for building the model, and use these as a starting point for your own modeling work. Use the Quick Search to find models relevant to your area of expertise, and login or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license to download the model files.

Split-Recombine Mixer Benchmark

This example models a split and recombine mixer channel in which a tracer fluid is introduced and mixed by multi-lamination. Diffusion is removed from the model using an extremely low diffusion coefficient so that any numerical diffusion can be studied in the lamination interfaces. The results compare well with Glatzel et al (Ref 1.) in both the lamination patterns and total pressure drop ...

Molecular Flow in an RF Coupler

This model computes the transmission probability through an RF coupler using both the angular coefficient method available in the Free Molecular Flow interface and a Monte Carlo method using the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface. The computed transmission probability determined by the two methods is in excellent agreement with less than a 1% difference. This model requires the Particle ...

Reactive Muffler

This is a benchmarking model to compare the abilities of COMSOL to an analytical solution. The model examines the sound-transmission properties of an idealized reactive muffler with infinitely long inlet and outlet pipes and one expansion chamber. The infinitely long inlet and outlets are simulated through a reflection-free source at the inlet pipe and a reflection-free end of the outlet pipe, ...

Circular Waveguide Iris Bandpass Filter

A circular waveguide filter is designed using a 2D axisymmetric model. Six annular rings added to the waveguide form circular cavities connected in series, and each cavity cutoff frequency is close to the center frequency of the filter. The simulated S-parameters show a bandpass frequency response.

Optimization of a Tuning Fork, Modeled with LiveLink for SolidWorks

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from SolidWorks via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz.

The Black-Scholes Equation

The Black-Scholes equation, computes the value u of a European stock option. Black-Scholes derived an analytical expression for the solution to this problem. However, the formula works only for certain cases; for instance, you cannot employ it when sigma and r are functions of x and t. Here, sigma denotes the volatility, r the continuous compounding rate of interest, and x the underlying asset ...

Reaction Chain

This model describes the simultaneous transport of three solutes in a chain reaction within a variably saturated flow field. Involved are advection, dispersion, sorption, biodegradation, decay, and volatilization. The parent solute decays to a daughter product, which generates another tracked daughter. Built on the flow field described in Sorbing Solute, the transport scenario described here ...

Electric Heating in a Busbar, Modeled with LiveLink for Solid Edge

This tutorial model of the Joule heating effect in a busbar demonstrates how to synchronize an assembly between Solid Edge and COMSOL, how to modify the geometry from COMSOL, and how to run a geometric parametric sweep.

Caughey-Thomas Mobility in a Semiconductor

With an increase in the parallel component of the applied field, carriers can gain energies above the ambient thermal energy and be able to transfer energy gained by the field to the lattice by optical phonon emission. The latter effect leads to a saturation of the carriers mobility. The Caughey Thomas mobility model adds high field velocity scattering to an existing mobility model (or to a ...

1D Step Bearing

This benchmark model computes the load-carrying capacity of a one dimensional hydrodynamic step bearing. The results are compared with analytic expressions obtained by solving the Reynolds equations directly in this simple case.
