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.

Creating a Random Geometry

Say you would like to simulate a natural material or an arrangement of parts that have some known statistical distribution of dimensional variations. In such cases, you can create a random geometry based on these variations. This model file is an example that demonstrates how to ... Read More

Laser Heating of a Silicon Wafer with Ablation

When modeling a manufacturing process, such as the heating of an object, it is possible for irreversible damage to occur due to a change in temperature. This may even be a desired step in the process. With the *Previous Solution* operator, we can model such damage in COMSOL ... Read More

Swept Mesh of a Bracket Geometry

This tutorial demonstrates how to partition a 3D part to create a swept mesh. The example explores different strategies for partitioning the geometry, and demonstrates how to combine hexahedral and tetrahedral meshes. Read More

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. ... Read More

Transmission Line Parameter Calculator

Transmission line theory is a cornerstone in the teaching of RF and microwave engineering. Transmission lines are used to guide waves of electromagnetic fields at radio frequencies. They exist in a variety of forms, many of which are adapted for easy fabrication and employment in ... Read More

From Surface Mesh to Geometry: STL Import of a Vertebra

This tutorial demonstrates how to import and create a geometry from a surface mesh saved in the STL format. The instructions detail how to remove isolated faces from the imported STL mesh, how to use the geometry import parameters, and how to create volumes for simulation both on the ... Read More

Joule Heating of a Microactuator — Distributed Parameter Version

A model of a thermal microactuator requires the coupled simulation of electric current conduction with heat generation, heat conduction, and structural stresses and strains due to thermal expansion. The purpose of this model is to demonstrate how to access the cluster computing ... Read More

Stiffness Analysis of a Communication Mast's Diagonal Mounting

Communication masts usually have a framework with a bolted triangular lattice design. The diagonals of the framework are assembled from several parts and welded together. When operating under a given wind load at a specific location, the antenna’s total rotation angle should stay ... Read More

Quadrupole Lens

Just like optical lenses focus light, electric and magnetic lenses can be used for focusing beams of charged particles. This COMSOL Multiphysics model shows the path of B5+ ions passing through a focusing system of three magnetic quadrupoles. Each of the quadropoles focus the beam of ... Read More

Lid-Driven Cavity

This example demonstrates how to define the lid-driven cavity benchmark in the field of computational fluid dynamics. In the model setup, a 2D square cavity has a tangentially moving wall that induces a large vortex in the center of the cavity, and small vortices in the corners. The ... Read More
