Modeling a Sphere Falling on a Water Surface
Application ID: 12655
This model shows modeling of a sphere falling on a water surface. Specifically, it models the oscillating motion of a buoyant sphere as it falls through air and interacts with the air-water interface to finally float on water.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- CFD Module, or Heat Transfer Module and
- CFD Module, or Microfluidics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
