Heat Sink

This model is intended as a first introduction to simulations of fluid flow and conjugate heat transfer. It shows you how to: Draw an air box around a device in order to model convective cooling in this box, set a total heat flux on a boundary using automatic area computation, and display results in an efficient way using selections in data sets.

The following features are introduced: - The Fundamentals: A Static Linear Analysis - Parametric study - Including Initial Strain - Modeling Thermal Expansion - Adding Rigid Connector - Adding Spring Conditions - Modeling with the Shell Physics Interface - Transient Analysis - ...

Flow Past a Cylinder

The following model examines unsteady, incompressible flow past a long cylinder placed in a channel at right angle to the oncoming fluid. The cylinder is offset somewhat from the center of the flow to make the steady-state symmetrical flow unstable. The simulation time necessary for a periodic flow pattern to appear is difficult to predict. A key predictor is the Reynolds number, which is ...

Permanent Magnet

As an example of a magnetostatic problem, consider how to model a horseshoe-shaped permanent magnet. One way is to treat the entire magnet as a ferromagnetic material, where the two end sections are defined as being pre-magnetized in different and opposite directions. An alternative is to set surface currents on the pre-magnetized parts. In this tutorial model, both of the alternatives are ...

Fluid-Structure Interaction

This model demonstrates how to set up a fluid-structure interaction problem in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how fluid flow can deform solid structures and how to solve for the flow in a continuously deforming geometry. The Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) multiphysics interface combines fluid flow with solid mechanics to capture the interaction between the fluid and the solid structure. ...

Parameterized Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger Geometry

Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are commonly used in oil refineries and other large chemical processes. In this model, two separated fluids at different temperatures flow through the heat exchanger, one through the tubes (tube side) and the other through the shell around the tubes (shell side). Several design parameters and operating conditions influence the optimal performance of a shell and tube ...

Optical Scattering by Gold Nanospheres

This model demonstrates the simulation of the scattering of a plane wave of light by a gold nanosphere. The scattering is computed for the optical frequency range over which gold can be modeled as a material with negative complex-valued permittivity. The far-field pattern and losses are computed.

Two-port Piezoelectric SAW Device

This tutorial shows how to model surface acoustic waves in time domain. The 3D modeling geometry represents a 128 degree YX-cut lithium niobate substrate. The SAW device has two ports. The metallic electrodes are modeled as perfect conductors using boundary conditions. The geometric dimensions such as size of substrate, the gap between the ports and the number of inter-digitated electrodes (IDTs) ...

Droplet Breakup in a T-junction

Emulsions consist of small liquid droplets immersed in an immiscible liquid and widely occur in the production of food, cosmetics, fine chemicals, and pharmaceutical products. The quality of the product is typically dependent on the size of the droplets. Simulating these processes can help in optimizing these droplets as well as other process variables. This model studies the volume mass ...

Magnetic Field of a Helmholtz Coil

A Helmholtz coil is a parallel pair of identical circular coils spaced one radius apart and wound so that the current flows through both coils in the same direction. This winding results in a uniform magnetic field between the coils with the primary component parallel to the axes of the two coils. Applications of Helmholtz coils range from canceling the earth’s magnetic field to generating ...
