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.
This tutorial provides a step-by-step instruction to setup a fully-coupled 3D structural-acoustic interaction problem. Interaction between a vibrating spherical piezoelectric structure with the surrounding fluid media is considered. The piezoelectric material PZT-5H from the materials ... Read More
This is a model of a simple photoacoustic (or optoacoustic) resonator. A pulsating laser heats a gas causing expansion and contraction and thus creates pressure waves. Such devices are used as sensors for measuring material parameters of the gas inside the resonator. The resonance ... Read More
A Coriolis flowmeter, also known as a mass flowmeter or an inertial flowmeter, is used to measure the mass flow rate of a fluid traveling through it. It makes use of the fact that the fluid's inertia through an oscillating tube causes the tube to twist in proportion to the mass flow ... Read More
An ellipse with sound-hard walls has the interesting property that an acoustic signal emanating from one of the foci refocuses at the other focal point b/c seconds later, where b (in meters) is the major axis length and c (m/s) is the speed of sound. This model involves a Gaussian ... Read More
This tutorial model shows how a user-defined coordinate system can be used to create any type of directional polarization of a piezoelectric material. Results are shown for the case of radial polarization of a piezoelectric disk. The piezoelectric material is PZT-5H. The example shows a ... Read More
The modeling of aircraft-engine noise is a central problem in the field of computational aeroacoustics. The acoustic field in a model of an axially symmetric aero-engine duct, generated by a noise source at the boundary, is computed and visualized. Results are presented for situations ... Read More
Reflective mufflers are best suited for the low-frequency range where only plane waves can propagate in the system, while dissipative mufflers with fibers are efficient in the mid- to high-frequency range. Dissipative mufflers based on flow losses, on the other hand, also work at low ... Read More
This model utilizes the thermoviscous acoustic interface in a sub-model to obtain detailed results for the transfer impedance of a perforated plate (including the thermal and viscous losses). The impedance is in turn used as an internal impedance in a pressure acoustic model of a ... Read More
The problem of a plane wave scattering off a cylinder-shaped object suggests the use of the 2D axisymmetric formulation. This can save computation time and reduce the memory usage compared to the model in 3D space. This example demonstrates the use of the built-in plane wave expansion ... Read More
In this classical benchmark model, a spherical scatterer is placed in a plane wave background field. When the sphere is modeled as sound hard, the problem has an analytical solution. The model compares the results using the *Pressure Acoustics, Boundary Elements* interface with the ... Read More
