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.

Modeling the Behavior of a Thermostat

This example exemplifies how to model applications using the *Events* Interface where a thermostat is sumlated. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Implementing a Thermostat with the Events Interface]( ... Read More

Electrical Heating in a Busbar Assembly

This tutorial analyzes the resistive heating (Joule heating) of a busbar assembly designed to conduct a direct current from a current source to the anode in an electrolysis process. Read More

Beam Subjected to Traveling Load

As an example of how to build an app using the Application Builder, this application simulates the transient response of a beam, or bridge, that is placed on several equidistant supports and is subjected to a traveling load. The purpose of the Beam Subjected to Traveling Load app is to ... Read More

Modeling Irregular Shapes by Using Interpolation and Image Data

This file shows how to create a surface of an irregular shape based on text, image, or elevation data. This approach is best suited for data where the height (or elevation) is a function of _x_- and _y_-coordinates. The data is of the Matterhorn, a European mountain located in the ... Read More

Magnetic Gear in 2D

This model presents the transient modeling of a coaxial magnetic bearing using permanent magnets. The coaxial magnetic bearing is advantageous over the conventional mechanical gear mainly because of minimum noise, maintenance free operation, overload protection and physical isolation ... Read More

Shock Tube

The compressible Euler equations are implemented in the Wave Form PDE interface with nodal discontinuous Lagrange shape functions to compute the flow in a shock tube. The purpose of this application is to simulate the flow in the tube and estimate the distributions of pressure, density, ... Read More

Cavity Eigenfrequency Modeling Using the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes Interface

This model demonstrates three different ways to find the eigenfrequencies of a rectangular metallic cavity. The first method uses an eigenfrequency study step together with the Electromagnetic Waves, Beam Envelopes interface. Here, it is important to define a wave vector for the physics ... Read More

Modifying Imported CAD Geometry with the Deformed Geometry Interface

When you are working with foreign CAD or ECAD data, such as files in the STEP, GDS, or IGES file formats, or any of the other supported formats, you may think that you need to re-import a new CAD file and start your modeling over from scratch if you want to study a change in size or ... Read More

Acoustic-Structure Interaction and Air Flow in Violins

These models are featured in the blog post [Analyze Violin Tone and Volume with Multiphysics Modeling]( One applies acoustic-structure interaction to study how the air mode resonance is affected by ... Read More

Helical Static Mixer

Helical static mixers are often used to mix monomers and initiators that then react during a polymerization process. The purpose of the Helical Static Mixer application is to demonstrate this mixing process as well as the use of parts and parameterized geometries when building apps. The ... Read More
