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.

Wetting and Drying Paths for Partially Saturated Soil with the Extended Barcelona Basic Model

Experiments on dry and wet soil samples are performed to understand their behavior under different loading conditions. In this example, the Extended Barcelona Basic (BBMx) soil model is used to simulate the wetting and drying paths in partially saturated soil samples under cyclic ... Read More

Fast Modeling of a Transmission Line Wilkinson Power Divider

Some conventional three-port power dividers are resistive power dividers and T-junction power dividers. Such dividers are either lossy or not matched to the system reference impedance at all ports. In addition, isolation between two coupled ports is not guaranteed. The Wilkinson power ... Read More

1D Plane Slider Bearing

This benchmark model computes the load-carrying capacity of a one dimensional hydrodynamic slider bearing. The results are compared with analytic expressions obtained by solving the Reynolds equations directly in this simple case. Read More

Creating a Phase Envelope with a Multicomponent Flash Calculation

This is a demonstration how to use the thermodynamics functionality in COMSOL to make flash calculations. * A flash calculation is an equilibrium calculation of a system where several species and phases are present at the same time. The system in this model is an azeotropic mixture ... Read More

Walking Instability in a Washing Machine

Walking instability, due to non-uniform distribution of clothes, is a common problem in lightweight portable washing machines. This problem is more severe in horizontal-axis washing machines, which are more popular because of their high efficiency in spite of high manufacturing cost. ... Read More

Frozen Inclusion new

This example is a benchmark problem for simulating phase change in porous media. It studies the melting process of an ice inclusion within porous media and therefore demonstrates how to couple Darcy's Law with the Heat Transfer in Porous Media interface including phase change. Read More

Quenching of a Steel Billet new

In this model, a steel billet is quenched in oil from an austenitic state. The austenite decomposes into a combination of ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite. Residual stresses and strains in the billet are computed. Read More

Immersion Ultrasonic Testing Setup

This tutorial showcases the principles of the immersion ultrasonic testing technique. A search unit placed in a water tank sends an ultrasonic pulse signal that scatters off a solid object. Part of the signal is reflected back to the search unit by the object and possible flaws in it. By ... Read More

Electrodeposition on a Resistive Patterned Wafer

This example models time-dependent copper deposition on a resistive wafer in a cupplater reactor. As the deposited layer builds up, the resistive losses of the deposited layer decreases. The benefit of using a current thief for a more uniform deposit is demonstrated. Read More

Pressurized Orthotropic Container

A thin-walled container made of rolled steel is subjected to an internal overpressure. As an effect of the manufacturing method, one of the three material principal directions—the out-of- plane direction— has a higher yield stress than the other two. Hill’s orthotropic plasticity is used ... Read More
