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.


Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Network of Blood Vessels

This model refers to a portion of the vascular system of a young child - the upper part of the aorta artery. The blood vessels are embedded in a biological tissue (the cardiac muscle) and, during the flow of blood, pressure is applied to the internal surfaces producing deformation of the ... Read More

Thin-Film Resistance

In modeling of transport by diffusion or conduction in thin layers, we often encounter large differences in dimensions of the different domains in a model. If the modeled structure is a so-called sandwich structure, we can replace the thinnest geometrical layers with a thin layer ... Read More

Free Surfaces with Level Set, Phase Field, and Moving Mesh: A Comparison

We present the results from a comparison of the level set, phase field, and moving mesh methods for modeling free liquid surfaces in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The comparison is carried out using an example problem. The example studies the formation of surface waves caused by ... Read More

Bracket — Transient Analysis

The bracket models are used as an introduction to structural mechanics modeling with the Structural Mechanics Module. The following features are introduced: * The fundamentals: static linear analysis * Parametric study * Including initial strain * Modeling thermal expansion * Adding a ... Read More

Evaporative Cooling of Water

This tutorial shows how to couple three physics interfaces to model evaporative cooling. The effects that need to be taken into account are heat transfer, transport of water vapor, and fluid flow. The Wet Surface feature is used to implement the source term for the water vapor and to ... Read More

Optical Scattering Off of a Gold Nanosphere

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 ... Read More

Loudspeaker Driver — Transient Analysis

In this model, a full transient analysis of a loudspeaker driver is performed, which allow the modeling of nonlinear effects. It extends the linear frequency domain analysis done in the Loudspeaker Driver tutorial model. The analysis accounts for nonlinear behavior of the soft iron in ... Read More

Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger

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 ... Read More

Axisymmetric Transient Heat Transfer

This is a benchmark model for an axisymmetric transient thermal analysis. The temperature on the boundaries changes from 0 degrees C to 1000 degrees C at the start of the simulation. The temperature at 190 s from the anlysis is compared with a NAFEMS benchmark solution. Read More

Permanent Magnet Motor in 3D

Permanent magnet (PM) motors are used in many high-end applications, such as in electric and hybrid vehicles. An important design limitation is that the magnets are sensitive to high temperatures, which can occur through heat losses caused by currents, particularly eddy currents. In ... Read More
