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.
The Magnus effect explains the curl that soccer players can give the ball, resulting in the enjoyable goals that we can see in every World Cup™. This model looks at the Magnus effect in the laminar and turbulent flow regimes for transient and stationary flows. It also discusses the simulation results and relates them to experimental measurements on soccer balls found in the literature.
This presentation and series of models show how to use the Deformed Mesh interfaces to model small and large translations and rotations of objects.
This is a model of the acoustics inside a sedan, that is inside a typical hard-top family car. The model sets up sources at loudspeaker locations as well as impedance conditions to model soft absorbing surfaces (seats and carpet). The model results in plots of the pressure, sound pressure level, and intensity inside the car. The frequency response at given points inside the cabin are also ...
This is a busbar configuration with an AC analysis. The configuration is similar to the introductory tutorial in the book Introduction to COMSOL Multiphysics. However, two conductors are added to represent a more realistic case of magnetic fields surrounding the busbar. The results include Lorentz forces, induced currents, magnetic flux, and temperature.
Partial differential equations (PDEs) constitute the mathematical foundation for describing the laws of nature. This presentation provides an introduction to customizing your simulations by developing models directly with PDEs. Learn how to add ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and algebraic equations to your model. Equation-based modeling is a powerful method eliminating the need for user ...
This model illustrates the working principle of an axial homopolar induction bearing. An electrically conducting rotor rotating in a magnetic field produced by a permanent magnets induces eddy currents on the conducting rotor. The eddy currents, in turn, produce a magnetic field that opposes the magnetic fields by the magnets and induces a force that opposes the motion of the rotor. The axial ...
This example exemplifies how to model the Beer-Lambert law using the core functionality of COMSOL Multiphysics. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Modeling Laser-Material Interactions with the Beer-Lambert Law](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/modeling-laser-material-interactions-with-the-beer-lambert-law/)".
This example exemplifies how to optimize the design of a capacitor through optimization. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Changing the Dimensions of a Model Using Shape Optimization](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/changing-the-dimensions-of-a-model-using-shape-optimization/)".
This model demonstrates the ability to simulate Multibody Dynamics in COMSOL. It comprises a multilink mechanism that is used in an antique automobile as a gearshift lever. It was created out of curiosity to find out how large forces are on the individual components. The model uses flexible parts, i.e. the Structural Mechanics Module was used along with the Multibody Dynamics Module.
This example exemplifies how you can export the data from your mesh and results to a text file. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Exporting Meshes and Solutions Using the Application Builder](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/exporting-meshes-and-solutions-using-the-application-builder/)".
