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.

Generic 711 Coupler — An Occluded Ear-Canal Simulator

This is the model of an occluded ear canal simulator (a generic 711 coupler). Besides certain details the geometry corresponds to the Brüel & Kjær Ear Simulator Type 4157. The real life couplers are used for simulating the acoustics of a standardized human ear canal and can be used for ... Read More

COMSOL Multiphysics Mesh Import and Export Guide

In COMSOL Multiphysics, you can import mesh and interpolation data created by other software for use in your simulations. You can also export data created in COMSOL Multiphysics to use in other COMSOL models and applications as well as other software. This document and accompanying ... Read More

Noise Radiation by a Compound Gear Train

Predicting the noise radiation from a dynamic system gives designers insight into the behavior of moving mechanisms early in the design process. For example, consider a gearbox in which the change in the gear mesh stiffness causes vibrations. These vibrations are transmitted to the ... Read More

Flow Duct

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

Hollow Cylinder

Fluid acoustics coupled to structural objects, such as membranes or plates, represents an important application area in many engineering fields. Some examples are: * Loudspeakers * Acoustic sensors * Nondestructive impedance testing * Medical ultrasound diagnostics This model ... Read More

Acoustics of a Pipe System with 3D Bend and Junction

This tutorial shows how to model the propagation of acoustic waves in large pipe systems by coupling the *Pipe Acoustics* interface to the *Pressure Acoustics* interface. The tutorial is set up in both the time domain and the frequency domain. 1D pipe acoustics is used to model the ... Read More

Acoustic Cloaking

This example demonstrates how to use a background field in a sound scattering problem. The application is an acoustic invisibility cloak made of a metamaterial. Two different types of metamaterials are used, one using an anisotropic acoustic material with varying properties and one using ... Read More

Lumped Loudspeaker Driver Using a Lumped Mechanical System

Example of a moving-coil loudspeaker where lumped parameters represent the behavior of the electrical and mechanical components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented using the *Electric Circuit* interface. The ... Read More

Open Pipe

In this model, sound created by a vibrating piston radiates through a baffled pipe. The impedance is measured and then used in an impedance boundary condition that replaces the surrounding air domain. This technique can be employed to reduce solution time and memory usage for large ... Read More

Photoacoustic Resonator

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
