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.

Convective Cooling of a Busbar

This is a template MPH-file containing the physics interfaces and the parameterized geometry for the model Electrical Heating in a Busbar. Read More

Diffraction Patterns

This example resembles the well-known 2-slit interference experiment often demonstrated in schools with water waves or sound. This model mimics the plane-wave excitation with two thin waveguides leading to slits in a screen, and it computes the diffraction pattern on the screen’s other ... Read More

Modeling Vibration and Noise in a Gearbox

A gearbox is used to transfer power from an engine to its associated wheels or cogs, which can result in radiating noise to the surroundings. This is due to the transmission of undesired lateral and axial forces on the bearings and housing, while transmitting power from one shaft to the ... Read More

Vacuum Drying

Vacuum drying is a chemical process frequently used in the pharmaceutical and food industries to remove water or an organic solvent from a wet powder. When designing a vacuum drying system, engineers aim to minimize the drying time while maintaining high quality in the product. This ... Read More

Voltage Induced in a Coil by a Moving Magnet

A magnet moving axially through the center of a coil will induce a voltage across the coil terminals. One practical application of this is in shaker flashlights, where the flashlight is vigorously shaken back and forth, causing a magnet to move through a multi-turn coil, which provides ... Read More

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

Scatterer on Substrate

A plane TE-polarized electromagnetic wave is incident on a gold nanoparticle on a dielectric substrate. The absorption and scattering cross-sections of the particle are computed for a few different polar and azimuthal angles of incidence. The model first computes a background field from ... Read More

Red Blood Cell Separation

Dielectrophoresis (DEP) occurs when a force is exerted on a dielectric particle as it is subjected to a nonuniform electric field. DEP has many applications in the field of biomedical devices used for biosensors, diagnostics, particle manipulation and filtration (sorting), particle ... Read More

Evaporation in Porous Media with Large Evaporation Rate

Evaporation in porous media is an important process in the food and paper industries, among others. Many physical effects must be considered: fluid flow, heat transfer, and transport of participating fluids and gases. All of these effects are strongly coupled and predefined interfaces ...

Process Control Using a PID Controller

This model shows how a flow model can be coupled to a process control mechanism. Controlling application parameters according to other application parameters is important within process engineering. Most control mechanisms use the data at a wall or an outlet to control inlet ... Read More
