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.

Thin gap with radiation

When radiation occurs across a very narrow gap this is often well-approximated as radiation between infinite parallel plates. This model considers three aluminum plates separated by narrow air gaps. The model compares the classical approach, based on the Surface-to-Surface Radiation ... Read More

Lumped Composite Thermal Barrier

This example shows how to set up multiple sandwiched thin layers with different thermal conductivities in two different ways. First, the composite is modeled as a 3D object. In the second approach, the thin domains are modeled with thermal resistors in the Lumped Thermal System ... Read More

Heat and Moisture Transport with Mold Growth Prediction

This tutorial demonstrates how to use the temperature and relative humidity computed by the simulation of heat and moisture transport in an insulated roof as inputs for a mold prediction model. The VTT model for mold growth and decline prediction computes a mold index M by solving an ... Read More

HAMSTAD Benchmark 1: Heat and Moisture Transport in an Insulated Roof

This tutorial shows how to simulate coupled heat and moisture transport in an insulated roof structure, made of a load bearing and an insulation layer. The thermal insulation is facing the interior and there is a moisture barrier facing the exterior. The load bearing is capillary active ... Read More

How to Improve the Performance of View Factor Computation for Surface-to-Surface Radiation

This model shows how to use the features of the Heat Transfer Module to reduce the computation time and memory usage in view factor computations. Illustrative results of speedup and memory usage reduction are given on a benchmark model. The solution is not computed, only the view ... Read More


Freeze-drying, or lyophilization, is a process for drying heat-sensitive substances such as foods, blood plasma, and antibiotics. The wet substance is frozen and then, through sublimation, ice (or some other frozen solvent) is removed in the presence of a high vacuum. This example ... Read More

Transient Conduction in a Wall, Lumped Thermal System

This model performs a transient analysis of the temperature through a house wall. The wall is formed of different layers corresponding to the structure, insulation and plaster. On the exterior and the interior, the wall is exposed to thermal radiation and convective cooling. The results ... Read More
