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.

Busbar with Surface-to-Surface Radiation

This model computes an electromagnetic-heated busbar with surface-to-surface radiation and compares the results with the busbar model without radiation. The surface emissivity of copper is varied between 0.1 (blank material), 0.3 (partially oxidized), and 0.3 (heavily oxidized). A more ... Read More

Thermal Performances of Windows

During the design of a building, environmental issues have gained considerable influence in the entire project. One of the first concerns is to improve thermal performances. In this process, simulation software are key tools to model thermal losses and performances in the building. The ... Read More

LED Bulb Cooling

This model describes the three heat transfer modes: conduction, convection, and radiation, combined with nonisothermal flow in a realistic geometry representing a light bulb and the surrounding air. The LED chips dissipate heat. The model computes the equilibrium temperature induced by ... Read More

Thermal Curing Simulation

This example exemplifies how to model thermal curing using the base package of COMSOL Multiphysics. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Modeling the Thermal Curing Process]( ... Read More

Using Assembly Meshing for Conjugate Heat Transfer Modeling

You can use assembly meshing to reduce the number of mesh elements in your model, which is especially useful for conjugate heat transfer simulation in cases where the fluid domains can be handled with swept mesh. These models demonstrate how to use form assembly and discontinuous meshes ... Read More

Modeling of 3-omega Method with Frequency-Domain Analysis of Heat Transfer

This model shows how to define a frequency-domain analysis of heat transfer. The 3-omega method uses the Cahill's equation to approximate the thermal conductivity of a sample from the measured temperature of a metal strip placed on top of it and subject to oscillating heating. The 2D ... Read More

Thermal Bridges in Building Construction — 3D Structure Between Two Floors

This model studies the heat conduction in a building structure separating two floors from the external environment. Four materials with distinct thermal conductivities k compose the structure. The exterior and interior boundaries are facing environments respectively at 0°C and 20°C. The ... Read More

Temperature Field in a Cooling Flange

A cooling flange in a chemical process is used to cool the process fluid, which flows through the flange. The surrounding air cools the flange via natural convection. In the stationary model, the forced convection to the process fluid is modeled using a constant heat transfer ... Read More

Mixed Diffuse-Specular Radiation Benchmark

This model shows how to use the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface to simulate mixed diffuse-specular reflection between surfaces in an enclosure. This model is separated in two parts. The first part compares the heat fluxes computed by the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface ... Read More
