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.
This model performs a topological optimization for a Tesla microvalve. A Tesla microvalve inhibits backwards flow using friction forces rather than moving parts. The design can be optimized by distributing a specific amount of material within the modeling domain. The goal is to maximize ... Read More
This model presents a time-dependent study of a microchannel that is used to infuse and flush another piece of equipment with a fluid. The pressure at the five inlets varies sinusoidally as functions of time, and the velocity vector at the outlet is studied. The model uses an ... Read More
Microlaboratories for biochemical applications often require rapid mixing of different fluid streams. At the microscale, flow is usually highly ordered laminar flow, and the lack of turbulence makes diffusion the primary mechanism for mixing. While diffusional mixing of small ... Read More
At the macroscopic level, systems usually mix fluids using mechanical actuators or turbulent 3D flow. At the microscale level, however, neither of these approaches is practical or even possible. This model demonstrates the mixing of fluids using laminar-layered flow in a MEMS mixer. ... Read More
The present model demonstrates diffusion-controlled electrodeposition of copper on microstructured band electrode arrays (MEA). Mass transport by Fickian diffusion of copper ions is solved using the Transport of Diluted Species interface. Dendrite formation as a consequence of diffusion ... Read More
The contact angle of a two-fluid interface with a solid surface is determined by the balance of the forces at the contact point. In electrowetting the balance of forces at the contact point is modified by the application of a voltage between a conducting fluid and the solid surface. In ... Read More
This application presents an example of pressure driven flow and electrophoresis in a 3D micro channel system. Researchers often use a device similar to the one in this model as an electrokinetic sample injector in biochips to obtain well-defined sample volumes of dissociated acids and ... Read More
The topology optimized Tesla microvalve is used as inspiration for a initial geometry. Second order Bernstein polynomials are used to perturb the shape of the geometry. The resulting design is remeshed in the deformed configuration and the performance is investigated for a range of ... Read More
This model studies the dispersion of neutral species band through curved microchannel in an Electroosmotic flow (EOF) . Using Optimization module, geometric optimization is carried out to minimize the curve-induced dispersion.The central idea is to parametrically represent the geometry ... Read More
A lab-on-a-chip platform can be realized on a rotating disc by designing channels and other features to use the Coriolis or centrifugal forces to manipulate the flow. These forces are controlled by changing the angular velocity of the disc, so the platform is programmed by using a ... Read More
