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.

Nonlinear Magnetostrictive Transducer

Magnetostrictive transduction is used in sonars, acoustic devices, active vibration, and position control and fuel injection systems. The transducer has a steel housing enclosing a drive coil. A magnetostrictive material is placed in the core, which works as an actuator when a magnetic ... Read More

Piezoacoustic Transducer

A piezoelectric transducer can be used either to transform an electric current to an acoustic pressure field or, the opposite, to produce an electric current from an acoustic field. These devices are generally useful for applications that require the generation of sound in air and ... Read More

Piezoelectric Shear-Actuated Beam

The model performs a static analysis on a piezoelectric actuator based on the movement of a cantilever beam, using the Piezoelectric Devices predefined multiphysics interface. Inspired by work done by V. Piefort and A. Benjeddou, it models a sandwich beam using the shear mode of the ... Read More

Mixed-Mode Debonding of a Laminated Composite

Interfacial failure by delamination or debonding can be simulated with a Cohesive Zone Model (CZM). This example shows the implementation of a CZM with a bilinear traction-separation law. It is used to predict the mixed-mode softening onset and delamination propagation in a composite ... Read More

Various Analyses of an Elbow Bracket

The component depicted in this model is part of a support mechanism and is subjected to various mechanical loads. This tutorial model takes you through the steps to carry out a detailed analysis of the part using the Structural Mechanics Module. In the various parts of the example you ... Read More

Thermal Actuator

This tutorial model of a two-hot-arm thermal actuator couples three different physics phenomena: electric current conduction, heat conduction with heat generation, and structural stresses and strains due to thermal expansion. The model exists in three versions: * **Joule Heating of a ... Read More

Vibrating Membrane

The natural frequencies of a prestressed circular membrane are computed and compared with analytical solutions. Two method are used: In the first study the prestress is given explicitly, while in the second study an external load provides the prestress. Read More

Cylinder Roller Contact

Consider an infinitely long steel cylinder resting on a flat aluminum foundation, where both structures are elastic. The cylinder is subjected to a point load along its top. The objective of this study is to find the contact pressure distribution and the length of contact between the ... Read More

Stress-Optical Effects in a Photonic Waveguide

Planar photonic waveguides in silica (SiO2) have great potential for use in wavelength routing applications. The major problem with this type of waveguide is birefringence. Anisotropic refractive indices result in fundamental mode splitting and pulse broadening. The goal is to minimize ... Read More

Single Edge Crack

This model deals with the stability of a plate with an edge crack that is subjected to a tensile load. To analyze the stability of exciting cracks, fracture mechanics can be utilized. A commonly used parameter in fracture mechanics, used to predict if a specific crack will cause the ... Read More
