Model Gallery

The Model Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics model files from a wide variety of application areas including the electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical disciplines. You can download ready-to-use models and step-by-step instructions for building the model, and use these as a starting point for your own modeling work. Use the Quick Search to find models relevant to your area of expertise, and login or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license to download the model files.

Buoyancy–driven μPCR for DNA Amplification

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is one of the most effective methods in molecular biology, medical diagnostics, and biochemical engineering in amplifying a specific sequence of DNA. There has been a great interest in developing portable PCR-based lab-on-a-chip systems for point-of-care applications and one strategy that seems very promising is natural convection-based PCR. This model studies ...

Variations in Density in Porous Media Flow

This example studies the steady flow of an ideal gas in porous media, where variations in gas density are taken into account through Equation-based Modeling. Darcy’s law describes the velocity vector in the porous structure and the conservation of mass is accounted for by the ideal gas law. The studied system is a packed bed reactor of the type used for example in small scale reforming ...

Ammonia Synthesis PFR

This example demonstrate the modeling of a plug flow reactor for the synthesis of ammonia in the Haber-Weiss process. The catalytic reactor in this process operates under non-isothermal conditions, where temperature and pressure varies substantially along the length of the reactor, in addition to the variation in composition.

Transport and Reaction in a Catalyst in 3D

Consider the study of a mass balance of a diluted species in air, for example, a pollutant in an exhaust stream. The model’s aim is to calculate the concentration profile of this species, which is decomposed by a catalyst present on the surface of a porous supporting structure. In a first step, you solve the velocity field for the solution assuming that the diluted pollutant has no influence ...

Ideal Tank Flow System - new

In the chemical and biochemical industries, for instance in fermentation processes, reactors having well-mixed conditions and liquid level control are common. This example shows how to use the Reaction Engineering interface to model an ideal reactor with feed inlet and outlet streams. The volume change is monitored as well. For a liquid phase system where the cross-sectional area of a reactor is ...

Chemical Reactions and Soot Build-up in a Diesel Filter - new

In this model, a filter system for a diesel engine is modeled, including where a soot layer builds up and is oxidized. The build-up of the layer is held in check by both catalytic and non-catalytic reactions, where carbon is oxidized to carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, which in turn passes through the membrane. A filter system's efficiency and durability is closely related to the manner in ...

Chlorine Scrubber - new

This example studies the kinetics of the neutralization of chlorine gas in water solution. The model assumes that the fluid volume is perfectly mixed and constant. This means that the chlorine has dissolved to an almost saturated state (1·10-2 mol/m3) and that the hydroxide has also mixed well throughout, as would be the case for a very small amount of fluid in a scrubber. The study allows ...

Tubular Reactor Jacket - new

This model uses the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module to study an elementary, exothermic, reversible reaction in a tubular reactor (liquid phase, laminar flow regime). To keep its temperature down, the reactor uses a cooling jacket with a constant coolant temperature. The steady-state behavior of the reactor is investigated. This model solves the example by S. Fogler in Elements of Chemical ...
