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.

Cascaded Rectangular Cavity Filter

A cascaded cavity filter provides much better bandpass filter performance compared to a single cavity. Out-of-band rejection improves dramatically using a cascaded design. This model uses three rectangular cavity filters coupled via slots. The calculated S-parameters show excellent out-of-band rejection.

Eigenmodes of a Two-Speaker System in a Living Room

The placement of furniture in a living room affects the acoustic characteristics of a room. This model returns the eigenfrequencies around 90 Hz and the response at any point in the living room for frequencies up to 500 Hz. It includes absorbing and damping characteristics from some of the furniture.

Heat-Sink Investigations using the Component Library

A common method for investigating a process or system is to first study the individual components in detail. You would then start by setting up detailed models for the various components and then merge them to describe the system as a whole. With COMSOL Multiphysics you can easily merge individual models to investigate how they interact as components in a system. This exercise illustrates ...

A Transport Problem

A transport problem, modeling stationary transport in one direction, with a discontinuous solution is solved to illustrate the effect of streamline diffusion. A pure stationary transport problems contains a convective term only. This means that oscillations and instabilities from the numerical method are some factors that need to be addressed. Streamline diffusion stabilizes oscillations ...

Simulation of a Microrobot, 2D version

In this example, one of the legs of a silicon micro robot is modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics. A technique based on polyimide V-groove joints is used to get each of the legs to move. The polyimide has a relatively high coefficient of thermal expansion, and this causes the leg to bend slightly when the polyimide is heated. In the COMSOL Multiphysics simulation, a heat transfer model is coupled ...

Groundwater Flow and Solute Transport

This model demonstrates the application of COMSOL Multiphysics to a benchmark case of steady-state subsurface fluid flow and transient solute transport along a vertical cross section in an unconfined aquifer. Because of profound geologic heterogeneity, the model must estimate solute transport subject to highly irregular flow conditions with strong anisotropic dispersion. Van der Heijde ...

Diverging Duct

When the diameter of a pipe suddenly increases, the area available for flow increases. Fluid with relatively high velocity will decelerate into a relatively slow moving fluid. Depending on the Reynolds number, this can cause turbulence and much of the excess in kinetic energy is converted into heat and therefore wasted. If the change of the cross-section is gradual, the kinetic energy can be ...

Molecular Flow Through an S-bend

This model computes the transmission probability through an s-bend geometry using both the angular coefficient method available in the Free Molecular Flow interface and a Monte Carlo method using the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface. The computed transmission probability by the two methods is in excellent agreement with less than a 1% difference. This model requires the Particle Tracing ...

Isospectral Drums

Striking a drum excites a spectrum of vibration modes that together make up the instrument’s characteristic sound or acoustic signal. These vibration modes correspond to the eigenmodes, or eigenfunctions, of the drum’s membrane. Thus you can study this problem by solving eigenvalue problems for stretched membranes. Two different geometric shapes are modeled, with all other parameters ...

Capacitance in a Microstrip

To illustrate how to calculate lumped parameters of capacitance, this model calculates such in a microstrip. The example shows the two different ways of calculating this: with a static analysis and with a time-harmonic analysis.
