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.

Polymerization in a Semibatch Reactor

As reactant monomer converts into polymer chains, the density of the reacting mixture often changes notably. In this example you will look at how this effect impacts the total production of polymer in a process. The liquid phase polymerization takes place in a semibatch reactor, where two operating conditions are compared. In the first scenario, the feed of monomer to the reactor is turned off ...

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 ...

Isoelectric Separation

This modeling example applies the Transport of Diluted Species interface to model a separation process. A stream containing six different ionic species is divided into pure component streams by means of migrative transport in an electric field. Free flow electrophoresis can be used to separate macromolecules such as proteins, based on their mobility perpendicular to the flow of the carrier fluid. ...

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 ...

Space-Dependent HI Reactor

This model deals with a reacting system comprising of an equimolar mixture of hydrogen and iodine gas which is allowed to react and form HI. Composition and temperature are allowed to vary both in space and time. This means that you have to define material balances, energy balances, and transport properties in the Reaction Engineering interface. These balances and properties are exported to ...

Water Purification by Silver Complexation

Many industrial processes leave remainders of toxic dissolved metal ions in process flows. A common method for removing metal ions from water is complexation. This model example shows a purification reactor where silver ions are complexated to diamine-silver for removal. Ammonia (L) is added across a membrane in a tubular reactor in order to remove silver ions (M) from a water stream. A ...

Chlorine Scrubber

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 with Isothermal Cooling

This model uses the Transport of Diluted Species and Heat Transfer in Fluids interfaces to study an elementary, exothermic, irreversible 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. ...
