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.


Effect of Roller Bearing Clearance on Nonsynchronous Vibration of a Rotor

Bearing clearances should be kept minimum to avoid non-synchronous vibration of a rotor. However, a tight clearance reduces the durability of the bearing. This example illustrates modeling of the vibration induced by nonlinear contact for different radial clearances. It is shown that ... Read More

Andrew's Squeezing Mechanism

This is a benchmark model for rigid body dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of "Andrew’s squeezing mechanism", which is force driven and requires a very small time scale. Various angles in the mechanism are compared with the results from the reference. Read More

Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Application

This example shows how to create a time-limited and hardware-locked application. It is associated with the section "Time-Limited and Hardware-Locked Applications" in the _[Application Programming Guide](/documentation/ApplicationProgrammingGuide.pdf)_ (page 196). Read More

Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from Creo Parametric via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz. Read More
