Design Sensitivities in a COMSOL Model

This example exemplifies how to compute the design sensitivities of your COMSOL Multiphysics® model. A more detailed description of the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Computing Design Sensitivities in COMSOL Multiphysics](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/computing-design-sensitivities-in-comsol-multiphysics/)".

Polarized Circular Ports

This model of a circular waveguide demonstrates how to use ports with numerical solution of the port modes. It illustrates how to align the polarization of degenerate port modes and in particular how to model and excite the TE11 mode of circular waveguides in 3D.

Small Signal Analysis of a MOSFET

This model shows how to compute the AC characteristics of a MOSFET. Both the output conductance and the transconductance are computed as a function of the drain current.

Beam Subjected to Traveling Load

As an example of how to build an app using the Application Builder, this application simulates the transient response of a beam, or bridge, that is placed on several equidistant supports and is subjected to a traveling load. The purpose of the Beam Subjected to Traveling Load app is to analyze the structural response of a bridge when vehicles pass over it. Many of the bridge's parameters can be ...

Surface Chemistry Tutorial Using the Plasma Module

Surface chemistry is often an overlooked aspect of reacting flow modeling. This tutorial model shows how surface reactions and species can be added to study processes like chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The tutorial then models silicon growth on a wafer. Initially, the example uses a global model to investigate a broad region of parameters with complex chemistry. Then, a space-dependent model ...

Atmospheric Corrosion

This model simulates atmospheric galvanic corrosion of an aluminum alloy in contact with steel. The electrolyte film thickness depends on the relative humidity of the surrounding air and the salt load density of NaCl crystals on the metal surface. Empirical expressions for the oxygen diffusivity and solubility are also included in the model in order to derive an expression for the limiting ...

Biomechanical Model of the Human Body in a Sitting Posture

The dynamic response of a human body in any vibration environment can be predicted using this biomechanical model. In the automobile industry for instance, this model can be used in ride quality simulation and designing vibration isolators such as seats. In this example, a biomechanical model of the human body is developed to evaluate the dynamic response to the vertical vibrations in a ...

Acoustics of Coupled Rooms Using the Acoustic Diffusion Equation

This verification model analyzes the acoustics of two coupled rooms using the *Acoustic Diffusion Equation* interface of the Acoustics Module. The results of the model agree with analytical results that are validated against measurements in a reference paper.

Disc Resonator Anchor Losses

This model shows how to compute the anchor loss limited quality factor of a diamond disc resonator. The resonator is anchored to the substrate by a polysilicon post and power is transmitted to the substrate through the post. A perfectly matched layer is used to represent the essentially infinite substrate. The model is based on a paper presented at the 2007 COMSOL conference in Grenoble: P. ...

Equivalent Properties of Periodic Microstructures

Periodic microstructures are frequently found in composite materials, such as carbon fibers and honeycomb structures. They can be represented by a unit cell repeated along three directions of propagation. To reduce computational costs, simulations may replace all of the microscopic details of a composite material with a homogeneous domain with equivalent properties. This app computes the ...
