Heat Sink

This model is intended as a first introduction to simulations of fluid flow and conjugate heat transfer. It shows you how to: Draw an air box around a device in order to model convective cooling in this box, set a total heat flux on a boundary using automatic area computation, and display results in an efficient way using selections in data sets.

The Magnetic Field from a Permanent Magnet

As an example of a magnetostatic problem, consider how to model a horseshoe-shaped permanent magnet. One way is to treat the entire magnet as a ferromagnetic material, where the two end sections are defined as being pre-magnetized in different and opposite directions. An alternative is to set surface currents on the pre-magnetized parts. In this tutorial model, both of the alternatives are ...

Single-turn and Multi-turn Coil Domains in 3D

This tutorial illustrates how to use the Single-Turn Coil Domain and Multi-Turn Coil Domain features for modeling 3D coils. Both DC and AC coil modeling strategies are discussed. A series of simple illustrative tutorials are used to show different possible ways of using the following features. 1. Single-turn coil domain a) Gap feed b) Boundary feed 2. Multi-turn coil domain a) Linear coil b) ...

Fluid-Structure Interaction

This model demonstrates how to set up a fluid-structure interaction problem in COMSOL Multiphysics. It illustrates how fluid flow can deform solid structures and how to solve for the flow in a continuously deforming geometry. The Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) multiphysics interface combines fluid flow with solid mechanics to capture the interaction between the fluid and the solid structure. ...

NOx Reduction in a Monolithic Reactor

This suite of examples illustrate the modeling of selective NO reduction, that occurs as flue gases pass through the channels of a monolithic reactor in the exhaust system of a motored vehicle. The simulations are aimed at finding the optimal dosing of NH3, the reactant that serves as reducing agent in the process. Three different analyses are performed: Kinetic analysis: The example takes a ...

Modeling of a 3D Inductor

Inductors are used in many applications for low pass filtering or for impedance matching of predominantly capacitive loads. They are used in a wide frequency range from near static up to several MHz. An inductor usually has a magnetic core to increase the inductance, while keeping its size small. The magnetic core also reduces the electromagnetic interference with other devices as the magnetic ...

Cooling of an Injection Mold

This model shows how you can use the Non-Isothermal Pipe Flow interface together with the Heat Transfer in Solids interface to model the cooling of a injection molded polyurethane part for a car steering wheel. The equations describing the cooling channels are fully coupled to the heat transfer equations of the mold and the polyurethane part.

Stress-Optical Effects with Generalized Plane Strain in a Photonic Waveguide

Planar photonic waveguides in silica (SiO2) have great potential for use in wavelength routing applications. The major problem with this type of waveguide is birefringence. Anisotropic refractive indices result in fundamental mode splitting and pulse broadening. The goal is to minimize birefringence effects by adapting materials and manufacturing processes. One source of birefringence is the use ...

Absorptive Muffler

The sound level from a car depends to a great extent of the quality of the muffler. Over the years, researchers in the car industry have struggled to produce mufflers that are efficient from both an acoustic and an environmental perspective. This model describes the pressure wave propagation in a muffler for an internal combustion engine. The model also shows how to analyze both inductive ...
