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.

Vibration in a Washing Machine Assembly

Vibration and noise in washing machines, due to the non-uniform distribution of clothes in the barrel, is a common problem worth studying and optimizing for. This model simulates a multibody dynamics model of a horizontal-axis portable washing machine. An eigenfrequency analysis is performed to compute the natural frequencies and mode shapes of the entire assembly. A transient analysis is ...

Reactive Muffler

This is a benchmarking model to compare the abilities of COMSOL to an analytical solution. The model examines the sound-transmission properties of an idealized reactive muffler with infinitely long inlet and outlet pipes and one expansion chamber. The infinitely long inlet and outlets are simulated through a reflection-free source at the inlet pipe and a reflection-free end of the outlet pipe, ...

Distributed Bragg reflector

A distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) is a periodic structure formed from alternating dielectric layers that can be used to achieve nearly total reflection within a range of frequencies. In this model a Bragg reflector is modeled with a central wavelength of 550[nm] and stopband of 180[nm].

Simulation of an Electromagnetic Sounding Method for Oil Prospecting

The marine controlled source electromagnetics method (CSEM) for oil prospecting has emerged as a promising technique during recent years. This model demonstrates one variant of it. It uses a mobile horizontal 1 Hz electric dipole antenna that is towed 150 m above the sea floor. An array of sea floor receivers measure the electric field at various distances away from the antenna. When measuring ...

Modifying Imported CAD Geometry with the Deformed Geometry Interface

When you are working with foreign CAD or ECAD data, such as files in the STEP, GDS, or IGES file formats, or any of the other supported formats, you may think that you need to re-import a new CAD file and start your modeling over from scratch if you want to study a change in size or shape. But, in fact, you can modify the geometry that you've imported with some clever usage of the Deformed ...

Inductive Liquid Metal Pump - new

Induction pumps are used in high temperature cooling systems. The principle of operation is equivalent to a linear three phase induction motor. The lack of moving parts and the pumped liquid being kept in a hermetically closed system are clear advantages. This model shows how to simulate a generic liquid Na pump.

The Black-Scholes Equation

The Black-Scholes equation, computes the value u of a European stock option. Black-Scholes derived an analytical expression for the solution to this problem. However, the formula works only for certain cases; for instance, you cannot employ it when sigma and r are functions of x and t. Here, sigma denotes the volatility, r the continuous compounding rate of interest, and x the underlying asset ...

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.

Optimizing a Birdcage Coil to Improve MRI Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems generate a magnetic flux density (B-field) to create images. Providing a homogeneous field distribution within a birdcage coil is a key factor for improving the quality of the scanned data. A homogeneous magnetic field can be found through quadrature excitation, in combination with the appropriate number of lumped elements. In this model, the magnetic ...

Thick Wall Cylinder Benchmark Problem

A thick wall cylinder is exposed to both internal and external pressure and thermal load. The model is both plane and axisymmetric. The results are compared to the analytic solution.
