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.
This is the model of an occluded ear canal simulator (a generic 711 coupler). Besides certain details the geometry corresponds to the Brüel & Kjær Ear Simulator Type 4157. The real life couplers are used for simulating the acoustics of a standardized human ear canal and can be used for ... Read More
This tutorial shows how to model the propagation of acoustic waves in large pipe systems by coupling the *Pipe Acoustics* interface to the *Pressure Acoustics* interface. The tutorial is set up in both the time domain and the frequency domain. 1D pipe acoustics is used to model the ... Read More
In many applications, acoustic waves interact with surfaces that have small perforations or slits. This can be in muffler systems; in soundproofing structures; in liners for noise suppression in jet engines; or in grilles and meshes in front of, for example, miniature speakers in mobile ...

In applications where pressure and elastic waves propagate in porous materials filled with air, both thermal and viscous losses are important. This is typically the case in insulation materials for rooms, lining materials in car cabins, or foams used in headsets and speakers. Another ... Read More
This tutorial simulates a small vibrating hemispherical particle in water. The particle has a radius of 1 mm and is oscillating in the axial direction at a frequency of 50 kHz. The vibrations induce acoustic waves in the fluid. The example demonstrates how to set up a thermoviscous ... Read More
A Coriolis flowmeter, also known as a mass flowmeter or an inertial flowmeter, is used to measure the mass flow rate of a fluid traveling through it. It makes use of the fact that the fluid's inertia through an oscillating tube causes the tube to twist in proportion to the mass flow ... Read More
Learn how to use the Acoustic-Shell Interaction interface in this tutorial example of a thin vibrating membrane set in an infinite baffle. This example demonstrates how to model the acoustic interaction between a vibrating membrane and the surrounding air. In order to focus on the ... Read More
This application illustrates how to use COMSOL’s optimization capabilities to automatically develop novel designs satisfying critical design constraints. The model optimizes a simple speaker geometry. Examples of constraints could include the radius of the loudspeaker or a desired ... Read More
An ellipse with sound-hard walls has the interesting property that an acoustic signal emanating from one of the foci refocuses at the other focal point b/c seconds later, where b (in meters) is the major axis length and c (m/s) is the speed of sound. This model involves a Gaussian ... Read More
Example of a moving-coil loudspeaker where lumped parameters represent the behavior of the electrical and mechanical components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented using the *Electric Circuit* interface. The ... Read More
