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.


Electrodeposition on a Resistive Patterned Wafer

This example models time-dependent copper deposition on a resistive wafer in a cupplater reactor. As the deposited layer builds up, the resistive losses of the deposited layer decreases. The benefit of using a current thief for a more uniform deposit is demonstrated. Read More

Caughey-Thomas Mobility

With an increase in the parallel component of the applied field, carriers can gain energies above the ambient thermal energy and be able to transfer energy gained by the field to the lattice by optical phonon emission. The latter effect leads to a saturation of the carriers mobility. The ... Read More

Biosensor Designer for Use with COMSOL Client for Android™

COMSOL Client for Android™ is an app available in the Google Play™ store for users of COMSOL Server™. It includes features and functionality designed specifically for use with tablets and other mobile devices. The Biosensor Designer comes in two different layouts: * ... Read More

Mandelbrot Set and Perlin Noise new

Fractals exhibit self-similarity at different scales and are often found in nature. Fractal noise is a technique used to emulate organic-looking textures, such as to achieve realistic visualizations of various materials in COMSOL Multiphysics®. These models demonstrate how to ... Read More

Optimizing a Flywheel Profile

This example solves the problem of finding the optimal thickness profile of a flywheel, so that the moment of inertia is maximized without increasing the mass or the maximum stress in the flywheel. Read More

Superfilling Electrodeposition

This example illustrates the concept of superfilling in electrodeposition. The deposition rate is accelerated in concave areas of the surface, where the concentration of a surface catalyst is increased due to the area contraction of the moving boundary. Read More

Critical Speed of a Dual Rotor System

Due to the demand for larger power with a smaller size, dual-shaft systems with intershaft bearings are becoming a standard configuration for gas turbine engines. Such systems consist of two coaxial rotors running at different speeds, interlinked through a multi-spool bearing. In this ... Read More

Shape and Topology Optimization of Compliant Pliers

Compliant mechanisms are attractive due to their simplicity, owing to their lack of hinges. In this model we show how to design a set of compliant pliers using topology optimization. The resulting design is post-processed using shape optimization, where the maximum stress is constrained ... Read More

Tank Series with Feedback Control

This example illustrates how to set up and solve a tank-in-series model in 0D using the Reaction Engineering interface. The model treats a series of three consecutive tank reactors. A feedback loop continuously adjusts the inlet concentration of the first tank to keep the concentration ... Read More

Minimizing the Flow Velocity in a 3D Microchannel

Inverted elements can prevent large deformations for shape optimization. This model demonstrates how this problem can be circumvented using export/import of the geometry and a model method. The technique is demonstrated on a benchmark problem from topology optimization, where the ... Read More
