Traveling Load

This example shows how to model a load which varies in space and time. A series of load pulses travel along a beam which is supported at equal distances. For some combinations of the traveling speed of the load pulses and the spacing between them, it is possible to excite resonances in the beam. The effects of four different combinations of these parameters are investigated.

Multicomponent Tubular Reactor with Isothermal Cooling

This application uses the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module to study an elementary, exothermic, irreversible reaction in a tubular reactor (liquid phase, laminar flow regime). To keep its temperature down, the reactor uses a cooling jacket with a constant coolant temperature. The steady-state behavior of the reactor is investigated. The application visualizes how the Chemistry and Transport ...

Piezoelectric Valve

Piezoelectric valves are frequently employed in medical and laboratory applications due to their fast response times and quiet operation. Their energy efficient operation, also dissipates little heat, which is often important for these applications. This model shows how to model a piezoelectric valve in COMSOL. The valve is actuated by a stacked piezoelectric actuator. A hyper-elastic seal is ...

1D Step Bearing

This benchmark model computes the load-carrying capacity of a one dimensional hydrodynamic step bearing. The results are compared with analytic expressions obtained by solving the Reynolds equations directly in this simple case.

Modeling a Biconical Antenna for EMI/EMC Testing

Biconical antennas are popular for very high frequency (VHF) measurement because they support a wide frequency range. They are also useful for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing where the antenna can be used as an RF source in susceptibility or immunity test. This model simulates a biconical antenna made of lightweight hexagonal frames that are preferred over solid cones for ...

Four-Bar Mechanism with Assembly Defect

This is a benchmark model for flexible multibody dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of a planar four-bar mechanism when one of the joints has a defect. The out-of-plane motion in the mechanism, caused by the defect in the joint, is compared with the results from the reference.

Ultra-high Vacuum, Chemical Vapor Deposition

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a process often used in the Semiconductor industry to grow layers of high-purity solid material on top of a wafer substrate. CVD is achieved using many different techniques and across a range of pressures from atmospheric, to ultrahigh vacuum (UHV/CVD). UHV/CVD is performed at pressures below 10-6 Pa (10-8 Torr), so gas transport is achieved by molecular flow ...

Electrical Heating in a Busbar

This tutorial model of the Joule heating effect in a busbar demonstrates how to synchronize an assembly between Pro/ENGINEER and COMSOL, how to modify the geometry from COMSOL, and how to run a geometric parametric sweep.

Pacemaker Electrode
