Beam Subjected to Traveling Load

As an example of how to build an app using the Application Builder, this application simulates the transient response of a beam, or bridge, that is placed on several equidistant supports and is subjected to a traveling load. The purpose of the Beam Subjected to Traveling Load app is to analyze the structural response of a bridge when vehicles pass over it. Many of the bridge's parameters can be ...

Design Sensitivities in a COMSOL Model

This example exemplifies how to compute the design sensitivities of your COMSOL Multiphysics® model. A more detailed description of the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Computing Design Sensitivities in COMSOL Multiphysics](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/computing-design-sensitivities-in-comsol-multiphysics/)".

Flexible and Smooth Strip Footing on Stratum of Clay

A common verification model for geotechnical problems is of a shallow stratum layer of clay. In this model, a vertical load is applied to the clay strata top surface and the static response and collapse load are studied. The clay is modeled as an elastic-perfectly plastic material and the Mohr-Coulomb yield condition under plane strain conditions is used. The response is studied using an ...

Polymerization in Multijet Tubular Reactor

In a polymerization reactor for polyester manufacturing, the mixing in the reactor is achieved by impinging turbulent jets of reactants onto each other. The turbulence affects the reaction kinetics and quality of the polymer linkage. Turbulent flows involving rapid reaction kinetics are quite common in the production of polymers, and the complex interplay between fluid dynamics and fast ...

Thick Plate Stress Analysis

A benchmark model where a thick plate exposed to pressure on the top surface is analyzed. The solution is compared with a NAFEMS benchmark solution.

Surface Trapping in a Silicon Nanowire Gate-All-Around Device

A gate-all-around MOSFET consists of a nanowire with a gate electrode wrapped around the circumference. Since the entire nanowire forms the channel, this configuration provides the best possible electrostatic control of the channel and offers a good candidate for the miniaturization of MOSFETs. This model analyzes a silicon nanowire gate-all-around device, with different trap densities at the ...

Comparison of Different Hydrodynamic Bearings

This example demonstrates how you can use modeling to investigate the performance of different hydrodynamic journal bearings. The model uses the *Hydrodynamic Bearing* interface, which solves the Reynolds equation to compute the pressure developed in a thin fluid film for four different bearing types: plain, elliptic, split-halves, and multilobe. Results include the fluid pressure profile on ...

Temperature Field in a Cooling Flange

A cooling flange in a chemical process is used to cool the process fluid, which flows through the flange. The surrounding air cools the flange via natural convection. In the stationary model, the forced convection to the process fluid is modeled using a constant heat transfer coefficient. The natural convection cooling is modeled using tabulated empirical transfer coefficients that are ...

Jet Pipe

This example models the radiation of fan noise from the annular duct of a turbofan aeroengine. When the jet stream exits the duct, a vortex sheet appears along the extension of the duct wall due to the surrounding air moving at a lower speed. The near field on both sides of the vortex sheet is calculated. The linearized Potential Flow physics interface in the Acoustics Module describes acoustic ...

Molecular Flow Through an S-Bend

This model computes the transmission probability through an s-bend geometry using both the angular coefficient method available in the Free Molecular Flow interface and a Monte Carlo method using the Mathematical Particle Tracing interface. The computed transmission probability by the two methods is in excellent agreement with less than a 1% difference. This model requires the Particle Tracing ...
