Arterial Wall Viscoelasticity

Anisotropic hyperelastic materials are used for modeling collagenous soft tissue in arterial walls. The arterial _wall_ mechanics application describes a section of an artery based on the Holzapfel-Gasser-Ogden hyperelastic material model. In this example the dynamic behavior of the artery is studied, especially the viscoelastic response is calculated by adding a five branches viscoelasticity ...

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 ...

Electrodeposition of an Inductor Coil

This example models the deposition of an inductor coil in 3D. The geometry includes the extrusion of the deposition pattern into an isolating photoresist mask, and a diffusion layer on top of the photoresist. The mass transfer of copper ions in the electrolyte has a major impact on the deposition kinetics, resulting in higher deposition rates in the outer parts of the deposition pattern. The ...

Small Signal Analysis of a MOSFET

This model shows how to compute the AC characteristics of a MOSFET. Both the output conductance and the transconductance are computed as a function of the drain current.

Designing a Waveguide Diplexer for the 5G Mobile Network

A diplexer is a device that combines or splits signals into two different frequency bands, widely used in mobile communication systems. This model simulates splitting properties using a simplified 2D geometry. The computed S-parameters and electric fields at the lower and upper bands will show the diplexer characteristics in the Ka-band.

Linear Buckling Analysis of a Truss Tower

Trusses are commonly used to create light structures that can support heavy loads. When designing such a structure, it is important to ensure its safety. For a tower made of bars, buckling can cause the structure to collapse. This model shows how to compute the critical buckling load using a linear buckling analysis. The solution is compared with an analytical expression for critical load ...

Disc Resonator Anchor Losses

This model shows how to compute the anchor loss limited quality factor of a diamond disc resonator. The resonator is anchored to the substrate by a polysilicon post and power is transmitted to the substrate through the post. A perfectly matched layer is used to represent the essentially infinite substrate. The model is based on a paper presented at the 2007 COMSOL conference in Grenoble: P. ...

Lemaitre-Chaboche Viscoplastic Model

Most metals and alloys undergo viscoplastic deformation at high temperatures. In case of cyclic loading, a constitutive law with both isotropic and kinematic hardening is necessary to describe effects such as ratcheting, cyclic softening/hardening, and stress relaxation. The Lemaitre-Chaboche viscoplastic model combines isotropic hardening with nonlinear kinematic hardening to model these ...

Using COMSOL Models Together with Curve Fitting

This example exemplifies how curve fitting can be performed in COMSOL Multiphysics®, and how this can be applied to your modeling. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Curve Fitting of Experimental Data with COMSOL Multiphysics](https://www.comsol.com/blogs/curve-fitting-of-experimental-data-with-comsol-multiphysics/)".

Gecko Foot

In nature, geckos use dry adhesion forces to climb walls. They have inspired researchers to develop synthetic gecko foot hairs to be used in, for example, robot applications. This model contains the nano/micro hierarchy of a synthetic gecko foot hair, where cantilever beams both in nano and micro scales describe the seta and spatula parts of one spatula stalk attached to a gecko foot. The ...
