How to Export Images Automatically After Solving

This example demonstrates how to use a parameterized slice plot and animation functionality to export a sequence of images. In addition, the example shows how to use a job sequence to perform a programmatic sequence of operations where the model is first solved and then the image sequence is generated and saved to file, all automatically. In the blog post associated with these files, "[How to ...

Simulation of a Counterweight Trebuchet

In this multibody dynamics model of a simple counterweight trebuchet, a parametric sweep is used to study throwing distance as function of the sling length. For more details on performing a multibody analysis of a counterweight trebuchet, see this blog post: [What Is the Physics Behind a Counterweight Trebuchet?](/blogs/what-is-the-physics-behind-a-counterweight-trebuchet/)

Dispersion Diagram of a Thin-Film BAW Structure

This model shows how to create dispersion diagrams from simulation results by extending the tutorial Thin-Film BAW Composite Resonator. The dispersion curve can be plotted against both real and imaginary values of the wave number, corresponding to the propagating modes and evanescent modes, respectively. Each mode can also be visualized by plotting its displacement field. The consideration about ...

S-parameter of a Thin-Film BAW Resonator

This model shows how to compute the S-parameter for a piezoelectric MEMS device by extending the tutorial Thin-Film BAW Composite Resonator. The measurement of S-parameter is commonly used to characterize such devices for RF applications. The terminal feature in the Electrostatics physics interface provides straightforward access to the computed S-parameters for frequency domain study types.

Primary Creep Under Nonconstant Load

In this model example, you will study the creep behavior of material under non-constant loading. You will model the primary creep using a Norton-Bailey law and study the difference between the time hardening and the strain hardening methods available in COMSOL Multiphysics. The model is taken from NAFEMS Understanding Non-Linear Finite Analysis Through Illustrative Benchmarks. The load ...

Vdara® Caustic Surface

When the Vdara hotel first opened in Las Vegas, visitors relaxing by the pool would experience intense periods of heat at certain times of the day, at certain times of the year. This intense heat was caused by the reflection of solar radiation from the curved, reflective surface on the South-facing side of the hotel. This model shows how a caustic surface is generated in the pool area around the ...

Under-Deposit Corrosion

In this model, the effect of corrosion product on galvanic corrosion between a magnesium alloy (AE44) and mild steel in contact with brine solution is presented, wherein deformed boundaries due to both deposition of corrosion product as well as dissolution of magnesium are considered. The transport of Mg2+ ions generated at the magnesium surface and OH- ions generated at the mild steel surface ...

Molecular Flow Through an RF Coupler

This model computes the transmission probability through an RF coupler 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 determined by the two methods is in excellent agreement with less than a 1% difference. This model requires the Particle ...

Duct with Right Angled Bend

In this tutorial the acoustic behavior of a duct or waveguide with a right angled bend is analyzed. The model uses port boundary conditions at the inlet and outlet. The ports can capture and treat non-plane propagating modes in waveguides, extending the analysis above the first cutoff frequency. The transmission loss and the scattering coefficients of the system are determined.

Pacemaker Electrode

This model, dealing with the current and potential distribution around one pair of electrodes, demonstrates how to synchronize and modify geometry in SolidWorks by using the LiveLink interface.
