# Application Gallery

The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.

Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. 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.

### Electrical Heating in a Busbar Assembly

This tutorial model of the Joule heating effect in a busbar demonstrates how to synchronize an assembly between the SOLIDWORKS® software and the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, how to modify the geometry from COMSOL Multiphysics®, and how to run a geometric ... Read More

### Creating a Fluid Domain Inside a Solid Structure

The majority of 3D CAD files include only the geometry of the product to be manufactured. For finite element analysis, however, you find yourself often in a situation where additional geometry is needed, for example, to analyze the flow inside or outside a device. This tutorial, ... Read More

### Bike Frame Analyzer

The reliability of a bike frame can be estimated by analyzing the structural stress subjected to different load cases. This app leverages LiveLink™ for SOLIDWORKS® to interactively update the geometry while computing stress analyses. Using this app, you can easily test different ... Read More

### Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Tuning Fork

This model computes the fundamental eigenfrequency and eigenmode for a tuning fork that is synchronized from SolidWorks via the LiveLink interface. The length of the fork is then optimized so that the tuning fork sounds the note A, 440 Hz. Read More

### Stress Analysis of a Pipe Fitting from a CAD File

This tutorial model shows the setup of a 2D axisymmetric stress analysis, through contact, of a 3D threaded pipe fitting. The example involves synchronizing the 3D SOLIDWORKS® geometry and selections, which specify the faces in contact, with the 2D geometry in COMSOL  ... Read More

### Wheel Rim Defeaturing Tutorial Series

This tutorial series demonstrates three different approaches to remove small geometric entities from an imported 3D CAD geometry of a wheel rim: the Repair operation, the Defeaturing tools, and the Remove Details operation. Use Repair to automatically find and remove small entities ... Read More

### Set-Up Applications that Synchronize Geometry Using LiveLink for SOLIDWORKS

This example demonstrates an application that utilizes the LiveLink interface for SOLIDWORKS to synchronize the CAD design. Read More

### 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. Read More

### Geometric Parameter Optimization of a Bracket

This example minimizes the mass of a bracket that is synchronized from SOLIDWORKS® via the LiveLink™ interface. There are limits both for the lowest natural frequency, and for the maximum stress in a static load case. The size and position for a number of geometrical features is changed ... Read More
