Isothermal Box

This example solves the heat transfer in an isothermal box aimed at transporting refrigerated articles such as medical materials for 24 hours. In this case, the box not only has to keep the content cold in a long period of time, but also has to respect a storage temperature restriction. In this model, the restriction interval is between 2 °C and 8 °C.

Acoustics of a Living Room

Prevent shaking windows and enhance the sound experience by careful positioning of the loudspeakers in your room. This tutorial analyzes the low frequency response of a living room to the woofer units of two loudspeakers, and solves for the eigenfrequencies of the room. The room geometry and furniture are synchronized from {:revit} through the {:livelink} interface.

Scordelis-Lo Roof Shell Benchmark

In this example a thin curved membrane is built and solved using the Shell interface. This model is a widely used benchmark model denoted the Scordelis-Lo roof. The computed maximum z-deformation is compared with the value given in Proposed Standard Set of Problems to Test Finite Element Accuracy, Finite Elements in Analysis and Design, 1985.

Thin Layer Chronoamperometry

The common electroanalytical method of exhaustive amperometric detection in a microscopic thin layer is modelled as a 1D-symmetric diffusion problem. The simulated result agrees with the analytical Cottrell equation at short times, and deviates as expected at long times when the diffusion layer spans the thin layer cell.

Wideband RCS Calculation Using Time-Domain Simulation and FFT

This example model calculates the bistatic radar cross section (RCS) per unit length of a circle using the Electromagnetic Waves, Time Explicit physics interface. A 2D circle is excited by a 200 MHz sinusoidal signal modulated by a temporal Gaussian pulse. A wideband RCS frequency response around 200 MHz is obtained from Time Dependent and Time to Frequency FFT study steps.

Electrodeposition of a Microconnector Bump in 2D

This model demonstrates the impact of convection and diffusion on the transport-limited electrodeposition of a copper microconnector bump (metal post). Microconnector bumps are used in various types of electronic applications for interconnecting components, for instance liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and driver chips. The location of the bumps on the electrode surface is controlled by the use ...

Dynamic Behavior of a Spring Loaded Rotating Slider

This model illustrates the modeling of slider motion caused by a base rotation. The motion of the slider is analyzed under various forces such as inertia force, centrifugal force, spring force and damping force. The prismatic joint, which is used to connect the two components, is spring loaded and also includes damping effects. The motion of the slider is compared with the analytical ...

Child's Law Benchmark

Space charge limited emission is a phenomenon that restricts the current of charged particles that can be released from a surface. As the electron current released by a cathode increases, so does the magnitude of the charge density in the immediate vicinity of the cathode. This distribution of charge density exerts an electric force on the emitted electrons, directed toward the cathode. The ...

Danckwerts Benchmark

This model compares the solution to the model equations of a tubular reactor using Danckwerts inlet and outlet conditions. A second almost identical model is defined with extra inlet and outlet sections where no reactions occur. The concentration at the beginning of the inlet section is fixed. The results with Danckwerts conditions and with fixed inlet concentrations are compared.

Simulating a Corrugated Waveguide and Its Impedance

This example exemplifies how to model the impedance of a waveguide of varying cross sectional area. A more detailed description of the phenomenon and the modeling process can be seen in the blog post "[Computing the Impedance of a Corrugated Waveguide](".
