Galeria de Modelos

The Model Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics model files from a wide variety of application areas including the electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical disciplines. You can download ready-to-use models and step-by-step instructions for building the model, and use these as a starting point for your own modeling work. Use the Quick Search to find models relevant to your area of expertise, and login or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license to download the model files.

Inflation of a Spherical Rubber Balloon

This model aims to investigate the inflation of a rubber balloon with different hyperelastic material models, and compare the results to analytical expressions. A controlled inflation could benefit clinical applications, cardiovascular research, and the medical device industry, thus the importance of understanding the hyperelastic behavior during balloon inflations. The example is taken from ...

Compression of an Elastoplastic Pipe

In offshore applications, it is sometimes necessary to quickly seal a pipe as part of the prevention of a blowout. This example shows a simulation, in which a circular pipe is squeezed between two flat stiff indenters. The model serves as an example of an analysis with very large plastic strains and contact.

Pressurized Orthotropic Container

A thin-walled container made out of rolled steel is subjected to inner overpressure. The material is represented with an elastic isotropic model together with Hill orthotropic plasticity. The principal directions of the material follow the geometrical shape of the structure and therefore a unique base vector system is created. The stress and plastic strain due to overpressure are evaluated. The ...

Thermally Induced Creep

Creep is an inelastic time-dependent deformation which occurs when a material is subjected to stress at sufficiently high temperature, say 40% of the melting point or more. Experimental creep data (using constant stress and temperature) often display three different types of behavior for the creep strain rate as function of time: In the initial primary creep regime the creep strain rate ...

Elastoplastic Analysis of Plate with a Center Hole

In this model you analyze a perforated plate loaded into the plastic regime. In addition to the original problem, which you can find in section 7.10 of The Finite Element Method by O.C. Zienkiewicz, you can also study the unloading of the plate. The model also shows how to apply an external hardening function based on an interpolated stress-strain curve.

Plastic Deformation During the Expansion of a Biomedical Stent

A stent is a wire-mesh tube used to open a coronary artery during angioplasty, a process for the removal or compression of plaque. Their design is of significance for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with stenting. During this procedure, a stent is deployed into the blood vessel by means of a balloon. The expanded stent acts as a scaffold that keeps the blood vessel open. During this ...

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 consist ...

Combining Creep Material Models

This model illustrates how to combine together different Creep material models. Here a Norton-Bailey creep material (primary creep) is combined with a Norton creep material model (secondary creep). This model requires the model thermally induced model and is a modification of the Model Library model Thermally Induced Creep.

Polynomial Hyperelastic Model

This model shows how you can implement a user defined hyperelastic material, using the strain density energy function. The model used is a general Mooney-Rivlin hyperelastic material model defined by a polynomial. In this example, you will see two material models based on the defined expression: a two-term equation and a five-term equation. The two-term Mooney-Rivlin material model implementation ...
