Thermal Expansion in a MEMS Device
Application ID: 1870
This model analyzes the thermal expansion in a MEMS device, such as a microgyroscope, where thermal expansion should be minimized. The device is made from the copper-beryllium alloy UNS C17500 and uses temperature-dependent material properties from the Material Library.
The purpose of this model is to exemplify the use of the Material Library in COMSOL Multiphysics. This library contains more than 20,000 property functions for 2500 materials. The larger part of these properties are mechanical and thermal properties for solid materials given as functions of temperature. You need the Material Library to build the model.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
