Reactive Muffler

Model ID: 262


This is a benchmarking model to compare the abilities of COMSOL to an analytical solution.

The model examines the sound-transmission properties of an idealized reactive muffler with infinitely long inlet and outlet pipes and one expansion chamber. The infinitely long inlet and outlets are simulated through a reflection-free source at the inlet pipe and a reflection-free end of the outlet pipe, both in-built boundary conditions.

The axisymmetric COMSOL Multiphysics solution compares favourably to the theoretical 1D solution.

This model was built using the following:
