Absorptive Muffler

The sound level from a car depends to a great extent of the quality of the muffler. Over the years, researchers in the car industry have struggled to produce mufflers that are efficient from both an acoustic and an environmental perspective. This model describes the pressure wave propagation in a muffler for an internal combustion engine. The model also shows how to analyze both inductive ...

Two-port Piezoelectric SAW Device

This tutorial shows how to model surface acoustic waves in time domain. The 3D modeling geometry represents a 128 degree YX-cut lithium niobate substrate. The SAW device has two ports. The metallic electrodes are modeled as perfect conductors using boundary conditions. The geometric dimensions such as size of substrate, the gap between the ports and the number of inter-digitated electrodes (IDTs) ...

Acoustic-Structure Interaction

Liquid or gas acoustics coupled to structural objects such as membranes, plates or solids are important applications in many engineering fields. This model is a general demonstration of an acoustic fluid phenomenon in 3D that is coupled to a solid object. The walls of the solid object are impacted by the acoustic pressure. The frequency response from the solid is calculated, which is then fed ...

Loudspeaker Driver

This is a model of a loudspeaker of the dynamic cone driver type, common for low and medium frequencies. The model analysis includes the total electric impedance and the on-axis sound pressure level at a nominal driving voltage, as functions of the frequency. The model starts out with the Small-Signal analysis from the AC/DC Module to compute the driving force and the blocked voice coil ...

Piezoacoustic Transducer

A piezoelectric transducer can be used either to transform an electric current to an acoustic pressure field or, the opposite, to produce an electric current from an acoustic field. These devices are generally useful for applications that require the generation of sound in air and liquids. Examples of such applications include phased array microphones, ultrasound equipment, inkjet droplet ...

Acoustic Transmission Loss through Periodic Elastic Structures

In this model, two fluids are separated by a solid elastic structure. An acoustic pressure wave impacts the structure resulting in a reflected wave and a wave transmitted with a loss through the structure. This model investigates the transmission loss through the structure. The effects of incident angle, frequency, and dampings are studied. Important features used: Acoustic-structure ...

Point Source in 2D Jet: Radiation and refraction of sound waves through a 2D shear layer

This is a benchmark model for the linearized Euler interface of the Acoustics Module. The model is from the NASA "Fourth Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA) Workshop on Benchmark Problems (2004)". The model results are compared to an analytical solution by Agarwal et al. (AIAA Vol. 42, No. 1, January 2004). A point source is located in a narrow 2D jet of Mach 0.8. The model investigates the ...

Sonic Well Logging

This model demonstrates how to simulate a piezoelectric transducer as both a sound transmitter and a receiver in a well logging setup. Other applications of this setup are, for example, in the field of nondestructive testing. A transmitting transducer is connected to an electrical circuit which is set up to send out a pulse as a detecting signal and also pick up the signals that come back to the ...

Muffler with Perforates

Reflective mufflers are best suited for the low frequency range where only plane waves can propagate in the system, while dissipative mufflers with fibers are efficient in the mid-to-high frequency range. Dissipative mufflers based on flow losses, on the other hand, work also at low frequencies. A typical automotive exhaust system is a hybrid construction consisting of a combination of ...

Nonlinear Acoustics: Modeling of 1D Westervelt Equation

This model example shows how to model nonlinear propagation of 1D finite-amplitude Acoustic waves in fluids using Acoustics Module of COMSOL Multiphysics. The model is based on the 2nd order Westervelt equation. The one dimensional nonlinear wave equation is solved in the time domain by adding the nonlinear term to the linear equation. The model does not include energy dissipation in order ...
