Vibration analysis of perforated plates is extremely important when designing structures where resonance is the possible mode of failure. This paper deals with the vibration analysis of rectangular perforated plates with three different types of perforations. Vibration analysis is to be carried out by both COMSOL Multiphysics® Software and Experimental set-up. The applications of perforated ...

Bloch waves in infinite periodic structures – much in vogue in the present metamaterial age – can be conveniently studied by COMSOL Multiphysics® software. This is demonstrated by a simple, yet rich two-dimensional example: a perforated sheet with square symmetry. Instead of plane waves in homogeneous media, one has to deal with their generalizations: the Bloch waves. The frequencies of such ...

The present work deals with a numerical investigation of resonating systems used for noise control applications. In literature one can find analytical models based on fluiddynamics concepts for evaluating losses occurring across the holes of the perforates. In the paper an acoustical formulation based on the equivalent dissipative fluid approach will be analyzed. It will be firstly applied to ...

The knowledge of the acoustical transfer paths in active noise control systems is very important for the performance of the system. Unfortunately, simulation is challenging since even simple configurations require comprehensive experience in physics and modeling. Two test setups were chosen for basic investigations on modeling, simulation and validation. The first results presented here are ...

A compression driver is a certain type of electrodynamic loudspeaker which has a phase plug with slits in front of the diaphragm. The slits are narrow enough that the so-called viscothermal effects are of significant importance. In this paper a 2D axisymmetric finite element model of a commercial compression driver is established where the vibroacoustic behavior can be evaluated. The ...

High-intensity discharge (HID) lamps are energy-efficient light sources with excellent color qualities. A three-dimensional model of a low-wattage lamp, which includes plasma, electrodes, and burner walls, was developed in COMSOL Multiphysics®. Most parameters appearing in the coupled differential equations of the model, such as viscosity, thermal and electrical conductivity are temperature ...

Sound vibrations are collected from the external environment by the eardrum and are guided to the basilar membrane in the cochlea. Pressure differences in the two scalae of the cochlea result in a traveling wave on the basilar membrane. The tiny displacements are detected by the deflection of thousands of hair cells, situated along this membrane. It is hypothesized that some 3/4 of these hair ...

Introduction - The ability to precisely manipulate fluid and particles at microscales is one of the essential requirements for various lab-on-a-chip applications such as drug diagnostics, chemical synthesis etc. Recently, the nonlinear interaction of surface acoustic waves (SAW) with fluid at microscales has been utilized to achieve this aim. When surface acoustic waves interact with fluid ...

This paper examines a sound propagation without airflow through circular ducts with spiral element inside. Models are numerically computed in three-dimensions. The spiral element in the duct is a newly analyzed acoustical element, geometrically similar to the well-known Archimedes screw. It can be applied significantly in ducted systems, such as ventilation, air-conditioning and heat ...
