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 back to the acoustics domain so that the wave pattern can be analyzed. As such, the model becomes a good example of a scattering problem.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Acoustics Module Structural Mechanics Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
