Vibrating Particle in Water

This tutorial simulates a small vibrating hemispherical particle in water. The particle has a radius of 1 mm and is oscillating in the axial direction at a frequency of 50 kHz. The vibrations induce acoustic waves in the fluid. The example demonstrates how to set up a thermoviscous ... Read More

Sedan Interior Acoustics

This is a model of the acoustics inside a sedan, that is inside a typical hard-top family car. The model sets up sources at loudspeaker locations as well as impedance conditions to model soft absorbing surfaces for the seats, carpet, and roof lining. The model results in plots of the ... Read More

Multilayered Porous Material: Poroelastic Waves with Thermal and Viscous Losses (Biot-Allard Model)

In applications where pressure and elastic waves propagate in porous materials filled with air, both thermal and viscous losses are important. This is typically the case in insulation materials for rooms, lining materials in car cabins, or foams used in headsets and speakers. Another ... Read More

Acoustics of a Pipe System with 3D Bend and Junction

This tutorial shows how to model the propagation of acoustic waves in large pipe systems by coupling the *Pipe Acoustics* interface to the *Pressure Acoustics* interface. The tutorial is set up in both the time domain and the frequency domain. 1D pipe acoustics is used to model the ... Read More

Coriolis Flowmeter: FSI Simulation in the Frequency Domain

A Coriolis flowmeter, also known as a mass flowmeter or an inertial flowmeter, is used to measure the mass flow rate of a fluid traveling through it. It makes use of the fact that the fluid's inertia through an oscillating tube causes the tube to twist in proportion to the mass flow ... Read More

Nonlinear Slit Resonator: Coupling Acoustics and CFD

In many applications, acoustic waves interact with surfaces that have small perforations or slits. This can be in muffler systems; in soundproofing structures; in liners for noise suppression in jet engines; or in grilles and meshes in front of, for example, miniature speakers in mobile ...

Shape Optimization of a Tweeter Waveguide

This application illustrates how to use COMSOL’s optimization capabilities to automatically develop novel designs satisfying critical design constraints. The model optimizes a simple speaker geometry. Examples of constraints could include the radius of the loudspeaker or a desired ... Read More

Lumped Loudspeaker Driver Using a Lumped Mechanical System

Example of a moving-coil loudspeaker where lumped parameters represent the behavior of the electrical and mechanical components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented using the *Electric Circuit* interface. The ... Read More

Generic 711 Coupler—An Occluded Ear-Canal Simulator

This is the model of an occluded ear canal simulator (a generic 711 coupler). Besides certain details the geometry corresponds to the Brüel & Kjær Ear Simulator Type 4157. The real life couplers are used for simulating the acoustics of a standardized human ear canal and can be used for ... Read More

Acoustic Liner with a Grazing Background Flow

This model demonstrates how to compute the acoustic properties of an acoustic liner with a grazing flow. The liner consists of eight resonators with thin slits. The background grazing flow is at Mach number 0.3. The sound pressure level above the liner is computed and can be compared to ... Read More
