Acoustics of a Particulate-Filter-Like System

This is the model of the acoustics in a particulate-filter-like system. Real systems, like diesel particulate filters (DPFs), are designed to remove/filter soot (diesel particles) from the exhaust of diesel engine vehicles. The porous medium in such systems are typically structured with long air filled slits/chanels. In this 2D axisymmetric model the filter is approximated with a porous material ...

Variably Saturated Flow

This example utilizes the Richards’ Equation interface to assess how well geophysical irrigation sensors see the true level of fluid saturation in variably saturated soils. The challenge to characterizing fluid movement in variably saturated porous media lies primarily in the need to describe how the capacity to transmit and store fluids changes as fluids enter and fill the pore space. ...

Fast Numerical Modeling of a Conical Horn Lens Antenna

An axisymmetric 3D structure such as a conical horn antenna can be simulated in a fast and efficient way using only its 2D layout. In this model, the antenna radiation and matching characteristics are computed very quickly with respect to the dominant TE mode from the given circular waveguide by simulating the 2D axisymmetric geometry of an 3D antenna structure.

Current Distribution in a Chlor-Alkali Membrane Cell

The chlor-alkali membrane process is one of the largest in industrial electrolysis with the production of roughly 40 million metric tons of both chlorine and caustic soda per year. Chlorine is used predominantly for the production of vinyl chloride monomer, which in turn is used for the production of poly vinyl chloride (PVC). Current density in membrane-cell technology has increased ...

Apartment Acoustics Analyzed using the Acoustic Diffusion Equation

The sound distribution from a TV in a two-room apartment is computed. The simulation demonstrates the use of the Acoustic Diffusion Equation interface to get a quick and simple estimate of the local sound pressure level. For increased accuracy, an analytical expression for the direct sound is added in the living room.

Parameterized Electronic Enclosure Geometry

This study simulates the thermal behavior of a computer Power Supply Unit (PSU). Most of such electronic enclosures include cooling devices to avoid electronic components to be damaged by excessively high temperatures. In this model, an extracting fan and a perforated grille cause an air flow in the enclosure to cool internal heating.

Parabolic Reflector Antenna

A large reflector can be modeled easily with the 2D axisymmetric formulation. In this model, the radius of the reflector is greater than 20 wavelengths and the reflector is illuminated by an axial feed circular horn antenna. The simulated far-field shows a high-gain sharp beam pattern

Elastoacoustic Effect in Rail Steel

The elastoacoustic effect is a change in the speed of elastic waves that propagate in a structure undergoing static elastic deformations. The effect is used in many ultrasonic techniques for nondestructive testing of prestressed states within structures. This example studies the elastoacoustic effect in steels typically used in railroad rails. The analysis is based on the Murnaghan hyperelastic ...

Optimal Cooling of a Tubular Reactor

Maximizing product yield is a main task in chemical reaction engineering. This can be especially challenging if the desired product, once formed, can be consumed by further reactions. This example investigates such a series reaction as it occurs in a tubular reactor. You will start by setting up the tightly coupled mass and energy balance equations describing the reactor using predefined ...

Antenna Decoupling Using An Electromagnetic Band Gap Meta-Material

An Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure can be used to increase the isolation between antennas close to each other. The decoupling effect is not only a function of frequency but also polarization and coupling-plane configuration. When designing an EBG structure, one needs to make sure to not apply an incorrect frequency and polarization, since this would increase the coupling between ...
