High frequency side-scan sonar, to be fitted on a miniaturized submersible explorer, have been simulated and built. The purpose of this study is to see if COMSOL Multiphysics® can be used to predict the performance of the sonar, especially the beam width, setting the resolution of the system. Four models were created, from simple 2-D geometries to more complex 3-D models. The simulated beam ...

We present a full modal -analysis of optical and acoustic properties based on two-dimensional finite-element method (2D-FEM) for Brillouin Gain spectrum (BGS) determination in optical fibers with COMSOL. This model enables us to predict precisely the BGS of any kind of silica fiber knowing well the geometry of doping composition. The results of numerical modeling have shown good agreement in ...

Acoustic Attenuation Performance Of Helicoidal Resonator Due To Distance Change From Different Cross-Sectional Elements Of Cylindrical Duct

W. Łapka
Poznań University of Technology, Poznań, Poland

This work presents acoustic attenuation performance of helicoidal resonator due to distance change from different cross-sectional elements of cylindrical duct. The helicoidal resonator properties are described mainly in in infinite long cylindrical duct. For practical applications it is important to know the limits of use of this solution. This paper describes how the helicoidal resonator should ...

The Significance of Coupling in 3D Modelling of Acoustic Wave Propagation in a Cavity Containing Air and Porous Absorbent

L. Kelly, Y.W. Lam, and M. Avis
Research Institute for the Built and Human Environment, University of Salford

This study examines acoustic wave propagation in air and porous media in three dimensions using numerical models; in particular it looks at the significance of the coupling effect between the air and porous layer. The numerical model consist of a layer of air and a layer of porous absorbent which are modelled as equivalent fluid and are characterised by complex characteristic impedance based ...

School of Electronics Engineering, VIT University, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India

The realization of miniature SAW device is compatible on CMOS device for mobile and wireless communication system has become very important in recent years. Acoustic wave propagation along the surface of a piezoelectric material provides a means of implementing a variety of signal processing devices at frequency ranging from several MHz to a few GHz. In this work, a Miniature SAW device is ...

Room-Acoustics in Open Space Offices

T. Zeugin
Zeugin Bauberatungen AG
Münsingen, Switzerland

Especially in large offices and call centers the noise pollution of Employees and mutual disturbance is an actual problem. The existing distribution of the sound pressure level in a range of frequency from 100 – 250 Hz show significant noise pollution also at remote workplaces for the current state of the examined large office. For improvements the influence of compact wideband sound ...

Matryoshka Locally Resonant Sonic Crystal

Department of Physics
Loughborough University
Loughborough, UK

The results of numerical modelling of sonic crystals with resonant array elements are reported. The acoustic band structure and transmission characteristics of such systems have been computed with the use of finite element methods. An existence of a separate attenuation mechanism associated with the resonant elements, which increases performance in the lower frequency regime has been ...

Design Optimization of a Microphone by Modeling and Simulation

E. Nesvijski
Acoustics@ MBD Consultants LLC.
Westborough, MA

Applied 2D scale model presents a semi-realistic design or a microphone and shows the main mechanical, magnetic coil and electrical parts. Some non-vital elements are excluded for better focusing on acoustic properties of the microphone. The models are tested for frequency response, acoustic power loss, directivity patterns as well design and materials optimization. Based on 2D model analysis ...
