Baffled Membrane

Learn how to use the Acoustic-Shell Interaction interface in this tutorial example of a thin vibrating membrane set in an infinite baffle. This example demonstrates how to model the acoustic interaction between a vibrating membrane and the surrounding air. In order to focus on the principles, the geometry is kept simple and the driving mechanism is not modeled.

Acoustic Reflection Analyzer for a Water-Sediment Interface

Analyzing acoustic reflections at surfaces of various structures is important for many engineering disciplines. The Acoustic Reflection Analyzer for a Water-Sediment Interface app shows one such system where the analysis has relevance for underwater acoustics and sonar applications. The app analyzes the reflection and absorption coefficients of plane acoustic waves, scattering off of a water ...

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.

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 ...

Hollow Cylinder

Fluid acoustics coupled to structural objects, such as membranes or plates, represents an important application area in many engineering fields.

The Organ Pipe Designer allows you to study the design of an organ pipe and then play the sound and pitch of the changed design in a user-friendly app. The pipe sound includes the effects of different harmonics with different amplitudes. The organ pipe is modeled using the Pipe Acoustics, Frequency Domain interface in COMSOL Multiphysics. The simulation app allows you to analyze how the first ...

One-Family House Acoustics Analyzer

The One-Family House Acoustics Analyzer app is used to assess noise propagation in coupled rooms inside of a two-story house consisting of ten rooms. The app determines the sound pressure level (SPL) distribution in the house based on a number of sources that are interactively placed throughout the home. It represents a classical room acoustics problem where engineers or architects want to ...

Acoustic Muffler with Thermoacoustic Impedance Lumping

This model utilizes the thermoacoustic interface in a sub-model to obtain detailed results for the transfer impedance of a perforated plate (including the thermal and viscous losses). The impedance is in turn used as an internal impedance in a pressure acoustic model of a muffler. The results are compared to classic impedance models and measurements.

Vibrating Particle in Water — Correct Thermoviscous Acoustic Material Parameters

This is a tutorial model that simulates a small vibrating hemispherical particle in water. The vibrations induce acoustic waves in the fluid. The model shows how to set up the material parameters in a thermoacoustic model to get the correct acoustic (compressible) waves in the fluid.
