Vibrating Particle in Water: Correct Thermoacoustic 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.

Doppler Shift

We have all noticed the Doppler effect when an ambulance passes by with its sirens blaring. The siren’s pitch suddenly drops the moment the ambulance starts moving away from you. Another effect you can notice is how the siren’s sound is very loud when nearby, but as soon as the ambulance has passed the sound becomes much quieter. This model simulates the acoustic Doppler effect by ...

Bessel Panel

The Bessel panel is a way to arrange a number of loudspeakers so that the angular sound distribution resembles that of a single speaker. This model combines five Bessel panels in the same pattern to approximate a purely radial sound field. The speakers are driven with different signals, some of them in counter-phase. This results in an approximately homogeneous polar far-field ...

Acoustic Muffler with Thermoacoustic Impedance Lumping

This model utilizes the thermoacoustic interface in a submodel to obtain a detailed (and more precise) measure for the transfer impedance of a perforated plate. The impedance is in turn used as an internal impedance in a pressure acoustic model of a muffler. Results are compared to classic impedance models.

Tuning Fork with Acoustics

Acoustic-Structural Interaction in a Tuning Fork This model simulates a tuning fork for tuning musical instruments which, if correctly designed, should sound the note of A, 440 Hz. First an eigenfrequency analysis is performed on this structure to ensure its fundamental frequency is exactly 440 Hz. Then the interaction between the structural vibrations in the tuning fork and the acoustic ...

Jet Pipe

This example models the radiation of fan noise from the annular duct of a turbofan aeroengine. When the jet stream exits the duct, a vortex sheet appears along the extension of the duct wall due to the surrounding air moving at a lower speed. The near field on both sides of the vortex sheet is calculated. The Aeroacoustics modeling interface in the Acoustics Module describes acoustic waves in a ...

Eigenmodes in a Muffler

In this model, compute the propagating modes in the chamber of an automotive muffler. The geometry is a cross-section of the chamber in the Absorptive Muffler example. The model’s purpose is to study the shape of the propagating modes and to find their cut-off frequencies. As discussed in the documentation for the Absorptive Muffler, some of the modes significantly affect the damping of the ...

Loudspeaker Suspension

In this model, the resistance and compliance of the suspension in the Loudspeaker Driver model are computed using a purely mechanical analysis.

Sonic Well Logging

This model demonstrates how to simulate a piezoelectric transducer as both a sound transmitter and a receiver in a well logging setup. Other applications of this setup are, for example, in the field of nondestructive testing. A transmitting transducer is connected to an electrical circuit which is set up to send out a pulse as a detecting signal and also pick up the signals that come back to the ...
