Optimizing the Shape of a Horn

A plane-wave mode feeds an axisymmetric horn radiating from an infinite baffle towards an open half space. The radius of the feeding waveguide is assumed to be fixed, as well as the depth of the horn and the size of the hole where the horn is attached to the baffle. By varying the curvature of the initially conical surface of the horn, its directivity and impedance can be changed. This model ...

Helmholtz Resonator Analyzed with Different Frequency Domain Solvers

This model simulates a simple three-dimensional axisymmetric Helmholtz resonator, a classic acoustics model of a resonating circuit with a known theoretical solution. The idealized version considered here consists of a tube and a closed volume in series which are exposed to a pulsatile pressure. Real-world phenomena explained by the resonator include amongst others the resonance from blowing ...

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 ...

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 ...

Acoustic-Structure Interaction and Air Flow in Violins

These models are featured in the blog post [Analyze Violin Tone and Volume with Multiphysics Modeling](http://www.comsol.com/blogs/analyze-violin-tone-and-volume-with-multiphysics-modeling/). One applies acoustic-structure interaction to study how the air mode resonance is affected by the coupled vibrations in the violin body. The other uses a potential flow approximation to find out how the air ...

Organ Pipe Design

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 ...

Small Concert Hall Analyzer

Designing structures and open spaces with respect to sound quality is important for concert halls, outdoor environments, and even the rooms of a house. Simulating acoustics in the high-frequency limit, where the wavelength is smaller than the geometrical features, can be done with ray acoustics. This application analyzes the acoustics of a small concert hall using the Ray Acoustics physics ...

Piezoelectric Tonpilz Transducer with a Prestressed Bolt

A tonpilz transducer is used for relatively low frequency, high power sound emission. It is one of the popular transducer configurations for SONAR applications. The transducer consists of piezoceramic rings stacked between a head mass and a tail mass which are connected by a central bolt. This example shows how to incorporate the effect of a pre-tension in the bolt. The bolt geometry is ...

Poroelastic Waves with Thermal and Viscous Losses (Biot-Allard Model)

In applications where pressure waves 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 room acoustics or lining materials in car cabins. Another example is porous materials in mufflers in the automotive industry. In many cases these materials can be modeled using the Poroacoustic ...

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.
