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 Streaming in a Microchannel Cross Section

Recent advances in the fabrication of microfluidic systems require handling of live cells and other micro particles as well as mixing. All this can, for example, be achieved using acoustic radiation forces and the viscous drag from the streaming flow. Streaming: Due to the nonlinear terms in the Navier-Stokes equations, harmonic perturbation of the flow will lead to a net time-averaged flow ...

Sedan Interior Acoustics

This is a model of the acoustics inside a sedan, that is inside a typical hard-top family car. The model sets up sources at loudspeaker locations as well as impedance conditions to model soft absorbing surfaces (seats and carpet). The model results in plots of the pressure, sound pressure level, and intensity inside the car. The frequency response at given points inside the cabin are also ...

Absorptive Muffler with Shells

This model describes the pressure wave propagation in a muffler for an internal combustion engine. The purpose of the model is to show how to analyze both inductive and resistive damping in pressure acoustics as well as coupling the fluid to the surrounding elastic shell structure of the muffler. Finally, the eigenmodes of a pure structural problem is analyzed and the modes compared to peaks ...

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.

Vibrations of a Disk Backed by an Air-Filled Cylinder

The vibration modes of a thin or thick circular disc are well known, and it is possible to compute the corresponding eigenfrequencies to arbitrary precision from a series solution. The same is true for the acoustic modes of an air-filled cylinder with perfectly rigid walls. A more interesting question to ask is: What happens if the cylinder is sealed in one end not by a rigid wall but by a thin ...

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.

Acoustic-Structure Interaction with a Perfectly Matched Layer (PML)

This small tutorial model shows how to set up a model with a solid mechanics and a pressure acoustics domain including a common perfectly matched layer (PML). The PML is used to model an open or infinite domain for both the elastic waves and the pressure waves. Two configurations of PMLs exist (this model describes the first case which is also the most difficult to handle): 1. One PML should ...

Test Bench Car Interior

Sound is generated by a point source located in the wall of this test bench car interior. The sound pressure level response at a point of measurement is investigated for a range of frequencies and four different mesh resolutions. The model is first solved with the default direct solvers. Finally, it is shown how to set up an iterative solver which is efficient for large problems and the finest ...

Acoustic Reflections off a Water-Sediment Interface

This model determines the reflection coefficient of plane acoustic waves, at different frequencies and at different angles of incidence, off a water-sediment interface. The ability of the Poroelasitc Waves interface to model the coupled acoustic and elastic wave in any porous substance (Biot's theory) is used to describe the water-sediment system. The model results are in good agreement with ...
