Axisymmetric Condenser Microphone with Electrical Lumping

This model is that of a simple axisymmetric condenser microphone. The model includes all the relevant physics and determines the sensitivity of the specific microphone geometry and material parameters. The model uses a lumped approximation for the electric small signal problem but solves a full FE model for the acoustic-mechanical system. The quiescent (zero point) problem is solved fully using ...

Piezoacoustic Transducer

A piezoelectric transducer can be used either to transform an electric current to an acoustic pressure field or, the opposite, to produce an electric current from an acoustic field. These devices are generally useful for applications that require the generation of sound in air and liquids. Examples of such applications include phased array microphones, ultrasound equipment, inkjet droplet ...

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 distribution. ...

Energy Conservation with Thermoacoustics

This small tutorial model studies energy conservation in a small conceptual test setup. The model has an inlet and outlet and a Helmholtz resonator with a very narrow neck. The acoustics in the narrow neck are modeled with Thermoacoustic for a detailed analysis of the thermal and viscous losses. In order to study and verify energy conservation, the model compares the total dissipated energy in ...

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 linearized Potential Flow physics interface in the Acoustics Module describes acoustic ...

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 ...

Loudspeaker Driver

This is a model of a loudspeaker of the dynamic cone driver type, common for low and medium frequencies. The model analysis includes the total electric impedance and the on-axis sound pressure level at a nominal driving voltage, as functions of the frequency. The model starts out with the Small-Signal analysis from the AC/DC Module to compute the driving force and the blocked voice coil ...

Surface Acoustic Wave Gas Sensor

A surface acoustic wave (SAW) is an acoustic wave propagating along the surface of a solid material. Its amplitude decays rapidly, often exponentially, through the depth of the material. SAWs are utilized in many kinds of electronic components, including filters, oscillators, and sensors. SAW devices typically apply electrodes to a piezoelectric material to convert an electric signal into a ...

Absorptive Muffler

The sound level from a car depends to a great extent of the quality of the muffler. Over the years, researchers in the car industry have struggled to produce mufflers that are efficient from both an acoustic and an environmental perspective. This model describes the pressure wave propagation in a muffler for an internal combustion engine. The model also shows how to analyze both inductive and ...

Vibrating Plate in a 2D Viscous Parallel Plate Flow

This is a small 2D demonstration model that couples the linearized Navier-Stokes Frequency Domain, the Solid Mechanics, and the Creeping Flow physics interfaces to model the vibrations of a plate located in a 2D viscous parallel plate flow. This type of model is used to model fluid structure interaction (FSI) in the frequency domain. For simplicity the flow is assumed to be a Creeping flow. ...
