Loudspeaker Driver in a Vented Enclosure

This model of a boxed loudspeaker lets you apply a nominal driving voltage and extract the resulting sound pressure level in the outside room as a function of the frequency. The sensitivity, both on-axis and spatial, is determined as function of frequency. These are some of the most important design parameters for a loudspeaker. The electromagnetic properties of the driver are supplied from the ...

Instructions on how to create a radially polarized piezoelectric material in spherical ...

Brüel and Kjaer 4134 Condenser Microphone

This is a model of the Brüel and Kjær 4134 condenser microphone. The geometry and material parameters are those of the actual microphone. The modeled sensitivity level is compared to measurements performed on an actual microphone and shows good agreement. The membrane deformation, pressure, velocity, and electric field are also determined. The model is a true multiphysics problem that ...

Focused Ultrasound Induced Heating in Tissue Phantom

This model example shows how to model tissue heating induced by focused ultrasound. First, the stationary acoustic field in the water and the tissue are modeled to obtain the acoustic intensity distribution in the tissue. The absorbed acoustic energy is then calculated and used as the heat source for a Bioheat Transfer physics in the tissue domain in a time-dependent study simulating the ...

Acoustic Scattering Off an Ellipsoid

This is a tutorial model that illustrates the use of the scattered field formulation in acoustics. A solid object (here an ellipsoid) is hit by an incident plane wave field (background pressure field). The model solves for the scattered field. The model uses a PML and a far-field calculation is also added. The mesh is set up to enhance the PML and the far-field performance. ...

Flow Duct

The modeling of aircraft-engine noise is a central problem in the field of computational aeroacoustics. The acoustic field in a model of an axially symmetric aero-engine duct, generated by a noise source at the boundary, is computed and visualized. Results are presented for situations with as well as without a compressible irrotational background flow and for the cases of hard and lined duct ...
