Acoustic materials - integrate in the

Hi,
i have a problem with the material library.
I make some acoustic simulations with absorbing materials. There is the possibility to use the Delany & Bazley model in the acoustic module but in the theory of acoustic materials there is others models more accurate than this.
I compute on matlab the celerity and density (complex number) corresponding to the materials which are record in a text file. Of course, the density and celerity are frequency dependent.
Is it possible in comsol to read the text file with the data to use them in the simulation?
Thank for your answer.
Jean-Philippe

Re: Acoustic materials - integrate in the

Hi,
the Miki model has been added in the newer versions of the software.
Anyway, from the documentation, I can understand that the Miki model is the one which simply modifies the Delany Bazley coefficients (Miki Y., Acoustical properties of porous materials - Modifications of Delany-Bazley models, J. Acoust. Soc. Jpn (E). 11(1), 1990, pp. 19-24), often called the "D-B-Miki model", and not the one described in Miki Y., Acoustical properties of porous materials - Generalizations of empirical models, J. Acoust. Soc. Jpn (E). 11(1), 1990, pp. 25-28, usually called the "Miki model".
It would be nice and more clear if the actual "Miki" model would be renamed "Delany-Bazley-Miki", and it would also be nice if more modern modifications of the model, like the Komatsu one (T. Komatsu. 2008. Improvement of the Delany-Bazley and Miki models for fibrous sound-absorbing materials. Acoust. Sci. & Tech., 29(2), 121-129, perso.ensait.fr/vromanp/docume.../publications/Komatsu-2007.pdf) would be added.
