This paper concerns the problem of obtaining proper acoustic attenuation performance through computations. COMSOL was used to solve acoustics systems with helicoidal resonators in the frequency domain. Based on the studies of insertion and transmission loss of helicoidal resonators, a high consistency between the results obtained by numerical calculations with experimental measurements was ...

Stethoscope is in use for more than 200 years for medical diagnostics, especially for auscultation. Recently, the unprecedented growth in mobile technology revived the use of stethoscope for Telehealthcare. Digital or electronic stethoscopes are increasingly researched for use in Telehealthcare. This paper mainly focuses on the acoustical and multiphysics design aspects of the stethoscope for ...

Analytical solutions to the problem of wave scattering from three dimensional structures such as spheres have been studied extensively in the past. However, these solutions are not flexible enough to be extended to wave scattering from complex geometries. We have developed a finite element model of acoustic wave propagation through spherical structures to solve the problem of highfrequency (20 ...

An experimental program has been developed, with the purpose of evaluating the reliability in building diagnosis and characterization of an integrated analysis of several parameters, associated with acoustic waves propagating through the material. The Direct Transmission Technique has been applied. In this paper we developed a numerical model using the Transient Acoustics-Piezoelectric ...

We introduce an extension for FEMLAB's acoustic mode which uses the ultra-weak variational formulation (UWVF) method for solving 3D Helmholtz problems. The solver, calledWaveller, uses FEMLAB's graphical interface for creating geometries, generating meshes, post-processing and visualization. However, the solution of acoustic wave problems using the UWVF significantly reduces the computational ...

High frequency side-scan sonar, to be fitted on a miniaturized submersible explorer, have been simulated and built. The purpose of this study is to see if COMSOL Multiphysics® can be used to predict the performance of the sonar, especially the beam width, setting the resolution of the system. Four models were created, from simple 2-D geometries to more complex 3-D models. The simulated beam ...

In this study we model the sound attenuation properties of a hearing aid earmold tube. The model includes thermoviscous acoustic effects and it couples structural vibrations to the external acoustic field. Moreover, the finite element domain is coupled at two boundaries with an electroacoustic model of a hearing aid and an acoustic 2-cc coupler.

In this paper, the underlying concept of electroacoustic absorbers is studied with the help of Comsol Multiphysics® Acoustics Module. Among the different ways to obtain variable acoustic properties on an electroacoustic transducer's voicing face, there is the shunting of the transducer's electrical input. With such shunt devices, the acoustic impedance that the transducer's membrane presents ...

The detection and identification of the location of a sound source is commonly done using arrays of microphones. A recent new alternative approach has been proposed which involves the use of continuous structures, such as beams or plates, as acoustic wave sensors. The sound wave impinging on the surface of the structure causes it to vibrate and the measured surface displacements can then be used ...

Although we know the physics inside a media where the sound waves propagate, determination of material\'s or structure\'s sound reduction index is not an easy task. The lack of good engineering solutions proves the point. The only reliable way to calculate the sound reduction index is to carry out an experiment.Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a mathematical model that can ...
