Computing Transient Sound Pressure Levels in COMSOL®
Sound pressure level metrics are important to know when trying to make results from a transient simulation easier to interpret on a logarithmic scale. Learn how to compute 3 of these metrics here.
The Octave Band Plot for Acoustics Simulation
The Octave Band plot provides an easy and flexible way to represent any frequency response, transfer function, sensitivity curve, transmission loss, or insertion loss in your acoustics analyses.
How to Use the New Spatial FFT Feature for Applications in Optics
COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.0 includes the new Spatial FFT feature. Learn how this feature can be used in applications in optics here.
Designing Tidal Turbines That Are Safe for Marine Life
A guest blogger from Xi Engineering discusses how his organization is using acoustics simulation to study the impacts of tidal turbines on marine species.
Modeling Speaker Drivers: Which Coupling Feature to Use
Explore how to model 4 different speaker drivers, including moving-coil transducers, balanced armature receivers, piezoelectric drivers, and electrostatic drivers.
Modeling Piezoelectricity Using the Discontinuous Galerkin Method
COMSOL Multiphysics® version 6.0 introduced a feature for modeling piezoelectric devices that is more convenient than alternative methods. Here’s how to use it in your models.
Axisymmetric Solid Mechanics with a Twist
As of version 6.0, you can easily include circumferential displacements in 2D axisymmetric models using the Solid Mechanics interface. Check out one example here.
Validating an Acoustic Ray Tracing Simulation of a Chamber Music Hall
The well-known Konzerthaus Berlin theater boasts 3 separate halls: The Grand Hall, the Small Hall, and the modern Werner Otto Hall. Here, we explore the acoustics of the Small Hall with simulation.
