Modeling Loudspeakers Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Webinar - Archived
If you want to learn how to model loudspeakers, tune into this webinar for members of ALMA International. You will find out how you can use the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to design and characterize loudspeaker drivers and enclosures as well as listening environments.
In this webinar, you will learn how to compute quantities such as acoustic and electric impedance, and sound pressure level (SPL) in the near and far field. We will also present important postprocessing tools like the directivity plot. Then, you will get a live demo of a detailed electromagnetic analysis of a loudspeaker driver and an acoustic-structure interaction study of its mechanical and acoustic performance. To conclude, you will learn how parts of the driver can be lumped and modeled by their Thiele/Small (T/S) parameters as well as how to model the driver inside an enclosure to see how that influences its sound output.
At the end of the webinar, you can ask questions during the Q&A session.
