Acoustic-Structure Interaction

Application ID: 417


Liquid or gas acoustics coupled to structural objects such as membranes, plates or solids are important applications in many engineering fields.

This model is a general demonstration of an acoustic fluid phenomenon in 3D that is coupled to a solid object. The walls of the solid object are impacted by the acoustic pressure. The frequency response from the solid is calculated, which is then fed back to the acoustics domain so that the wave pattern can be analyzed. As such, the model becomes a good example of a scattering problem.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
