Eigenmodes in a Muffler

Application ID: 8547

In this model, compute the propagating modes in the chamber of an automotive muffler. The geometry is a cross-section of the chamber in the Absorptive Muffler example.

The model’s purpose is to study the shape of the propagating modes and to find their cut-off frequencies. As discussed in the documentation for the Absorptive Muffler, some of the modes significantly affect the damping of the muffler at frequencies above their cut-off. In this model, you study modes with cut-off frequencies up to 1500 Hz.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
