Energy Conservation with Thermoviscous Acoustics
Application ID: 26821
This small tutorial model studies energy conservation in a small conceptual test setup. The model has an inlet and outlet (modeled using ports) and a Helmholtz resonator with a very narrow neck. The acoustics in the narrow neck are modeled with Thermoviscous Acoustic for a detailed analysis of the thermal and viscous losses.
In order to study and verify energy conservation, the model compares the total dissipated energy in the acoustic boundary layer to the total input minus output power of the system at the ports. The two agree.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
