One-Family House Acoustics
Application ID: 20169
This model shows an application of the Acoustic Diffusion Equation physics interface. The acoustics in a two story one-family house consisting of 10 rooms is analyzed.
The steady state sound pressure level (acoustic energy density) distribution is analyzed for a sound source located in the main living room. The reverberation time T60 of the different coupled rooms is then studied using the eigenvalue solver. The transient energy decay (curves) is also found using a time dependent study. Finally, the sound pressure level radiated outside the house is determined with a coupling to the Ray Acoustics interface.
Wall absorption parameters, transmission losses, and material parameters are values assumed to be realistic for the model.
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.
