Shape Optimization of an Acoustic Demultiplexer
Application ID: 71971
This model shows how shape optimization can be used to design an acoustic demultiplexer. A demultiplexer is a data distributing device, in this case it will distribute acoustic energy. The geometry consists of a circular domain with one input port and two output ports. The domain has the structure of a sonic crystal, it has 19 circular cavities which are deformed such that the energy goes to one output port for one frequency band and to another output port for another frequency band.
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.
