Shape Optimization of an Acoustic Demultiplexer with 4 Ports
Application ID: 73611
A demultiplexer is a device that directs different frequency bands to different outputs. In this tutorial model, we will design a demultiplexer by performing shape optimization on all initial circular boundaries in a sonic crystal (phononic crystal) configuration. The model uses shape optimization with Helmholtz regularization together with a MinMax formulation for the power ratio of the three output ports.
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.
