Ultrasonic Car Parking Sensor
Application ID: 68041
This tutorial demonstrates how to compute the response of an ultrasonic car parking sensor transducer coupling Pressure Acoustics, Frequency Domain, Solid Mechanics, and Piezoelectric Materials. The far-field radiation pattern of the transducer is then used as a source for a Ray Acoustics model, investigating a given parking scenario. The coupling from FEM to ray tracing is performed using the built-in Release from Exterior Field Calculation feature.
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:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Acoustics Module and
- CAD Import Module and
- either the AC/DC Module, MEMS Module, Plasma Module, or Semiconductor Module
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.
