Angle Beam Nondestructive Testing

Angle beam ultrasonic units are used for nondestructive testing (NDT) of solid objects, such as metal pipes. They are especially useful for detecting flaws in and around welding areas, such as pores, small cracks, lack of fusion, etc. Angle beam NDT is often used where the straight beam ... Read More

Chamber Music Hall

In this model, the acoustics of the Small Hall in the Konzerthaus Berlin is simulated with ray tracing. A full study of the room is performed in 1/3-octave bands with 10 pairs of source-receiver positions. The room acoustic parameters are derived from the calculated impulse responses, ... Read More

Piezoacoustic Transducer

A piezoelectric transducer can be used either to transform an electric current to an acoustic pressure field or, the opposite, to produce an electric current from an acoustic field. These devices are generally useful for applications that require the generation of sound in air and ... Read More

Loudspeaker Driver — Frequency-Domain Analysis

This example shows how to model a loudspeaker driver of the dynamic cone type, common for low and medium frequencies. The analysis is carried out in the frequency domain and thus represents the linear behavior of the driver. The model analysis includes the total electric impedance and ... Read More

Acoustic–Structure Interaction

Liquid or gas acoustics coupled to structural objects such as membranes, plates or solids are important applications in many engineering fields. This model is a general demonstration of an acoustic fluid phenomenon in 3D that is coupled to a solid object. The walls of the solid object ... Read More

Simple Thermoacoustic Engine

This is a model of a simple thermoacoustic engine that includes a thermal stack to convert thermal energy to acoustic energy. The model is set up using two approaches: 1) Using a linear perturbation (acoustic) approaches solving the fluid motion with the Thermoviscous Acoustics, ... Read More

Ultrasound Flowmeter with Generic Time-of-Flight Configuration

Knowing the velocity of a moving fluid is important in all cases where the fluid is used to transport material or energy. In the time-of-flight or transit-time method for determining flow velocity, an ultrasonic signal is transmitted across the main flow in a pipe to noninvasively ... Read More

Generation of Lamb Waves for Nondestructive Inspection of Plate Specimens

Numerical modeling of Lamb waves, which belong to guided waves, is essential for the analysis and design of the structural health monitoring (SHM) systems for long range ultrasonic testing. The design of an SHM system based on guided waves consists of two main parts. In the first place, ... Read More

Porous Absorber

This is a model of acoustic absorption by a porous acoustic open cell foam. In porous materials the sound propagates in a network of small interconnected pores. Because the dimensions of the pores are small, losses occur due to thermal conduction and viscous friction. Acoustic foams are ... Read More

Ultrasonic Flowmeter with Piezoelectric Transducers

Ultrasonic flowmeters determine the velocity of a fluid flowing through a pipe by sending an ultrasonic signal across the flow at a skew angle. When there is no flow, the transmitting time between the transmitter and the receiver is the same for the signals sent in the upstream and ... Read More
