Modeling Vibration and Noise in a Gearbox

A gearbox is used to transfer power from an engine to its associated wheels or cogs, which can result in radiating noise to the surroundings. This is due to the transmission of undesired lateral and axial forces on the bearings and housing, while transmitting power from one shaft to the ... Read More

Mechanism Submerged in Fluid

This example illustrates the modeling of a multibody mechanism submerged in fluid. The mechanism considered here consists of two fins connected to a central rigid body through hinge joints. A transient fluid-structure interaction problem is solved to simulate the swimming behavior where ... Read More

Double-Pendulum Dynamics

This tutorial application demonstrates the modeling of a hinge joint between two bodies in COMSOL Multiphysics. Various nodes available for joints such as Constraints, Locking, Spring, Damper, Prescribed Motion, and Friction are also demonstrated. Many real structures can be ... Read More

Modeling Vibration in an Induction Motor

In the Vibration in an Induction Motor tutorial model, eddy currents are induced in the rotor by time-harmonic currents in the stator windings and rotation of the rotor. Induced currents in the rotor interact with the magnetic field that is produced by the coils to generate the driving ... Read More

Rotors Connected Through Helical Gears

In this tutorial model, learn how to model multiple rotors connected through helical gears using the Rotordynamics Module, an add-on product to the Structural Mechanics Module and COMSOL Multiphysics®. When modeling geared rotors, the presence of gears in the system induces the lateral ... Read More

Lumped Loudspeaker Driver Using a Lumped Mechanical System

Example of a moving-coil loudspeaker where lumped parameters represent the behavior of the electrical and mechanical components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented using the *Electric Circuit* interface. The ... Read More

Vibrations in a Compound Gear Train

This model simulates vibrations in a compound gear train. Spur gears, used to model the gear train, are mounted on rigid shafts. The shafts are supported by an elastic housing at both ends. The gear mesh is assumed to be elastic with varying stiffness, which is the source of vibration. A ... Read More

Noise Radiation by a Compound Gear Train

Predicting the noise radiation from a dynamic system gives designers insight into the behavior of moving mechanisms early in the design process. For example, consider a gearbox in which the change in the gear mesh stiffness causes vibrations. These vibrations are transmitted to the ... Read More

Three-Cylinder Reciprocating Engine

In this example, a dynamic analysis of a three-cylinder reciprocating engine is performed to investigate stresses generated during operation, thereby permitting identification of the critical components. Demand for high power output relative to the weight of the engine requires careful ... Read More

Dynamics of Helical Gears

This model illustrates the dynamics of helical gears. It is built using the gears functionality in the Multibody Dynamics interface in COMSOL Multiphysics. A transient study is performed to analyze the effect of constant gear mesh stiffness, varying gear mesh stiffness, and the ... Read More
