The Application Gallery features COMSOL Multiphysics® tutorial and demo app files pertinent to the electrical, structural, acoustics, fluid, heat, and chemical disciplines. You can use these examples as a starting point for your own simulation work by downloading the tutorial model or demo app file and its accompanying instructions.
Search for tutorials and apps relevant to your area of expertise via the Quick Search feature. To download the MPH-files, log in or create a COMSOL Access account that is associated with a valid COMSOL license. Note that many of the examples featured here can also be accessed via the Application Libraries that are built into the COMSOL Multiphysics® software and available from the File menu.
This model demonstrates how to use the Control Function feature to perform shape optimization on a rectangular horn for an improved on axis response. The results of the initial design are exported to a new component via a Filter dataset. Further, the off-axis spatial response is improved ... Read More
This model presents two examples of topology optimization of the magnetic circuit of a loudspeaker driver. A first optimization is used to find the design of a nonlinear iron pole piece and top plate that maximize the BL factor at the resting position (small displacements), while ... Read More
This model shows how to include the nonlinear (large signal) behavior of certain lumped components in a simplified loudspeaker analysis. The mechanical and electrical system is modeled using an equivalent electrical circuit. The large signal compliance CMS(x) and force factor BL(x) are ... Read More
This is a model of a moving-coil loudspeaker where a lumped parameter analogy represents the behavior of the electrical and mechanical speaker components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented by an Electric Circuit ... Read More
Learn how to use the Acoustic-Shell Interaction interface in this tutorial example of a thin vibrating membrane set in an infinite baffle. This example demonstrates how to model the acoustic interaction between a vibrating membrane and the surrounding air. In order to focus on the ... Read More
This tutorial demonstrates a full electro-vibroacoustic analysis of a conceptual electrostatic speaker driver, composed of thin conducting plastic diaphragm residing between two perforated metal sheets called grids or stators. When an audio signal is applied to the grids (out of phase), ... Read More
The Bessel panel is a way to arrange a number of loudspeakers so that the angular sound distribution resembles that of a single speaker. This model combines five Bessel panels in the same pattern to approximate a purely radial sound field. The speakers are driven with different ... Read More
In this tutorial, the acoustic properties of a wax guard are analyzed. A wax guard is a small perforated mesh used to protect the receiver (the miniature loudspeaker in a hearing aid) used for receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) or receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids. Because of the very small ... Read More
Headphones are closely coupled to the ear, and so it is not possible to measure their sensitivity in a classical acoustic free-field setup used for loudspeakers. The measurement requires the use of artificial heads and ears to accurately represent the usage conditions. This model shows ... Read More
Designing structures and open spaces with respect to sound quality is important for concert halls, outdoor environments, and even the rooms of a house. Simulating acoustics in the high-frequency limit, where the wavelength is smaller than the geometrical features, can be done with ray ... Read More
