An Acoustical Finite Element Model of Perforated Elements

P. Bonfiglio[1][2] and F. Pompoli[1][2]
[1]Materiacustica S.r.l., Ferrara, Italy
[2]Engineering Department, University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy

The present work deals with a numerical investigation of resonating systems used for noise control applications. In literature one can find analytical models based on fluiddynamics concepts for evaluating losses occurring across the holes of the perforates. In the paper an acoustical formulation based on the equivalent dissipative fluid approach will be analyzed. It will be firstly applied to ...

[2]Università di Roma, Tor Vergata, Italy

The otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are acoustic signals emitted by the inner ear as a consequence of the activity of a nonlinear feedback mechanism capable of amplifying the signal near to the hearing threshold level. The otoacoustic emissions can be used as an acoustic imaging of the cochlear functionality. They are used in clinics for screening purposes but due to the extreme variability ...

Support-Q Optimisation of a Trapped Mode Beam Resonator - new

T. H. Hanley[1], H. T. D. Grigg[1], B. J. Gallacher[1]
[1]Newcastle University, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK

Introducing a disorder into a finite periodic oscillatory system induces the presence of a 'trapped mode': a mode in which the displacement field is localised to the region of the disorder. A main inhibitor to MEMS resonators achieving a high quality (Q) factor is energy radiation through the support to the substrate. The trapped modes present a way to tune this to a minimal value. An initial ...

Simulation of Acoustical Transfer Paths for Active Noise Control

L. Fromme [1], J. Waßmuth [1], D. Wehmeier [1],
[1] Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, Bielefeld, Germany

The knowledge of the acoustical transfer paths in active noise control systems is very important for the performance of the system. Unfortunately, simulation is challenging since even simple configurations require comprehensive experience in physics and modeling. Two test setups were chosen for basic investigations on modeling, simulation and validation. The first results presented here are ...

Compression Driver Simulation Including Air Damping in Phase Plug

R.Christensen, and U. Skov
iCapture ApS
Gadstrup, Denmark

A compression driver is a certain type of electrodynamic loudspeaker which has a phase plug with slits in front of the diaphragm. The slits are narrow enough that the so-called viscothermal effects are of significant importance. In this paper a 2D axisymmetric finite element model of a commercial compression driver is established where the vibroacoustic behavior can be evaluated. The ...

Feed-forward/Feed-backward Mechanical Amplification in the Mouse Cochlea

[1]Lab of Biomedical physics, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
[2]Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, USA

Sound vibrations are collected from the external environment by the eardrum and are guided to the basilar membrane in the cochlea. Pressure differences in the two scalae of the cochlea result in a traveling wave on the basilar membrane. The tiny displacements are detected by the deflection of thousands of hair cells, situated along this membrane. It is hypothesized that some 3/4 of these hair ...

Introduction - The ability to precisely manipulate fluid and particles at microscales is one of the essential requirements for various lab-on-a-chip applications such as drug diagnostics, chemical synthesis etc.[1] Recently, the nonlinear interaction of surface acoustic waves (SAW) with fluid at microscales has been utilized to achieve this aim. When surface acoustic waves interact with fluid ...

Sound Propagation through Circular Ducts with Spiral Element Inside

W. Lapka
Poznan University of Technology, Poland

This paper examines a sound propagation without airflow through circular ducts with spiral element inside. Models are numerically computed in three-dimensions. The spiral element in the duct is a newly analyzed acoustical element, geometrically similar to the well-known Archimedes screw. It can be applied significantly in ducted systems, such as ventilation, air-conditioning and heat ...

Modeling of a Jecklin Disk for Stereophonic Recordings

G. McRobbie[1]
[1]University of the West of Scotland, Paisley, Renfrewshire, UK

The Jecklin Disk is a sound absorbing disk placed between two omnidirectional microphones. It is used to recreate some of the frequency-response, time and amplitude variations human listeners’ experience, but in such a way that the recordings also produce a useable stereo image through loudspeakers. This paper presents a finite element model able to simulate the effects on sound propagation ...
