Despite of the existing successful clinical applications, however, the interaction, i.e. artificial sensing, between the robot and the patient is still very limited. With the help of various cameras, vision is almost the only feeling that a robot can have. In order to imitate the human skin, various signals e.g., the strength of pressure, change of strength, speed and acceleration should be ...

While musical instruments often rely on a body which resonates on purposefully to amplify the vibration produced by a string or a membrane, such as in a violin or a guitar, loudspeaker cabinets should not contribute at all to the total sound radiation, but aim instead to be a perfectly rigid box which encloses the drive units in charge to transform the electrical signal at their terminal into ...

Today, low noise is a mandatory feature for power transformers to comply with customer specifications and environmental regulations. Therefore, it is crucial to develop sound prediction tools with sufficient accuracy to avoid overkill margins in design and costly modifications after transformer completion. The paper will focus on core noise which is a typical multiphysics phenomenon involving ...

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is used as a noninvasive technique of tissue heating and ablation for different medical treatments. This paper presents a quantitative comparison of HIFU acoustic fields experimentally obtained versus simulated acoustic fields. Acoustic field characterization was realized in two HIFU transducers using water as a propagation medium. Also, simulations were ...

For our simulation we used the Piezoelectric Devices interface. The structure was set with (clamped) fix constraint boundaries to both ends. The bottom electrode was set to be the ground for the electrostatic physics and the top electrode was set to be a Terminal with potential of 10V. A parametric sweep study was set to change the geometry, the parameters to change was the hole diameter (Holed) ...

Axisymmetric acoustic waves propagating along buried water pipes have been investigated by FEM and experimentally. Universal dispersion relations of the fundamental mode were obtained as a function of the standard dimension ratio SDR and of the material surrounding the pipe (soil, air). At low frequency there exists little dispersion and the “dc” phase velocity of the leak noise is independent ...

Combustion instability modeling of Solid Rocket Motors (SRM) remains a topic of active research. Many rockets display violent fluctuations in pressure, velocity, and temperature originating from the complex interactions between the combustion process, acoustics, and steady-state gas dynamics. Recent advances in defining the energy transport of disturbances within steady flow-fields have been ...

In this paper, a free membrane is used as a receiver to increase the capacitance and therefore the resolution of the flow meter. For the current application, from the wavelength of sound wave in soft tissue (c= 1540 m/s) the resolution was calculated to be 0.48 mm. This gives the first Eigen frequency of the capacitive structure according to which the poly silicon membrane was designed. After ...

Energy harvesting from environmental vibration nowadays is feasible because of natural oscillations like that caused by air or liquid flow and by exhalation or the heartbeat of a human body. This vibration frequency is typically low (in order of less than 1 kHz). Accordingly, low-frequency vibration based energy harvesting systems are an important research topic; these systems can be used for ...

A 2D axisymmetric model was considered in order to evaluate the propagation paths of the ultrasonic waves generated inside an aluminum plate sample due to a rapid thermal expansion produced by laser pulse. Laser Doppler Vibrometer is used to experimentally validate the numerical results of the wave propagation in the material. The presented numerical model is able to identify directivity ...
