The growth of the electronics industry demand better components for the electronic systems. Such components need to be improve to keep up with the evolution of the digital era. The loudspeaker design has not been changed for almost a century [1-5]. The acoustic transducer is the last analogue component needed for a true digital audio system. We want to validate the feasibility of using an ...

The technology involved in high performance ultrasound imaging probes needs a reliable model to help in new projects development and performance simulations. To achieve a useful model, it is necessary to use correct values for all material parameters involved in the electro-acoustical performances of the piezoelectric material, but unfortunately some of these parameters are known only with high ...
Scale-up Design of Ultrasound Irradiator for Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Simulation
The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA
Ultrasound is a promising green technology for the advanced oxidation process (AOP) since it adds no chemicals to the treated water. In this paper, COMSOL Multiphysics® was used as a tool to design and characterize an ultrasound irradiator with multi-stepped configuration, which aims to overcome disadvantages of typical irradiators and to enhance contaminant removal in large-scale water ...

Silicon based MEMS have wide applications in under water sensors. This work aims one such applications, hydrophone. Hydrophone detects the pressure variations of acoustic signals and noise in the water and produces an output voltage proportional to the pressure. Here the attempt is made to design and simulate MEMS based underwater acoustic sensor whose working is based on piezoresistive physics. ...

This paper describes the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation and the test of a low-frequency (500Hz) sound source for long-range acoustic communications. This design uses innovative carbon-fiber composite materials.To meet the demand for the frequency range the doubly resonant organ pipe resonator was suggested. A multi-resonant system usually needs a precise, complicated adjustment of its ...

使用 COMSOL Multiphysics® 仿真轴对称扬声器一般可采用 2D 轴对称模型，但在这种坐标系下无法建立扬声器测量中常用的矩形障板模型，而选择计算安装在无限大障板上扬声器的声特性，其仿真计算结果又与常见的标准障板上的测量结果在中低频段存在较大差异。 为了使无限大障板上的仿真结果与标准障板（或其它有限大障板）上的测量结果相一致，提出一种方法，利用 COMSOL 软件的 Parameter Sweep 功能，通过多次进行 2D 轴对称的电磁场、结构力学和声学三场耦合的扬声器仿真计算及相应后处理，得到安装在有限大障板上的扬声器正前方的声特性。 采用该方法可在较短时间内比较准确地计算得到安装在任意形状的有限大障板上的扬声器的声压级和谐波失真等特性。如图1和图2所示，采用该方法得到的声压级和总谐波失真曲线（红色），与测量结果（黑色）趋势和细节都比较一致。 ...

An acoustic energy harvesting mechanism at low frequency (~200 Hz) using lead zirconate titanate (PZT) piezoelectric cantilever plates placed inside a quarter-wavelength straight-tube resonator has been studied using COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3 and compared with experimental data. When the tube resonator is excited by an incident wave at its acoustic eigenfrequency, an amplified acoustic resonant ...

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 ...

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 ...
