On The Use of a Diffusion Equation Model for Sound Energy Flow Prediction in Acoustically Coupled Spaces

Y. Jing, and N. Xiang
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA

This paper studies sound energy flows through an aperture across two coupled spaces using a diffusion equation model. The so-called double sloped sound energy decay is believed to be caused by the sound energy exchange through the aperture coupling the two rooms. The room diffusion equation is first solved by COMSOL, then the time dependent energy flow is visualized via COMSOL arrow plotting, ...

Acoustic Attenuation Performance Of Helicoidal Resonator Due To Distance Change From Different Cross-Sectional Elements Of Cylindrical Duct

W. Łapka
Poznań University of Technology, Poznań, Poland

This work presents acoustic attenuation performance of helicoidal resonator due to distance change from different cross-sectional elements of cylindrical duct. The helicoidal resonator properties are described mainly in in infinite long cylindrical duct. For practical applications it is important to know the limits of use of this solution. This paper describes how the helicoidal resonator should ...

Can the Drumhead be Decomposed from Spectra? - An Application for the Chesapeake Bay

K. McIlhany[1], and R. Malek-Madani[2]
[1]Physics Department, United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, USA
[2]Mathematics Department, United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, MD, USA

In 1966, mathematician Mark Kac proposed the question "Can One Hear the Shape of a Drum?" in an article for American Mathematical Monthly. In attempting to resolve the Chesapeake Bay from an eigenfunctional approach, a one-to-one mapping of this famous problem has been identified. The quote above will re-write to "Can One Hear the Shape of a Drum from Multiple Point-Sampled Spectra?". This ...

The Effect of Resistance on Rocket Injector Acoustics

C. J. Morgan [1], S. R. Fischbach [1],
[1] Jacobs ESSSA Group, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL, USA

This study evaluates the effect of injector resistance on the mode shapes and complex eigenfrequencies of an injector/combustion chamber system by defining a high Mach-flow, potential flow form of the convective wave equation in the Coefficient Form PDE Mathematics interface. Background steady-state flow conditions are determined through a NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in-house fluid ...

Investigation of Scattering Effects in Colloidal Systems

D. M. Forrester [1],
[1] Loughborough University, Loughborough, United Kingdom

When the particles in a colloid come close to each other, multiple scattering in ultrasonic beams is no longer negligible and crowded particle effects emerge. The presence of each particle affects the scattering of all others, leading to coupling effects. We investigate the interaction of a range of sizes of particles, arranged periodically or randomly (in medium to high ultrasonic frequency ...

Simulation of Active Underwater Cylindrical Acoustic Antenna

R. Lardat [1],
[1] Thales Underwater Systems, Sophia Antipolis, France

The simulation of a large acoustic cylindrical antenna made of numerous identical transducers is very often out of reach in terms of computational cost. Therefore the usual design procedure consist in optimizing the transducer standing alone, either in free field arrangement or sitting on a hard baffle. Once the antenna is produced, one can very often see problems arising on the antenna response ...

Beam Structure As an Acoustic Wave Sensor: A Study of the Effect of Sensor Design on Its Sensitivity to Noise

F. Akasheh[1], A. Biddle[1], W.S. Shepard Jr.[2], and B.B.B. Zhang[2]
[1]Tuskegee University, Tuskegee, AL, USA
[2]University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL, USA

The detection and identification of the location of a sound source is commonly done using arrays of microphones. A recent new alternative approach has been proposed which involves the use of continuous structures, such as beams or plates, as acoustic wave sensors. The sound wave impinging on the surface of the structure causes it to vibrate and the measured surface displacements can then be used ...
