Multiphysics Simulations in the Ultrasonic Industry

P.A. Colombo[1]
[1]DepQuest, Dalmine, Italy

This work focuses on the application of multiphysics finite element simulations in the manufacturing and application of high power ultrasonic machines. Industries providing big power ultrasonic solutions as in cleaning, welding, sonochemistry and cutting fields, already apply the finite element simulation approach, in the structural mechanics flavor, in the design and optimization of ultrasonic ...

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 ...

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 ...

Design and Characterization of MEMS Based Accelerometers for Various Applications - new

R. Singh[1], M. Singh[2]
[1]National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal, Karnataka, India
[2]Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Today, MEMS based accelerometers are used in a variety of applications. To name a few, they are used in safety systems in automobiles, it has added a new dimension to miniaturization of devices, it has replaced traditional piezoelectric accelerometers, which were big and difficult to use. For its various applications, differing bandwidth (operating frequency range) and amplitude of vibration are ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
