[2]TRS Technologies, State College, PA, USA

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a modern tool for exploration of new horizons in science, technology and engineering. Different computer software such as ANSYS, ABACUS, PZFLEX and COMSOL Multiphysics® based on FEA are used for modeling and simulation of acoustic phenomena, for design of new and optimization and improvement of existing acoustic engineering systems. This work presents application ...

Ultrasonic Beam Steering in Isotropic Media

S. Jeyaraman, B. Ganesan, and M. Kumar
GE Global Research, Bangalore

In this paper, a numerical model for time-domain ultrasound plane wave propagation for a desired angle is presented. The propagating angle is a function of the distance and the time-delay between the individual elements, and the propagating sound speed. In this model, the control parameter 'time' is used for steering the beam at the desired angle. We present an application of the proposed ...

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 ...

A problem of damage prediction in aircraft structure and its non-destructive evaluation is very important for aircraft structural health assessment. The analysis of the features of direct impact of thin-walled laminate component of aircraft was performed by COMSOL Multiphysics software. Mainly the GFRC and CFRC laminates were selected in form either thin separate plate or sandwich structure. The ...

Dynamic Characterization and Mechanical Simulation of Cantilevers for Electromechanical Vibration Energy Harvesting

N. Alcheick[1], H. Nesser[1], H. Debeda[1], C. Ayela[1], I. Dufour [1]
[1]Univ. Bordeaux, IMS Lab, Pessac, France

Energy harvesting from ambient vibrations has become an interesting topic for powering wireless sensor networks. Resonant microdevices based on MEMS have become of central importance at low frequency. The power produced at resonance is at least one order of magnitude larger than off frequency power since the largest strain is obtained at resonance. In order to obtain large strain for efficient ...

COMSOL Analysis of Acoustic Streaming and Microparticle Acoustophoresis

We have simulated the ultrasound-induced acoustophoretic motion of microparticles suspended in an aqueous solution. The full first-order thermoviscous acoustics equations have been implented on a rectangular microfluidic 2D domain excited with an ultrasound field tuned to resonance near 2 MHz. The micrometer-thin but crucial viscous boundary layers at the rigid walls have been fully resolved. The ...

Mapping Local Cavitation Events in High Intensity Ultrasound Fields

V. Raman [1], A. Abbas[2], and S.C. Joshi[2]
[1] Indian Institute of Technology, Madras
[2] Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

The linear acoustic pressure field is obtained by solving the homogenous Helmholtz equation using COMSOL Multiphysics. The pressure field is used to calculate the collapse pressure of the transient cavitation bubbles by using the cavity cluster approach. The regions where the local pressure exceeds the Blake threshold are potential regions of transient cavitation events. The ultrasound ...

Scale-up Design of Ultrasound Irradiator for Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) Using COMSOL Multiphysics® Simulation

Z. Wei[1]
[1]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 ...

Modeling and Testing of Carbon-Fiber Doubly-Resonant Underwater Acoustic Transducer

A. Morozov[1]
[1]Teledyne Technologies Inc., Falmouth, MA, USA

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 ...

Development of a Reactive Silencer for Turbo Compressors

J. Smeulers[1], N. Gonzalez Diez[1]
[1]TNO, Delft, The Netherlands

Turbo compressors can generate high frequency tonal noise, causing nuisance in the environment. As the noise is radiated from the piping, a silencer is installed between the compressor and the pipe system. Commonly an absorption silencer is applied, which is a vessel that contains acoustic absorption material. Due to high flow velocities and vibrations the absorption material may be blown out of ...
