An experimental program has been developed, with the purpose of evaluating the reliability in building diagnosis and characterization of an integrated analysis of several parameters, associated with acoustic waves propagating through the material. The Direct Transmission Technique has been applied. In this paper we developed a numerical model using the Transient Acoustics-Piezoelectric ...

Acoustic wave propagation due to the breakage or slippage of reinforced wire in water-filled prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) attracts interest in non-destructive pipe testing. Current practice of acoustic emission (AE) detection and wire-break related events (WRE) recognition is based on field data analysis. This work deals with the theoretical investigation of WRE signal from ...

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, ...

The present article presents a method to redistribute the acoustic modes of a rectangular enclosure in the low frequency range using slit resonators. The objective of the present work is to compare different strategies of optimal design in order to determine the dimensions of the resonators. The method of the finite elements will be used to model the acoustic physical behavior of the room. In ...

Earthquakes have always been a threat to the safety of buildings, sometimes even causing fatality due collapse of the structure. Various methods have evolved in the recent past to control/reduce the response of a structure subjected to earthquake forces. One of the widely used passive control methods is Base Isolation System. This paper discusses the study of the response of the base isolated ...

Computational Acoustic Attenuation Performance of Helicoidal Resonators

W. Lapka
Poznan University of Technology
Poznan, Poland

This paper concerns the problem of obtaining proper acoustic attenuation performance through computations. COMSOL was used to solve acoustics systems with helicoidal resonators in the frequency domain. Based on the studies of insertion and transmission loss of helicoidal resonators, a high consistency between the results obtained by numerical calculations with experimental measurements was ...

Analysis of the Acoustic Response of a Railroad Bridge

Aging infrastructure requires frequent inspections to assess their structural integrity. However, the large amount of existing infrastructure, and the distance between these structures present significant challenges to inspectors. Acoustics-based technologies represent a simple, and relatively inexpensive, technique to monitor the integrity of a structure. To develop these techniques, designers ...

Glass Plates Noise Transmission Suppression by Means of Distributed Piezoelectric Composite Actuators Shunted by an Active Circuit

Glass windows represent a virtual sound source for buildings interior. It is very easy to make them vibrate by action of incident acoustic pressure wave. Therefore, non-negligible part of the wave is transmitted through the window. We propose and simulate a method based on the change of mechanical properties of the plate using flexible piezoelectric Macro Fiber Composite actuators distributed on ...

Vibration and Acoustic Analysis of a Trussed Railroad Bridge under Moving Loads

R. Costley[1], H. Diaz-Alvarez[1], M. McKenna[1], A. Miller[1]
[1]U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Vicksburg, MS, USA

Two finite element models have been developed to investigate the acoustic radiation from a Pratt truss train bridge. The first model was a time dependent structural model that determined the vibration response of the structure due to two wheels, representing a single axle, moving across the bridge at constant speed. This model was expanded to include multiple axles to represent a locomotive. The ...
