Radiation from a Baffled Piston
Application ID: 10137
An axisymmetric model of a rigid piston in an infinite baffle is used to exemplify the Exterior Field Calculation feature of the Acoustics Module. The radiation results provided by the COMSOL Multiphysics® software are compared to analytical results for the on-axis radiation pattern (as a function of distance), the spatial far-field response, and the total radiated power. The transition from near-field to far-field is smooth and continuous.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
