Eigenmodes in a Muffler
Application ID: 8547
In this model, compute the propagating modes in the chamber of an automotive muffler. The geometry is a cross-section of the chamber in the Absorptive Muffler example.
The model’s purpose is to study the shape of the propagating modes and to find their cut-off frequencies. As discussed in the documentation for the Absorptive Muffler, some of the modes significantly affect the damping of the muffler at frequencies above their cut-off. In this model, you study modes with cut-off frequencies up to 1500 Hz.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Acoustics Module
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.
