Finite element (FE) modelling of ultrasonic propagation using COMSOL Multiphysics® simulations can be used to create images of waves. Unfortunately, in time-stepping solutions, it is possible for numerical instabilities to grow large and dominate the solution adversely. Any design of transducer that is based upon poorly-configured FE models is unlikely to perform as expected and will almost ...

In this paper, a model for numerically obtaining lamb wave modes and dispersion curves in plates is presented. It is shown that COMSOL Multiphysics can be employed to simulate the behavior of guided waves in dispersive plates, which is useful for NDE applications. A two dimensional steel plate (4x0.1 meters) is excited with a space-time impact point source. To model the point source, we use ...

We show in this paper that by careful design of the geometry of the resonators, complete bandgap with relatively low center frequency can be obtained for 2D and 3D Phononic Crystals with resonators. The generation of the bandgap is due to the local resonance of the unit cell. Spring-mass and spring-pendulum models are developed to predict the boundaries of the complete bandgap. The predicted ...

INTRODUCTION: Perfectly matched layers (PML) have been widely used for simulating wave propagation in unbounded media to effectively avoid spurious wave reflections from the computational domain boundaries. Time-domain PML formulations, especially for elastic waves, usually use a complex system of first-order equations. Compact second-order time-domain formulations are particularly desired ...

High-intensity discharge lamps will in the foreseeable future be important light sources despite a growing market share of LEDs. Cost and energy efficient high frequency (300 kHz) operation is hampered by the excitation of acoustic resonances inside the arc tube, which results in low frequency (10 Hz) light flicker. Our aim is to calculate the acoustic streaming velocity field, which is related ...

Induction motors, as any other industrial products, have to comply with various requirements on noise levels. Therefore, it is essential to use an appropriate prediction tool to verify and optimize the design of an induction motor with respect to the acoustic performances. The paper will focus on the prediction of the magnetic noise generated and radiated by a specific motor. The challenge is ...

The paper presents finite element simulation of a surface acoustic wave (SAW) linear motor. The function of SAW linear motor depends on the principle of friction drive provided by SAW propagating on a piezoelectric substrate. The SAW motor comprises of a slider driven by Rayleigh wave generated on a piezoelectric stator using an interdigital transducer (IDT) fabricated on surface of the stator. ...

In this work, we seek to simulate SAWs for a better understanding and to benchmark the currently available cloud computing possibilities of COMSOL Multiphysics® software. By using the MEMS module we demonstrate 3D models with reduced geometry to achieve principle information about the wavefield. For a benchmark, a high-speed workstation with limited memory (RAM) is compared to the most potent ...
