Introduction: Improving the capability of nondestructive evaluations requires the analysis of suitable models dealing with the physical and mechanical phenomena involved in the experiments. For example, ultrasonic tests may be a powerful, fast and effective method for nondestructive characterization of mechanical properties of materials. This requires the study of the related elastodynamic ...

This poster focuses on the development of a capacitive pressure sensor for condition monitoring applications. One method to measure vibrations is to mount an pressure sensor on the vibrating machinery or object and measure the pressure exerted due to vibrations. Measured pressure level helps to detect any deviations from the normal conditions.

 Airbus Safran Launchers, Ottobrunn, Germany
Airbus Safran Launchers is the market leader in Space Launch services. Rocket engines are among the most powerful machines that exist. The core of the rocket engine is the combustion chamber where in the case of liquid propellant rocket engines, fuel and oxidizer are injected, mixed and burnt and where, consequently, the energy release takes place. The hot combustion gases are accelerated in a ...

In this paper, we develop and analyze a standard piezoacoustic Tonpilz-transducer model for underwater acoustics in Comsol by addressing the attendant piezoelectric and pressure acoustic multiphysics phenomena. Transducer properties that are studied and characterized are the center frequency, bandwidth, linearity, sensitivity, and noise figure. In an effort to miniaturize the transducer, a ...

Tonal noise from wind turbines can have effects on neighboring residences and its emission can result in strong regulatory penalties that can include the closure of wind farms. The authors present a model of a new broadband damping approach where containers filled with EniDamp™, an Advance Particle Damping (APD) material. The containers, so-called APD pods, are magnetically fixed to wind ...
Study & Modeling of 'Acoustic Matching Layers' for Ultrasound Imaging Probes Through Pulse-Echo FEM Simulation - new
Esaote SpA, Florence, Italy
Ultrasound Imaging probes are specific devices that require a very detailed design of acoustic impedance match for the stack of layers that form the probe head (1,3). These are typically made of silicone rubber, special epoxy resins, polyurethanes and, of course, piezoelectric materials. The acoustic impedance, measured in Rayls, have to be matched similarly to an electric circuit (2), from a ...

Pipeline inspection tools present some limitations related to power supply which require recharging after each operation. Using batteries or tethered tools make the duration to inspect any pipeline very limited and time consuming. This paper aims at designing a spherical self-recharging untethered mobile ball flowing inside a given pipeline using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. The ball will ...

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 ...
