Computational Acoustics Provides Early Insight and Predictive Ability in the Design Process
Acoustic phenomena are multiphysics in nature. When building a model, engineers must account for several types of physics and their coupling at different scales and frequencies.

When we discuss acoustics, the rst images that might come to mind are of a loud subwoofer or a concert hall with all of its sound bafes. But there are many more acoustics applications that we come into contact with everyday.
Acoustics is a multidisciplinary science requiring engineers to resort to all of their ingenuity and the most powerful mathematical modeling tools to create products that satisfy many customers’ requirements.
This special edition of COMSOL News celebrates designers, engineers, and researchers working in the eld of acoustics. As you will see by reading their stories, the common denominator is a passion for high-fidelity multiphysics modeling, exibility, and the ability to share their work with colleagues and customers through simulation apps.
From virtual product development to NVH performance, acoustic cloaking, and feedback reduction, I’m sure you will feel inspired from reading about the many ways computational acoustics drives the solution of practical problems and the design of innovative products.
This resource will cover:
- ACOUSTICS SIMULATION
- VIRTUAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
- HIGH-PRECISION MICROPHONES
- COMBUSTION INSTABILITY
- NVH PERFORMANCE
- MULTIPHYSICS MODELING
