One-Family House Acoustics Analyzer

The One-Family House Acoustics Analyzer app is used to assess noise propagation in coupled rooms inside of a two-story house consisting of ten rooms. The app determines the sound pressure level (SPL) distribution in the house based on a number of sources that are interactively placed throughout the home. It represents a classical room acoustics problem where engineers or architects want to ...

Winding Designer for Electrical Machines

You can use this simulation app as a guide on how to automate selections using the Application Builder. In the example app, the selection algorithm depends on the relationship between the electrical and mechanical angles, which are generally used in the design of windings in electrical machines. Get more details in our blog post: [How to Automate Winding Design in Electrical Machines with an ...

Thermal Bridges in Building Construction - 2D Composite Structure

This example studies heat transfer in a composite two-dimensional structure. Four materials with distinct thermal conductivities k compose the structure. The top and bottom boundaries are facing environments respectively at 0°C and 20°C. The temperature distribution and the heat flux through the structure are compared with published data. This example corresponds to the case 2 described in ...

Bike Frame Analyzer

The reliability of a bike frame can be estimated by analyzing the structural stress subjected to different load cases. This app leverages LiveLink™ for SOLIDWORKS® to interactively update the geometry while computing stress analyses. Using this app, you can easily test different configurations of a bike frame for different cases of dimensions, material, and loads. The app computes the stress ...

Hydrodealkylation in a Membrane Reactor

This application demonstrates how you can access and include external thermodynamic and physical property calculations in your simulation, using the Thermodynamics feature. The example shows how you can easily modify the predefined Plug-flow reactor type in the Reaction Engineering interface to set up a membrane reactor model. At high temperatures and pressures, and in the presence of ...

Fatigue Failure of an Eyeglass Frame

In the search for weight reduction, the cross-section of an eyeglass frame is continuously reduced. The thin section over the nose transfers the entire load between the two halves. This example predicts the fatigue life using the combined Basquin and Coffin-Manson model when eyeglasses are subjected to bending.

Cascaded Rectangular Cavity Filter

A cascaded cavity filter provides much better bandpass filter performance compared to a single cavity. Out-of-band rejection improves dramatically using a cascaded design. This model uses three rectangular cavity filters coupled via slots. The calculated S-parameters show excellent out-of-band rejection.

Temperature Field in a Cooling Flange

A cooling flange in a chemical process is used to cool the process fluid, which flows through the flange. The surrounding air cools the flange via natural convection. In the stationary model, the forced convection to the process fluid is modeled using a constant heat transfer coefficient. The natural convection cooling is modeled using tabulated empirical transfer coefficients that are ...

Fast Numerical Modeling of a Conical Horn Lens Antenna

An axisymmetric 3D structure such as a conical horn antenna can be simulated in a fast and efficient way using only its 2D layout. In this model, the antenna radiation and matching characteristics are computed very quickly with respect to the dominant TE mode from the given circular waveguide by simulating the 2D axisymmetric geometry of an 3D antenna structure.

Soluble Lead-Acid Redox Flow Battery

In a redox flow battery electrochemical energy is stored as redox couples in the electrolyte, which is stored in tanks outside the electrochemical cell. During operation, electrolyte is pumped through the cell and, due to the electrochemical reactions, the individual concentrations of the active species in the electrolyte are changed. The state of charge of the flow battery is determined by ...
