The following document describes the structure and gives information about the available measurement data. Note, that the material parameters which we provide are only start values, average data as may be given by the producer of the plexiglas sheets and isolation materials.
These data are mainly intended to check against your numerical results.
Animations of modes Use these animations as very rough guidelines for the validity of your FE model. These were extracted from a previous version of the structure with somewhat different geometry. Do not use them for the finetuning of your model!
Part 1 Vibrations
SEA - Theory and Application NB! 17 MB
Note that the geometry of the structure used in the Appendix: Matlab code is not completely identical to that of the current structure.
There are two computers available at the Division of Applied Acoustics for conducting the FE-assignment: One is situated in the computer room opposite the kitchen and the other one in the room in front of the lecture room. COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a can also be installed on your own computer, see below.
This document describes how you can install COMSOL Multiphysics 4.3a on you own computer. Please install it as class-kit license (CKL). The licenses are available at the student portal web site.
Here are the slides from the two lectures:
This is a document showing the complete Finite Difference and Finite Element derrivations for the rod example used in the lecture:
Another really good document which describes the theory more general (not sticking as much to one example as we did) is also available for curious readers:
Below, all material pertaining to the assignment is found (cf. also Experimental Data section). You will find the slides and a which were used when presenting the assignment, a more detailled task description and the Comsol Multiphysics 4.2 Guide which describes how to implement the FE-model in Multiphysics 4.2. Read the latter document before going on with readMultiphysicsTXT.m.
The following files are only needed if you happen to have a copy of Multiphysics 3.5 on your computer and want to use this instead of Multiphysics 4.
These are the slides from the feedback lecture:
Measurements of the uncalibrated mean pressure in the reverberation chamber for the motor mounted on the structure and the motor freely suspended.
