Application ID: 3867
This example demonstrates how to use a background field in a sound scattering problem. The application is an acoustic invisibility cloak made of a metamaterial. Two different types of metamaterials are used, one using an anisotropic acoustic material with varying properties and one using two layered materials with varying properties. Thanks to its space-dependent material properties and layered structure, both types of metamaterials are almost transparent to an incident plane pressure wave.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Tabella delle Funzionalità and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
