The AES Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) presents the second webinar on the practice and benefits of simulation-driven audio architecture design by use of Digital Twins. In this series of Modeling and Measurement online events, experts from COMSOL, JJR Acoustic and Facebook, discuss the role of Digital Twins and how to influence fundamental design considerations, even before the first prototype is built to proof a concept. This session will describe and detail a real virtual architectural design story.

This webinar series focuses on how experimental transducer and virtual simulation-driven audio architecture explorations can work alongside, impacting the very early product development cross-functional discussions with PM (Program Management), PD (Product Development) and ID (Industrial Design). With expert contributions from COMSOL, JJR Acoustics, and Facebook, the webinar series will share methods and experiences on how to meet PMs desired audio user experience, PDs manufacturing strategy/story, and IDs aesthetics and function. The presentations will also explore the corresponding strategies to inform and qualify the first physical prototype made for proof of concept, and validate a commitment to investment on a product idea.

A Case Study
In this second webinar Roger Shively (JJR Acoustics) will present a real case study of Virtual Architectural Design by DigitalTwin, followed by a detailed description of the model and explorations using Comsol.

Introduction to case study
Why a simulation driven approach – why not just another prototype and experimental measurements? (Roger Shively)
How was the problem addressed and solved with COMSOL? (Mads Jensen)
How was the device architecture influenced/impacted? (Roger Shively)
