Plane Wave Decomposition of Volume Element Mesh Data Simulations
Sound field simulations at low frequencies usually employ finite element or other mesh based methods. For auralization, output data from these methods need to be converted to a format compatible with auralization methods such as Wave Field Synthesis (WFS), Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA) or binaural reproduction. A method is proposed for converting the mesh data to plane wave components using a circular array of virtual sources centered around the listening position. The method is based on solving sets of linear propagation equations in the frequency domain. Results are presented for two-dimensional examples and numerical issues are discussed.
