Visualization and Analysis Tools for Low Frequency Propagation in a Generalized 3-D Acoustic Space
A toolbox is described that enables 3D animated visualization and analysis of low-frequency wave propagation within a generalized acoustic environment. The core computation exploits a Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) algorithm selected because of its known low frequency accuracy. Multiple sources can be configured and analyses performed at user-selected measurement locations. Arbitrary excitation sequences enable virtual measurements embracing both time-domain and spatio-frequency domain analysis. Examples are presented for a variety of low-frequency loudspeaker placements and room geometries to illustrate the versatility of the toolbox as an acoustics design aid.
