The existing procedures to precalculate cluster behavior are reported in the paper. Methods for use in an acoustic CAD program are presented. This work deals with the directivity characteristic and with some acoustic measures, such as the acoustical center and the point of origin. The implementation in CAD programs is shown. The results of the precalculation are compared with measurements and show good agreement.
