This workshop will explore FE/BE modeling of loudspeaker drivers. A case study of an existing loudspeaker driver will be modeled by each panelist to benchmark the capabilities of their modeling software package. A loudspeaker driver's dimensions and material properties will be provided to panelists in advance of the convention so that they may develop a thorough model for presentation at the workshop. Results will be discussed along with measurement analysis of the real loudspeaker driver.
