The Boundary Element Method in Acoustics
by Stephen Kirkup
Publisher: Integrated Sound Software 2007
Number of pages: 161
The boundary element method (BEM) is a powerful tool in computational acoustic analysis. The book serves as an introduction to the BEM and its application to acoustic problems and goes on to complete the development of computational models. Software implementing the methods is available. Examples of realistic application such as vehicle noise and loudspeaker design analysis illustrate the potential of the BEM in acoustic simulation.
