Study on Numerical Methods for Acoustic Radiation of Open Structure


Article Preview

For acoustic radiation of open thin-walled structure, it was difficult to analyze directly by analytical method. The problem could be solved by several numerical methods. This paper had studied the basic theory of the numerical methods as FEM (Finite Element Method), BEM (Boundary Element Method) and IFEM (Infinite Element Method), and the numerical methods to solve open structure radiation problem. Under the premise of structure-acoustic coupling, this paper analyzed the theory and flow of the methods on acoustic radiation of open structure, including IBEM (Indirect Boundary Element Method), DBEM (Direct Boundary Element Method) coupling method of interior field and exterior field, FEM and BEM coupling method, FEM and IFEM coupling method. This paper took the open structure as practical example, and applied the several methods to analyze it, and analyzed and compared the several results to get relevant conclusions.
