Efficient outdoor sound propagation modeling with the finite-difference time-domain ( FDTD ) method : a review

  title={Efficient outdoor sound propagation modeling with the finite-difference time-domain ( FDTD ) method : a review},
  author={Timothy Van Renterghem},
The finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method, solving the inhomogeneous, moving medium sound propagation equations, also referred to as the Linearized Euler(ian) Equations (LEE), has become a mature reference outdoor sound propagation model during the last two decades. It combines the ability to account for complex wave effects like reflection, scattering and diffraction near arbitrary objects, and complex medium effects like convection, refraction and (turbulent) scattering. In addition, it… CONTINUE READING
