Visualization and analysis tools for low-frequency propagation in a generalized 3D acoustic spaceA software toolbox is described that enables three-dimensional animated visualization and analysis of low-frequency wave propagation within a generalized acoustic environment. The core computation exploits a finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algorithm selected because of its known low-frequency accuracy. Multiple sources can be configured and analyses performed at user-selected measurement locations. Arbitrary excitation sequences enable virtual measurements embracing both time-domain and spatio-frequency-domain analyses. Examples are presented for a variety of low-frequency loudspeaker placements and room geometries to illustrate the utility of the toolbox for various acoustical design challenges.
