An Investigation and Application of the Finite Difference Time Domain Method as a Tool for Solving Equalization Problems in Acoustics
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates the issues in deriving the Finite Di erence Time Domain Method, including the derivation of a unique method for exciting an FDTD system that is physically realistic in terms of acoustics. It is also the goal of this thesis to use the FDTD method as a tool for investigating various speaker placement con gurations for use in bass equalization. A demerit function is then developed in order to assess how well a particular equalization method performs relative to any others.
