Spherical Scatterer: BEM Benchmark

Application ID: 56141

In this classical benchmark model, a spherical scatterer is placed in a plane wave background field. When the sphere is modeled as sound hard, the problem has an analytical solution. The model compares the results using the Pressure Acoustics, Boundary Elements interface with the analytical solution for several frequencies. The results show very good agreement. The model results do not show any irregular modes.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
