A Collocation Method with Modified Equilibrium on Line Method for Imposition of Neumann and Robin Boundary Conditions in Acoustics (TECHNICAL NOTE)


Civil Engineering, Tehran University


A collocation method with the modified equilibrium on line method (ELM) forimposition of Neumann and Robin boundary conditions is presented for solving the two-dimensionalacoustical problems. In the modified ELM, the governing equations are integrated over the lines onthe Neumann (Robin) boundary instead of the Neumann (Robin) boundary condition equations. Inother words, integration domains are straight lines for nodes located on the Neumann boundary.Numerical examples of two-dimensional acoustical problems are presented to demonstrate thestability, accuracy and convergence of the proposed method.
