Fast multipole boundary element method for acoustic problems and its applications
Boundary element method (BEM), a numerical method based on integral equation, can reduce the dimension of the model, and only requires the boundary to be discretized. It is easy to handle the far field boundary condition with the BEM since the integral equation automatically satisfies the radiation condition. Although dimension is reduced, the coefficient matrix generated by the BEM is full, non-symmetrical and even singular, which results in huge memory cost and computational complexity. Those features prevent BEM from the analyses of large scale acoustic problems. Currently, the analyses and studies for acoustic problems tend to large scale and multi-physics models, such as simulations for scattering and radiation of submarine, taking off and landing noise of airplane, acoustic characteristics of organs and tissues and the optimization of coupled structure-acoustics. Those models will generate DOFs at the level of hundreds of thousands or even several millions and thus urgently demand the BEM can solve such large scale acoustic problems within reasonable time. The fast multipole method (FMM) can reduce the memory and improve the computational efficiency dramatically. It presents a potential way to solve the large scale acoustic problems.
The present talk introduces the recent development BEM in our group for free space, multi-domain and half space acoustic problems based on the FMM. New theories and algorithms were proposed to solve the two bottlenecks, large memory and huge computational complexity, of BEM. The FMBEM were applied to predict the acoustic radiation and structure-acoustic optimization for large scale engineering problems. Those successful applications demonstrated the super computational capability of the FMBEM for large scale acoustic problems and the potential in the acoustic optimization.
