Modal Network Solver for the Simulation of Complex Mechanoacoustical Systems
This paper describes the layout of a modal network solver designed for daily loudspeaker engineering practice. A loudspeaker consists of an electrical, mechanical and acoustical subsystem. Each of these systems is expanded in eigen-function series, the coupling of which is solved with the help of a mixture of closed form solutions and numerical methods. The results are various system response curves such as sound pressure, directivity, excursion, etc.
