A direction preserving discretization for computing phase-space densities

06/28/2021 ∙ by David J. Chappell, et al. ∙ 0

Ray flow methods are an efficient tool to estimate vibro-acoustic or electromagnetic energy transport in complex domains at high-frequencies. Here, a Petrov-Galerkin discretization of a phase-space boundary integral equation for transporting wave energy densities on two-dimensional surfaces is proposed. The directional dependence of the energy density is approximated at each point on the boundary in terms of a finite local set of directions propagating into the domain. The direction of propagation can be preserved for transport across multi-component domains when the directions within the local set are inherited from a global direction set. The range of applicability and computational cost of the method will be explored through a series of numerical experiments, including wave problems from both acoustics and elasticity in both single and multi-component domains. The domain geometries considered range from both regular and irregular polygons to curved surfaces, including a cast aluminium shock tower from a Range Rover car.
