A Julia package for calculating, processing and plotting waves travelling in heterogeneous materials. The focus is on ensemble averaged waves.
At present, the packages calculates effective wavenumbers, wave transimission and wave reflection from random particulate materials in two-dimensions, see arXiv preprint for details on the mathematics, or these notes for the formulas.
Type into Julia:
using Pkg Pkg.clone("https://github.com/arturgower/EffectiveWaves.jl.git") using EffectiveWaves

- DEVEL — documentation of the in-development version.
Effective wavenumbers for two species randomly (uniformly) distributed in Glycerol.
#where: ρ = density, r = radius, c = wavespeed, and volfrac = volume fraction const WaterDistilled= Medium(ρ=0.998*1000, c = 1496.0) const Glycerol = Medium(ρ=1.26*1000, c = 1904.0) species = [ Specie(ρ=WaterDistilled.ρ,r=30.e-6, c=WaterDistilled.c, volfrac=0.1), Specie(ρ=Inf, r=100.0e-6, c=2.0, volfrac=0.2) ] # background medium background = Glycerol
Calculate effective wavenumbers:
# angular frequencies ωs = LinRange(0.01,1.0,60)*30.0e6 wavenumbers = wavenumber_low_volfrac(ωs, background, species) speeds = ωs./real(wavenumbers) attenuations = imag(wavenumbers)
