# Guide

The `FinEtools`

package is used here to solve heat conduction problems.

## Modules

The package `FinEtoolsAcoustics`

has the following structure:

**Top-level**:`FinEtoolsAcoustics`

is the top-level module.**Acoustics**:`AlgoAcoustModule`

(algorithms),`FEMMAcoustModule`

,`FEMMAcoustSurfModule`

(FEM machines to evaluate the matrix and vector quantities),`MatAcoustFluidModule`

(acoustic fluid material).

## Acoustics FEM machines

There is one for the interior integrals and one for boundary integrals. The machine for the interior integrals can be used to compute:

Evaluate the acoustic-mass matrix and the acoustic-stiffness matrix.

Evaluate the load vector corresponding to prescribed pressure or the prescribed second order rate of the pressure.

The machine for the boundary integrals can be used to compute:

Compute transformation matrix to convert pressure to resultant force or pressure to resultant torque.

Compute the acoustic ABC (absorbing boundary condition) matrix.

### Acoustics algorithms

At the moment there is one algorithm, for steady-state (harmonic) acoustics.

#### Example: baffled piston

After the mesh has been generated, the `modeldata`

can be set up: Here we begin with the region.

```
material = MatAcoustFluid(bulk, rho)
region1 = FDataDict("femm"=>FEMMAcoust(IntegDomain(fes, GaussRule(3, 2)), material))
```

We set up a definition of the absorbing boundary condition:

```
abc1 = FDataDict("femm"=>FEMMAcoustSurf(IntegDomain(outer_fes, GaussRule(2, 2)),
material))
```

The surface of the piston is associated with a known-flux boundary condition:

```
flux1 = FDataDict("femm"=>FEMMAcoustSurf(IntegDomain(piston_fes, GaussRule(2, 2)),
material), "normal_flux"=> -rho*a_piston+0.0im);
```

And finally we make the model data,

```
modeldata = FDataDict("fens"=> fens,
"omega"=>omega,
"regions"=>[region1],
"flux_bcs"=>[flux1], "ABCs"=>[abc1])
```

and call the solver:

`modeldata = FinEtools.AlgoAcoustModule.steadystate(modeldata)`

When the algorithm completes, `modeldata["P"]`

is the computed pressure field.
