Acoustic Wave Propagation
Based on linear acoustic, assuming the
crosssection area equals to A and no mass is entering or leaving the system due to the acoustic
disturbance, the wave propagation can be represented by following figure:
where, at ambient environment
and at acoustic disturbance state: and,
where,

properties at wavefront: Acoustic Propagation Properties
Since the acoustic pressure variations is much smaller than the ambient
pressure, the total pressure approximately equals to the ambient pressure.
Similarly, the acoustic density variations is also much smaller than the
ambient medium density, the total medium density approximately equals to the
ambient medium density. For a quiescent medium, the initial medium velocity equals to
zero, therefore the total velocity equals to the acoustic velocity variations.
Besides, for a homogenous quiescent medium, the initial medium velocity, the
ambient pressure and the ambient medium density are constant and independent of
time and position. Therefore: Linearized Acoustic Wave Equation, 1D
Since both u
, ρ are very small
when comparing with ρ_{o} and they are a
function of time and position, equations can be linearized by neglecting
second and higher order terms.

of motion and linearize the equation by neglecting second and higher order terms, then: The position derivative of the equation is Therefore, equate the conservation of mass and conservation of momentum, then: To simplify the equation, the equation of state is applied and to make the equation more practical, the equation is expressed in term of the fluctuating pressure, which can be measured easily. Then Speed of Acoustic Wave PropagationFor a control volume, when reducing the control volume to the medium at the wavefront of acoustic wave propagation, from the principle of mass conservation, the mass of medium in the control volume should be constant.
Assume c
is the speed of wavefront propagation and propagates away from the source, and Δu is the acoustic velocity
fluctuation, since the fluctuation is a relative velocity to the wave
propagation, the net medium velocity is
cΔu at the acoustic source side. Then
Alternately, the continuity equation can be expressed as the
net instantaneous mass flow into and out of the control volume to be equal. Then
Since c is much greater than Δu, therefore: Similarly, for the same control volume, from principle of energy conservation, the energy of medium in the control volume should be constant.
Assume Δh
is the acoustic enthalpy variations of the medium in the control volume. Since
ρ_{total}u_{total}
is not equal to zero and conservation of mass, by neglecting second
order small term. Then: Alternately, the conservation of energy can be expressed as the net instantaneous energy flow into and out of the control volume to be equal. Then Neglecting second order small term. Then Equating mass conservation and energy conservation. Then The acoustic disturbance is small and can be assumed as an isentropic process. Imply Substitute Δh into the equation of wave propagation, Imply Since both ρ and p are the small acoustic fluctuation, and under isentropic process, imply For an isentropic process, imply Substitute into the equation of wave propagation, Imply Wave Equation, 1DSubstitute the speed of wave propagation into the wave equation, Imply ©sideway References
