Wave Propagation solution for a variable area 1D duct
In the problem I am suppose to use the wave equation to solve it.
I assume 1D plane wave duct,
u(x,t) = 1/(rho*C)*real((Aexp(ikx)-Bexp(-ikx))exp(iwt))
where C is the speed of sound, u is the velocity, p is the pressure, w is the angular frequency, t is time, rho is the density, and both A and B are unknown constants which I have to find.
The equation for Pressure is similar except without density and speed of sound term,
p(x,t) = real((Aexp(ikx)-Bexp(-ikx))exp(iwt))
At the area changing point, I am suppose to assume the same pressure and Aa*U1 = Ab*U2 (essentially matching the conditions)
After applying the left end B.C, I get A = B
But I can't move any further.... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
