Time-domain impedance formulation for transmission line matrix modelling of outdoor sound propagation

Abstract : Outdoor sound propagation modelling has attracted considerable attention in the past and has lead to many analytical and numerical models. More recently, the increase of computational power has led to consider time-domain methods that enable to consider transient phenomena. Among these models, the transmission line matrix (TLM) method has been proposed, but the sound absorption at boundaries appears to be a somewhat underdeveloped aspect of this approach. In this paper, a specific implementation of impedance boundary condition is proposed. The method is based on the approximation of the impedance as a sum of linear systems, which allows the formulation of an equivalent impedance model in the time-domain. The proposed implementation is applied for two common impedance models of porous material. Numerical simulations have been carried out in the case of sound propagation over a flat ground with and without an impedance discontinuity, and for several values of specific airflow resistivity. TLM numerical predictions expressed in terms of excess attenuation relative to free field show a good agreement with analytical solutions.
