wave equation

What are the best schemes(i.e eulers,Crank-nicolson.....ect) to solve Wave equation. Why CN method is not familiar in solving Wave equation ?

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

regards rvndr

Re: wave equation
Because CN is imlicit method!

Try using one of the explicit methods.

Re: wave equation
CN scheme is 2nd order, try Runge Kutta. Please visit : - (F.Q. Hu papers for acoustic wave propagation)

Re: wave equation
There are many schemes that are good for solving wave equation.Mc Cormack is a good scheme (user friendly) Flux splitting schemes are good.
