Problem with a leapfrog scheme for wave equationHi,
I have coded the 1D acoustical wave equation (actually, I coded the two Euler equations that one must combine to obtain the wave equation) using a finite differences leapfrog scheme (three time steps). But when I try to excite a resonant mode by implementing a sinusoidal source, one value over two is zero. For exemple, this is what i obtain for the third mode : http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/9277/mode3.jpg The shape of the signal is correct, the position of the nodes and anti-nodes is good, but where do these oscillations come from ?! Does someone know ? Thanks. Olivier. PS : sorry if my english is not perfect because I'm french. I hope my problem was understandable. |
