In Part 1, we discussed why datasheets can be misleading and why, even though an industry standard is not realistic, EAW needed to develop a rock-solid internal standard that enabled us to move into more advanced areas of development.
In Part 2, we will discuss these more advanced design tools in some detail. While most of the industry knows that Resolution™ is our modeling software system, only a certain portion is aware of a piece of software called F-Chart™ that is the mathematical genius behind our entire process.
How F-Chart Works
In 1997, when EAW was developing the KF900 system, we relied on a new piece of EAW-produced software called F-Chart. F-Chart enabled EAW engineers to combine data from multiple drivers as would occur in an array and predict total array response at a range of points along the vertical axis.
The key to this process as outlined in the KF900 / Phased Point Source Technology white paper was to accurately capture in situ data from each individually processed transducer at each of the points…continue reading »
