The performance of AWAS for 3D simulation

Hi, has anyone tested the AWAS for 3D simulation to see its performance?

The examples are 2D, and I have tried to implement AWAS for 3D simulations, but results are not satisfactory at all.



  • We are going to modify the current implementation of 3D in order to solve some issues... The problem now is that reflected waves are only being analysed in one point and that is not accurate and correct.

    Meanwhile you should divide your 3D wide piston into many (10-50) narrow pistons and each one working with AWAS... in this way the reflected waves are been analysed in many points (one in front of mid-point of each piston) and that will help.


  • hello Alex

    I have some questions about using AWAS in 3D model. You said that PISTON was divided into several parts for monitoring, but I kept making mistakes when SETTING up. Is it my misunderstanding? Or did I set it wrong?

  • Please note the original post is from 2019. @Alex can probably inform you whether or not the bug has been fixed.

    Kind regards
