AiS Challenge Team Abstract

Team Number: 078

School Name: Santa Fe High School

Area of Science: Physics

Project Title: A Computational Approach to Sonar Focal Point Determinations



Our project will calculate the foci of sound waves in a three-dimensional environment. This science is useful for planning for buildings, theaters, classrooms, and even satellites. Algebra and trigonometry will be used to determine the foci. Variables used will primarily be the materials used to create the environment, their sound absorptive qualities, and the dimensions of the environment. Computers will be used to carry out the input of data and calculations. Computers may also be used for visualization.
