A MATLAB toolbox for the time-domain
simulation of acoustic wave fields
k-Wave is an open source acoustics toolbox for MATLAB developed by Bradley Treeby (Australian National University) and Ben Cox (University College London). The software is designed for time domain acoustic and ultrasound simulations in complex and tissue-realistic media. The simulation functions are based on the k-space pseudospectral method and are both fast and easy to use. The toolbox includes:
k-Wave Version 1.0 is now available for download.
A paper from this years IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium on experimental validation of the nonlinear ultrasound model is now available.
A paper in The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America describing the nonlinear model is now in print. See the publications page for details.
The fifth beta release of k-Wave (version B.0.5) is now available.
