raytrace: Raytrace Through a Soundspeed Profile

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/raytrace.R

Description

Traces the ray of a sound through a varying soundspeed profile for a fixed amount of time. Also plots the provided sound speed profile and all traces generated. All code here is based on MATLAB code originally written by Val Schmidt from the University of New Hampshire Val Schmidt (2021). raytrace https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/26253-raytrace), MATLAB Central File Exchange.

Usage

1
raytrace(x0, z0, theta0, tt, zz, cc, plot = TRUE, progress = FALSE)

Arguments

x0

starting horizontal coordinate in meters

z0

starting vertical coordinate in meters

theta0

starting angle(s) of ray in degrees

tt

max travel time of ray in seconds

zz

vertical coordinates of sound speed profile (positive values are down)

cc

sound speed measurements at zz locations, meters / second

plot

logical flag to plot. Can be a vector of length two to individually select plotting one of the two plots generated

progress

logical flag to show progress bar

Value

A list with four elements: x, the horizontal coordinates of ray path, z the vertical coordinates of ray path, t actual travel time of ray in seconds, and d the total distance the ray traveled. Each individual item in the output is a list with one entry for each theta0 provided.

#  Setup the sound speed profile
zz <- seq(from=0, to=5000, by=1)
cc <- 1520 + zz * -.05
cc[751:length(cc)] <- cc[750] + (zz[751:length(zz)] - zz[750])*.014
rt <- raytrace(0, 0, 5, 120, zz, cc, TRUE)
