Diameter and Taper Discontinuities

A frequency-domain, transfer-matrix method for modeling piece-wise conical sections, as previously presented for cylindrical sections, is possible. The matrix elements are a bit more complicated, but the approach is well documented and validated and can include accurate characterizations of thermoviscous losses. In this section, however, we focus on the time-domain, traveling-wave approach for modeling combinations of conical sections.
