Abstract

A symmetric PML formulation that is suitable for finite element computation of time-harmonic acoustic waves in exterior domains is analyzed. Dispersion analysis displays the dependence of the discrete representation of the PML parameters on mesh refinement. Stabilization by modification of the coefficients is employed to improve PML performance, in conjunction with standard stabilized finite elements in the Helmholtz region. Numerical results validate the good performance of this finite element PML approach.
