Numerical Simulation refers to the process of using computational methods and algorithms to model and analyze the behavior of a system or process. Instead of conducting physical experiments, numerical simulation involves solving mathematical equations and algorithms through numerical techniques to approximate and simulate the real-world behavior of a system.


Template Matching Method with Distributed Acoustic Sensing Data and Simulation Data

We propose a new method to detect acoustic signals by matching distributed acoustic sensing data with simulation. In the simulation of the dynamic strain on an optical fiber, the optical fiber layouts and the gauge length are properly incorporated. We apply the proposed method to the acoustic-source localization and demonstrate the method localizes the source accurately even under the layouts which include the straight optical fiber for the sensing points with the large gauge-length settings.
