This paper presents a mathematical model of linear acoustic wave propagation in fluids. The benefits of a mathematical model over a normal mode analysis are first discussed, then the mathematical model for acoustic propagation in the test medium is developed using computer simulations. The approach is based on a analytical solution to the homogeneous wave equation for fluid medium. A good agreement between the computational presented results with published data.
