The simplest direct results of most numerical and hemi-analytical models are the wave development graphs. To compare the model results with experimental data, the theoretical tuning curve must be calculated. For this aim, the exterior cycle over the stimulating frequency must be included into the program, and the complex matrix of responses R (ω, x) = A ( ω, x) exp ( i Ø (ω, x)) must be obtained.
