comment How can I validate a numerical model using an analytical solution of the same scenario?
Hi Mike. Thanks for commenting :) I've added a bit more information above. Both solutions do have a constant, pure tone, however the numerical approximation cannot do this for a 'pure' sinusoid as it is temporally limited. Perhaps you are suggesting I run the simulation over a fixed period, 3 cycles say, and then use that in the comparison?

comment Why does a smaller acoustic impedance mismatch produce lower transmission?
If anyone is looking, equation 9.23 in the book available at goo.gl/FSu2j confirms this correction. Thank you david.smith :)

comment How can I estimate the elasto-optic coefficients ($p_{11}$ and $p_{12}$) of a material?
Thanks - hopefully some insight will be forthcoming soon :)
