Please write me if you have any comments to improve these pages.
Note: as of 15/09/2015, I am currently redoing the site's pages in order to standardize results and allow for a more rapid access to the information. I hope I can finish soon!
These pages explore the rich features of the classical guitar design by
analyzing the essential principles implemented on the soundboards of famous guitar builders using finite Element analysis (FEA).
My goal here is not to simulate specifically the soundboard of a particular guitar, but to rather understand the effects of different struting designs on a standard soundboard, something that is impossible to do in the real world.
I. The Basics
II. Vibration modes of main designs
