It is much cheaper to design an airgun array by using computer simulation rather than by performing numerous field trials. However, you must be sure that the sirnulations are accurate. The use of computer simulation is now well established in the design of conventional, 'weakly interacting' arrays where the airguns are over about one metre apart (Ziolkowski and Metselaar 1984).
