Modelling sound propagation over large domains presents severe challenges with respect to computational requirements. In general, direct solutions of system equations resulting from the full field discretization of many three-dimensional problems of practical interest cannot be attempted. The present study investigates iterative solutions for solving a Three-Dimensional Helmholtz equation. The discretization of the Helmholtz equation is done by a Wave Based Finite Difference scheme known as the Wave Expansion Method (WEM). The WEM requires only 2-3 nodes per wavelength to obtain accurate solutions which offers a potential for major improvement in efficiency compares to conventional techniques such as the Finite Element/Finite Difference approaches which require around 8-10 nodes per wavelength. The solver employed here is the standard Bi-Conjugate Gradient Stabilized (Bi-CGSTAB) algorithm. Results are presented for high frequency acoustic scattering problems occurring in aircrafts. Investigations are also carried out to check the effectiveness of the standard preconditioning strategies such as the Incomplete LU decomposition with drop tolerance method. The influence of the scatterer is also studied in this paper.
