We exhibit an application method of the acoustics module for numerical simulation of sound pressure distribution inside/outside a reactor under the indirect irradiation of ultrasounds. Applicability of the sound pressure simulation to design of sonochemical reactor is shown by comparison with experimental results for the process analysis of emulsion polymerization using ultrasounds.
