Viscothermal effects in air lead to a damping of high frequencies over time. Such effects cannot be neglected in large-scale room acoustics simulations for the full audible bandwidth. In this study, full-bandwidth room acoustics is modelled using a variant of the three-dimensional wave equation including viscothermal losses in air following from a simplification of the Navier-Stokes equations suitable for room acoustics applications. The model equation is numerically solved using time domain finite difference methods. A three-step parameterised finite difference scheme is proposed to model T60 decay times as a function of frequency more accurately than two-step schemes. Timing results from parallelised implementations on a graphics processing unit (GPU) device are presented.
