added new get_aperture_point2 function with the same function as the original,...

added new get_aperture_point2 function with the same function as the original, but using a matlab optimisation algorithm
parent fd8f45d7
function ap = get_aperture_point2( obj, source_pos, receiver_pos )
start = obj.aperture_start_point;
dir = obj.aperture_direction;
S_on_ap = orthogonal_projection( start, dir, source_pos ); %project the source to the aperture
S_t = (S_on_ap - start) / dir; S_t = S_t(1,1); %find the parametric distance along the aperture
R_on_ap = orthogonal_projection( start, dir, receiver_pos ); %same as above but for receiver
R_t = (R_on_ap - start) / dir; R_t = R_t(1,1);
start_t = min( S_t, R_t ); %start the optimisation at whichever of the projected source/ receiver comes first on the aperture
end_t = max( S_t, R_t ); %finish at the other
t = fminbnd(@(t)total_path_distance(t, source_pos, receiver_pos, start, dir), start_t, end_t );
ap = start + t*dir; %using the optimised parameter, find the aperture position
function dist = total_path_distance(t, source_pos, receiver_pos, start, dir)
P = start + (t*dir); %P = point on the aperture
dist = norm(P - source_pos) + norm(receiver_pos - P); %given point on aperture, source and receiver positions, calculate the distance traveled
function point_on_line = orthogonal_projection(line_point,line_dir,point)
point_on_line = line_point + dot(point-line_point,line_dir) / dot(line_dir,line_dir) * line_dir;
