In this paper underwater acoustic wave propagation is studied numerically by Differential Quadrature method. Numerical methods are different with respect to accuracy, computer costs and practical flexibility. In this study Differential Quadrature (DQ) method is applied for numerical solution of underwater acoustic wave for first time. Two experimental cases are used to validate the two-dimensional wave model, first the numerical results are verified by analytical solution and the second one showed the applicability of current method in complex domain. Comparisons demonstrate the efficiency, accuracy and robustness of the Differential Quadrature method for acoustic wave simulation.
