A method is introduced to study the transmission and scattering properties of acoustic waves in two–dimen- sional phononic band gap (PBG) materials. First, it is used to calculate the transmission coefficients of PBG samples. Second, the transmitted power is calculated based on the far field approach. We have also calcu- lated the scattering cross section, the results indicate that phononic band gap appear in frequency regions between two well separated resonance states.
