Acoustic waves are modeled using a 2D frequency-domain finite-difference scheme with three different artificial damping boundaries: the absorbing boundary condition (ABC), perfectly matched layer (PML), and a hybrid strategy combining PML and ABC. We evaluated the features of each simulation for a given artificial boundary condition for homogeneous and heterogeneous media. For shorter PML layers, the hybrid absorbing scheme gave better results when compared with the traditional PML technique, with a significant reduction of the spurious reflections and a shorter computational run time.
