Metasurfaces with unit cells at sub-wavelength scale have been successfully used to precisely control and manipulate waves, and applications based on static metasurfaces are on the surge. The design of these metasurfaces, however, often proceeds by trial and error, benchmarking different solutions with finite elements method (FEM) simulations. This is a batch process, which is not quick enough for the real-time adjustments of sound fields promised by adjustable metamaterials. Here, we present a numerical investigation of sound wave propagation after travelling through a metasurface using the Angular Spectrum Method (ASM). Using different application-focused cases (e.g., focusing, steering, self-bending), we compare the predicted result with the simulated distributions of sound pressure obtained with a commercial FE software. Finally, we present a preliminary discussion on the cost-efficiency of the two approaches and on the perspectives opened by using the ASM as a design tool.
