Acoustic simulation program or (sound wave simulation program)

Hi guys

I am looking for a very particular sound wave simulation program. To get an understanding of what i want let me describe it to you in a different way.

Imagine your look at a bowl of water from above and you poke the water at a specific frequency you will see wave patterns showing. Well im after a program that can generate that pattern with any particular frequency that i set, and to allow me to place different shapes and objects around the sound source or sources (i may want to use more than one sound source that may or may not be at the same frequency as first.) and see what kind of reflections i get.

I was also wondering if instead of a point sound source you could have an entire shape giving off a specific vibration. This will give very interesting results that i am also after.

There are some programs that show sound simulations that i have described but nothing that can do the requirements that i desire. Do any of you guys know of any programs that can do this? if not how much would it cost to build such a program?

Depending on your mathematical skills, but maybe "octave" is the way to go, it's a MATLAB clone. But you will do everything "by hand" if you don't find some scripts (MATLAB or OCTAVE since they are 99% compatible) that do what you want.
