In earlier studies, one has successfully developed three different source methods (SSM, similar source method; IPSM, internal parallel source method; ISM, internal source method) to estimate radiation and scattering sound fields. All these methods are estimations of exterior sound fields. In the present study, the similar source method is modified to estimate an interior sound field. The modification is to move the imaginary sources outside the boundary surface. In addition, general boundary conditions in terms of acoustic admittance or impedance are considered by introducing the suitable least square error functions. Finally, a two-dimensional interior sound field with alternative boundary conditions is evaluated to simulate sound fields inside a car. The results are in agreement with those of boundary integral method.
