The rigourous study of band gap materials in the last years has given as a result that these systems have interesting properties for technological purposes. However, the use of this materials for specific applications requires new tools and methods that help us to obtain optimized materials and realistic simulations. In this work we present two tools that let us obtain these realistic simulations based on experimental data and to optimize the band gap materials for specific uses. Also we present results for the specific case of Sonic Crystals in the audible frequency range.
