The inverse method based on the numerical solution of Laplace's equation is introduced for the design of acoustic metamaterial devices. An arbitrary shaped acoustic concentrator and an external cloak are designed numerically and validated by full wave simulation. Besides, an acoustic reciprocal cloak and a field rotator are proposed. Compared with the analytical method, the inverse method is much more universal, and arbitrary shaped acoustic metamaterial devices can be flexibly designed without any knowledge of the transformation equations.
