We present a model to calculate heat signal shapes from low-temperature bolometer attached to a crystal. This model is based on the elementary acoustic wave theory at low temperature and has been developed using modern Monte Carlo techniques. Physical processes in phonon propagation, such as transmission, scattering and reflection are considered. Using our model, the calculated time dependence of signal agrees with real experimental data. This model has applications in low-temperature rare event particle detectors for dark matter and neutrinos.
