  • Low-loss Floating Electrode Unidirectional Transducer for SAW Sensor
    • Abstract: Two types of interdigital transducer (IDT) structures of SAW devices have been investigated; one type consists in a classical single electrode transducer where the unit cell has two electrodes, and the other type has a design of floating electrode unidirectional transducer (FEUDT) where the unit cell has six electrodes per period. By taking the Fourier transform of the corresponding time response, the insertion loss (IL) of the SAW device with FEUDT is calculated as –2.6 (forward) and –20.5 dB (backward). At the same time, the device with conventional IDT exhibits an IL value of –8.4 (forward) and –7.8 dB (backward). It turns out that the design of a novel FEUDT type SAW device can efficiently reduce the insertion loss of the SAW device.

  • Local Kramers–Kronig Relations between the Attenuation Coefficient and
           Phase Velocity of Longitudinal Ultrasonic Waves in Polymer Composites
    • Abstract: The relationship between the experimentally obtained attenuation coefficient and dispersion of the phase velocity of longitudinal ultrasonic waves in polymer composite materials has been analyzed. The laser optoacoustic method has been used to measure the ultrasonic attenuation and velocity in a wide frequency range. Verification of the Kramers–Kronig relations for ultrasound-scattering and absorbing carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites has been performed using the analysis of the relationship between the frequency dependences of the attenuation coefficient and phase velocity of longitudinal acoustic waves in samples. We have shown that the Kramers–Kronig relations between the ultrasonic attenuation and phase velocity are valid within the 1–10 MHz frequency range without regard to a particular mechanism of the decay in the energy of an initial acoustic wave during its propagation in a composite.

  • Accelerated Thermal Ablation of Biological Tissue Volumes using HIFU beams
           with Shock Fronts
    • Abstract: The paper presents the results of a numerical experiment comparing the rates of volumetric thermal ablation of bovine liver tissue ex vivo, generated by a multielement ultrasound array Sonalleve V1 3.0T (Philips Healthcare) using various exposure protocols. Pulsed sonications with the same time-average, but different peak power and duty cycle were modeled. The treatment trajectory consisted of a discrete set of single foci located at the center and along two concentric circles. Beam focusing in tissue was modeled using the Westervelt equation, the temperature field was calculated using the bioheat equation, and the threshold of tissue damage was determined according to the thermal dose formulation. It is shown that pulsed shock-wave exposures can provide up to three times faster volumetric ablation of tissue as compared to continuous quasi-harmonic wave treatments.

  • Elastic and Mechanical Parameters of n -АМg6/С60 Nanocomposite under
           Cyclic Reversible Static Load
    • Abstract: Results of experimental investigation into the effect of reversible mechanical loading–unloading on linear and nonlinear properties of n‑AMg6/C60 nanostructured composite are presented. For nanocomposite specimens, mechanical stress–strain curves are measured under many-cycle loading–unloading down to specimen fracture. The effect of cyclic loading–unloading on the microhardness of specimens is investigated. Within different characteristic portions of the stress–strain curve, nonlinear elastic properties of n-AMg6/C60 composite specimens subjected to several loading–unloading cycles are studied by Thurston–Brugger and spectral methods. The results of experimental studies are discussed.

  • Acoustic Wave Propagation Along Piezoelectric Plate Coated with
           Piezoelectric Films
    • Abstract: A novel solid state structure consisting of piezoelectric plate sandwiched between two piezoelectric films is suggested as propagation medium for acoustic waves. Considering, as an example, quartz plate coated with AlN film and with AlN film together with ZnO film, the main characteristics of the Lamb and SH acoustic modes are numerically calculated and compared with each other. It is shown that i) the range of acoustic parameters achievable in structures is wider than that is for an uncoated plate, ii) generation of waves in the plate with one film is accomplished by 12 transducer configurations, while there are 32 configurations to excite the same waves in two film structure, iii) dispersion of the wave velocities and coupling constants depend on the mode order, mode type, film thickness, plate thickness, and transducer configuration. This property makes selection of appropriate modes more flexible. Results of calculations are partially verified experimentally.

  • Subarray Beam-space Adaptive Beamforming Combined with Array Shape
           Estimation based on Non-Acoustic Sensor
    • Abstract: To address the issue of serious decline in performance of the array signal processing caused by the towed array shape distortion during maneuvering, this paper presents a new method of subarray beam-space adaptive beamforming combined with an array shape estimation method based on non-acoustic sensor. Firstly, the array shape through the approximate circular arc structure of the array segment between the adjacent sensor during maneuvering is preliminary calculated. Next, the final estimated array shape through a smooth processing method on the entire array shape by means of a calibration method using spline interpolation technique is achieved. This method is able to estimate the array shape in real time. The array steering vector based on the real-time estimation of the array shape is updated, using a subarray beam-space adaptive beamforming (SBABF) to reduce the demand of the number of the snapshots. And the beam-space covariance matrix converges fast within a few snapshots. The SBABF method combined with array shape estimation (AE-SBABF) was verified by simulation data and sea trial data processing results. During maneuvering, the AE-SBABF can not only improve the array processing gain of the target effectively, but also solve the left/right ambiguity problem well.

    • Abstract: We have obtained and studied the numerical and analytical dependences determining the distance dependences of decreasing sound pressure and orthogonal projections of the vibrational velocity vector for low-frequency signals generated in a waveguide in zones of interference maxima. As applied to a Pekeris waveguide and a multidirectional monopole source, convenient approximating expressions have been found that agree well with the exact decay laws for different vector–scalar field components in these zones.

  • Adaptation of a Hydroacoustic Communication Channel with OFDM Technology
           to the Negative Influence of a Drifting Ice Cover
    • Abstract: Field investigations of the influence of a drifting ice cover on the probability of bit errors in a hydroacoustic communication channel constructed by the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) technology were carried out. Quantitative estimates of the effect of drifting ice on a multifrequency phase-modulated OFDM signal reflected from the lower ice surface have been determined. The negative influence is seen in the broadening of the carrier frequency spectrum and in the reduction of the mutual correlation of phase-frequency shifts between carrier frequencies at the reception point. As a result of the spectrum broadening and jump-like changes in the phase of information signals, there is a sharp increase in the probability of bit errors during the reception. Methods are proposed for choosing optimum broadband OFDM-signal parameters allowing the negative influence of the ice cover to be neutralized and the signal transmission through a hydroacoustic communication channel with given characteristics to be implemented.

  • Spatial Resolution of Acoustic Microscopy in the Visualization of
           Interfaces inside a Solid
    • Abstract: The volumetric visualization of materials and inner boundaries of a joint is one of the fields in which long-focus high-frequency beams are used. Visualization is carried out using beams that passed through the immersion–sample interface and changed their geometry due to differences in the refraction of rays being incident at different angles on the interface. The beam structure is substantially distorted upon refraction and transforms into a caustic. The problem of spatial resolution in the formation of acoustic images of the microstructure in the material bulk is relevant. This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the spatial resolution with consideration for refractive aberrations in the formation of images of interfaces that are located at a considerable depth in the sample bulk. The results of the experimental visualization of the interface between jointed materials are presented. It is shown that the theoretical estimate is in good agreement with the experimental value of the resolution for beams of longitudinal waves converging in the sample volume.

  • Horizontal Anisotropy of Dynamic Noise in Deep and Shallow Water
    • Abstract: The paper describes a theoretical study of horizontal anisotropy of dynamic ocean noise. It is shown that the anisotropic distribution of the ocean noise field is governed by the effect of its scattering by wind waves. The dependence of the degree of noise anisotropy on the mode number and wind speed is discussed.

  • Study of Acoustic Noise during Gas Filtration through a Porous Medium
    • Abstract: — As fluids and gases move through porous media, they generate acoustic noise. It is shown that the shape of the noise spectra is determined by the properties of the fluid and the porous reservoir, as well as by the flow regime. Our study has experimentally confirmed the conclusions that the location of sound intensity maxima are independent of the rate of fluid filtration through a porous medium. The criterion for the occurrence of filtration noise as a fluid moves through a porous medium is determined. The dependence of the sound intensity maximum on the fluid filtration rate is studied. The relationship between the porosity and permeability of porous media samples and the character of the filtration noise spectra is considered. The obtained experimental data can be used to create a sound generation model for gas filtration through a porous medium.

  • Mapping Microbubble and Ultrasound Spatio-temporal Interaction by M-mode
           Imaging: The Study of Feasibility
    • Abstract: Ultrasound (US) and microbubble (MB) interaction is an important factor in the research of bioacoustics, as well as targeted drug and gene delivery. In this study, we demonstrate the feasibility of pulse−echo M-mode imaging system to be used for the visualization and quantification of US–MB interaction in both spatial and temporal dimensions. The system incorporates an exposure chamber with the cell–MB suspension, a 2.7 MHz focused US transducer, a US pulser–receiver and the customized LabView software. The results of cell and MB interaction obtained after M-mode image analysis have showed the US–MB interaction to be non-uniform in space and non-stationary in time. In order to quantify the spatio-temporal US–MB interaction, we have introduced the time function of spatial homogeneity dynamics. We have observed that the effective duration of interaction can be characterized at the predefined threshold of spatial homogeneity. For example, at the US excitation of 360 kPa peak negative pressure (15 bursts transmitted at 80 Hz pulse repetition frequency), the US–MB interaction persists for more than 5 seconds in the range at 4 mm depth of the exposure chamber with more than 50% of homogeneity. The system proposed in this assay is feasible for the characterization of US–MB interaction and can be exploited to optimize the MB concentration and/or the US excitation parameters.

  • Acoustics of Dolphins and Fish (Review)
    • Abstract: The review analyzes the research and development associated with dolphin and fish acoustics. The main focus is on the structure of echolocation and communication sounds of dolphins under conditions of intense noise impact. Sounds were recorded and emitted directly on the head of a dolphin at the hypothetical input points for acoustic information. The study also involved sounds within the nasal passage in order to more accurately localize emission sources. Fish sounds were recorded in the tank in which they were kept. The analysis showed that in order to raise their noise immunity, dolphins can intentionally change the structure of emitted sound signals when impacted by extremely intense noise. Hypotheses on the fish sound emission mechanism are proffered.

  • Radiation of Sound from the Open End of a Duct Simulating an Air Inlet
           under Static Conditions and in a Flow
    • Abstract: The paper presents the results of comparative experimental studies on the effect of a significant difference in the radiation patterns of individual acoustic modes from an open duct in steady-state and in-flight modes in the AC-2 anechoic chamber. When there is an incoming flow, the directivity changes and the amplitude of the maximum of individual modes may vary severalfold. This effect was originally discovered by numerical simulation, and the need to experimentally confirm this difference in the characteristics of individual modes set the task of developing a new technique for projection of the results of acoustic bench tests of aircraft engines to in-flight conditions within an airplane.

  • Influence of Hydrodynamic Processes Generated by 1.94-μm Pulsed Laser
           Radiation on Daphnia magna Crustaceans
    • Abstract: The hydrodynamic processes occurring in water under the action of pulsed laser radiation with a power of 20 W, wavelength of 1.94 μm, and a pulse duration of 100 ns were investigated. Such radiation leads the excitation of jet flows in water, as well as microbubbles and broadband acoustic vibrations. It was established that the main energy of these vibrations lies within the range of 10–15 kHz; they are excited according to the thermal cavitation mechanism and the regime corresponds to superintense nucleate boiling. It was shown that laser-induced hydrodynamic processes exert a pronounced biological effect on Daphnia magna crustaceans, leading to their increased fertility for acoustic doses of 35 and 350 J/m2. The experimental data and theoretical estimates show that stimulation of the reproductive function in crustaceans is due to the action of laser-induced low-intensity broadband acoustic vibrations and is not associated with temperature effects. The death of crustaceans and appearance of individuals with maldevelopments were observed for the maximum exposure (300 s). It is shown that the negative effects are related only to the effect of high-temperature microjets on Daphnias.

  • Acoustic Scattering from a Cylindrical Shell with Double Internal Rigid
    • Abstract: The acoustic scattering from an infinite cylindrical shell with double internal rigid plates at normal incidence is studied by theoretical and experimental approaches. The two rigid plates are attached to the shell along lines parallel to the shell axis symmetrically. The dominant feature of frequency-angle spectra is the interference fringes caused by the reflection waves of attachments in the illuminated region and specular reflection. For a cylindrical shell with double internal plates, there may be several attachments in the illuminated region simultaneously. There will be bright spots when two interference fringes caused by two attachments in the illuminated region intersect, while only interference fringes can be observed for one attachment in the illuminated region. Theoretical and experimental results show that the number of attachments in illuminated region can significantly affect the scattering characteristics, and it is a prominent feature to identify the location of internal plates.

  • Study of the Distribution of Reverberation over Doppler Frequencies in a
           Deep-Sea Bistatic Experiment
    • Abstract: The paper describes the results of an experiment on studying long-range surface reverberation in the deep-water part of the Black Sea. The experiment employed tone pulses with a filling frequency of 2 kHz and a duration sufficient for narrowband spectral analysis. The source and receiver of acoustic signals were spatially offset in the water area; therefore, directional reception and time strobing made it possible to study different situations: forward scattering, bistatic scattering, and monostatic (back) scattering. The paper analyzes the Doppler scattering spectra for different values of the bistatic scattering angle.

  • Estimating the Amplitude of Wind Waves by Correlation Analysis of the
           Reverberation Signal
    • Abstract: Correlation analysis of low-frequency reverberation signals has been carried out by decomposing the reverberation into reference functions, formed as a set of signals reflected from a point scatterer moving along a circular trajectory. The choice of the reference signal is related to the model of sound scattering by inhomogeneities (bubbles) occurring in the near-surface layer and moving together with the orbital currents of wind waves. The study demonstrated that the correlation functions differ significantly (by 5–6 dB) for the region of position and negative Doppler frequencies of reverberation signals. A stable increase has been revealed for the maximum of the correlation function at certain radii of scatterer motion, which are related to the amplitudes of wind waves.

  • Frequency Range of Compression for Discrimination of Acoustic Signals with
           Complex Spectra
    • Abstract: Psychophysical experiments on listeners with normal hearing were conducted to discriminate the rippled spectra of an acoustic signal against maskers with different positions of the spectral band relative to the signal band. As the signal level changed from 50 to 80 dB SPL, the on-frequency masker level changed by 29 dB, whereas the low-frequency masker level (the position of the center of the spectral band was from –1.25 to –1 octave relative to the signal) changed by 8.7–9.8 dB. These results are interpreted as 0.3 dB/dB compression of responses to the signal and no compression of the effect of low-frequency maskers. If the spectral bands of the signal and masker partially overlap, discrimination of the spectral structure occurs predominantly in the part of the spectrum that does not overlap the masker spectrum and is subjected to low-frequency masking that is not compressed.

  • Measuring the Impulse Response of an Acoustic MLS Signal in a Moving
    • Abstract: The paper presents the results of an experiment that uses the MLS technique to measure the impulse response when a signal passes through an air jet. The data are compared with the numerical simulation results obtained by solving the equation for sound propagation in a steady flow using a finite-difference method. It is shown that the longitudinal component of the flow causes drift and focusing of the signal.
