  • High-frequency diffraction by a narrow hyperboloid of revolution
    • Authors: I. V. Andronov
      Pages: 133 - 140
      Abstract: Abstract High-frequency diffraction of a plane acoustic wave incident at a small angle to the axis of a narrow hyperboloid of revolution is considered. By the parabolic equation method in spheroidal coordinates, the leading term of field asymptotics in the near-surface boundary layer is constructed in the form of an integral involving Whittaker functions. Difficulties associated with its calculation are considered. Results obtained for the field at the surface of a perfectly rigid hyperboloid are presented. They reproduce the predicted high-frequency diffraction effects.

  • Impedance approach to designing efficient vibration energy absorbers
    • Authors: Y. I. Bobrovnitskii; K. D. Morozov; T. M. Tomilina
      Pages: 141 - 147
      Abstract: Abstract The concept introduced previously by the authors on the best sound absorber having the maximum allowable efficiency in absorbing the energy of an incident sound field has been extended to arbitrary linear elastic media and structures. Analytic relations have been found for the input impedance characteristics that the best vibrational energy absorber should have. The implementation of these relations is the basis of the proposed impedance method of designing efficient vibration and noise absorbers. We present the results of a laboratory experiment that confirms the validity of the obtained theoretical relations, and we construct the simplest best vibration absorber. We also calculate the parameters and demonstrate the efficiency of a dynamic vibration absorber as the best absorber.

    • Authors: A. V. Bochkarev; A. I. Zemlyanukhin; L. I. Mogilevich
      Pages: 148 - 153
      Abstract: Abstract A new generalized sixth-order nonintegrable equation is derived to model axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation in an inhomogeneous cylindrical shell interacting with a nonlinear elastic medium. Exact soliton-like solutions to this equation are constructed with allowance for geometric and physical nonlinearities, both individually and in combination.

  • Diagnostics of elastic properties of a planar interface between two rough
           media using surface acoustic waves
    • Authors: A. I. Kokshaiskii; A. I. Korobov; N. V. Shirgina
      Pages: 154 - 158
      Abstract: Abstract The results of experimental studies on the nonlinear elastic properties of a planar interface between two media are presented—an optically polished glass substrate and flat samples with different degrees of roughness. The nonlinear elastic properties of the interfaces between two media were investigated by the spectral method using surface acoustic waves (SAWs). The effect of external pressure applied to the interface on the efficiency of the generation of the second SAW harmonic was studied. Using the measured amplitudes of the first and second harmonics of the SAW that passes along the interface, the second-order nonlinear acoustic parameter was calculated as a function of the external pressure applied to the sample at a fixed amplitude of a probing wave. It was revealed that the nonlinear parameter of the SAW is a nonmonotonic function of the pressure at the boundary. The results were analyzed on the basis of an elastic contact nonlinearity, and it is concluded that these results can be used in nondestructive testing for roughness and waviness of surfaces of flat solids.

           sensing of biodiesel in a binary mixture of diesel through optical and
           acoustic waves
    • Authors: Gaurav Sharma; Sushil Kumar; Vivek Singh
      Pages: 159 - 167
      Abstract: Abstract The potentiality of a phoxonic crystal for sensing of biodiesel in a binary mixture of diesel and biodiesel is theoretically investigated. Using the transfer matrix method, the transmission of acoustic and optical waves through a periodic one-dimensional crystal of Si–SiO2 layers is studied. A pass band is created in the band gap region by introducing a cavity in the considered one-dimensional crystal structure. This pass band can also be considered as a defect mode, and it is found that its position is highly dependent on mole concentration of binary mixture of biodiesel and diesel present in the cavity. The sensitivity of the sensor for a binary mixture of biodiesel and diesel in the cavity with various mole concentrations is estimated. Simulated results provide a valuable guidance for designing a phoxonic crystal sensor consisting of a defect layer.

  • Features of the energy structure of acoustic fields in the ocean with
           two-dimensional random inhomogeneities
    • Authors: O. E. Gulin; I. O. Yaroshchuk
      Pages: 168 - 174
      Abstract: Abstract The paper is devoted to the analytic study and numerical simulation of mid-frequency acoustic signal propagation in a two-dimensional inhomogeneous random shallow-water medium. The study was carried out by the cross section method (local modes). We present original theoretical estimates for the behavior of the average acoustic field intensity and show that at different distances, the features of propagation loss behavior are determined by the intensity of fluctuations and their horizontal scale and depend on the initial regular parameters, such as the emission frequency and size of sound losses in the bottom. We establish analytically that for the considered waveguide and sound frequency parameters, mode coupling effect has a local character and weakly influences the statistics. We establish that the specific form of the spatial spectrum of sound velocity inhomogeneities for the statistical patterns of the field intensity is insignificant during observations in the range of shallow-water distances of practical interest.

  • Suppression of reverberation distortions of a receiver signal using the
           water tank transfer function
    • Authors: A. E. Isaev; A. S. Nikolaenko; I. V. Chernikov
      Pages: 175 - 184
      Abstract: Abstract The paper considers a method for suppressing the reverberant distortions of an underwater sound receiver signal during receiver calibration in a laboratory water tank. The method is based on using the water tank transfer function, which is a complex frequency-dependent coefficient that establishes, for the point of signal reception, the relation between the sound pressures in the reverberant sound field of the water tank and in the free sound field. The procedure for experimentally obtaining the water tank transfer function is considered. Examples of suppressing reverberant distortions during noise and pulse sound reception are presented.

      Abstract: Abstract We study the phase characteristics of echo signals during vertical acoustic sounding of a water medium with narrowly directed emission. We experimentally demonstrate the possibility of measuring the dependence of the phase of echo signals on the delay for a probe signal with linear frequency modulation. We substantiate the possibility of remote determination of sound velocity variations in water.

  • Sound attenuation on an ocean shelf at short ranges from a source in the
           presence of surface waves
    • Authors: A. A. Lunkov; V. G. Petnikov; A. D. Chernousov
      Pages: 190 - 195
      Abstract: Abstract The effect of surface roughness on the attenuation of low-frequency acoustic waves on a shallow ocean shelf is analyzed using numerical simulation. We focus here on transmission loss during propagation at short (less than 50 water layer depths) ranges from the sound source. The effect is considered both for a soft and hard bottom, when the sound velocity in the bottom is, respectively, lower or higher than the sound velocity in seawater. It is shown that to correctly predict losses at a short range in the presence of a rough upper boundary, it is necessary to take into account the interaction of both propagation and leaky modes. In the case of a hard bottom compared to a low-velocity one, the effect of surface roughness on propagation turned out to be the most pronounced.

  • Sonar inter-ping noise field characterization during cetacean behavioral
           response studies off Southern California
    • Authors: Shane Guan; Brandon L. Southall; Joseph F. Vignola; John A. Judge; Diego Turo
      Pages: 204 - 215
      Abstract: Abstract The potential negative effects of sound, particularly active sonar, on marine mammals has received considerable attention in the past decade. Numerous behavioral response studies are ongoing around the world to examine such direct exposures. However, detailed aspects of the acoustic field (beyond simply exposure level) in the vicinity of sonar operations both during real operations and experimental exposures have not been regularly measured. For instance, while exposures are typically repeated and intermittent, there is likely a gradual decay of the intense sonar ping due to reverberation that has not been well described. However, it is expected that the sound field between successive sonar pings would exceed natural ambient noise within the sonar frequency band if there were no sonar activity. Such elevated sound field between the pings may provide cues to nearby marine mammals on source distances, thus influencing potential behavioral response. Therefore, a good understanding of the noise field in these contexts is important to address marine mammal behavioral response to MFAS exposure. Here we investigate characteristics of the sound field during a behavioral response study off California using drifting acoustic recording buoys. Acoustic data were collected before, during, and after playbacks of simulated mid-frequency active sonar (MFAS). An incremental computational method was developed to quantify the inter-ping sound field during MFAS transmissions. Additionally, comparisons were made between inter-ping sound field and natural background in three distinctive frequency bands: low-frequency (<3 kHz), MFA-frequency (3–4.5 kHz), and high-frequency (>4.5 kHz) bands. Results indicate significantly elevated sound pressure levels (SPLs) in the inter-ping interval of the MFA-frequency band compared to natural background levels before and after playbacks. No difference was observed between inter-ping SPLs and natural background levels in the low- and high-frequency bands. In addition, the duration of elevated inter-ping sound field depends on the MFAS source distance. At a distance of 900–1300 m from the source, inter-ping sound field at the exposure frequency is observed to remain 5 dB above natural background levels for approximately 15 s, or 65%, of the entire inter-ping interval. However, at a distance of 2000 m, the 5 dB elevation of the inter-ping SPLs lasted for just 7 s, or 30% of the inter-ping interval. The prolonged elevation of sound field beyond the brief sonar ping at such large distances is most likely due to volume reverberation of the marine environment, although multipath propagation may also contribute to this.

  • The comparative efficiency of classical and fast projection algorithms in
           the resolution of weak hydroacoustic signals
    • Authors: G. S. Malyshkin
      Pages: 216 - 228
      Abstract: Abstract The relationships for optimizing a selective estimate of the correlation matrix of classical (initial and modified) and fast projection algorithms in a complex noise situation were determined. Model investigations on the comparison of the resolution of classical optimized algorithms with the characteristics of two variants of fast projection algorithms were performed. The algorithms were compared using the criterion of a decrease in the time and reduction of the angular zone of the loss of a contact with a weak target when it intersects the path of an intense interfering signal. The relationships that correspond to the most economical realization of the fast algorithm were determined.

  • Generalized sidelobe canceler beamforming applied to medical ultrasound
    • Authors: Jiake Li; Xiaodong Chen; Yi Wang; Yifeng Shi; Daoyin Yu
      Pages: 229 - 236
      Abstract: Abstract A generalized sidelobe canceler (GSC) approach is proposed for medical ultrasound imaging. The approach uses a set of adaptive weights instead of traditional non-adaptive weights, thus suppressing the interference and noise signal of echo data. In order to verify the validity of the proposed approach, Field II is applied to obtain the echo data of synthetic aperture (SA) for 13 scattering points and circular cysts. The performance of GSC is compared with SA using boxcar weights and Hamming weights, and is quantified by the full width at half maximum (FWHM) and peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR). Imaging of scattering point utilizing SA, SA (hamming), GSC provides FWHMs of 1.13411, 1.68910, 0.36195 mm and PSNRs of 60.65, 57.51, 66.72 dB, respectively. The simulation results of circular cyst also show that GSC can perform better lateral resolution than non-adaptive beamformers. Finally, an experiment is conducted on the basis of actual echo data of an ultrasound system, the imaging result after SA, SA (hamming), GSC provides PWHMs of 2.55778, 3.66776, 1.01346 mm at z = 75.6 mm, and 2.65430, 3.76428, 1.27889 mm at z = 77.3 mm, respectively.

  • Features of excitation and detection of magnetoacoustic emission in
           ferromagnetic objects
    • Authors: V. N. Kostin; D. Yu. Filatenkov; Yu. A. Chekasina; O. N. Vasilenko; E. D. Serbin
      Pages: 237 - 244
      Abstract: Abstract We study how the conditions of excitation and detection influence the magnetoacoustic emission (MAE) parameters of ferromagnets. For a large group of metal ferromagnet samples differing in physical properties and dimensions, the dependence of the MAE amplitude on the frequency of the remagnetizing field has a similar nonmonotonic character. In all probed cases, the maximum of the amplitude corresponds to a field frequency of 3–5 Hz. The decrease in the MAE amplitude for a subsequent increase in the frequency of the alternating field is related to the action of eddy currents. It is shown that the size of the field corresponding to the MAE maximum, which for a given time dependence of the remagnetizing field can be determined by the time shift in an oscillogram, can be a new parameter of the structuroscopy of ferromagnets.

  • Exact solutions of equation of transverse vibrations for a bar with a
           specific cross section variation law
    • Authors: M. A. Mironov
      Pages: 1 - 6
      Abstract: Abstract Flexural wave propagation along a bar whose thickness smoothly decreases down to zero within its end piece is considered. The propagation velocity tends to zero as the tapered end of the bar is approached, and the time of wave propagation to the tapered end is infinite. As a consequence, waves propagating along the bar are not reflected from the end. Previous quantitative study of the effect in the WKB approximation shows that, in the case of parabolic tapering, the WKB approximation yields a uniform asymptotics, which is valid (or invalid) for any of the bar’s cross sections. In the case of a bar with parabolic tapering, the equation of flexural vibrations of the bar has exact analytic solutions in the form of power functions. Based on these solutions, a modified WKB approximation is proposed to solve equations for bars with nonparabolic thickness variation laws. The input impedance of a bar with a parabolic tapering is calculated and analyzed.

  • An arbitrary-shaped acoustic cloak with merits beyond the internal and
           external cloaks
    • Authors: Baolei Li; Tinghua Li; Jun Wu; Ming Hui; Gang Yuan; Yongsheng Zhu
      Pages: 45 - 53
      Abstract: Abstract Based on transformation acoustics, an arbitrary-shaped acoustic cloak capable of functioning as an information exchange-enabling internal cloak and a movement-allowing external cloak is presented. The general expressions of material parameters for the acoustic cloaks with arbitrarily conformal or non-conformal boundaries are derived, and then the performances of developed cloaks are validated by full-wave simulations. Finally, the different characteristics of the linear and nonlinear transformations-based cloaks are compared and analyzed. The proposed cloak could lead to wider applications beyond that of normal cloaks, since it effectively compensates the insufficiencies of traditional internal and external cloaks. Besides, this work also provides a new method to design bifunctional device and suggests an alternative way to make a large object invisible.

  • Formation of a weakly diverging caustic beam in an underwater sound
           channel open to the bottom
    • Authors: Yu. V. Petukhov; V. G. Burdukovskaya; E. L. Borodina
      Pages: 63 - 75
      Abstract: Abstract The paper studies the patterns manifesting themselves in the formation and propagation of caustic and weakly diverging beams using the geometric acoustic approximation and mode theory applied to the simplest model of an underwater sound channel open to the bottom in the form of the bilinear dependence of the square of the refractive index on depth. It is established that when a vertical array emitting a tonal sound signal is located at a certain critical depth, the multimode caustic beam which forms near the reference ray horizontally departing from its center and which predominates in intensity is simultaneously the most weakly diverging beam. It is shown that the reference ray of such a weakly diverging caustic beam corresponds to the smoothest minimum for the dependence of the length of the ray cycle on their angle of departure from the center of the array and to the depth level of revolution at the critical depth characteristic of the given oceanic waveguide.

  • Characteristics of dual element ultrasonic transducers in the long pulse
           radiation mode
    • Authors: V. V. Kazakov; A. G. Sanin
      Pages: 104 - 112
      Abstract: Abstract The frequency and transfer characteristics of dual element ultrasonic transducers are theoretically and experimentally investigated in the long pulse radiation mode for the case where one of the piezoelectric elements is connected to a control circuit in the form of an inductance coil or a resistor. For the controlled damper and controlled layer cases, the characteristic features of radiation as functions of the control circuit parameters are determined, as well as the conditions for an increase in ultrasonic wave radiation power. With certain conditions being satisfied, we demonstrate the possibility of amplitude modulation of the emitted ultrasonic wave by periodic switching of control circuit elements.

  • Pressure potential and stability analysis in an acoustical noncontact
    • Authors: J. Li; C. J. Liu; W. J. Zhang
      Pages: 125 - 131
      Abstract: Abstract Near field acoustic traveling wave is one of the most popular principles in noncontact manipulations and transportations. The stability behavior is a key factor in the industrial applications of acoustical noncontact transportation. We present here an in-depth analysis of the transportation stability of a planar object levitated in near field acoustic traveling waves. To more accurately describe the pressure distributions on the radiation surface, a 3D nonlinear traveling wave model is presented. A closed form solution is derived based on the pressure potential to quantitatively calculate the restoring forces and moments under small disturbances. The physical explanations of the effects of fluid inertia and the effects of non-uniform pressure distributions are provided in detail. It is found that a vibration rail with tapered cross section provides more stable transportation than a rail with rectangular cross section. The present study sheds light on the issue of quantitative evaluation of stability in acoustic traveling waves and proposes three main factors that influence the stability: (a) vibration shape, (b) pressure distribution and (c) restoring force/moment. It helps to provide a better understanding of the physics behind the near field acoustic transportation and provide useful design and optimization tools for industrial applications.
