INTRODUCTION TO SONAR TRANSDUCER DESIGN
A comprehensive introduction to sonar transducer design, complete with real world examples, step-by-step instruction, and detailed mathematical review
In Introduction to Sonar Transducer Design, renowned sensor engineer Dr. John C. Cochran delivers an instructive and comprehensive exploration of the foundations of sonar transducer design perfect for beginning and experienced professional transducer designers. The book offers a detailed mathematical review of the subject, as well as fulsome design examples.
Beginning with a description of acoustic wave propagation, along with a review of radiation from a variety of sources, the book moves on to discuss equivalent circuit models that explain wave propagation in solids and liquids. The book reviews examples of projectors and hydrophones accompanied by complete mathematical solutions. All included math is developed from first principles to a final solution using an intuitive, step-by-step approach.
Introduction to Sonar Transducer Design offers professionals and students the analytical tools and assumptions required for start-to-finish transducer design. It also provides:
Perfect for sonar system engineers, particularly those involved in defense, Introduction to Sonar Transducer Design will also earn a place in the libraries of acoustic, audio, underwater communication, and naval engineers.
