Abstract:

A method has been developed to measure the total output acoustic power of modern sonar transducers in existing unlined, small-size sonar test tanks. The method depends upon two acoustic measurements the steady-state reverberant power and the rate at which energy is absorbed by the walls. The energy absorption is determined by measuring the reverberation decay rate. Author
