Report on the Reflection of a Sound Pulse Normally Incident in a Liquid Medium Upon a Plane Solid Plate
[Technical Report, Formal Report]
NAVAL RESEARCH LAB WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The reflection of plane wave sound pulses normally incident in a liquid medium upon a plane solid non-dissipative plate backed by a medium of negligible elasticity is theoretically analyzed. A general solution of the problem is obtained by resolving the incident pulse into its steady state components and recombining them after reflection for the reflected pulse. Certain special cases, such as the rectangular pulse and the damped sine pulse, are given special considerations.
