Acoustic Transmission Loss by Single-Profile Ray Tracing (Program RTRACE).

Pagination or Media Count:
A program called RTRACE for the calculation of underwater acoustic transmission loss by ray tracing and summation has been written for NRLs CDC-3800 computer. RTRACE uses a single-profile, flat-bottom model of the medium with an inverse quadratic function of depth to interpolate in the sound-speed profile. Random- or coherent-phase intensities may be calculated and results may be printed or plotted, along with detailed ray histories and a ray trajectory plot.
