Abstract:

A series of bottom reflection losses are presented in graphical form to show the contribution of shear waves when included in the theoretical acoustic model for bottom sediments. The analysis illustrates the effect of introducing shear waves in the more complicated theoretical model for viscoelastic solids. This memorandum has been prepared because it is believed that the information may be useful in this form to others at NUWC and to a few persons outside NUWC. This memorandum should not be construed as a report since its only function is to present limited supplementary information on previously published theoretical work. Author
