Abstract:

Air bubbles in the water can degrade the performance of a ship-borne sonar by generating noise or by diffracting or absorbing acoustical signals. A program of full-scale experimental work is under way to discover which portions of a ships hull are likely to encounter bubbles and to what extent. It is in support of this experimental program that we have begun to study theoretical methods of predicting bubble paths, and in particular, of predicting the deviation between bubble paths and the paths of the fluid particles.
