Abstract:

This report discusses five projects all of which involve basic theoretical research in nonlinear acoustics. 1 Pulsed Finite Amplitude Sound Beams are studied with a recently developed time domain computer algorithm that solves the KZK nonlinear parabolic wave equation. 2 Nonlinear Acoustic Wave Propagation in a Liquid Layer is a study of harmonic generation and acoustic soliton information in a liquid between a rigid and a free surface. 3 Nonlinear Effects in Asymmetric Cylindrical Sound Beams is a study of source asymmetries and scattering of sound by sound at high intensity. 4 Effects of Absorption on the Interaction of Sound Beams is a completed study of the role of absorption in second harmonic generation and scattering of sound by sound. 5 Parametric Receiving Arrays is a completed study of parametric reception in a reverberant environment.
