Abstract:

As Vertical Line Arrays VLA are used at increasingly higher frequencies 3 kHz, the importance of the straightness of the array increases. Finite Element Analysis FEA has been used to estimate the shape of typical VLAs subject to currents in shallow water. Two typical VLA configurations have been modelled and the results presented.
