Influence of Bottom Irregularities on Caustic Beam Propagation in Oceanic Waveguides

Influence of Bottom Irregularities on Caustic Beam Propagation in Oceanic Waveguides Using the geometrical acoustics approximation and parabolic equation, we investigated the regularities in the spatial distribution of the acoustic field intensity generated by interaction between a caustic beam and bottom irregularities in a relatively shallow oceanic waveguide with an underwater sound channel open to the bottom. It is shown that when certain conditions are met, a multibeam structure of the spatial distribution of the acoustic field intensity is formed in the oceanic waveguide. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acoustical Physics Springer Journals

Abstract

Using the geometrical acoustics approximation and parabolic equation, we investigated the regularities in the spatial distribution of the acoustic field intensity generated by interaction between a caustic beam and bottom irregularities in a relatively shallow oceanic waveguide with an underwater sound channel open to the bottom. It is shown that when certain conditions are met, a multibeam structure of the spatial distribution of the acoustic field intensity is formed in the oceanic waveguide.
