Abstract : An analytic and experimental investigation is described of the mechanical and acoustic behavior of a 1/7 scale submarine-like model hull section in air and water environments. A relatively new analytic approach, the point-mass technique, is utilized to determine the dynamic behavior of the model and resulting acoustic fields. Experimental results are discussed and compared with the theoretical results. (Author)
