Abstract : A shock analysis of a sonar transducer was conducted in AD-631 344. This report presents the results of a parametric study to optimize the shock resistance of the transducer. The explosion forces are considered as a hydraulic shock along the axis of the transducer and a mechanical shock normal to this axis. Results of the study indicate that relatively simple modifications can be made to this transducer to significantly improve both its mechanical and hydraulic shock resistance. (Author)
