Abstract : A mathematical model has been developed for the Class V flextensional underwater acoustic transducer. A computer program corresponding to this model, written in Fortran IV G level for the IBM 360-75, has been developed which can be used to give results for the transducer in a vacuum (or in air). This program can also be run in conjunction with the program developed by Hess, which gives the pressures on an arbitrary body vibrating with a specified velocity distribution, to obtain the results of the transducer in an acoustical media.
