Abstract : A complete analysis of acoustic bulk wave propagation in arbitrary, anisotropic, piezoelectric media is presented. All mechanical and electrical quantities of interest are calculated. Propagation loss can be computed using the viscosity tensor approach. The entire analysis is implemented by a computer program which is described in detail. A complete listing and sample input-output data are provided. Thus all necessary information for the quantitative design of high-frequency, low-insertion-loss, long-time-delay, microwave-acoustic-bulk-wave delay lines and other signal processing devices is provided.
