Abstract : BEAMPLOT is a Fortran program designed to simulate the power response of an arbitrary, focused hydrophone array to an incoming plane wave with or without pattern multiplication as desired. It is used with a three-dimensional plot routine to display output values as a response surface. The program is useful in the study of response dependence on such factors as focal direction, delays due to hydrophone positioning, signal frequency, and hydrophone weighting. (Author)
