Abstract : The project is a continuation of a development program for flexural mode transducers and hydroacoustic technology. In the first task models will be used to generate tradeoff data for arrays which appear attractive for small vessel sonar systems. The second task will use the flexural mode transducer model to provide design guidelines for piezoelectric bender hydrophones. The third task will upgrade and extend the mathematical model of the hydroacoustic power amplifier to model the hydroacoustic power oscillator.
