Abstract : The reverberations produced by a completely flat surface separating two homogeneous isotropic fluids is investigated. There is no effort to include the effect of rough surfaces which would be a logical extension of the work presented. A derivation of the reverberated sound field produced by a pulsed source is presented. The reverberation is considered for several pulse shapes and compared with experimental results.
