Abstract : This book is the third volume of the author's series on Acoustic Radiation. The first chapter reviews the essentials of bondgraph modeling of underwater transducers. Chapters 2-7 cover fluid circuit transducers, flextensional transducers, theory of segmented piezoelectric stacks, theory of 3-D piezoelectric transducers. Chapter 8 develops the bondgraphs of many sonar transducers now in use. Keywords: Acoustic trandsducers; Bondgraph modeling; Modeling sonar sources; U.S. Navy sonar sources.
