Abstract : The patent describes a transducers array supported by a plurality of interconnected longitudinal and lateral fiber-lass members which terminate in a rigid, rectangular frame work defining the limits of a transducer mounting area. All points of juncture between the fiber glass members and the rigid framework are frictionally secured to induce no coupling-induced internal stresses at the juncture points. By mounting the high-energy transducer elements on the fiber-glass members, a tendency for resonance and sympathetic vibration within the supporting structure is dampened to within tolerable limits.
