1
Active Sonar Equation

2
Adapting Passive Ideas Passive Case: From our Sonar Target Strength describes the fraction of energy reflecting back from the target

3
Reverberation Noise Reflections from non-target objects is greater that noise. Reverberation limited

4
Active Sonar – Materials Typical piezoelectric materials –Quartz –PZT -Lead zirconate titanate –Barium Titanate

5
Piezoelectricity a a+ a

6
Source Level for an Omni- directional projector

7
Electrical Efficiency Efficiency may range from 20% to 70% for most sonar applications

8
Directional Arrays Principle of Reciprocity

9
Transducer Sensitivity How many dB for 1 volt input? Input impedance Manufacturers typically advertise based on SV. To find SL, add 20logV.

10
Example Compute the source level for an circular piston projector of diameter = 1 meter radiating 10 kW acoustic power at a frequency of 15 kHz in water Piston array:

11
Cavitation (z in meters) S = Tranducer Surface Area Pressure Threshold Power Threshold
