Mechanics of Underwater Noise is an in-depth account of underwater noise and its mechanics, with emphasis on physical principles that underlie how noise is generated, transmitted by structures, and radiated into the sea. Topics covered range from sound waves in liquids to the fundamentals of acoustic radiation, as well as cavitation and structural vibrations. Comprised of 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the physics and mechanics of underwater noise, followed by a discussion on sound waves generated in liquids. The reader is then introduced to the fundamentals of acoustic radiation, paying particular attention to the general characteristics of noise sources, along with spherical and hydrodynamic sources. A general equation for sound generation is presented. Subsequent chapters deal with radiation by fluctuating-volume (monopole) and fluctuating-force (dipole) sources and by plate flexural vibrations; cavitation and propeller cavitation noise; and mechanical noise sources. This monograph is intended for workers involved in the field of underwater acoustics.
