Acoustic wave incidence on a multilayer medium containing a bubbly fluid layer

  • D. A. Gubaidullin
  • Yu. V. Fedorov


The problem of acoustic wave reflection and transmission through a multilayer medium containing a bubbly fluid layer is considered. For the water-water with air bubbles-water model the wave reflection and transmission coefficients are calculated and compared with the experimental data. The problem parameters, at which these coefficients take extremum values, are determined. The influence of vapor within the bubbles on the acoustic wave transmission through a layer of a fluid with the vapor-gas bubbles is shown.
