Pulsed PVDF Transducer Fields — Comparison of Theory and Experiment
A series of theoretical programs have been developed for the prediction of the radiated pressure fields of transient radiators in the form of discs and annuli. Such transducers have been constructed using polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) polymer film, and their pressure fields sampled in two-dimensional planes following transient excitation. It is shown that good agreement is possible between theory and experiment for such transducers.
