I Acoustic radiation force

  1. May 2, 2017 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I want to calculate or rather simulate a particle movement by influence of a ultrasonic wave.
    I have read many times that I have to use the acoustic radiation force for calculating the movement of a particle but not why?

    At first I calculated the particle movement only with the velocity field and it doesn`t work but why?
    Is this only possible in the audible range of acoustic frequencies?

    Can you help me?

    Best regards
