Homework Help: Book on transducers in marine or underwater acoustics

  1. Mar 28, 2005 #1
    Hey I'm hoping there are some people involved in marine acoustics here :)
    I was hoping that someone here could maybe recommend some good books or sites that exaplain the use of transducers in Marine Acousitcs.
    I just need to have an idea of what sort of transducer I'm looking at. The carrier frequency of the transducer I need is 10 kHz. I found one transducer that looks like it can be used for it but I'm not sure. It's a TC1035.
    Cheers for any recommendations :)

    Nevermind I've found some transducers that can be used in the situation outlined in my assignment.
    Does anyone know why you would use 10kHz transducer for a depth of 2 km??
    I found a couple of sites that say the cone angle is very high for these lower frequencies.
    I also saw that there is greater depth penetration for lower frequencies.
    But I also saw that the wideness of the cone angle comes at the expense of depth penetration.
    Anyway I'm a bit confused so any help would be great.
    Cheers :)
