Chapter Twelve

Radiation and scattering of sound by the boundary value method

Abstract

This chapter applies the boundary value method to solutions of the wave equation. Those treated are radiation from a pulsating infinite cylinder; radiation from an infinite line source; scattering from a rigid sphere by a plane wave and by point sources; radiation from a point source on a sphere; a spherical cap on a sphere; a rectangular cap on a sphere; a piston in a sphere; and radiation from an oscillating convex dome and from an oscillating concave dome in an infinite baffle.
