The chief purpose of the book is to apply the general principles of compressional elastic wave theory in fluids to transmission in a liquid medium subject to solid and gaseous boundaries. The first chapter develops the usual general stress-strain relation for a three dimensional elastic medium and the resulting wave equation for the propagation of small disturbances from equilibrium. Chapter 2 discusses the general theory of the solution of the wave equation first in terms of rays and second in terms of normal modes. The next two chapters treat transmission in shallow and deep water, respectively, from the standpoints of both ray theory and normal mode solutions. Chapter 5 contains a treatment of a point source near a reflecting surface and other problems of reflection such as a corrugated boundary, a porous medium, three-layer reflectivity, etc. The final chapter discusses attenuation in the medium, including the usual viscosity and heat conduction mechanisms as well as diffraction and scattering effects.
