Nonlinear Crosstransformation of Amplitude-Frequency Modulation of Quasi-Monochromatic Acoustic Signals
This work is devoted to the investigation of evolution of intense quasi-monochromatic signals in the case of infinite acoustic Reynolds numbers. The consideration is based on the zero viscocity limit solution of the Burgers equation, which reduces the Hopf-Cole solution to a "maximum" principle. This limit solution permits an easy way to get the profile of the waves, position of shocks and their velocities at arbitrary times. The process of transformation of an initial quasi-monochromatic wave into a sawtooth wave is considered. It is shown that the nonlinearity leads to suppression of the initial amplitude modulation and to the transformation of the initial frequency modulation into a shock amplitude modulation. The amplitude of the low frequency component generated by a quasi-monochromatic wave is found. It is shown that the interaction of this component with high frequency waves leads to phase modulation, which increases with distance. The amplitudes of the new components of the spectrum are found. It is shown that when the value of phase modulation is small, the amplitudes of the satellites do not depend on the distance or the number of harmonics of the primary wave.
