The Noise of Impinging Drops of Water

At the first moment of the impact of water drops on a boundary surface transient dipoletype of radiation is produced. Following on this a damped resonance vibration can appear, which is fed back to the air bubble which is eventually produced at the place of impact. Moreover the total sound radiation is determined in the main by radiation from the drops. The bubbles are shown both acoustically and optically through high speed photographs. In order to ascertain the influence of the water surface on the resonance frequency of the bubble different mechanisms of producing bubbles by single drops are examined. In addition to this artificial bubbles of known size are inserted which will allow a theoretical treatment so enabling a comparison between measurement and calculation.

In conclusion a sequence of sketches are taken from the photographs in order to show optically the processes described.
