Acoustic Scattering from Bi-Layered Cylindrical Shells: Influence of the Layers Thicknesses on the Guided Waves
The current work focuses on the study of acoustic scattering from bi-layered stainless steel-copper and copper-stainless steel cylindrical shells filled with air and immersed in water. This paper is interested in revealing the effects of physical and geometrical characteristics of the layers constituting the shells on the scattering phenomenon. The object of this work, is to study the influence of the layers thicknesses on guided waves, the overall thickness of the shells is fixed. The plane of modal identification was chosen to analyze the scattering phenomenon. We investigate the resonance trajectories of the guided waves, especially the curves change. The investigation and comparison made on resonance trajectories, show a shape change, a gradual deviation, or both, appear on the resonance trajectories of different guided waves, for the reduced cutoff frequencies of guided waves a sliding to higher and lower value are noticed. The interaction between guided waves is also manifested in the scattering phenomenon. The findings for the bi-layered cylindrical shells are then compared with those obtained for the mono-layered stainless steel and copper cylindrical shells. Then, this work is completed by an investigation on the reduced cut-off frequencies of the A 1 wave, that have been extracted for different possible values of the intermediary radius. In this part, to understand the observed phenomena, other examples of bi-layered cylindrical shells are introduced. The obtained results are analyzed and investigated.
