Project Details


PSU will develop detailed theory and experiments involving structure-fluid-acoustic interaction explaining the physical behavior of thermoacoutic projectors (TAPs). Numerical model will combine all the controlling steps from power input to acoustic wave generation to the propagation in outer fluid media. Power input to the computational domain will be used to determine the frequency dependent temperature variation and thermal diffusive length which governs the generation of thermoacoutic (TA) wave. TA wave will be used as driving force to simulate the vibration of the structure and produce acoustic wave in outer fluids (air or water). A high power LF device (
