Paper Abstract

The study of low frequency, small size transducer was an important aspect for the development of the underwater acoustic transducer. The Class IV flextensional transducer was a typical low frequency, high-power and small size transducer. For decreasing its resonant frequency in the case of small size, a flextensional transducer with slotted shell was analyzed using finite element software ANSYS. A comparison between the flextensioanl transducer with slotted shell and the Class IV flextensional transducer was made. The maximum size of the shell is 200mm. The transmitting voltage response of the transducer reaches to 131dB with resonant frequency 600Hz in water. The transducer could radiate at low frequency with small size of the shell.
