PAFEC Vibroacoustics - Cylindrical array of piston transducers

Piston transducers can be used in cylindrical arrays to achieve greater power and control the directivity. The example below is a half model of an 8 (axial) x 40 (circumferential) cylindrical array. An axial plane of symmetry was used, in conjunction with the cyclic symmetry capability within the PAFEC Vibroacoustics program.
