A sonochemical reaction field in a rectangular glass cell driven by two kinds of ultrasonic transducer was visualized optically and compared with a distribution of multi-bubble sonoluminescence. Fluid motion in the cell was measured using a laser Doppler velocimeter. In a standing-wave type reactor driven at 140 kHz, the reaction field formed layers and was not uniform accompanying fluid motion at high intensity. In a horn-type reactor of 19.5 kHz, the luminescing region was confined in very close vicinity to the horn tip in contrast with broad region of fast fluid motion.

    Among different problems which are of interest for single bubble sonoluminescence (SBSL) the stability of bubble shape is one of the most important. It was investigated earlier mainly with the radial displacement approach. In this paper the volume displacement approach to the problem of bubble...

    When dissipation of the gas in bubbles is taken into account, the ideal discontinuity will be replaced by a thin layer. By application of the mirror-image method and of shock wave theory, the process of jet formation for a bubble near a rigid boundary is suggested. A numerical computation shows...

    Propagation of sound in a bubbly fluid can, if dissipation is neglected, be described by Korteweg de Vries' equation. This can be solved with the inverse scattering transform. Korteweg de Vries' equation is studied as an initial value problem with an N-wave as initial condition. The inverse...

    Waves in a liquid containing bubbles, distributed in it with density n(r), and waves in an elastic structure coupled with a number of oscillators are analysed, with the principal question being the influence of nonlinearity on the form of the wave. This form (a soliton, for example) is very...

    In HIFU applications to ultrasound surgery, it is important to intensify acoustic energy absorption in the focal region without increase of heating in the prefocal region. This regime may be achieved by using the mechanism of nonlinear absorption, which is more pronounced when sharp shocks are...
