Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results of calculations performed in the framework of the approximate approach developed by the authors are presented for the diffraction of sound waves by a stiff spheroid in an acoustic waveguide. The scattered sound field is analyzed as a function of the following parameters of the problem: the spheroid dimensions, its position relative to the sound source and the receiver, the vertical profile of sound velocity in the waveguide, and the acoustic parameters of the waveguide bottom.
