Inhaltsangabe: This volume deals with the interaction of acoustic fields with bubbles in liquids. The principles of cavitation (generation of bubbles in liquids by rapid changes as those introduced by ultrasound) are expounded. When cavity bubbles implode they produce shock waves in the liquid. Components can be damaged by cavitation if it is induced by turbulent flow. These phenomena have important implications, particularly in underwater acoustics (the fastest growing field in acoustics research). Later chapters concentrate on cavitation due to ultrasound. This interdisciplinary research should be of interest to those engaged in research from sonochemistry to the sensitization of explosives. The physical processes involved are explained both by analogy and formulation. In this way, the concepts should be accessible to those of lesser mathematical ability.
This volume deals with the interaction of acoustic fields with bubbles in liquids, with emphasis on the principles of cavitation--the generation of bubbles in liquids by rapid changes, such as those introduced by ultrasound. When cavity bubbles implode they produce shock waves in the liquid. If cavitation is induced by turbulent flow, components can be damaged. These phenomena have important implications, particularly in underwater acoustics, one of the fastest growing fields in acoustics research. The Acoustic Bubble skillfully explains the physical processes involved in cavitation both by analogy and formulation, making the concepts accessible to those with a minimal background in mathematics. This book will be of great interest to those engaged in research in a wide range of areas, from sonochemistry to the sensitization of explosives.
"One can only effevesce with praise upon perusing The Acoustic Bubble, by T.G. Leighton. Here is a volume that is both comprehensive and readable--that informs the expert and the novice...The reader is well served by the author's careful attention to detail, his extensive table of symbols (14 pages!), his excellent use of photographs and graphics, an extraordinarily comprehensive bibliography, and, most of all, by his lucid physical descriptions of phenomena not only having to do with bubbles but also with a variety of physical systems that are related to foundations of the sciences that one must understand if one is to apply them to the bubble problem...The Acoustic Bubble is not only interesting reading, it is an extraordinarily useful reference for those working in or planning to work in the field...There's no trouble with this Bubble."
--Journal of the Acoustic Society of America
"The strength of this book lies in its effortless and enjoyable coverage of a wide swathe of rather intimidating literature and its unified mathematical approach...undoubtedly a major contribution to the field by an accomplished teacher, scientist and enthusiast."
--Physics in Medicine and Biology
"There is no doubt that this is the most comprehensive and accessible text on acoustic cavitation available...This is a required reference for scientists and, in particular, medical physicists interested in becoming aquainted with the mathematical description of bubble dynamics and the wealth of associated physical phenomena. It is user friendly, thorough in its treatment of the theory and encyclopaedic in its coverage of the experimental literature. I have no doubts that it will become a standard text."
