Description

Nonspecular reflection effects for ultrasonic beams incident from a fluid onto solid surfaces have been studied continuously since the early investigations by Schoch [1]. He calculated the reflected held for both the fluid-loaded halfspace and the plate using a series expansion for the phase of the reflection coefficient. A more accurate expression for Gaussian beam reflection has been derived by Bertoni and Tamir [2], who approximated the reflection coefficient by leading terms in a Laurent series, performing the resulting integrals analytically. Many researchers have contributed to this literature from the experimental [3–5], theoretical [6,7], and numerical sides [8,9].
