Paper Title:
Numerical Analysis of a New-Style Ultrasonic Linear Array
  Abstract

In order to reduce the field of the acoustic radiation and improve the efficiency of energy using, a new-style ultrasonic linear array is present, which base on the special structural of the acoustic field produced by the cylindrical acoustic lens. The new-style linear array is composed of numbers of cylindrical acoustic lens, each lens act as an element distributed in a line along the width direction. Define x-direction is the direction of wave propagate. We have studied the acoustic field theoretically and have analyzed it numerically. Found that acoustic field have a better directivity in y-direction and the radiation field is much smaller than the traditional linear array, at the same time the focus ability is appear in the Z-direction if we control the number of element and the distance of center-to-center spacing of each element. This paper is helpful to the change and development of traditional liner array.
