Transient excitation of insonated bubbles

Transient excitation of insonated bubbles
Transient excitation of insonated bubbles
When a previously non-oscillating bubble is first insonated, its radial motion can contain transients. Before the oscillation settles down to the steady-state, these transients may enhance the violence of the volume pulsations. The temperature attained within the bubble can be much greater than that reached during the steady-state motion. This phenomenon may contribute to the increased cavitational effects (such as sonoluminescence or ultrasonic bioeffects) observed when ultrasound is pulsed, and when the transducer and liquid sample are in relative motion

Abstract

When a previously non-oscillating bubble is first insonated, its radial motion can contain transients. Before the oscillation settles down to the steady-state, these transients may enhance the violence of the volume pulsations. The temperature attained within the bubble can be much greater than that reached during the steady-state motion. This phenomenon may contribute to the increased cavitational effects (such as sonoluminescence or ultrasonic bioeffects) observed when ultrasound is pulsed, and when the transducer and liquid sample are in relative motion
