Small source If the radius a of the piston is very small, the pressure amplitude p„ at the center is found to be p0 = pckaug- (15) Recalling Eqs. (1) and (2), we see that here the pressure amplitude is just ka times the value it has in a traveling plane wave. The nondimensional quantity ka is the ratio of the piston circumference lita to the wavelength X. A condition for validity of Eq. (15) is that ka be much less than 1. A reasonable application of this approximation would be to the tip of a probe oscillating in water or tissue at a low ultrasonic frequency, the tip diameter being of the order of a few millimeters.

23) and assuming that the gas-filled pore is, for this purpose, equivalent to a small bubble. These equations can be used to determine the radiation Mechanisms for Bioeffects of Ultrasound 43 force on a small particle at a short distance r from the center of a small spherical gas body of radius R0, which has been set into vibration at a frequency near resonance by an incident sound field. For this situation, the term in Eq. (23) involving the time-average of the potential energy density Ep can be neglected, since the kinetic energy density E^ is greatly elevated in the liquid near the vibrating surface of the gas body.

8 to 2 mm and frequencies from 20 to 26 kHz. 084. 16 MPa. The velocity amplitude is an important quantity in estimating the stresses exerted by microstreaming at the tip (see Sec. 2) and the pressure amplitude is important in determining the extent to which cavitation will occur during an application (see Sees. 5 and 6). Equation (14) can also be used to estimate the acoustic power radiated into free space by a small source. At distances r, large compared to the wavelength, the relationships in Eq.
