The objective was to determine if a pressure release boundary condition can be achieved by coating an elastic shell with a visco-elastic material. One necessary condition is that the coating must acoustically decouple the shell from the scattering problem. Two closed cell rubbers and two cork- rubber composites (nitrile and neoprene based) were investigated. The dynamic viscoelastic constants of the materials were determined by wave propagation techniques. The far field scattering form functions for an infinite cylindrical shell coated with the viscoelastic material were calculated using the complete elastic equations of motion. The form functions were experimentally measured for the different materials at different thicknesses as verification of the theory. A thick finite right cylindrical shell was coated with .25 inches of closed cell neoprene and the normalized scattered pressure measured. The pressure release normalized scattered pressure was determined for the end on incident plane wave case using the acoustic radiation Simplified Helmholtz Integral Program (SHIP)
