The goals of this thesis are (1) to design and test a two-axis surface wave source and two-axis surface wave receiver and (2) to investigate the use of surface waves to detect buried objects in water saturated sand. Results of measurements confirm the ability to generate particle motions in water saturated sand consistent with surface wave excitation. However, limitations in the size of the test tank prohibit a thorough investigation of the ability of the source and receiver to selectively excite and detect surface waves

Naval Postgraduate School, 1995-12);Radio frequency noise is often the limiting factor in the ability of a communications receiver to discern a desired signal from man made interference. The predominate man made radio noise source in the high frequency radio ...
