An omnidirectional hydrophone having an elastic shell which is spheroidal so that the circumference of the shell about different axes changes differentially when the shell is subjected to pressure variations. The differences in circumference are advantageously measured by an optical fiber interferometer having one leg wound about the equatorial circumference of the shell and another leg wound about its meridional circumference. The shell may be an oblate spheroid having the ratio of its major axis to is minor axis greater than about (2-v)!, where v is Poisson's ratio of the shell material, so that the shell narrows along one axis and widens along the other when the shell is subjected to a pressure change.

Ghandehari, Mostafa; Pfiefer, Richard (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-02); NPS-53-009Let delta(n) denote the self-circumference of a regular polygon with n sides. It will be shown that delta (n) is monotonically increasing from 6 to 2 pi if n is twice and odd number, and monotonically decreasing from 8 to ...
Kwon, Young K. (Naval Postgraduate School, 1997-09-30); NPS-ME-97-006A shell formulation was developed from a three-dimensional solid. The shell element is an isoparametric element, and has four corner nodes at which there are three displacement and three rotations, independently. Therefore, ...
