  • Patent number: 4291396
    Abstract: A discrete transducer array of a plurality of discrete transducer elements, o connected as to achieve a good array directivity pattern with as narrow a beam width as possible for a given side lobe level, or as low a side lobe level as possible for a given beam width, or the most favorable combination of the two. This is to be done with the restriction that there is a discrete array of, say 24, elements that must be shaded discretely, for example by using a series-parallel combination of the elements.
