Causal determination of acoustic group velocity and frequency derivative of attenuation with finite-bandwidth Kramers-Kronig relations

Abstract

Kramers-Kronig (K-K) analyses of experimental data are complicated by the extrapolation problem, that is, how the unexamined spectral bands impact K-K calculations. Without extrapolation the causal linkages of resonant-type data are established using expressions derived from the acoustic K-K relations to predict group velocity and slope-of-attenuation (frequency derivative of attenuation). These predictions provide a stricter test of causal consistency than the determination of the phase velocity and attenuation coefficient due to their shape-invariance with respect to subtraction constants.
