Abstract: In general the audible sound has the characteristics of spreading, however the ultrasound is directional. This study used amplitude-modulating technique for an array of 8 ultrasonic transducers to produce directional audible sound beam. In this study sound field distribution for the directional audible sound beam has been investigated. The effect of different weightings varied with different frequency for the transducers on the directivity of the sound beam has also been evaluated. An H (infinity) optimization method was used to calculate the optimal weightings of the transducers for better directivity of the sound beam. Different optimal weightings also added to the carrier and sideband frequencies to control the difference frequency’s beamwidth and sidelobe amplitude. The results showed that the beam width can be controlled and good directivity of the sound beam can be obtained by using the H_8 optimization method.
