I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Kevin Williams at the Applied Physics Laboratory, who provided the basis for this work as well as numerous helpful suggestions and explanations of the underlying physics. I would also like to thank Mr. Donald Folds of ARINC Corporation for his method of calculating the pressure fields and his help in verifying results. Most of all, I would like to thank Dr. Ed Belcher for his support and guidance, for his enthusiasm about life, and for his confidence in me. Finally, I would like to thank my parents for all the work they did getting me to this point and for their continual love and support, as well as for proofreading this thesis.
