N2 - Radiation of sound from a spherical source, vibrating with an arbitrary, axisymmetric, time-harmonic surface velocity, while positioned within an acoustic quarterspace is analyzed in an exact manner. The formulation utilizes the appropriate wave field expansions along with the translational addition theorem for spherical wave functions in combination with the classical method of images to develop a closed-form solution in form of infinite series. The analytical results are illustrated with numerical examples in which the spherical source, vibrating in the pulsating (n = 0) and translational oscillating (n = 1) modes, is positioned near the rigid boundary of a water-filled quarterspace. Subsequently, the basic acoustic field quantities such as the modal acoustic radiation impedance load and the radiation intensity distribution are evaluated for representative values of the parameters characterizing the system.
