In this paper, beamforming and normal modes method are combined to calculate the underwater acoustical field. Firstly, beamforming technology is used to form directional sources by controlling the phase and relative amplitude. Secondly, considering the ocean speed, surface and bottom boundary, the point source sound field is calculated based on the normal modes model. Then underwater acoustical field with directional sources is achieved by adding all point source field. Taken the 11 elements vertical linear array as an example, the special directional source is formed by chebyshev amplitude weighting, and then underwater acoustical field is calculated in the Munk profile of different grazing angles. The results indicate that beam grazing angle is very essential to its sound field, and changing the grazing angle can enhance the sound intensity of the shadow zone correspondingly.
