Studying the interaction of sound with cylindrical shells immersed in water is essential and helpful to improving underwater target detection and classification algorithms. Elastic cylindrical shells often occur as part of double-layered shell and have been widely used in marine and aerospace area. Acoustic waves are easy to be transmitted through the outer shell to the interior especially at low frequencies, thus directly being scattered by the inner shell and the rings in water between double-layered shells. Therefore, the externally ring-stiffened cylindrical shell is investigated in this paper. An experiment was conducted that measured the acoustic scattering. A hybrid 2-D/3-D finite-element modelling technique is employed to numerically calculate the scattering characteristics. Good qualitative agreement is found between numerical calculations and experimental measurement. An approximate analytical expression is given explicitly to identify the Bragg wave trajectories in the frequency-angle spectrum. It also has been shown that the rings not only affect the dynamic response of shell and indirectly influence the exterior scattered field, but also become direct acoustic scatterers in water and increase the target cross section especially at oblique incidence.
