Transient acoustic radiation from a closed axisymmetric three-dimensional object is modeled using the time domain boundary element method. The widely reported instability problems are overcome by reformulating the integral equation to obtain a Burton and Miller type equation in the time domain. The stability of such an approach is mathematically justified and supported by subsequent numerical results. The hyper singular integrals which arise are evaluated using a method valid for any surface discretization. Numerical results for the radiation of a spherical wave are presented and compared with an exact solution. The accuracy and stability of the results are verified for several geometrically different radiating objects.
