A model for estimating the displacement of a bubble located at a fluid-viscoelastic medium interface in response to acoustic radiation force is presented by extending the model for a spherical object embed- ded in a bulk material. The effects of the stiffness and viscosity of the viscoelastic medium and the amplitude and duration of the excitation force on bubble displacement were investigated using the proposed model. The results show that bubble displacement has a nonlinear rela- tionship with excitation duration and viscosity. The time at which the steady state is reached increases with increasing medium viscosity and decreasing medium stiffness.
