Significance of appearing an echo between first and second back walls.


Dear all

They are shear wave reflections

Mode conversion. Shear wave velocity ~1/2 the longitudinal wave velocity.

Prasoon, Andrew's reply is more than likely the explanation. The formation of the shear mode results due to the diffraction effect at the ends of the transducer where the beam is no longer a plane wavefront. You can see how they form in the article and associated video at http://www.ndt.net/article/ndtnet/2013/9_Ginzel.pdf
