Velocity equation of cylindrical wave

Dear colleags,
Does anyone have any information on the velocity equations of
a cylindrical wave? I'm planning to research a cylyndrical wave using EMAT technique. If you would teach me any information about it, I would appreciate it.
Regards,
Riichi Murayama

Re: Velocity equation of cylindrical wave
The velocity equation can be developed from Navier's equation of motion performing the vector operations in cylindrical coordinates. You can reduce the equation into four uncoupled wave equations that are forms of Bessel's equation. Then you have to apply the appropriate boundary conditions. There are a number of references that address this. I would recommend the book "Wave motion in elastic solids" by Karl F. Graff as a starting point. It is currently published as a paperback by Dover books and is very inexpensive. Amazon.com should have it. You should also be able to find papers that address this type of problem, check the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, and also IEEE transactions on ultrasonics ferroelectrics and frequency control.

Best Regards,
Jim

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

...
nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
