How to calculate the penetrating power of ultrasonic waves both longitudinal and share waves

I am rising a question that, how can we calculate the penetrating power of the ultrasonic waves going the V1 block, I has seen a theory regarding to this but there was no mathematical expression to this,

The thing what I read was, we have to fix the probe on the perspex in the V1 block and make it to Max. Amplitude and take the amplitude value next in the same position we have to take the total number of echos and the amplitude of the last echo.

So, my doubt is by this how we can Caliculate the penetrating power.

Waiting for the answer

My question is why you want to calculate penetration power?
Do you intend to know maximum effective range of inspection? Usually what is important for an inspector is how far UT wave can penetrate and detect a reflector with a specific size and orientation with respect to beam angle, not penetration power.

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.

Ultrasonic Testing Immersion Tanks with Unmatched Scanning Features

TecScan’s non-destructive testing Ultrasonic Immersion Tanks & scanners are designed for high pe
rformance and demanding NDT testing applications. Our Scan3D™ line of High Precision Immersion Tanks are specifically designed for automated ultrasonic testing of complex composites parts used in aerospace and industrial applications.


Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
