Ultrasonic Longitudinal and Transverse Wave Modes

I am curious to know how exactly longitudinal ultrasonic waves mode convert into transverse waves. I understand the fact that transverse waves have about half the velocity of longitudinal waves because of the extra distance traveled in the transverse wave. But, what happens to the material’s molecules, grain structure, or atoms, when a longitudinal wave reflects off of a boundary and is then transformed into a transverse wave? Any information about this subject would help greatly. Thank You

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?
