Temperature & Rayleigh Waves


quick question: using my private acoustics library
(not a bad one), I tried to find out how the
velocity of a Rayleigh wave in steel depends on the
temperature of the material. In general, I found
a SQRT-relationship with temperature for waves
propagating in liquids, but no rules for Rayleigh
waves and other waves in solids. Any link or
reference would be of great help. Thanks.

Re: Temperature & Rayleigh Waves
of temperature effect on Rayleigh type waves: make some experimental estimation of temperature effect on longitudinal and shear waves, estimate a temperature effect on Poisson ratio for a given metal, and calculate the Rayleigh equation taking the result of temperature effect on Poisson ratio. Of course, it is necessary to compare these calculations with experimental data. But I would like to notice that this is not purely Rayleigh wave problem. Probably there are other types of surface waves. If you prove them you can call them "tlh waves".

Product Spotlight

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U2 is is used for non-destructive hardness testing of: metals and
alloys by scales of hardness: Rockwell (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV); non-ferrous metals, alloys of iron etc., and using five additional scales for calibration; with tensile strength (Rm) scale determines the tensile strength of carbon steel pearlitic products by automatic recalculation from Brinell (HB) hardness scale.

Cygnus 6+ PRO Multi-Mode Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge

The Cygnus 6+ PRO thickness gauge is the most advance gauge within the Cygnus range with key featu
res including: comprehensive data logging; A-scan and B-scan display; manual gain control; Bluetooth connectivity; and much more. With its unique dual display and three measuring modes (Multiple-Echo, Echo-Echo and Single-Echo), this surface thickness gauge offers maximum versatility for inspections.

Echomac® Small

Available with up to eight channels of electronics to detect and evaluate thickness, flaws and eccen
tricity, this UT tester is housed in a convenient, smaller cabinet. This instrument can be used in conjunction with bubbler or immersion tank systems, or with a test bench or in laboratory applications. The Echomac® Small is available in the FD4, FD6 or FD6A versions.

GEKKO - Portable Phased Array Testing with TFM in Real-Time

The portable phased array testing system GEKKO provides 64 parallel test channels. On creating testi
ng parameters the operator is assisted by the CIVA software. Due to its modular set-up the GEKKO instrument is suitable for operators of all skill levels.
