Ultrasonic energy distribution and calculation

I am writing this inquiry from Fremont California where I work
for Seagate Technology. I would like to calculate/model the
various components of ultrasonic energy distribution
inside a fluid ( radiation pressure, cavitation, micro-streaming)
while trying to clean a surface?
Can the data obtained from hydrophone measurements be de-coupled
to extract some of the components?
Thanks in advance for your response.

Dear Amber,
I am working on a quite equal project. We want to
produce ultrasonic streaming in liquid metals. In
a first step we build up a high intenstiy focusing
ultrasound source for streaming in water. It should
also be used for a cleaning process. The next step is
to produce cavitation in liquid metals.
The pressure distribution can be calculated by FEM.
We are using CAPA, a FEM package wich also deals with
nonlinear acoustics, like shock formation wich is
important if you want to look at cavitation.
The progam is described on the following homepage.

I am very interested in your problem. May be you
could provide more detailed information for further
discussion since our projects sound very simular to
mine.

yours
Johann Hoffelner

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
