relation between the gain of the pulser-receiver and the echo amplitude

I had made experiment showing the echo amplitude from a cylidrical
hole against the distance of the hole from the transducer
for various gain and the results showed that the echo amplitude
is inversely proportion to the gain but i haven't explanation
for this phenomena. Please if you have explanation
send it to me.

Thank you
Mirham

Dear Mirham,

if you work with very high gain and the signal amplitude of the echo is very large it is possible that the receiver amplifier goes into saturation. In This case the echo seembs to be smaller.
Try reducing gain and look what happens.

Best regards,

Martin.

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
