different volecity in steel

Hello,

Do anybody know why there are different velocities of ultrasonic waves when applying the probe in different directions of the sample?

Thanks

Kamchiu

Hello,

Supposing you are talking about the same wave mode, e.g. transverse waves, velocity will depend on direction, if the elastic constants of the material - here steel - are different in different directions, this is called anisotropy.

Ultrasonic waves are elastic waves. So their velocity depends on the elastic constants of the material and the density. If these parameters change for different directions, e.g. parallel and perpendicular to rolling direction of a steel plate, then the velocities will change with direction or angle of incidence (acoustic anisotropy).
Anisotropic steels will even show birefringence, i.e. two reflected echos caused by a single transmitted pulse.
Only with isotropic steels the velocities are independent of direction.

Kind regards

Udo Schlengermann

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
