Stable Solid Material in terms of Velocities over a range of temeprature


Does any one know about a Solid or a mixture of solid material that is stable in terms of Ultrasonic Velocities over a range of Temperatures from Room Temp. to about 70 Deg. C.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Re: Stable Solid Material in terms of Velocities over a range of temeprature
I suppose that by stable you mean that the velocity does not change (much).
Most materials will change, some more than others; however,
steel (and other metals) has a relatvely low dV/dT
on the order of less than a meter per sec per degree C
(typically 0.01%).
e.g. shear wave in steel has a dV/dT of about 0.3m/s/°C

You might want to consider one of the common optical glasses like BK-7 or Zerodur as these are designed to have a very small thermal expansion coefficient near room temperature and this means a small l-wave velocity temperature coefficient.

Re: Stable Solid Material in terms of Velocities over a range of temeprature
Dear Sir ,

You are right, but need to have something with the velocities less than the shear velocity in Steel to have the shear mode generated inside steel, but staying stable inside the wedge (in terms of wedge velocity) even with the variation in temperature of the Wedge.

Can you have an idea.




    
 
 

Product Spotlight

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
