Mode conversion of shear waves in immersion testing

Hi All

I read in immersion testing of tubulars we use longitudinal waves to generate shear waves in the test part either by offsetting the probe or angulating it. But when a defect is encountered in the test part , how does the reflected shear waves return to the probe? Is there a mode conversion happens at the test part / water interface to produce longitudial waves , since the shear wave can't pass through liquids?

In Reply to Saju at 11:36 Dec-08-2009 (Opening).

Yes exactly, it goes back the way it came, From water to steel you get a mode conversion to Shear, The from steel to water you get the opposite. Obviously some of the energy is lost at each interface.
