Elastic modulei measurement

Dear All,
it is possible to measure elasticity of a material by UT?
if it is whats the procedure sirs?
regards

It is possible. If you know both sound speeds (longitudinal and transversal waves) and density, you can calculate all elastic parameters (Lame constants) of the material.

There are many possibilities to do it. Ultrasonic refractometry is one of them, spectroscopy methods, combination of acoustical and optical methods (proposed by Bergmann), etc.

We have an application note on the subject that explains the basic procedure. Please see the link below. As Mr. Bicz write, you need to measure longitudinal and shear (transverse) wave velocity, and know the density of the material, and enter those values into the formula in the app note.

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
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
