Help! How to design air ultrasonic transducer

Dear colleagues
Our project need to design air ultrasonic transducer( 50KHz, wide bandwidth). But I do not have experience of it. So need your help.
Do you know any book introduce the principle of making transducer and step by step teaching how to make a PZT transducer?
Or any material about it that can be download from web-site?

Thanks
Wang Yi

Dear Mr. Wang Yi,
at our page http://www.ibmt.fhg.de/ibmt3sensorfertigungsheets_e.html you will get some information about our range of high-bandwidth airborne ultrasonic transducers. If you will build up airborne transducers based on PZT you will receive either an high-sensitive smallband transducers (when the piezoceramic is used in banding mode) or a very insensitive broadband transducers with high electric impedance (when the piezoceramic is used in thickness mode and it is highly damped). Only whith specialized designs you can reach a sensitive AND broadband PZT-transducer.
Alternative technologies are using piezocomposite materials or using the electrostatic principle (POLAROID-transducer).
Our broadband PZT transducers are based on several special patents, thus we could offer you a project for matching this technology to the desired frequency of 50 kHz (which bandwidth do you need?).
For basic informations on ultrasonic transducer design see the standard book "Material Testing by Ultrasound" of Krautkrämer (Krautkramer).

Best regards,

Dipl.-Ing. Martin Heinz.

...
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

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
