Sound velocity measurements

Accuracy of sound velocity measurements( <=0.1% ?)

During the revision of the ISO 2400 Standard for the IIW block Nr. 1 we had to discuss
the problem of the accuracy at sound velocity measurements achievable with standard laboratory equipments.
This debate showed us that the difficulties with this problem tend to be underestimated. An absolute accuracy
of 0.1 % can be realized only with a certain amount care during the measurements.
As a reference I would like to indicate a contribution presented at the ASTM New Methods Seminar

Lyft™: Pulsed Eddy Current Reinvented

PEC Reinvented—CUI Programs Redefined Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is possibly the greatest u
...
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?
