sound attenuation

we cast a cylindrical shaped steel piece.inner redius is 20 ,outer redius is 60 cm. and height is 70 cm.when ý test the piece ultrasonically , ý realize a band in the middle zone of the test piece, where the sound attenuation occurs.why?

One likely explanation would be a significant change in grain structure or a concentration of microporosity in that region. Strictly speaking, both of these conditions affect ultrasonic scattering rather than attenuation, but I imagine that what you are seeing is a loss of backwall signal, and that could definitely be due to coarser grain or microporosity. You should try testing the part at a lower frequency.
