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.

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?
