what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?

I read a paper in which it indicates that the temperature coefficient for the speed of sound in solid germanium polycrystalline rod was about -0.000073cm/s and the temperature coefficient for fused silica is about 0.0000723cm/s, I personally think the values are too small?

Could anyone tell me what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?

Thank you!

Re: what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?
This type of question has come up before on this forum. Looking back using the search option we see it in January/March 1999.
Then a value for compression mode in a steel alloy was indicated as about 0.6m/s/C. R.Ginzel has come up with about 0.3m/s for shear modes in some alloys of steel.
In both cases this is about 0.01% of the velocity per degree C. Both are relatively small values but not as small as your quoted value which seems to be smaller by about 6 orders of magnitude.

Hello,

I measured the temperature effect of sound velocity for several metals. My measurement of the temperature coefficient of longitudinal wave for carbon steel (SA106 Gr.B) was -0.67315 m/s/degree C, and -0.48513 m/s/degree C for shear wave.

If you need more information, please let me know.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.

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
