Velocity of stainless steel 316 and plexiglass

Please,

could anyone provide me with the ultrasound velocity of the following materials:
steel 316
plexiglass
perspex (lucite)

I really cannot find accurate values.

Thank you in advance.

.Here is some info. for you
Lucite Vlong 2680m/sec Vshear 1050m/sec
Plexiglass a)UVA Vlong 2760m/sec Vshear 1090m/sec
b)UVAII Vlong 2730m/sec Vshear 1080m/sec
Hope this helps

The ultrasound velocity in stainless steel is strongly depending on the material (cast, forged, weld), especially on the grain size and the grain orientation, leading to anisotropy.
In general, the velocity is lower than in heat treated, forged, fine grain ferritic carbon steel (clong = 5920 m/s, ctrans =3250 m/s).
So, clong = 5800 m/s might be a suitable average value, but sometimes it can be also down to 5400 m/s.
You have to use suitable control specimens or you have calibrate on the test specimen directly.

Keep it simple. If you have a known thickness of a material, you can determine it's exact velocity. Measure a sample with a micrometer. Set your screen range on your A-scan to twice that thickness. After compensating for probe delay, adjust your velocity so you have one signal at 50% and one at 100%.

Easy, right?

Digital Radiography for Concrete Inspection

In the construction industry (buildings, bridges) there is a need for fast non- destructive means,
...
most commonly to locate targets (Pipes, Re-bars, Conduit, Fittings etc.) within concrete structures prior to drilling, cutting or coring. Measuring reinforcements is also performed for static calculations and to detect corrosion problems and damages. Cracks and voids can also be visualized. The examinations are not only restricted to concrete constructions; they can also be applied to reinforced masonry made of natural stones or bricks.
