06:21 Mar-12-2003 Re: Wave spreading at various frequencies in piezo strips You are correct in assuming this is a diffraction effect. go to this website for a better explantion;
: I am currently involved in a project investigating simple transducer arrays, where the transducers are merely strips of peizo electric material. . : At lower frequencies the longditudinal waves spread out more increasing the range of the array, at higher frequencys the scan is more focused. . : My question is why? Is it due to simple diffraction from the surface of the strip? .
Phased array ultrasound is now a commonly accepted inspection technology. Now there is excitement ar
ound new techniques in Phased Array: Full Matrix Capture (FMC) & Total Focusing Method (TFM). Our webinar on December 5 & 6 will illustrate how these techniques, implemented on a TOPAZ64 instrument, can improve the results of existing inspections. Register today.
