Does anyone know of a mathematical solution to the beam intensity at the focal point of an ultrasonic transducer for pulsed operation. The equation in Ultrasonic testing of materials by Krautkramer does not seem to work.

05:21 Sep-27-2003 Re: Focused ultrasonic transducers John: I am not sure if the equation is the same but in the Panametrics catalogue (found on their website that is linked to from ndt.net) there is a section on increased sensitivity by focusing. They indicate the gain as a function of focal length over near field length then plot the relative increase in signal amplitude for a point target (on axis). They also note on the plot that the amplitude from a small defect cannot exceed the amplitude from a flat plate. This suggests that the amplitude gain recorded will be a function of the target size. If it is a quantitative measure you are trying to calculate (e.g. units of pressure or energy) I differ to others for the equations. Ed

The Basque Research centre IK4-IDEKO has developed a state-of-the-art ultrasonic inspection system f
or the train wheel. This system secures a sound condition of train wheels and is thus a significant contribution to rail transport safety. The device was delivered to CAF recently and its use allows the manufacturer to become an approved supplier of rolling stock in Italy, as it meets the demanding homologation standards of this country. \\\\r\\\\n
The Cygnus 6+ PRO thickness gauge is the most advance gauge within
the Cygnus range with key featu
res including: comprehensive data
logging; A-scan and B-scan display; manual gain control; Bluetooth
connectivity; and much more. With its unique dual display and three
measuring modes (Multiple-Echo, Echo-Echo and Single-Echo), this
surface thickness gauge offers maximum versatility for inspections.
