Aluminium Surface Wave Velocity

Hi,
Does anybody have a reference that quotes a range of Surface Wave Velocities for different Aluminium Alloys?

I need an approximate figure to be able to calculate the second Critical Angle to generate surface waves in Aluminium Castings, or alternatively, an Incident Angle in Water to gererate these.

Dear Godfrey,
I have a couple of references that I found a few years ago that you can probably use as a guide.

Al 1100-0 (2SO) Velocity of sound (Surface) 2900m/s

Al 2024 T4 (24ST)Velocity of sound (Surface) 2950m/s

These came from the Xactex Corp booklet dated August 1995

Regards

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
