 06:58 Mar042004 Calculation of velocity of surface waves Does anybody know the equation for calculating the surface (Rayleigh) wave velocity, given the material properties, modulus of elasticity, poisson's ratio density etc? I have seen rough calculation as 0.92*ShearVelocity, and a more accurate result using a calculator at www.eng.vt.edu/fluids/msc/jscalc/wscac02.htm but do not know the equations hidden inside it. Any ideas, Don

The ratio of the surface wave speed to the shear wave speed (Cr/Ct)= (0.87 + 1.12*nu)/(1+nu) where nu is Poisson's ratio. For nu = 0.29 the ratio is 0.92 as you stated.

Any ideas, Don :  End Original Message Don, There is a formula for the calculation of velocity of surface waves given on pg 22 of "The Krautkramer Booklet" (The blue book)It looks like it is the same formula as the one that Paul Meyer offered but it has not presented as a ratio. If you don't have a "blue" book contact your local Krautkramer Rep. Regards Neil Burleigh P.S. The blue book now has a white cover.
 
  NovaScope 6000The alldigital Novascope 6000 is a portable, ultrahigh precision
thickness gauge for highspeed ... thickness measurement.
Novascope 6000 has unmatched capabilities and unique features
including:
•Superior Resolution with high contrast, highspeed color RF
display
•High pulser voltage
•Realtime video output
•Increased internal/external data storage
•Programmable SetUp features
•Battery & AC Powered > Exertus Dual 120The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192
sources or Selenium 75 source ... s. This projector incorporates design
and
safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight.
The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It
incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal
design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also
allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device,
making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The
Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive
products.
The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source
holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always
assuring the operator that the source has returned to the
safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant. > SONOAIR  aircoupled Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection SystemFor highly attenuating materials, the performance of the system is critical. The ultrasonic sensors, ... the scanning area and the system settings should be flexibly adapted to the test task and the material.
These high expectations are met with the new and modular testing system SONOAIR. With the world’s first aircoupled phasedarray UT inspection system SONOAIR we developed a technology that works with up to 4 transmitter and receiver channels with freely configurable square wave burst transmitters as wells as low noise receiving amplifiers. >
