transmissibiltiy

Hello:

I am trying to monitor transfer of low level signals through 2by4s (wood used for construction). It is well established that the signals travel pretty well along the grain of the length of the 2by4s. However the problem occurs when you arey trying to detected the signal across joints of 2by4.

My question is how can I improve the signal transfer through joints of the 2by4s. Does anybody have an insight?

Thanks
Akshay

Are you trying to propagate low frequency sound waves, or in the ultrasonic frequencies? Intimate contact is one of the prerequisites. Lower frequencies will also propagate better. Adhesive bonding or nailed joints will also propagate better. The nails will act as waveguides to couple sound from one piece of wood to the other. Are you passively listening or actively pulsing?

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
