the sound path in solid with temperature graident

According to Snell's law, the sound wave will refract if it incidents (not perpendicularly) onto a interface of different material with different sound velocity. And normally the sound velocity of the solid is dependent on the temperature. so, the sound path is not a line but a curve when the ultrasonic wave enter (not perpendicularly) into the solid with temperature gradient. is this conclusion right? where can I find the detailed data about sound velocity dependent on temperature for metals, such as aluminum and steel?

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
