Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity measurement on Vibrating Structures

What is the effect of ultrasonic pulse velocity measurement on
concrete structures when they are vibrating due to the machinary
operating. How does the waves produced by the vibrating system
affect ultrasonic pulse transit time measurement. I would like to
have any relevant details to solve the above problem

Re: Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity measurement on Vibrating Structures
The affect is depending on the acoustic spectrum of the emissions caused by the vibrating machine. If the signal to noise ratio is so good, that the received pulse can be clearly detected, there is no affect to the measurements. Otherwise I would propose to send a Barker-code modulated sequence of sinusoid bursts and use a correlation algorithm for detecting the modulated signal out of the noise. This is a method for increasing very much the measurement reliability.

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).
