Air/gas transmission

'Gases are generally rather attenuating in the MHz range', Does anybody
have any tables or graphs representing this. After extensive searching
I cannot quantify this statement.

Regards

You can find some tables and graphs in Landold Börnstein: Molecular Acoustics or in older books (written about 1930).
It is difficult to find such data in newer books. If you are interested, I can send you the copies of such tables.

But you must know - if you will test sound propagation in air, it will be difficult to make reliable measurements with frequencies higher then about 2 MHz under
normal atmospheric condistions (without higner pressure). We have made some experiments with such frequencies and the results are not easy to compare.

You will need to find a good method for such measurements.

Sincerely

Re: Air/gas transmission
Try to get Eric Ash's book 'Scanned Image Microscopy' and in is an article by Kumar Wickramasinghe and C. Petts on 'Gas Medium Acoustic Microscopy' with data as a function of pressure for several gases. Has some references that may also be useful. Their data goes to 40 MHz and 200 bars.

Re: Air/gas transmission
You may want to contact the folks at VN Instruments.

These guys have built some very impressive air coupled ultrasonic instrumentation. I've seen some of the experimental data generated using their gear and recall seeing attenuation plots...

Product Spotlight

FMC/TFM

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
