Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
A complete ultrasonic measurement model for surface and plate wave inspections is obtained, where all the electrical, electromechanical, and acoustic∕elastic elements are explicitly described. Reciprocity principles are used to describe the acoustic∕elastic elements specifically in terms of an integral of the incident and scattered wave fields over the surface of the flaw. As with the case of bulk waves, if one assumes the incident surface waves or plate waves are locally planar at the flaw surface, the overall measurement model reduces to a very modular form where the far‐field scattering amplitude of the flaw appears explicitly.
