Description

The nondestructive evaluation of metal matrix composite precursor wires is being pursued by measurements of the attenuation and velocity of both torsional and longitudinal ultrasonic pulses propagating along the wire axis. The sound waves are generated by non-contacting electromagnetic transducers. Continuous scans of the attenuation and velocity are made along wires of any length by use of a four-transducer arrangement. The attenuation and velocity have been related to physical wire properties which are important for nondestructive evaluation and characterization.
