Description

Advances in elastic wave scattering and inversion techniques have shown that advances in transducer technology are needed in order to fully exploit them. This is particularly true in the case of flaw sizing algorithms in which it has been demonstrated that a need exists for transducers with specified bandwidth characteristics. As a part of an effort to develop a composite, multiviewing ultrasonic transducer for flaw characterization, a computational tool has been developed which provides a convenient way to select driver pulse shapes and transducer characteristics which optimize this property. The purpose of this paper is to discuss this computational tool.

A Computational Tool for the Design of Ultrasonic Systems
