Description

Work is currently underway to develop and test prototypic ultrasonic instrumentation that will produce unipolar stress pulses in a pulse-echo mode. The instrument will be used to detect and characterize flaws in materials and for the measurement of material properties important in material processing applications. In conjunction with this work, a Gauss-Hermite Beam Model [1,2,3,4] is used to predict the response of various transducer element geometries to maintain the unipolar response over a longer propagation distance.
