Description

Ultrasonic tomography has been fairly widely applied for imaging of inhomogeneities in isotropic materials, particularly in the medical field, however, little success has been made in its application to industrial materials. This is largely due to the complex nature of ultrasonic wave propagation in these anisotropic materials. The three dimensional characteristics of ultrasonic wave propagation in anisotropic materials have been thoroughly studied for single crystals and also studied recently for different composites [1,2,3]. Understanding these characteristics provides the theoretical background for developing appropriate ultrasonic tomographic imaging methods for industrial materials.
