Description

The ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation of structures with material interfaces, involves the generic problem of elastic wave reflection from a planar interface between two homogeneous, linear elastic and isotropic half-spaces. This problem is relevant not only to this discipline but also to other disciplines as diverse as seismology, signal processing in electronic devices, and the design of new structures. Even though this topic has received so much attention in the technical literature for the past one hundred years, there remain unanswered serious questions concerning properties of the reflection coefficients for imperfect bond. Answering these questions will have a dramatic effect in developing a unified experimental technique for the ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation of material interfaces in structures.
