Modelling Ultrasound Wave Propagation in Anisotropic and Inhomogeneous Materials.

    Project Details


    In nondestructive testing ultrasound
    waves are an important tool for
    inspection of voids and faults in
    materials. The method is well
    established for isotropic and
    homogeneous materials whereas cases with
    anisotropy and inhomogeneity lead to
    difficulties in the design of inspection
    procedures and interpretations of
    inspection results. The difficulties
    arise from redirection and/or bending
    of the sound wave propagation in an
    unknown manner. In order to investigate
    the influence of anisotropy and inhomogeneity on the sound wave
    propagation we have implemented the
    elastic wave equations using Elasto
    Dynamics Finite Integration Technique
