Grandt 3 13 Ultrasonic Attenuation (Section 12.4) Sound waves lose energy as they propagate through system Beam spreading over larger area intensity ~ (1/distance) 2 loss ~ (distance) 2 Absorption Mechanical energy heat loss More significant loss for shear waves Loss increases with frequency Scattering – materials not homogeneous Minimal if grain boundaries < λ /100 Significant if gb > λ/10 λ/10 loss ~ (g.b.) 3 Loss could indicate unacceptable grain size 14 Ultrasonic Attenuation (cont)
