A semi-analytical model for predicting multiple propagating axially symmetric modes in cylindrical waveguides (1)
Publication Name: Ultrasonics
A semi-analytical model for multiple mode axially symmetric wave propagation in finite solid cylindrical waveguides is presented. The model is designed as a tool for predicting and interpreting experimental signals. The model is based on a common experimental configuration and considers the excitation, propagation and reception of the ultrasonic signal in the waveguide. The PochhammerChree solution for an infinite cylinder is the basis for the model. Extensions are made to enable comparison to experimental results. Comparisons with experiment are performed in the time, frequency and joint-time frequency domain for both narrow band and broad band excitation of the piezo-electric transducer.
