Abstract

Accurate measurements of the ultrasonic shear wave attenuation coefficient are essential for the quantitative nondestructive evaluation of the microstructure of a material. This work provides an experimental technique for measuring this coefficient using a contact method. The first and second pulseecho shear wave signals are measured and are used to calculate the frequency-dependent attenuation coefficient; in this process, the diffraction and the diffraction-affected partial reflection coefficient are corrected to improve the accuracy of measurement. The diffraction coefficient is calculated from measurements of the shear wave velocity, and the partial reflection coefficient is determined experimentally by using another transducer on the opposite side and taking into account for wave diffraction effects. The shear wave attenuation coefficient is determined for samples of different thicknesses, and these results show good agreement over a broadband frequency, thus validating the proposed method.
