Immersion Ultrasonic Testing Setup

Application ID: 78801

This tutorial showcases the principles of the immersion ultrasonic testing technique. A search unit placed in a water tank sends an ultrasonic pulse signal that scatters off a solid object. Part of the signal is reflected back to the search unit by the object and possible flaws in it. By analyzing the reflected signal the position of the object and the flaws can be determined.

The model uses the Pressure Acoustics, Time Explicit and the Elastic Waves, Time Explicit physics interfaces. The acoustic-structure interaction is established by using the Pair Acoustic-Structure Boundary, Time Explicit multiphysics coupling. The model takes advantage of a geometry assembly and a nonconforming mesh.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
