    Abstract

    The current methods of ultrasonic modulus measurement make, implicitly or explicitly, the following key assumption: The front-surface and the back-surface reflections of an incident pulse are separable in the time-domain, i.e., the plate is several wavelengths thick. By combining standard ultrasonic methods with the theory of Fourier Transforms, a new technique has been developed which removes the preceding restriction. The theoretical and the experimental procedures are described in detail. The efficacy of the method is demonstrated for three disparate materials: (1) non-attenuative, non-dispersive; (2) weakly attenuative, non-dispersive; and (3) highly attenuative, highly dispersive.

    Keywords:

    thin specimens, sub-wavelength, sub-millimeter, ultrasonic, dispersion, attenuation, Fourier transform, frequency dependence, dynamic versus static modulus
