Pulsed ultrasonic comb filtering effect and its applications in the measurement of sound velocity and thickness of thin plates

Abstract : An analytical and experimental study of the pulsed ultrasonic comb filtering effect is presented in this work intending to provide a fundamental tool for data analysis and phenomenon understanding in pulsed ultrasonics. The basic types of comb filter, feedforward and feedback filters, are numerically simulated and demonstrated. The characteristic features of comb filters, which include the formula for determining the locations of the spectral peaks or notches and the relationship between its temporal characteristics (relative time delay between constituent pulses) and its spectral characteristics (frequency interval between peaks or notches), are theoretically derived. To demonstrate the applicability of the comb filtering effect, it is applied to measuring the sound velocities and thickness of a thin plate sample. It is proven that the comb filtering effect based method not only is capable of accurate measurements, but also has advantages over the conventional time-of-flight based method in thin plate measurements. Furthermore, the principles developed in this study have potential applications in any pulsed ultrasonic cases where the output signal shows comb filter features.
