NDE in Multilayers: Theory, Computer Simulation and Experiments

Part of the Acoustical Imaging book series (ACIM, volume 15)


Two recurrence formulae have been deduced to make time-efficient predictions of normal and off-normal responses respectively by computer. The discussion of obvious influences of significant factors on the responses makes it true to direct the practical flaw detection. Finally, after being processed the experimental data obtained prove that the theory and computer simulation are satisfactory to some extent.
