Coupling Film Thickness Effect on Absolute Ultrasonic Velocity Measurement in Solids
It is now well known that an accurate knowledge of the ultrasonic velocity in solids is very useful. Indeed, in addition to yielding the elastic moduli of solids, it has been observed that this technique could well be used to study the various physical phenomena which profoundly influence the modulus of elasticity.
