Abstract:

IT IS CLEAR FROM RECENT PUBLISHED ARTICLES THAT THE GENERATION OF SURFACE WAVES MUST BE CONSIDERED WHEN INTERPRETING MEASURMENTS MADE USING A WIDE-ANGLE, FOCUSED-BEAM, REFLECTION-MODE ACOUSTIC MICROSCOPE. THERE EXISTS MUCH NEW AND USEFUL INFORMATION IN THESE SURFACE WAVES AND UNDERSTANDING THEM IN A MORE QUANTITATIVE MANNER WOULD OPEN NEW AVENUES IN THE NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF SURFACE AND NEAR-SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS. IN PARTICULAR, THESE SURFACE WAVES WILL BE ABLE TO MEASURE THE THICKNESS OF THIN COATINGS, MAP CHANGES IN SURFACE RESIDUAL STRESSES AND DETECT AND QUANTIFY SMALL FATIGUE CRACKS. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES HOW MEASUREMENTS ON SPECIMENS THAT REPRESENT FOUR DISTINCT CLASSES OF MATERIALS PROBLEMS SHOULD LEAD TO A ROTATIONAL PHASE II APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING THE SURFACE WAVE ROLE IN ACOUSTIC MICROSCOPE MEASUREMENTS. THIS PROPOSAL ALSO SEEKS TO DEVELOP A HIGHLY QUANTITATIVE DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPLEX BUT HIGHLY REPRODUCIBLE ACOUSTIC MATERIALS SIGNATURE (AMS) SO THAT A MORE QUANTITATIVE DESCRIPTION OF MATERIALS PROPERTIES CAN BE OBTAINED.
