SM, SB, SD-style Shear Wave Transducers
These model transducers introuce shear waves directly into the test piece without the use of refraction. Generated shear wave propagate perpendicular to the test surface. Ratio of the longitudinal to shear wave component is very low. Direction of the shear wave polarization is normally in line with side connector, other is marked.
- Shear wave velocity measurements.
- Material chracterization.
- Calculation of Young's Modulus of elasticity and shear modulus.
SM-style Direct Shear Wave Transducers
- Knurled stainless steel case with side connector.
- Proprietary wear resistive front plate increases durability.
- SM-style with Microdot connector is ideal for limited access areas or smaller samples.
