Abstract

Behavior of ultrasonic beams generated from broad-band transducers was investigated by simulation on a digital computer. The computer model used Huygen's principle to determine axial and lateral pressure profiles. In this paper, a methodology to determine the beam behavior (pressure variations in the ultrasonic field) and comparison with classical results are presented with illustrative applications of this computer model to three practical problems: pressure variations due to pulse shape, transducer surface vibrational pattern, and angle-beam transducers. A comparison between experimental and calculated pressure values along the axis of wave propagation for 45 degree angle-beam transducers is also presented.
