An examination system to be evaluated comprises an ultrasonic pulse-echo instrument, search unit, interconnecting cables, and couplant; for immersion examination systems suitable ﬁxturing is required. When checking an entire system to be used for a given examination, test conditions are selected that are consistent. A new type of ultrasonic pulse‐echo method that makes use of interaural localization is described in this Letter. The basic idea of this method is to receive pulse echoes reflected from an object with two receiving transducers and to hear the echo signals stereophonically after they are converted to audible frequencies. The principles of the system and some results of preliminary experiments.
In the pulse-echo response, the pulser may send the noise signals to the receiver. Therefore, the function of the expander is to suppress the noise signals from the pulser [ 24 ]. Since NF is a parameter to measure how much the noise of the devices deteriorate the performances of the system [ 25 ], the NF of the expanders needs to be measured. ultrasound system was pursued. A pulse echo system consists of a transducer assembled with small individual elements that can each be pulsed separately. The purpose of pulsing each element separately is to create a phased-array of signals. The phased-array (signals with different phases ranging from 10ns to 20us) will be sent through the.

We report an evolution of an all-digital ultrasonic pulse technique for measurements of elastic constants of solids. An unambiguous analytical procedure is described for determining the correct time delay of echoes without any need for actual echo overlap. We also provide a simple procedure for making corrections for transducer-bond-induced phase shifts.

Pulse echo. A pulse echo is an A-scan presentation broadly used for thickness measurement and sizing the defect in an ultrasonic inspection involving identifying the indication echoes when the signal is reflected from a discontinuity in a test material structure.

The technique is based on the comparison of echo. Abstract: A novel pulse compression technique is developed that improves the axial resolution of an ultrasonic imaging system and provides a boost in the echo signal-to-noise ratio (eSNR).
The new technique, called the resolution enhancement compression (REC) technique, was validated with simulations and experimental measurements. The echo signal polluted by noise needs to be filtered in the ultrasound imaging system.
However, the conventional fixed bandpass filter doesn't work effectively, because the bandwidth and center frequency of the ultrasound echo signal is time-varying. The Adaptive filter with NLMS then is applied to resolve this problem. A method to evaluate its performance is also developed.

To remove the noise in the echo signals of ultrasonic pulse-echo testing, this paper puts forward a denoising algorithm based on the GST and SVD, which can eliminate the noise in both time- and frequency- domains.
The 2D time-frequency matrix, obtained through the GST of ultrasonic echo signals, was subjected to the SVD. The detection of flaw echoes in backscattered signals in ultrasonic nondestructive testing can be challenging due to the existence of backscattering noise and electronic noise.
In this article, an empirical mode decomposition (EMD) methodology is proposed for flaw echo enhancement. The backscattered signal was first decomposed into several intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) using EMD or ensemble. ultrasonic signal signature in NDT of materials using the pulse echo test [21—31].

A typical pulse echo signal consists of a feed-through signal, a primary echo at time t 1 and a sequence of secondary echoes of decreasing magnitude at further times t 2, t 3, t 4 etc. The feed through signal occurs when there is a direct path between the elements which transmit and receive the signal which may often be physically the same.

Commercial ultrasonic pulse-echo testers available in the market show poor automation features and they are operator dependent because probe positioning is typically performed by an operator visually inspecting the echo signal displayed on the oscilloscope, and manually translating and orienting the probe through linear guides.
