Interaction of ultrasound with periodic structures and composite structures

Abstract : The research presented in this thesis contains two parts : the interaction of ultrasound with periodic structures and the interaction of ultrasound with composite materials. The investigation in the interaction of ultrasound with periodic structures is made in two aspects : study of the physical phenomenon of ultrasound diffraction and nondestructive characterization of the coorugated structures using ultrasonic techniques. Chapter II and III represent the investigation of two physical phenomena of ultrasound diffraction, i.e. acoustic Wood anomaly and the so-called sub-harmonic diffraction, respectively. In chapter IV the principle of Bragg diffraction is applied to the nondestructive characterization of the periodicity of periodic structures using air-coupled ultrasonic technique; while a more general geometrical characterization of periodic surface using high frequency ultrasonic C-scan imaging technique is presented in chapter V. In this thesis the research work of the interaction of ultrasound with composite structures focuses on the characterization of impact defects of composite plates. This work contains two parts : the spectral analysis of impact defects and the comparison of different techniques in impact defects characterization. The first part of the work tries to deal with the situation where the received signals for defect characterization are corrupted by the avoidable high-level noise caused by the data acquisition system. While in the second part different testing configurations, different transducers and different data processing methods are compared in order to optimize the defect characterization
