The Near-Zone Acoustic Field of Single-Phase Transmitters upon Electromagnetic-Acoustic Conversion in Metals

  • V. A. Komarov
Acoustic Methods


An acoustic field produced in metals by single-phase (infinitely long) inductive transmitters is considered. It is shown that a stable radiation field from single-phase transducers is formed at substantially shorter distances from the interface of media than in the case of two-phase transducers. This distance can be adjusted by varying the width of the transducer.
