Generation of Axial Shear Acoustic Resonance by Magnetostrictively Coupled Emat
In this paper, we present a technique to generate the axial shear acoustic resonance in a cylindrical rod and pipe by a magnetostrictively coupled EMAT. The technique is based on the electromagnetic acoustic resonance (EMAR) [1–7]. The EMAR is a combination of the ultrasonic resonance technique and a noncontacting EMAT. The heavily and coherently overlapping echoes at a resonant state improves the signal-to-noise ratio to a large extent and compensates enough for the weak coupling efficiency with the EMATs. The EMAR method was first proposed by Filimonov et al.  and Nikiforenko et al. . In recent years, several researchers have developed this technique for the wide range of the noncontact inspection and materials characterization [3–7].
