Analytical and Numerical Predictions of Short Pulsed Elastic Waves on a Half-Space
The numerical modeling of ultrasonic wave propagation in elastic solids is particularly attractive for NDT applications because of the relative ease with which the boundaries of realistic defect shapes and testing geometries can be handled. A two-dimensional explicit finite element code  has been developed for this purpose.
