Ultrasonic Measurement Models

  • Lester W. SchmerrJr.


In previous chapters we developed expressions to describe separately generation, propagation, transmission, diffraction, attenuation, scattering, and reception processes in an ultrasonic experiment. In this chapter we combine these elements into a single model of the entire measurement process.
