Abstract

Interaction between a bounded acoustic beam and a fluid wedge over a solid half space is studied. Nondestructive evaluation of partially immersed solids requires such investigations. Solution of this problem is beyond the scope of the currently available analytical methods. FEM based numerical techniques are also not very efficient for solving high-frequency ultrasonic problems. A newly developed semi-analytical technique called Distributed Point Source Method is used to solve this problem. Theoretical predictions are experimentally verified.
