Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for ultrasonically evaluating one or more microstructural material properties of a structural specimen are disclosed. An example system comprises an ultrasonic sensor unit including a plurality of ultrasonic transducers that generate ultrasonic backscatter within the specimen, and an evaluation module that performs an autocorrelation function on the ultrasonic backscatter data. An autocorrelation algorithm is configured to execute a single scattering response (SSR) model that computes second order grain statistics of the structural specimen.
