Abstract

An ultrasonic reflectivity measurement technique is applied to anisotropy detection within a small area of material. The ultrasonic reflectivity is microscopically measured using an ultrasonic microspectrometer with spherical-planar-pair lenses. The acoustic reflection coefficients of small area on a water-cubic (111) interface were measured for an incident wave at an angle θ to the normal and φ to some direction lying in the (111) surface. The reflection coefficients measured as a function of θ and φ were in good agreement with the theoretical calculation. This reveals that the microscopically measured reflection coefficient is reasonable and can be used as a promising detector of anisotropy in a small area. Furthermore, a mean reflection coefficient is defined for quantitative evaluation of elastic anisotropy in a small area of polycrystalline materials. It has been confirmed that, by performing numerical and experimental examinations with texture-controlled steels, the reflection coefficient measured in polycrystalline materials corresponds to the mean reflection coefficient.
