  author={Peter Holstein and Manuela Barth and Christian Probst and Sonotec Ultraschallsensorik},
Air tightness testing has importance in industrial environments where in compressed air systems leaks account for a high percentage of energy loss. These losses can effectively be reduced by locating and repairing of leaks. Furthermore, tightness is a criterion for the quality of different kinds of seals and joints. For leak detection and tightness testing acoustic methods (passive and active) can be applied. Variations of the technology enable access to different problems. The methods for leak…

Second, the sound pressure level generated by a compressed air leak varies with the measurement angle (Wolstencroft and Neale, 2008). Additionally, noisy environments are known to degrade the


Listening to ultrasound is a useful feature in special measurement equipment. High frequency can be converted by means of different technologies in order to determine or to distinguish bats or other


Compressors are important components in many industries. Proper monitoring technologies are very important and demanding. Failure of compressors could be very costly. The quality of compressor



Modeling nonlinear ultrasound propagation in heterogeneous media with power law absorption using a k-space pseudospectral method.

The k-space pseudospectral method is used to reduce the number of grid points required per wavelength for accurate simulations of nonlinear ultrasound propagation through tissue realistic media, and increases the accuracy of the gradient calculation and relaxes the requirement for dense computational grids compared to conventional finite difference methods.

k-Wave: MATLAB toolbox for the simulation and reconstruction of photoacoustic wave fields.

By comparison with one-step, FFT-based reconstruction, time reversal is shown to be sufficiently general that it can also be used for finite-sized planar measurement surfaces and the optimization of computational speed is demonstrated through parallel execution using a graphics processing unit.
