Numerous experiments have already been performed which show qualitatively that ultrasonic polar scans are a promising technique to characterize the stiffness properties of fiber reinforced composites [refs 1-5]. Whereas classical C-scans use normal incident sound on a large number of subsequent spots, a polar scan uses oblique incident sound under each possible angle on one single spot, to obtain information about the material under investigation. Extraction of the stiffness tensor from such… CONTINUE READING
