Welcome Welcome to the School of Food Science and Nutrition This course addresses the fundamental physical questions needed to understand a range of practical applications of ultrasound. Many of these applications have been developed here. There are no course pre-requisites, apart from an interest in ultrasound as a practical tool for the study of materials. Some of you may feel that I am teaching my grandmother to suck eggs. Please be patient, sucking eggs is not as easy as it looks. Not everyone knows how to do it.
The Beginnings 1826, the first determination of the speed of sound in water
You need the proper tools to understand SoundSound Digital oscilloscope Microphone Ultrasound transduction system
Metaphors Use light as a metaphor Here the suns rays are scattered from the back of the cloud, creating mini- images of the sun. The cloud absorbs the light, with darkness at the front and light at the back. These are called anti- crepuscular rays.
Sound pulse in air
A shear pulse
Surface waves Lamb wave in a plate Diving grebe (wikipedia)
Piston source Region of confusion
The density of phonon modes A phonon is a quantum of sound. Heat is composed of phonons, so all heat is made up of sound waves. But most of them are very high frequency.
Light and ultrasound UltrasoundVisible Light Transducers are phase sensitiveTransducers are phase insensitive Wavelength between m and mWavelength between 0.5 and 1 m Frequency between 0.1 and Hz Frequency between and Hz Coherence between pulsesNo coherence between pulses Responds to elastic, thermophysical, and density properties Responds to dielectric and permeability properties Particle motion parallel to the direction of propagation; no polarization Field displacement perpendicular to direction of propagation; polarization is therefore possible Propagates through optically opaque materials Sample dilution is normally required
The adiabatic approximation Heat flow restricted to a small region of a half wave
Sound velocity measurement
Group and Phase velocity Group velocity Phase velocity is the speed of a given frequency component within the wave This is the velocity of the wave envelope k is called the wave number, λ is the wavelength e.g ocean waveswaves
Velocity and attenuation Attenuation coefficient This is called the wave VECTOR because it comprises two numbers, the first one is sometimes called the real number and the second the imaginary, because it is multiplied by the square root of minus one.
Velocity, phase and attenuation Particle displacement Instantaneous sound pressure Maximum sound pressure
Definitions of attenuation Neper, x = 1 meter. dB, x = 1 meter
Waveforms and group velocity
Impedance Z In words: The impedance is the ratio of the pressure change resulting during the passage of the wave to the particle velocity. This approximates to the product of the density times the speed of sound.
Reflection and transmission Transmission coefficient Reflection coefficient
Coupling and buffering Piezo-ceramic disk transducers
Power levels and propagation parameters Table 2-1 Typical power levels and other propagation parameters for ultrasound propagation in water at 1 MHz and 30 C. at 1 MHz and 30 o C.

Wavefronts and phase
Incoherence The wave front can break up like this due to diffraction and scattering. The transducer will not detect the wave front because the phase variation across the transducer face sums to zero.

The classical model for attenuation Attenuation - radial frequency - density – velocity - shear viscosity Bulk viscosity - ratio of specific heats - thermal conductivity
Underlying physics Conservation of momentum -Newtons second law, force is mass (m) times acceleration ( where v is velocity). Conservation of mass Together conservation of momentum and conservation of mass give rise to the Navier-Stokes equation for fluids. In soft solids an even more complicated relationship exists due to time dependent shear and compressibility. Conservation of energy Second law of thermodynamics
