By contrast, the manufacturer notes, non-contact or guided wave radar devices or weight and cable style sensors measure only a single distance in pie-shaped silo segments.
Section 2 presents the guided wave fundamentals, such as characteristic equations and dispersion curves for the free plate and the plate with one side in water.
Guided wave inspection has been considered recently as an effective inspection technique for such large platelike structures.
In addition to these methods, an alternative NDT technique for rock bolt grout quality inspection can be developed based on the ultrasonic guided wave theory.
Two techniques have already been proposed, first arriving signal (FAS) [17, 20-23] and guided wave [19, 24-27].
In this approach, the guided wave is detected by monitoring the displacement at the TSV surface subsequent to laser excitation.
SICK says LFP's guided wave radar technology means its measuring performance is unaffected by the density or conductivity of the fluid, making it consistently accurate even for deposit-forming and foaming liquids.
