2003 (English)In: Proceedings, 2003 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium: October 5 - 8, 2003, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii ; an international symposium / / [ed] Donald E. Yuhas, Piscataway, NJ: IEEE Communications Society, 2003, 254-257 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we present a model-based group velocity estimator, that can be used to measure speed of sound in ultrasonic pulse-echo systems as a function of ultrasound frequency. The estimation of group velocities involves numerical differentiation of the phase difference. In the presence of noise, this becomes numerically unstable. The model-based approach presented herein, shows better tolerance to experimental noise. The performance of the estimator is evaluated with simulations as function of pulse bandwidth and SNR. Finally, the estimator applied to real data and compared with other methods for measuring speed of sound in Ethane and Oxygen.
