Using pulsed signals, it is easy to determine the sound velocity c from the sensor distance [x.
At ILL, the team used neutron scattering to measure the structural flexibility of the molecule and determined a force constant of 83 N/m that is consistent with the 'stiffer' sound velocity measurements.
A typical application involves cast metals in which changes in sound velocity can be used to monitor the degree of nodularity.
Variations in the position of the back wall reflection indicate variations in sound velocity in the polymer.

In mapping Earth's interior structure, seismologists identify changes in the sound velocity that can be related to types and physical properties of rocks, and they map major boundaries that are sufficiently abrupt to actually reflect sound energy back to the surface.
This acoustic fingerprint based on the material spectral acoustic properties of impedance, sound velocity and absorption will allow a computer to be programmed to automatically detect illicit materials such as plastic explosives.

8220;PIES has the ability to accurately track the average water column sound velocity over long periods, something which is of significant importance to geophysicists.
By taking the beat frequency of two signals, an output proportional to the flowing velocity but independent of sound velocity is obtained.
Measuring sound velocity with this gauge allows monitoring of changes in material properties, according to the literature.
