Processors perform the calculations to derive a precise elongation or load measurement, taking into account the effects of stress and temperature variations on the sound velocity to give an accuracy that exceeds that of strain gauges.
When the melt is at its hottest, sound travels slowest, and as the part cools, the sound velocity increases until the part detaches from the cavity, at which point the signal ends.
The measurement of sound velocity enables ductile iron producers to monitor the degree of nodularity in their castings.
Such alteration can dramatically reduce sound velocity in these rocks, making them appear seismically to be part of the ocean crust and thus causing us to overestimate true crustal thickness.
The viscometer consists of three sensors to measure sound velocity through the fluid, longitudinal impedance, and shear impedance.
