Title: Microstructure-based model of nonlinear ultrasonic response in materials with distributed defects

Abstract

Nonlinear ultrasonic technique is one of promising NDE methods for monitoring defect evolution in irradiated nuclear materials. In this work, we have studied the effect of distributed defects on nonlinear ultrasonic response, in particular, the nonlinear parameter ß from the 2nd harmonic wave. A three-dimensional microstructure-based model has been developed for investigating the dynamic interaction between distributed defects and a propagating longitudinal sound wave. Both linear and nonlinear materials are considered. It is known that the 2nd harmonic wave is generated when a monochromatic wave propagates in a nonlinear elastic material. The results show that second phase particles with elastic heterogeneity and lattice mismatch have strong impact on the nonlinear parameter ß. Lattice mismatches have more effect on the nonlinear parameter no matter they are expansion or contraction. The developed model enables one to explore the contributions of different types of defects to the nonlinear ultrasonic signals and shed light on the development of nonlinear ultrasound nondestructive detection of material defects in nuclear reactors.
