Abstract:Experiments confirming the major results of the theoretical study of an active-passive mode of acoustic thermotomography are described. Experimental results are obtained with a setup intended for physical modeling of the processes of correlation reconstruction of the temperature, absorption, and phase velocity of sound in the object under investigation in the presence of an additionally introduced “illuminating” acoustic noise field. A possibility of reconstructing the local values of absorption and inhomogeneity of sound velocity from analyzing the correlation dependences based on difference and summary delays and also with the help of a controlled anisotropic acoustic irradiation is demonstrated.
