Sonelastic® Systems overview

The Sonelastic® Systems are modular and customizable instruments. Any Sonelastic® System is comprised of at least:
  • - A samples support, to apply the vibration boundary conditions.
  • - An impulse device, to excite the sample.
  • - An acoustic sensor, to detect the sample's acoustic response.
  • - A Sonelastic® Software license with computer, to process the acoustic response and perform the calculations.
Parts in detail:
  • The sample support is crucial for providing the ideal mechanical support without restricting the sample vibration during the tests.
  • The impulse device provides the impulse excitation without generating an acoustic response itself.
  • The sensor detects the sample’s acoustic response.
  • The Software digitalizes and processes the acoustic response, and performs the modulus and damping calculations in accordance with the ASTM-E1876 standard.
The Sonelastic® Systems are able to characterize samples and materials with the following characteristics:
  • - Young's modulus from 0.5 to 900 GPa.
  • - Frequency from 20 Hz to 96 kHz.
  • - Dimensions from 2 cm (3/4 inch) to 5.3 m (17.4 feet).
  • - Bar with square or rectangular cross section, cylinder, disc and ring.
