Abstract

Numerous ultrasonic applications, such as high-frequency/low frequency drilling, require or can benefit from the inclusion of some torsional vibration behaviour within a primarily longitudinal pattern. Producing longitudinal-torsional (LT) vibration in a Langevin transducer using the mode degeneration method tends to give more robust results than the competing mode-coupling approach, and this work is concerned with optimizing the relative strengths of the longitudinal and torsional responses within the context of a half-wavelength Langevin transducer. Using numerical and experimental techniques, the output of such a system is predicted across a range of geometries and compared to experimental results obtained through laser vibrometry.
