When an ultrasonic wave hits a solid state material in a certain angle, shear waves will be generated with increasing angle. Shear waves have a sound velocity differing to that of longitudinal waves. With this experimental equipment the transition from longitudinal to shear waves can be measured angle-dependently.
Basics of ultrasounds which can not been demonstrated with industrial equipment are shown in a very didactical manner.
