Paper Abstract

The treatment of a bolt embedded in soil is simplified to the model of a rod embedded in an infinite medium. The dispersion curves of the model are calculated. Propagation characteristics of longitudinal modes in a free bolt and a bolt embedded in soil are studied. The longitudinal mode L(0,1) in a bolt embedded in soil in the frequency range from 40kHz to 90kHz the displacement of the profile is simple, which makes it easy to be excited. Its attenuation is the smallest in all modes, and its energy velocity is the fastest. This indicates that the longitudinal mode L(0,1) can be used for the inspection of a bolt embedded in soil. At the same time, the experiments on a 2 m long bolt embedded in soil, inspected by using ultrasonic guided wave have been carried out. The results of the experiment show, that the longitudinal mode L(0,1) in the frequency range from 40kHz to 90kHz is suitable for the inspection of a bolt embedded in soil.
