Paper Abstract

A tone burst of ultrasonic waves in air is scattered by small pads of cotton of different composition. Spectrum analysis of the transmitted ultrasonic tone burst is found to produce a spectrum which can be related to the physical properties of the scatterer. Use of well-characterized cotton samples has made possible a correlation with data from other studies made with the same samples. The role of pattern recognition in a future grading system is described.
