Abstract

The propagation of ultrasonic waves through turbulent water flow has been Investigated experimentally. While passing the turbulent region the sound waves are modulated to some extent. The degree of modulation and the frequency spectra of the modulation are closely related to the properties of the flow. It seems to be possible to use this method for turbulence measurements in liquids, whereby the absence of a probe in the flow region and a possibility to differentiate between velocity and density fluctuations would be special advantages. A disadvantage can be the fact that Information is collected on the whole sound path.
