Two instrumentation systems for measurement of Rayleigh surface wave (RSW) velocity are described. The first system consists of a more conventional methodology using matched RF amplifiers and phase detector/mixer circuits. In the second system, a lock‐in amplifier, operating at high frequency, replaces the matched RF amplifiers and phase detector/mixer circuit, therefore simplifying the instrumentation. Both systems have been used to measure relative Rayleigh wave velocity using a cylindrically focused acoustic transducer consisting of three elements. A high‐precision relative velocity measurement of Rayleigh surface waves is performed by exciting the central element and one of the outer elements with a tone burst signal and measuring the phase difference between the two received signals.
