Noncontact transportation in water using ultrasonic traveling waves
(Color online) Experimental design. is the water height and is the disc thickness. The transducers were affixed to the vibrating plate by flat head bolts. The receiving transducer is connected to a matching load consisting of a resistor and inductor.
Measured vibration distribution of traveling wave on the vibrating plate for .
Particle velocity as a function of water height. The series of open symbols are the measurement of driving point and the series of closed symbols are that of receiving point . The circles are for electrical power; the squares, electrical power.
(Color online) Phase distribution of traveling waves generated on the vibrating plate. The triangle is the phase in air, and the circle is the phase in water when .
Measurement of the transport velocity. The center axis of the vibrating plate is divided into segments from and the average velocity of the disc at each of these sections is calculated.
The results of a transport experiment in water. The series of open symbols are measurements in water when the height of the water is , and the closed symbol is that in air at .
The relationship between transport velocity and mass per unit area taking into account buoyancy. Open symbols correspond to measurements in water when the water height is , and the series of closed symbols is that in air.
The effect of water height on transport velocity. Here is the height of the water and is the thickness of the acrylic disc.
(Color online) Cavitation bubbles created in the gap between the disc and the vibrating plate. There are several gaps, associated with movement of cavitation bubbles. The cavitation bubbles appear to move from the right side (driving side) to the left side (receiving side) of the photograph. The bright light is from the source set for photographing cavitation bubbles.
