This accessory to equipment set for longitudinal and transverse waves (U10020) is used to examine the propagation of transverse waves in metals and ascertain the elastic constants of aluminum, such as its shear modulus, modulus of elasticity and Poisson ratio. The test block's very high reflectivity with high reflection coefficient in water provides sizeable signal amplitudes for measurements of attenuation in liquids (e.g. water, cooking oil or glycerine).
