Abstract

In paper, we report our recent results of using the air force ultrasound transducer to study the resonance of rubber tubes. Experiments were carried out on a rubber latex tube. Seven resonant frequencies were measured between 50 Hz and 200 Hz. Theoretical calculation of the resonant frequency on the tube was done with the wave propagation approach. The relative differences of the seven resonant frequencies between the experiment and the theory are less than 6 %. This research shows that the air force ultrasound transducer can be used for tube resonance measurement.
