Buzz-o-sonic is a professional system for measuring the dynamic elastic and damping properties of materials, using the Impulse Excitation Technique IET or Ping Test. A brief explanation of this test is give here.
After several years of development, the Buzz-o-sonic software is not only easy to use but it is very powerful. The familiar, modern tabbed-interface allows several modules and add-ons to be accessed easily. The raw data for every test is stored automatically in a file based on the TDMS file system (Technical Data Management Streaming) from National Instruments. This allows raw and analyzed data to be recalled from a sample database and displayed as waveform and spectrum graphs.
Frequencies can be sent to any Excel® workbook, or the elastic property results can be exported to a new Excel® workbook.
If you want to send information to an Excel® only and not to the built-in Elastic Constants table, then you can hide this table and have Buzz-o-sonic act as a floating pallete.
This palette floats over the Excel workbook and the current resonant frequency can be sent to the active cell.
Bars of uniform cross-section and discs can be tested as per ASTM E1876/C1259. Other non-standard shapes can also be tested.
A wide range of sample sizes can be measured: samples from 10 mm in length up to several meters; and thicknesses down to 0.1 mm
A wide range of testing temperatures
Kits are also available, including:
We will add more modules as demand dictates.
