BuzzMac Software has announced a maintenance release of version 4.1.1 of its nondestructive tester, Buzz-o-sonic. Buzz-o-sonic converts any standard PC into a dynamic elastic property tester (external microphone recommended). Buzz-o-sonic is an instrument designed to measure the elastic properties of materials from their resonant frequencies following a light mechanical shock (impulse excitation). Cracks and other defects can also be detected in some cases. Buzz-o-sonic can be custom designed for high-temperature and higher frequency analyses, allowing a wider range of samples to be tested. The unit complies with various ASTM standards, such as E1876 and C1259.
