Abstract
In the past, the acoustic microscope has been used to measure the microelastic properties of many bulk and layered materials. This is carried out by measuring the so-called V(z)-function, which includes the velocity of the surface waves on the specimen. For complicated materials with inherent microstructure like human bones, the interpretation of this measurement technique becomes more difficult due various acoustical effects at elastic discontinuities. A simple technique for testing the reliability of the V(z)- interpretation is given and the examination of the newly defined reliability-factors is presented as a possibility for detecting some unusual properties in microstructured objects.
