    Abstract

    This paper describes the design and fabrication of a reduced element count annular array for far field NDT imaging applications, built with a random fiber piezoelectric composite microstructure. An annular array design is considered, spatially it offers axi-symmetric layout while reducing number of array elements, which could potentially result in a significant reduction in the cost and complexity of building an ultrasonic volumetric imaging system. Modelling and preliminary experimental results are presented to evaluate the feasibility of this approach.
