New equipment for measuring the speed of ultrasound and its application in the estimation of body composition of farm livestock

New equipment for measuring the speed of ultrasound and its application in the estimation of body composition of farm livestock

In vivo measurement of body composition in meat animals: 93-105

The equipment described incorporates 2 ultrasonic transducers held in line, one acting as a transmitter and the other as a receiver. An electronic system gives a measurement of the reciprocal of the speed of ultrasonic pulses passing through the animal being examined.
