Quantitative ultrasound based Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) is one of the leading test procedures used in testing of finished products in manufacturing industry. It can detect surface as well as subsurface flaws accurately. It is also employed in medical diagnostic for various purposes. The main objective of this paper is to simulate 28 element ultrasound transducer pair for through transmission testing procedure. The simulation is done using k-Wave toolbox (open source toolbox) and MATLAB. The simulation results show that the received signal strength and resolution is far more improved over single and dual element transducer probes available in the market. The simulation of wave propagation through three layered aluminum material is also shown in the results. Based on results, it can be concluded that 28 element transducer pair are the optimum solution for NDE evaluation challenges with reference to cost, size, and design complexity.
