Wave propagation
Longitudinal waves propagate in all kind of materials.
Transverse waves only propagate in solid bodies.
Due to the different type of oscillation, transverse waves
travel at lower speeds.
Sound velocity mainly depends on the density and Emodulus of the material.

Reflection and Transmission
As soon as a sound wave comes to a change in material
characteristics ,e.g. the surface of a workpiece, or an internal inclusion,
wave propagation will change too:

Reception of ultrasonic waves
A sound wave hitting a piezoelectric crystal, induces crystal
vibration which then causes electrical voltages at the crystal
surfaces.
