Fourier transform techniques are applied to the interpretation of ultrasonic frequency analysis, yielding results in basic agreement with previous interference models, but capable of explaining anomalies unaccounted for by such models. In addition, the present approach indicates that both attenuation and phase-shift measurements may be obtained directly from the displayed spectrum, either separately or simultaneously.
