Short summary
The paper shows how the precise knowledge of the sound field of an ultrasonic annular array can contribute to the development of novel measurement techniques. It demonstrates the locally resolved measurement of sound velocity in fluids, simultaneous measurement of thickness, sound velocity of layers and curvature. To demonstrate the methods, the principles as well as results of simulations and measurements are discussed.
