Ultrasound mode conversion

  1. Dec 28, 2016 #1
    when a longitudinal wave beam hits the interface at an oblique angle, we can have both refracted longitudinal and transverse waves, so as with reflected.that's because some of longitudinal waves have converted to transverse waves.but why is that? what is the origin?
    p/s: sorry for bad English :(
