Résumé : 

In this paper we are proposing an experimental study of the effect of low alloy steels carboncontent on the velocity and propagation attenuation coefficient of the ultrasonic waves inthese materials. We have observed simple relations between the velocities and theattenuations according to the carbon content. The same observations can be made for theYoung modulus. These results, in conformity with the theory, show the possibility ofcharacterizing the carbon content by a nondestructive method: ultrasounds. In parallel wehave studied the effect of some heat treatments such as hardening, annealing andquenching on velocities and attenuations. The results obtained show a correlation betweenheat treatments and ultrasonic parameters. This opens ways to a more complete and nondestructive characterization of steels by ultrasonic methods.
