I've been working at a problem for a while. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it. I'm working on refraction of an ultrasound beam as it crosses a planar interface between a Rexolite wedge and a steel sample block. I've got it mostly worked out, but am struggling with a (the) key parameter: How to define the (3D) vector after refraction across the plane. I can get the angle with relation to the plane-normal by Snell's Law, and I'm assuming the vector will be in the plane defined by the normal and the incident wave, and the line will contain the point at which it intersects the plane. This seems like it should be easy given the information I've already calculated, but I just can't seem to get the keystone in the top of the arch. 20140227-BeamPathWork-CloseUp.pdf
Can anyone help?
