This research presents a novel characterization technique for fibrous ensembles, based on noncontact ultrasonic waves. The instrumental setup comprises a pair of ultrasonic transducers operating at 500 KHz, a signal generator and data acquisition systems. Ultrasound signals transmitted through fibrous materials were analyzed using feature extraction system to determine their low stress mechanical properties and thermal properties. Validation of the system was carried out using a custom-developed Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine.
