FIG. 4 is a characteristic diagram showing the change of the frequency-deflection angle in the case of the transducer array according to the present invention. DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION The present invention provides an ultrasonic radiation apparatus capable of changing the pointing direction of an ultrasonic beam in a simple manner as compared with the conventional apparatus. FIG. 1 shows a conventional device, in which S is a high frequency power supply for driving a magnetostrictive vibrator, P1P2... Pn is a phase of high frequency current output of the high frequency power supply S sequentially 0, ±. ······· Phase adjusters AI, A2 · An for phase shift by ± (n1) are magnetostrictive vibrators of the same structure, respectively, spaced apart from each other in the z-z 'axis direction They are arranged to constitute one transducer as a whole. In the above apparatus, the phase adjuster Pi, B2... Pn causes each of the transducers AI, A2... An to have a phase with a fixed difference of ejWLej (wt−ψ == ej (wt− (n−1) cp). High frequency current is sequentially supplied to generate an ultrasonic wave, and if it is expressed as an angle θ measured from the X axis direction perpendicular to the Z axis as in the case of the directional antenna, The acoustic beam deflection angle θ increases as the value of the phase 増 加 increases. [111111] In the abovementioned device, since a phase adjuster is required for each vibrator, there is a drawback that the device is complicated and enlarged. The present invention eliminates these disadvantages 03-05-2019 1 and is illustrated by the following examples. In FIG. 2, S1 denotes a variable frequency power source P for driving a magnetostrictive vibrator, variable frequency knob, AI. Ａ２． A3... An are identical to each other in the z-z ′ axis direction and spaced apart from each other in the X axis direction with an interval of an integral multiple of the distance λ1. It is a magnetostrictive vibrator of structure, and constitutes one transducer as a whole. B1 ° B2, B3 · · · · · · Bn has open ends in the same plane, a shielding box having the above vibrator closed end. In the above apparatus, if it is assumed that the variable frequency power source, the frequency f1 of S1 or (V is the ultrasonic propagation velocity in water of about 1'500 rn / s), the magnetostrictive vibrator AI excited by high frequency current, A2. A3 ... An ultrasonic wave transmitted from An is shielded box B1. Ｂ２． Since the open end face of B3... Bn is all in phase, the phase of the supplied current in the apparatus of FIG. 1 is the same as in the case of 00, and the incident ultrasonic beam deflection angle θ is O It is. If the frequency f of the variable frequency power source S1 is fl <f this time, the ultrasonic wave emitted from the transducer of A2 is Δλ (Δ) with respect to the ultrasonic wave at which A1 is also emitted at the open end face of the shielding box B2. The phase is delayed by the stroke of λ−λ1−λ, λ−T). Similarly, the ultrasonic waves A3 and A4... An are delayed by phases of 3Δλ and (n-1) Δλ, respectively. This is a high frequency current with a constant difference of ejwt, ej (wt-ψ) ... ej (wt-(n-1) に) to the magnetostrictive vibrators AI, A2 ... An, respectively, in the explanation of Fig. 1 above. Are sequentially supplied to generate ultrasonic waves, and the radiation ultrasonic beam deflection angle is + θ. Therefore, θ increases as the frequency f of the variable frequency power supply S1 increases. Conversely, if the frequency of the variable frequency power source S1 is f1 ': A [111111] EndPage: 1, the ultrasonic wave emitted from the transducer of A2 becomes the ultrasonic wave emitted from A1 at the open end face of the shielding box B2. On the other hand, the phase advances by a stroke difference of Δλ (λ 1 −λ). Similarly, the ultrasonic waves from A3... An advance by the phase of 2Δλ... (N−1) Δλ, respectively. This is for the magnetostrictive vibrators AI and A2-An described in FIG. 1 respectively. It is equivalent to that of generating a high frequency current with a constant difference of jwtl, j (wt + ψ)... ej (wt + (n1) ψ), and the radiation ultrasonic beam deflection angle becomes -θ. −θ increases as the frequency f of the variable frequency power supply S1 decreases (as it decreases). In order to make the above description clearer, FIG. FIG. 3 shows an example in which four rectangular vibrators are arranged with the above-mentioned relationship and the shielding box is omitted. The directivity factor in this example is expressed by equation (1). In equation (1), K is a constant by wavelength, θ is an angle from the front, d is a center distance between two adjacent vibrators, α is an angle determined by a fundamental wavelength and a, R is the abovementioned rectangular vibrator The directivity coefficient in one case is expressed by 5 in (Ka sin θ) R = (2) Ka sin θ. Here, each symbol of the equation (2) has the same meaning as the equation (1), and a is% of the length of one side of the rectangle. When changing from [111111] to 65 KHz, θ changes in the relation shown in FIG. Here, assuming that the angle is 0 ° in the front, θ taken in the clockwise direction is θ, and the angle taken in the counterclockwise direction is 03-05-2019 2 1 θ, in the graph frequency range of 50 to 65 KHz, the θ direction, 40 to 50 KHz In the range, it can be seen that the direction of the -θ force changes. As described above, according to the present invention, it is not necessary to use a phase adjuster (by changing the distance between the radiation surfaces of the transducers and arranging them, and changing the power source frequency to change the ultrasonic beam deflection angle). Because it can be varied freely, an extremely easy-to-handle and compact device can be created as compared to the prior art. In the case of the above embodiment, the radiation surface of the vibrator is displaced to align the opening end face of the shielding box. Conversely, the same effect can be obtained by aligning the radiation surface and shifting the opening end face of the shielding box. Also, in the example of FIG. 2, the shielding box is not necessarily required. It is desirable to use a wide band as the above-mentioned vibrator. 03-05-2019 3
