The nonlinear ultrasonic technique (NUT) based on the contact acoustic nonlinearity (CAN) has been considered as a promising method for the closed crack detection. However, most of the previous studies were limited to the modeling of the second-order harmonic wave generation at contacted interfaces and its verification by testing artificially contacted interfaces in the through-transmission method. In this study, we investigated experimentally the contact acoustic nonlinearity at a real crack by using the measurement system constructed in the pitch-catch method that permits the transducers to access the only single side of a test structure. Results showed that the magnitude of the second-order harmonic wave represented the existence of the closed area clearly and that the crack sizing performance was greatly improved by the combination of the linear and nonlinear ultrasonic techniques.
