In this thesis a theoretical model that describes particles impacting with a circular plate, the resulting flexural vibrations of the plate, and its detection by an ultrasonic transducer, is described. Using a variety of approximations, an analytic expression for the plate vibrations is derived. This is then expressed as a Fourier series and an analytic expression for the frequency of the first main peak of the spectrum is obtained.
