Acoustoelasticity, Theory and Experiment



L Jiang, Regis J. Kline, Y Yacobi, E Drescher-Krasicka


As a promising tool to characterize residual stress in engineering structural components, acoustoelasticity has been the subject of a great deal of research over the past forty years. Although considerable achievements have been derived, most approaches of residual stress analysis are limited in their utility due to using contact, shear wave transducers which preclude the ability of scanning large area, inability to resolve the dependence of stress on depth, and difficulty in making accurate time delay measurements for very small acoustoelastic effect observed for most practical materials.
