A Novel Acoustoelastic-Based Technique for Stress Measurement in Structural Components Conference Paper uri icon


  • The acoustoelastic theory has been widely utilized for nondestructive stress measurement in structural components. Most of the currently available techniques operate at the high-frequency, weakly-dispersive portions of the dispersion curves, and rely on time-of-flight measurements to quantify the effects of stress state on wave speed. This adversely affects the sensitivity and accuracy of such techniques, and renders their accuracy limited by the precision within which time-of-flight can be determined.
