    Abstract

    While residual stress measurements using ultrasonic techniques have been under development for some time, practical applications are still limited. One of the difficulties is the lack of suitable reference samples for instrument calibration. This paper specifically addresses the question of how to produce a known stress-state reference sample, and ultrasonically determine its zero stress state. The approach was to design and construct a sample possessing residual stresses that can be deduced from established theory. A shrink-fit ring-plug assembly was fabricated from carefully screened aluminum bar stock, forming a disk suitable for both longitudinal and shear wave calibration. Here we report results using longitudinal waves.
