Introduction to Papers Presented at the Symposium on Ultrasonic Measurements of Stress



Ultrasonic measurements of the variation of elastic modulus with stress have been done for more than 30 years. The inverse problem of measuring residual stress by ultrasonic means is still poorly understood. As a result, the measurement of residual stress by ultrasonic means has not been a successful engineering method. A symposium describing the present state of the art has been held and the written record of some of the contributors to it is presented by the following set of papers.
