Ultrasonic Technique for Residual Stress Measurement in Ductile Iron Continuous Cast Round Bars



An ultrasonic technique using critically refracted longitudinal (LOR) waves was used to determine the residual stresses in ductile iron bars in the as-cast, annealed, normalized as well as quenched and tempered states. The results conform to expected trends based on differential cooling rate and phase transformation effects.
