Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Ultrasonic wave propagation in prestressed materials has been studied extensively in the last 40 years. Most of this work was concentrated on the effect of stress on the velocities of different types of ultrasonic waves in homogeneous materials. Actually stresses affect not only wave velocities but also the boundary conditions at the interface. Many practical applications of ultrasonic stress characterization involve wave propagation through the interface between fluid and solid or two solids. In immersion measurements one needs to consider the effect of stress on wave propagation from fluid to solid. This leads to change in propagation direction and energy redistribution. Also additional modes could be excited leading to stress-induced birefringence. These are all important phenomena which require rigorous quantitative description since the stress effect in general is very small. Another important problem is ultrasonic characterization of residual stresses in composite materials [1]. It involves wave propagation through an interface between layers with different properties and stress levels.
