Abstract : A description of techniques utilizing transverse ultrasonic waves to measure stress within materials was given. It was established that the method measures stress rather than strain in materials. The stress measuring technique was used to obtain dynamic stress-strain characteristics of materials in conjunction with standard methods of measuring strain. Measurements were performed on a variety of materials including Al, steel and brass, at a frequency of 14,000 cps. Certain similarities between magnetic and mechanical behavior of materials were discussed. (Author)
