The subject of anisotropic elastic constant determination with a practical one-sided, multi-mode ultrasonic technique is presented along with comparisons with a more traditional cube cutting technique. Results are presented for destructive static compression tests as well. The Young's Moduli calculated from the measured ultrasonic velocity measurements are shown to compare favorably with those obtained from destructive static compression tests. Limitations of the one-sided method are discussed and further research efforts are also suggested.
