Abstract

In this article, the effects of uniaxial compressive loading on the ultrasonic scattering from polycrystalline grains are shown for 10 MHz ultrasound in annealed, 1018 steel. The results show a decreasing value of the stress-dependent backscatter coefficient for normal incident ultrasound when the compression loading is perpendicular to the scattering direction. The change due to scattering is about 2 orders of magnitude greater than changes observed by others using ultrasonic wavespeed measurements. It is anticipated that this research can serve as the basis for many methods associated with nondestructive determination of stress in structural materials.
