Abstract

Techniques have recently been reported for the ultrasonic measurement of stress.1–3 In these, the effects of texture are suppressed by comparing the velocity of two shear waves whose directions of propagation and polarization have been interchanged. Here, an alternate goal is described. It is desired to enhance, rather than suppress, the textural effects so that the preferred orientation of crystallites can be determined.
