    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 03.01, 2011 Provides a means for evaluating both systematic and random errors for ultrasonic speed-of-sound measurement systems, which are used for evaluating material characteristics associated with residual stress and which may also be used for non-destructive measurements of the dynamic elastic moduli of materials.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This practice provides a means for evaluating both systematic and random errors for ultrasonic speed-of-sound measurement systems which are used for evaluating material characteristics associated with residual stress and which may also be used for nondestructive measurements of the dynamic elastic moduli of materials. Important features and construction details of a reference block crucial to these error evaluations are described. This practice can be used whenever the precision and bias of sound speed values are in question.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
