Abstract: This paper presents a new method for determining the third-order elastic constants (TOECs) of a homogeneous isotropic material utilising the acoustoelastic effect associated with Rayleigh waves. It is demonstrated that the accuracy of the evaluation of TOECs can be substantially improved by supplementing the classical equations of acoustoelasticity, which describe the effect of applied stress on bulk wave speeds, with the nonlinear characteristic equation for the propagation of Rayleigh waves in pre-stressed media. The developed method can be readily implemented for Structural Health Monitoring applications; for example, the measurement of applied stresses based on the acoustoelastic effect, or the monitoring of near-surface microstructural damage based on the change in magnitude of the TOECs.
