It is well known that the process of heating and then cooling dissimilar materials introduces considerable stress at and near the interface. In this article, first, the surface wave velocity distributions obtained with the curve technique were found to compare well with residual stress distribution measured by the finely collimated X-ray diffraction technique. Second, a delamination was introduced at the interface. The curve technique was then used again to measure the surface acoustic wave velocity along the interface. The defective specimens showed significantly different patterns of surface acoustic wave velocities. Thus, this study presents useful guidelines in discriminating between sound and defective ceramic/metal joints by scanning acoustic microscopy.
