Abstract. Based on acoustoelasticity theory, the relationship between ultrasonic and stress in mechanical component is researched. Further, the principle, method and technology of exciting ultrasonic critically refracted longitudinal wave is analyzed. In order to ensure that test results are exact and realization of quantity traceability, the calibration technology of ultrasonic testing residual stress is studied. At last, the ultrasonic stress testing and calibration system is established. This technology now is widely used in testing residual stress in high-speed rail and petroleum pipeline.
