Knowledge of the velocity of sound waves in a medium allows one to characterize many aspects of the medium. It enters directly into determination of the adiabatic compressibility, the adiabatic bulk modulus, and the acoustical dispersion. Its variation is associated with anisotropic behavior. This anisotropy is evaluated in the recently developed resonant ultrasonic spectroscopy (RUS) technique from which one can evaluate elastic moduli of anisotropic samples.
