Resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS) is an experimental method to measure elastic and anelastic properties of materials. The RUS experiment is conducted by exciting a specimen with a simple geometry and measuring resonant frequencies. From the resonant behaviors, both elastic and anelastic properties of the sample material can be extracted. This paper investigates the sensitivities of measured resonant frequencies to changes in elastic constants for an isotropic material and anisotropic material with cubic symmetry. Also under investigation is whether different specimen geometries increase the sensitivity of RUS; in other words, a path for optimizing the reliability of RUS data is explored.
