The use of mechanical resonances to determine the elastic moduli of materials of interest to condensed-matter physics, engineering, materials science and more is a steadily evolving process. With the advent of massive computing capability in an ordinary personal computer, it is now possible to find all the elastic moduli of low-symmetry solids using sophisticated analysis of a set of the lowest resonances. This process, dubbed “resonant ultrasound spectroscopy” or RUS, provides the highest absolute accuracy of any routine elastic modulus measurement technique, and it does this quickly on small samples. RUS has been reviewed extensively elsewhere, but still lacking is a complete description of how to make such measurements with hardware and software easily available to the general science community. In this article, we describe how to implement realistically a useful RUS system.
