Title Efficient use of available techniques to measure residual stresses in welded components.
Abstract As the design of engineering components becomes less conservative, there is an increasing interest in how residual stresses affect mechanical properties and how to estimate them practically. Experimental measurements are essential to establish a quantitative understanding of the sign, magnitude and distribution of the residual stresses around the weld, within acceptable limits. There are many methods for characterization of residual stresses in engineering components. Measurements of residual stress can be very expensive and time consuming. Before selecting one method over another, it is important to consider the advantages and limitations of those techniques to optimize the benefits of the investigation. In this paper, destructive, semi-destructive and non-destructive techniques are reviewed. The focus is on the application of these techniques to the quantitative measurements of residual stress in the welded components.
