Measurement and Significance of Residual Macrostresses in Steel 640062
A review of pertinent literature reveals that the origins and effects of residual stresses are understood sufficiently that the design of products and processes can be used to control residual stresses and obtain improved fatigue performance. The growing volume of residual stress data has been obtained largely by mechanical dissection and X-ray diffraction methods. Reports of cooperative work through S.A.E. Division 4, I.S.T.C. have played an important role in the development and application of residual stress information.
