Abstract:

The principles of the X-ray method of measuring residual stresses are reviewed, with special emphasis on the latest developments in both procedures and equipment. Rapid in-the-field measurements are now being performed. It is possible to obtain stress gradients without layer removal and to obtain the entire stress tensor not just the surface stress. Author
