Abstract:

Work performed on the initial tasks of the project study of residual stresses and distortion in thick plates, cylindrical shells and bronze weldments is summarized. Results on the final tasks are detailed. The developed analytical models for the calculation of residual stress relaxation during stress-relief heat treatments are presented. The model predictions are compared with experimental results obtained with edge welded HY-130 and 304 stainless steel plates. Finally, computer programs and manuals developed during this study are presented.
