XRD Residual Stress Measurements
  • Welds– Stresses introduced by welding. Evaluating stress reduction strategies.
  • Evaluate Surface Treatments– Shot Peening (Very Important) – Anything that is peened needs to have the residual stress measured.
  • Understand effects of mechanical working processes– such as machining, rolling, forging, extruding by measuring the residual Stress.
  • Measure base line stresses –in unloaded components and operational stresses in loaded components
  • Failure Analysis– If a part fails. Residual stress needs to be considered.
  • Crack initiation and propagation – highly dependent on residual stress.
  • Heat Treatment– Used to reduce stresses. Residual stress needs to be measured to ensure process worked correctly.
  • Fatigue Life(How long a part lasts) – Highly dependent on small changes in residual stress.
Impulse Excitation Measurements 
  • Measurement of the Young’s modulus, shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio, internal friction and resonant frequency according to ASTM E1876-15 at room temperature.
