Paper Title:
Residual Stress Evaluation of Ni Based Weld Metal Using Neutron Diffraction Method
  Abstract

Residual stress generated in Type-316 austenitic stainless steel butt-weld jointed by Inconel-182 was measured using a neutron diffraction method and compared with values calculated using FEM analysis. The measured values of Type-316 austenitic stainless steel as base material agreed well with the calculated ones. The diffraction had high intensity and a sharp profile in the base metal. However, it was difficult to measure the residual stress at the weld metal due to very weak diffraction intensities. This phenomenon was caused by the texture in the weld material generated during the weld procedure. As a result, this texture induced an inaccurate evaluation of the residual stress. Procedures for residual stress evaluation to solve this textured material problem are discussed in this paper. As a method for stress evaluation, the measured strains obtained from a different diffraction plane with strong intensity were modified with the ratio of the individual elastic constant. The values of residual stress obtained using this method were almost the same as those of the standard method using Hooke’s law. Also, these residual stress values agreed roughly with those from the FEM analysis. This evaluation method is effective for measured samples with a strong texture like Ni-based weld metal.
