Residual Stress Analysis of Austenitic Steel Designed for Nuclear Energetics in Surface Layers


Article Preview

Monitoring of residual stresses in components can be useful in predicting damage incidences caused by workload over lifetime of components. Non-destructive measuring and evaluation of residual stresses and chemical properties of stainless steel sample and its possibility to affect functional properties of the material by using the X-ray diffraction has some advantages. Measured sample or part does not require special preparation or destruction and so it is capable to operate after measuring. This method also determines orientation of residual stress, so it is possible to identify absolute values of shear and normal stress with high accuracy.
