Effect of Residual Stress in Ductile Iron Component on its Natural Frequency
In the paper four components of ductile iron cast in different stress status, including the cast status, the status of vibratory stress relief and the status of thermal stress relief with 3 months of the natural stress relief and 10 years of the natural stress relief, are selected.X-ray diffraction method is used to measure residual stress and experimental modal analysis is for measuring natural frequency. A quantitative relation between residual stress in ductile iron cast component and its natural frequency variation is obtained. Thus we provide a reference for using natural frequency to evaluate the macroscopic residual stress of ductile iron material component. The results show that the peak value variation of macro residual stress in ductile iron component have a logarithmic relation to its natural frequency variation, and same as the mean value variation in macro-residual stress and its natural frequency variation.
