An Advanced Residual Stress Determination for 3D Cylinder Structure


Article Preview

For measuring in-depth residual stress in 3D cylinder structure easily in this paper, the semi-destructive incremental hole drilling technique combined with finite element method is used, the calibration coefficients of 3D cylinder components are calculated, and the relationship between strain and stress is determined, the changes of calibration coefficients are analysed, the residual stress of one steering joint of automobile is measured, and the errors of residual stress are discussed.
