Residual Stresses/Strains Analysis
Pp. 84-96 (13)
X-ray stress measurement method takes advantage of X-ray diffraction phenomena and is used to obtain the stress in
metallic materials, ceramics and polycrystalline aggregates by measuring their lattice distortions. This method has
salient features: a) the measurement is non-contact and non-destructive; b) not only the added stress but also the
residual stress is measurable; c) exceedingly small portions (approximate 1mm2) in a thin layer (a few μm or less) of
the sample are examined. This measurement technique is especially effective, such as....
