Abstract

The contour method, a newly-invented sectioning technique for residual stress measurement, has the potential to measure the cross-sectional residual stress profile of a weld in a simple and time-efficient manner. In this paper we demonstrate the capability of the contour method to measure cross-sectional residual stress profiles, which are compared with neutron diffraction measurements and show excellent agreement. The results provide useful information for safety-critical design of welded components and optimization of welding parameters, and also illustrate the potential of the contour technique as a powerful tool for residual stress evaluation.
